Abby loves her new pet stroller

We ran across this blog post about an AT3 Pet Stroller received as a Christmas gift. Linda O' Neill says that "Abby can't walk much besides around the yard any more... this will provide her with new legs."

Linda added, "Here's a picture of Abby and James heading out on the maiden voyage last Saturday. Abby loved it. She sniffed, she looked, she just enjoyed being out in the world again. Warmed my heart."

Tori Spelling Using a Pet Stroller

People Magazine featured a photo of Tori Spelling with her Walk 'n Roll Pet stroller, and it got posted all over the Internet! supplied the pet stroller to Tori and her husband, Dean McDermott.

PerezHilton, a celeb blog, spoke with Tori and found out poor Mimi La Rue is having hip problems, so the dog stroller is coming in very handy for both human and pooch! It's too had some posters on other blogs have criticized Tori for rolling her dog--they obviously don't know Mimi is suffering from an ailment, and the pet stroller allows Tori to spend more quality time with her pooch!

Tori and Dean also purchased another larger pet stroller. I wonder if we'll see them strolling Mimi in a different dog stroller model soon?

Why a pet stroller?

ver the years, we've collected much feedback from customers as to how they'll use their pet stroller or why they purchased one for their cats or dogs. Here is that running list, and if you know of other ideas or suggestions to add, please respond and let us know!
  • Malls (new): You should check first, but some customers are finding that malls will permit dogs and cats if they're in pet stroller rather than on a leash. This isn't common just yet, but who knows--maybe someday all malls will let pet lovers stroll with their four-legged friends!
  • Service Dogs (new): We've heard from several customers who take their dogs to hospitals and senior homes. Strollers keep their pets contained, but they also elevate the dog so that people in beds and wheelchairs can pet them!
  • Balconies (new): Some customers with balconies want to let their pets outside but are afraid they may decide to leap. With a pet stroller, these people can get their pets safely from inside to outside so that pets can enjoy the view with their human companions.
  • Alternative to pet carriers: Rather than using a heavy carrier, some customers find it much easier to use a pet stroller. Why carry your dog or cat when you can roll them more easily?
  • 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 rolled to the dog park and "explodes" from the pet stroller ready to play!
  • Longer walks: Customers of smaller pooches tell us that their dogs tire out on longer walks. Rather than cut short exercise, folks can walk their dogs until they poop out, then continue long walks with the dogs 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 three different directions! She says, "They love it! "
  • Trips to the vet: One customer said 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 models, which include 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.
  • 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: Northerners reports that their dogs paws take a beating on the ice and salt of roads and sidewalks. Instead, they use a pet stroller to get their dogs to parks where they can play in the snow safely. (Pick a pet stroller with larger wheels for wintertime rolling!)
  • 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 Jeep Rubicon Pet stroller--made specifically for jogging with your cat or dog!
  • Boating: 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.
  • Injured dogs and cats: Animals with certain types of injuries cannot be walked for long distances but still want to get outdoors.
  • Safety in urban aras: 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.)
  • 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.
  • Pets at work: One customer takes her cat to work. The stroller makes it easy to do, provides the pet a safe and quiet place to retreat, and keeps her pet in her cubicle rather than roaming around.
  • Older humans: 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: One customer said their pet stroller came in very handy during a weather warning. With sirens 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.

Dakota Fanning gets a pet stroller on "The View"

The gals on ABC's "The View" gave Dakota Fanning a gift this week: A Pet Gear Happy Trails Plus Pink Pet Stroller! You can see the video below.

You may want to note she doesn't receive the gift from Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie O'Donnell, and Barbara Walters until the end--about 6 minutes into the interview. Still, it's worth seeing because Dakota Fanning is cute as a button, is talented and amazingly poised, and is a pet lover. Plus, her new movie, Charlotte's Web, is coming out soon!

Pet Stroller in Boston Herald

The Boston Herald included a pet stroller from Just Pet Strollers in their list of gifts for the "pet centrist" (which they define as someone who refers to their pet as "baby" and considers Take Your Pet to Work Day the ultimate holiday. ) (Sounds like just a typical pet companion, to me!)

The pet stroller featured by the Herald was the Jeep Rubicon Jogging Pet Stroller. You can read the article entitled "Pamper your pup, cater to kitty" or click here to see more information and pictures about the Jeep Rubicon Pet Stroller.

We, of course, think a pet stroller makes a fine holiday gift for the pet lover (or pet centrist) in your life, but be sure to check out the tips for pet stroller holiday gifting on
