Sachi is having trouble keeping up on walks because of her arthritis so I figure I need to get her a stroller. I don't know if this needs to be mentioned but my walking paths have a lot of rocks so nothing that is going to get stuck on a pebble. It also needs to be under $100. Any recommendations?
Beulah has this stroller
When we do charity walks or shelter events, she gets tired easily, and wants to get in the stroller. It is kind of a pain to push the stroller and walk her when she decides that she wants to walk. I got mine on ebay for like 40 bucks. I like that I can put my purse in the bottom and it has a cup holder.
Thanks for the reply. I've seen that stroller and similar ones. Someone complained that the zippers break easily. Have you had any problems with zippers? How big is Beulah and do you feel like the stroller is sturdy and gives adequate room?
I would recommend paying close attention to the wheels if you're going to be on anything but smooth pavement. I've read a lot of stroller reviews and many of them do not work well on rough surfaces. The larger the wheels, the better.
You may have trouble finding a good quality one for less than $100 but I would suggest checking Craigslist. I got one there (the Petzip Jogger) that was pretty much new, it costs $160 new and I got it for $80. I've heard a lot of good reviews of the Pet Gear AT3 stroller for use on various surfaces (supposedly the older model is better), so if you can find one of those on Craigslist or similar it would be a good choice.
I would suggest checking this Yahoo Group "Pet Strollers" for reviews:
Look through the posts, and also in the files section there is a 'Stroller Reviews' folder with more reviews.
They have them at Petsmart for under $100 and customers have said they work well. They sure are cute. I have a friend who uses one for her cat so she can get out in the fresh air without really being loose.
Thanks for the info and tips Dogsters. I would have loved to get a nicer model, especially one of those Pet Gear AT3 strollers, but I didn't find any used ones for sale in my area. That's what I get for living in the middle of nowhere. I ended up buying one on ebay for $60. It sounds like one of the better strollers in that price range. I guess I'll find out in a week or so. I hope Sachi likes riding in it.
