AT3 Featured in "Brilliant Magazine"

Our site, JustPetStrollers.com, and one of our pet strollers, the AT3 All Terrain Pet Stroller, was featured in an article in the November 2005 issue of Brilliant Magazine. Focusing on "Texas style and substance," the November issue features Jerry Hall on the cover... and on page 54 is a picture of the AT3 Pet Stroller.

The AT3 is one terrific pet stroller--rugged, easy to fold, and spacious--so we were thrilled to have it receive this attention. Thanks Brilliant!

Uses for a Pet Stroller--An Update

We've been maintaining a running list of uses for a pet stroller, and we update it as more customers share their experiences. So, here is the latest and greatest version of all the purposes for a pet stroller. (If you have your own, please let us know!)
  • Pets at work (NEW): One customer takes her cat to work. The stroller makes it easy to do and provides the pet a safe and quiet place to retreat.
  • Older humans (NEW): We mention below that pet strollers are great for older pets who aren't as mobile as they used to be, but one customer reports the stroller is great for her 83-years-old mother: She can walk the pet and has something on which to lean as she gets around.
  • Weather emergencies (NEW): One customer said the pet stroller was great during a recent weather warning. With warnings sounding, she got her pet into the stroller. Luckily, she didn't need to move to shelter, but with her pet in the stroller and items (snacks, radio, etc.) in the pockets, she was ready if she needed to take cover.
  • Older pets: We had one customer thanked us profusely for her "brand new dog." Seems her older pooch was getting exhausted on his walk to the dog park, so once he got there the dog was too pooped to play. Now, the dog is walked to the dog park and "explodes" from the pet stroller ready to play!
  • Longer walks: One customer enjoyed exercise from long walks but her new pug was tiring out so she had to cut her usual distance in half. Now with the dog stroller, she can walk her pug until he poops out, then continue her long walks with him resting in the stroller!
  • Multiple dogs: One customer has three Yorkies and found life was much easier when they were in the stroller so they couldn't run in 3 different directions! She says, "They love it! " For multiple dogs, check out the AT3 All Terrain Pet Stroller or one of the Kittywalk SUV models.
  • Trips to the vet: I never thought of this, but she's right: One customer thinks her stroller keeps her pet safer and healthier at the vet's office. "I don't have to worry about them being on the floor with germs from other sick animals. After all, that's why most animals are at the vets."
  • Traveling: One customer who took a lot of driving trips especially liked the Kittywalk model, which includes a detachable carrier and collapsible frame--this allowed her to keep her pet secure while in the car and easily roll the pet into pet-friendly hotels.
  • Alternative to pet carriers: Rather than using a heavy carrier, some customers find it much easier to use a pet stroller (which really is just a rolling pet carrier).
  • Cats: Cats can be tough to walk on leashes--if you don't get them into harnesses at a young age, some cats will never adjust to a harness. A cat stroller is a great way for cats to get some fresh air.
  • Ice & salt in winter: A northerner reported her dogs paws were taking a beating on the ice and salt, so she purchased a pet stroller to get her dog to the parks where they can play in the snow safely.
  • Festivals: One couple liked to walk their dog to local festivals, but between the crowds, noise, and other aggressive animals, they found it stressful rather than relaxing. With the pet stroller, they keep their small dog safe and the pooch still enjoys getting some fresh air.
  • Jogging: One athletic customer reported using the pet stroller while jogging. Check out the AT3 Jogging Pet Stroller.
  • Boaters: A boater said she loved using the stroller to get her dog onto the boat safely since her pet didn't enjoy walking on the docks.
  • Injuries: Animals with certain types of injuries cannot be walked for long distances but still want to get outdoors.
  • Safety: We have customers in large cities who use a stroller to get their dogs to parks--the stroller keeps them safe on congested urban streets.
  • Aggressive dogs: Another customer had a dog that could get aggressive, so walking him in the dog stroller helped to keep him calm (and other dogs safe.)
  • Pocket dogs: Some small dogs cannot be walked very far, so customers find they can get all the way to the dog park and back if they use a pet stroller.
  • More quality time: One customer shared that the stroller simply gave her more quality time with her pet. Using the stroller, she could take her dog more places than she could've otherwise, so she and her pet were enjoying more time together.

Pictures and compliment for Pet Stroller!

We love getting pictures! Here are some shots and a message we received from a happy Happy Trails customer.

I purchased the "Happy Trails" pet stroller in pink from JustPetStrollers.com. I received it on Friday, Nov 11. I love it. I have 3 chihuahua's that fit perfect in it. Now I can take my babies anywhere with me. I received lots of compliments about it when I was out & about this weekend. I even ran into someone else who has one. Here are a couple pics of happy customers.

Thanks for sharing the feedback and the pix, Donna!

More pet stroller ideas - Bad weather and taking your pet to work

Last week, we got a post about someone who found their pet stroller useful in a weather emergency. With the dog safely in the stroller during a weather warning, he or she was ready in the event they needed to take shelter.

And here's another idea: Taking your pet to work. I found this post while cruising around the Internet:

One of the bonuses of working in an animal-friendly office is that our companion animals are welcome to visit. So today, I brought my cat Lucifer to work.

Lucifer is a very social cat, so he doesn't like being cooped up in the apartment all day. I recently bought him a Happy Trails Pet Stroller to make going out easier.

He enjoyed his first trip, where we sat in the park and he watched birds and squirrels. And I like the stroller--it's sturdy, easy to maneuver, and not too heavy. Plus, it folds up for easy storage in a small apartment.

This was posted to Lantern Books Blog by Laura Leslie.

Leslie purchased her pet stroller from another online retailer (Boo!), which means she paid several dollars more than she might've on Just Pet Strollers. So, if you're in the market for a pet stroller, be sure to price and compare--our site has many low price guarantees and after selling more than 1,000 pet strollers, we maintain a 99% customer satisfaction rating!

Cats out of doors in pet stroller

We received an e-mail from a customer who wanted to tell us how much she and her cat love the Happy Trails Pet Stroller. She likes to spend time outside and would feel guilty when she looked back to see her cat watching her from inside the screen door. Now, she rolls her cat outside with her and the cat enjoys fresh air, watching birds, and being somewhere other than in the house.

We're glad the stroller works for her cat! If you have any questions or ideas about pet strollers, please post them or e-mail us.
