My PetIsCool.com recommends Pet Gear Travel System

MyPetIsCool.com likes the Pet Gear Travel System Pet Stroller. They say it is "Ideal for taking your pet with you wherever you go" and is a "stylish pet stroller."

The site notes that the combination pet stroller/shoulder pet carrier/pet car seat is, "Ideal for all of us who are easily annoyed by having too many things laying around."

The review ends, "it features everything you and your little friend might need including an interior safety leash to keep the little guy/girl safe, a front and a top entrance and a waterproof nylon fabric body. More at Just Pet Strollers."

Read the whole article here.

Top ten pampered pooch gifts

Merry Christmas! We hope you and your pets are enjoying the safest and happiest of holiday seasons! (Watch the holiday ribbon--we don't want any pets to end up in the emergency room today because they chewed on the wrong thing this Christmas.)

It's a little late for the holiday season (and on the opposite side of the world), but New Zealand's Fairfax New Zealand Ltd included pet strollers on their list of "Top ten pampered pooch gifts."

The article from Reuters says "Spending that would once have seemed extravagant, such as on doggy day cares, pet cemeteries and dog strollers, have become commonplace with Americans estimated to spend about $US48 billion on pets in 2007 - nearly twice the amount of a decade ago, according to consumer research company Packaged Facts." (We love our pets! What can we say?)

Number five on its list is the "All terrain dog stroller." Says the article, "Why walk when you can ride? A range of dog strollers are now on the market with price ranging widely, and including more and more snazzy versions, such as the $US400 stroller/bike trailer with optional ski attachment. Available at justpetstrollers.com."

Of course, we take offense at the idea that pet strollers replace walking for your pet. We know people say that sort of thing when they don't take a moment to consider how a pet stroller may be appropriate for older or injured pets or for people who want to safely take their pets with them to places other than a park or down the street; still, it's nice to see pet strollers getting this kind of recognition from an organization such as Reuters (and all the way from New Zealand, no less!)

Pet Strollers North of the Border

The Toronto Star has an article and nice video about pet strollers. The article focuses on the Pet Gear Happy Trails Pet Stroller. But get this--the article says it is going for $199! At JustPetStrollers.com, the same dog stroller goes for less than $80!

Of course, JustPetStrollers doesn't ship to Canada (yet), but it's still a shame to pay more than double!

According to The Star, "Dog strollers are the newest trend to hit the streets of Toronto." They mention several reasons for purchasing a pet stroller, including:
  • Nasty weather. "People don't want to drag their perfectly coiffed dogs through the slush. And the salt can sting their paws. I've seen dogs roll over on their side because they don't want to walk," says a pet boutique owner.
  • Older dogs
  • Dogs with hip ailments
  • Biking
Check out the article at TheStar.com.

Another pet stroller customer and photo

We're rich in customer comments and photos in the past week! Here is another from a customer who purchased an AT3 All Terrain Pet Stroller.

i just purchased and received a Petgear stroller from you. thank you very much for the excellent quality stroller and fast delivery.

i'm enclosing a picture of my Bulldog "Santino" in his new ride. Santino has Spina Bifida, and as a result his back legs are very very weak and he cannot walk for very long. i wanted him to be able to get out and see more of our neighborhood, etc. the way his other 2 brothers Vito, and Luigi do. (Luigi also has Spina Bifida and may need the stroller as time goes on. both boys i adopted from Bulldog rescues).

Anyways, Santino and i thank you!!! his life will be so much easier now!
We love getting comments like that!

Two nice customer comments

Two of our customers dropped us a line over the weekend about their pet strollers Here's the first:
I received the AT3 all terrain stroller yesterday.

Blaze, my 52 pound English bulldog has bad hips, bad knees and is 8 years old, so she can't get around like she used to.
I put her in the stroller yesterday and we went for a 1 mile walk--and she LOVED it!

We took the stroller out for another walk today and she is truly comfortable and happy in it. I am so glad we found you. The pet stroller will much a huge difference in her quality of life!
And the second one was nice, as well:
I just received my pet stroller a couple of days ago and I love it!!!! I have 2 indoor cats and the 1st cat meowed the whole time of her outing. However, my 2nd cat was very tolerant and I think, enjoyed all the new smells and sounds. I’m hoping in due time, the other cat will really look forward to her new adventure of the outdoors.

Thanks again for giving pet owners the choice and ability to take their little ones outdoors in a very safe stroller. It just glides and I was so surprised how easy it was to assemble the wheels and that was it. The price was right and the fast delivery was right on time for me. I would recommend you to anybody.
If you have a pet stroller and want to share some comments or a photo, please let us know!

JustPetStrollers.com and Jeep Rubicon Featured on MSNBC

MSNBC has an interesting article about plush travel gear for pets on the go. Featured in the article were the Sleepypod mobile pet bed and the Jeep Rubicon Pet Stroller.

About the Jeep stroller for cats and dogs, the article says:
The latest Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Rubicon to debut... have nothing to do with negotiating tough terrain in a 4-wheel drive that typifies life in the great outdoors. They are super-sleek pet strollers with front shock absorbers and rear safety brakes and offer pets a great view and from a bug-proof interior. They have a parent tray for keys, water bottles and other paraphernalia and are ergonomically designed for comfort for both the passenger and the pusher.
To read more about the Jeep pet strollers and other pet travel gear, visit MSNBC.

Get your pet some exercise

CNN has a great article about overweight pets, which is a sad and avoidable problem.

We've occasionally received questions about whether pet strollers contribute to this problem, and our answer is always the same: Pets need exercise! A pet stroller can allow you to do all sorts of things with your cat or dog, but it cannot replace walking, running, and exercise!

We urge all of our customers to be sure their pets are safe and healthy. If you have questions about the appropriate use for pet strollers, please let us know.

Six New Pet Strollers!

Since we launched our site over two years ago, we've never added so many new strollers at one time. JustPetStrollers.com just launched six new pet strollers in ten different colors.

Also, in keeping with our commitment to only offer the highest quality pet strollers, we removed a manufacturer from our site. To avoid any messy issues, we won't identify them, but after a year of carrying their pet stroller, we no longer felt the company offered the quality product and service we wished to offer our customers.

We've made a promise to our customers, and we intend to keep it: We won't offer anything but name brand products in which we trust our own pets! Since one supplier failed to meet our stringent qualifications, we bounced them!

But here are some of the new pet strollers you'll find on Just Pet Strollers:

Pet Gear Special Edition Pet Stroller: This pet stroller is great for pets up to 45 pounds and comes in two designer polka dot fabrics. It comes from Pet Gear, the manufacturer of popular and high-quality pet strollers such as the Happy Trails, AT3, and Jeep line. They got creative in their color naming this time--you can choose from Raspberry or Sage!

Pet Gear Sportster Pet Stroller: This pet stroller also comes from Pet Gear, and it provides an economical choice for people with pets between 30 and 45 pounds. Priced $5 less than the Special Edition and $15 less than the AT3, this stroller can handle larger pets with all the reliability and safety that comes with a Pet Gear pet stroller.

Petzip Sports XL Pet Stroller: This pet stroller offers a spacious ride for pets. It's interior dimensions are 22"L x 13"W x 23"H, offering plenty of room for your cat or dog of 30 pounds or less. Available in green or orange, this pet stroller has an extra safety feature: an interior strap that attaches to collars or harnesses, permitting you to stroller your pet with the stroller open.

Petzip Urban Vogue Pet Stroller: Here's another economical option for those seeking a nice pet stroller: Priced at less than $100, this inexpensive pet stroller comes in pink or blue, includes washable padding, and is great for pets up to 25 pounds. Like other Petzip (and Pet Gear) pet strollers, this model folds easily for storage and transport.

Two great new models from Burley: The Rover and Tail Wagon: If you have kids, you know about Burley quality (and if not, here's your chance to treat your pet better than most people treat their children!) Burley is renowned for making very high-quality bike trailers and strollers, and their testing is the standard in the industry. These two pet strollers--The Burley Rover and Burley Tail Wagon--are identical except for a couple key differences. The Rover is a bike trailer that accommodates pets up to 75 pounds, while the Tail Wagon is a convertible model that can be used as both a pet stroller and a bike trailer. The Tail Wagon also includes a kickstand, extra cargo pockets, and a removable rain cover. Plus, if you want to ski with your pet, the Tail Wagon has an optional ski kit. The Burley models are premium priced but provide the kind of reliability, safety, and flexibility you'd expect from Burley.

Those are the new pet strollers you'll find on our site. Please visit for details, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Pet Stroller recommended for Leona Helmsley's Maltese, Trouble

Here's a fun, tongue-in-cheek article that recommends how Leona Helmsley's beloved Maltese, Trouble, can spend the $12 million bequeathed following the hotel magnate's recent death. On the list are a doggie mansion, a diamond collar, a King George-style daybed, and (of course) a pet stroller. Needless to say the pet stroller was the cheapest thing on the list--by far!

Just Pet Stroller Store Ratings

Our pet stroller store just got a slew of positive ratings from customers. We wanted to share the comments, which may help you decide if a pet stroller is right for you (or if JustPetStrollers.com is the place to buy one):

Johanna of Long Beach CA on the Petzip First Class Stroller: "Very happy with the quality of the pet stroller. The price was the best I could find and it arrived within five days."

Dawne of Port Republic MD on the Happy Trails Stroller for her Cat: "I was very pleased with the great price and fast shipping when I purchased a pet stroller from them. I did comparison shopping and found that a local pet chain store was almost double in price on one of the same strollers carried on this site. JustPetStrollers.com also beat the prices of other online stores. I appreciated all the on-line information they provided about pet strollers, which helped me in choosing the right stroller for our cat. The web site seemed very personable and was user friendly. I've been recommending the site whenever someone comments on the stroller because of the super prices and quick delivery time. And, yes, Socks loves his stroller and going for his daily ride!"

Leanne of Bozeman MT on the AT3 Pet Stroller: "I had a problem with the little plastic pieces not being in the parts bag and they were essential in putting the stroller together. I e-mailed Just Pet Strollers and they promptly sent them out. I am thrilled with my purchase and would purchase from this site again. Thank you."

WD of Littleton CO on the Burley Tail Wagon Bike Pet Trailer: "Great buying experience. Would recommend to anyone. Shipped quickly, priced very competitively and no problems what so ever. Super job!"

Ivonne of Port Richey FL on the Jeep Rubicon Pet Stroller from Pet Gear: "You guys were the only ones that had strollers for big dogs that I could find. I have a Pit Bull and she absolutely adores her stroller, (so do I)."

Richard of Irvine CA on the Happy Trails Pet Stroller: "Not only is JustPetStrollers a great vendor, but it is a great product. Once you get over the slight self-consciousness of pushing your pooch in a stroller, you will love the freedom and ease of taking your best friend anywhere you go!"

Miriam of Austin TX on the Happy Trails Pet Stroller: "My shopping experience with Just Pet Strollers was better than excellent. The site is easy to navigate, the prices better than any other site I browsed and the product shipped and arrived so quickly. I was amazed. I had occasion to speak with them on the phone and they are extremely nice people to do business with. I recommend this site to everyone."

Agnes of Windsor CT on the Happy Trails Pet Stroller: "I researched far and wide before finally making the purchase and this merchant justpetstrollers has really the lowest prices for name brand merchandise. There are others that are very misleading with using name brand terms in their descriptions but one must beware! Specifically a three wheel jogging stroller is sold as AT-3 stroller but it is NOT a petgear stroller and closer inspection of the picture confirms this! This retailer carrier ONLY name brand strollers and they back up anything they sell. I have recommended them to everyone who asks me about petstrollers."

Julie of Buffalo Grove, IL on the Kittywalk Fifth Avenue Pet Stroller: "Our dog loves the stroller. It was the best solution to a dog that will not walk on a leash but likes to go out with the family. She lays down and just relaxes when in the stroller and is so happy to be included in all our family events."

Carrie of Evanston IL on the Jeep Wrangler Pet Stroller: "The Jeep Pet Stroller is just exactly what I wanted. My cats love it! JustPetStrollers provided excellent customer service and good prices."

Linda of Houston TX on the AT3 Pet Stroller: "This is the second stroller I have purchased from this merchant. Prices are excellent and shipping is always free. The shipment is well packaged and received faster than things I have paid extra for shipping. I had my order in less than one week, can't beat Just Pet Strollers for efficiency or price. I highly recommend this merchant."

Pet Stroller in Claire Cook's Life's a Beach

Pet strollers are getting more common and mainstream. The main character of Claire Cook's new novel, Life's a Beach, uses one!

You probably already know Claire Cook from her previous novel, Must Love Dogs. If so, then you'll be happy to know she is bringing another new character to life, Ginger Walsh. Ginger has love issues (naturally, for a Claire Cook character), lives with a cat named Boyfriend, and faces humorous challenges with family and men (also naturally for a Claire Cook character).

According to the review in the Columbus Dispatch, Ginger walks her cat in a pet stroller! Click here to read more.

Fighting like cats and dogs? A pet stroller solution!

The Dog Whisperer found a novel and very interesting use for a pet stroller. He was advising a person who had a dog and cat that wouldn't get along. The cat had taken to hiding all the time.

The Dog Whisperer diagnosed the problem as being with the cat and not the dog. The kitty was acting aggressively towards the puppy, and once the canine took umbrage and started pushing back, the cat would run and hide.

Cesar worked on getting the cat to be less aggressive, but he also had to work with the dog to begin to accept the cat and to act gently toward the cat.

What do with this situation? Here's a very interesting idea: Use a pet stroller! The Dog Whisperer placed the kitty in the stroller and took the dog and cat for a walk. The idea was to have the dog begin to associate the cat as being part of his pack. It seemed to work!

So, there you have it! Another interesting use for a pet stroller!

JustPetStrollers.com receives Excellent ratings

On this blog, we used to brag about all the positive ratings our site (JustPetStrollers.com) receives every month. While we're proud of that fact, it didn't seem like very interesting information for you readers.

But, every now and then it doesn't hurt to do a little bragging, so here goes: JustPetStrollers.com has maintained consistently strong ratings from people who purchase dog strollers and cat strollers.

How strong? We've sold over 6,000 pet strollers across the USA, and over 92% of the ratings we received are "Excellent." And another 6% have rated us "Good." It's hard to please all of the people all of the time, but we do our best. In the past month, here are some comments received by JustPetStrollers.com:
  • The stroller arrived quickly and was assembled with no problems. Much to my surprise, my 14 yr old (almost blind) has taken to it and now enjoys walks with us.
  • Great Quality Stroller, Superb Price, Fast Shipping, I cant say enough great things about JustPetStrollers.com PERFECTION!
  • I am recommending Justpetstrollers.com to all my friends. The service, the product, the price and the speedy shipping were all excellent. Thank you.
  • Very happy with JustPetStrollers! I tried ordering this same stroller from (a competitor that will go unnamed) and that was a horror story! JustPetStrollers did exactly what they promised. It was a great experience & I will definitely recommend them! Thanks so much.

If we can be of assistance to you as you select or purchase a pet stroller, please visit our site.

The connection between baby stroller and pet strollers

The Nantucket Independent has an article by Jan Jaeger, owner of Geronimo's, Ltd., a Nantucket pet supply and gift shop, and member of Dog and Cat Writer's Associations of America. The article is interesting in that it points out something we pet lovers already know--"What matters is that people are caring for a beloved family member, whether a child, a pet, or both."

The connection between products for children and products for pets and dogs is strong. The article notes two examples:

The parent company for Pet Gear, Inc., the (pet) stroller/play pen company,
is Vermont Juvenile Furniture, makers of children's furniture. Bamboo, started
in 2004, often uses the same products as its mentoring company, Munchkin, a
major player in the baby market for 16 years.

There's no reason why one's pet shouldn't be as protected as a child, so the fact most pet strollers are as well made as children's strollers is a good thing for we pet lovers.

Of course, not all pet strollers are made that well. At JustPetStrollers.com, we take very seriously the safety of all pets, so we've rejected some dog strollers or cat strollers that don't make the grade. If you have any questions about pet strollers, please feel free to post them here or contact our pet stroller professionals.

Pet Strollers in The Brooklyn Paper

The Brooklyn Paper has an article about pet strollers. "Hot dog on a roll: Pampered pooch pushed in stroller" is an article about Annie Carnes and “Shadow,” her Toy Yorkie.

Carnes is thrilled with her pet stroller. “It was worth every penny,” she says.

Sadly, she spent $200 on a Jeep Wrangler dog stroller in a local shop. The same stroller is available for less than $112 on JustPetStrollers.com (including shipping to Brooklyn).

Check out the article here.

New on JustPetStrollers.com

You'll find some new features and products on JustPetStrollers.com.

First, we've added new pages dedicated to dog strollers and cat strollers. Each page describes special considerations when buying a pet stroller for a dog or a cat. The pages also highlight the pet strollers best suited for dogs and cats. We hope you find this information helpful.

Also, two new products have been added to the site. The first is the Petzip First Class Pet Stroller. This three-wheeled pet stroller is for pets up to 40 pounds, can be used open or closed, and includes a safety belt you can attach to your pet's collar to be sure he or she stays in the stroller.

The second new product isn't even a pet stroller--it's a new bike trailer made just for pets! The Burley Tail Wagon can be easily connected to bikes and is great for pets up to 50 pounds. Best of all, this product comes from the company that makes high quality bike trailers for children, so you know you can trust your pet in it!

Please visit JustPetStrollers.com for more information. You'll find the best selection of pet strollers at the lowest prices and free shipping in the continental United States.

Pet Stroller Theft Caught on Videotape

I feel sorry for the small business owner in this news report from ABC7.com. A mother was arrested for using her child to help shoplift from a small pet store. A male accomplice actually grabs a pet stroller and walks right out of the store. You can see it all on videotape at the ABC site.

The mother was arrested. Why would anyone risk time in jail and having their child taken away when you can pet strollers for under $100 at many sites on the Internet?!?!

Scruffy likes her pet stroller!

Found this interesting post over on a blog maintained by Heidi Rude. She has three adorable kitties--Scruffy, Charlee & Cartier. She also has a pink Happy Trails pet stroller for her cats. She got a pet stroller for Christmas but hasn't been able to take her cats out because she lives in Minneapolis/St. Paul and the weather has been typically winter-like. Turns out Spring has arrived, and she is getting a chance to stroll her cats.

If you visit her blog, you'll find some very cute pix of her cats playing around the stroller. She also tells a funny story about her "shy" cat:

I hadn't been planning on wheeling Scruffy around in the stroller because she is
so shy and timid. I figured she would be afraid of the stroller and want nothing
to do with it. Ironically, Scruffy will most likely be the one riding in the
stroller a majority of the time as she has laid claim to it and gets upset
whenever Cartier or Charlee try to get in.

Check out Rude's Rants, Raves and Remembrances.

Empty nests breed pampered pets

MSN Money has an interesting article about the many ways people are pampering their pets. (Anyone who can great me at the door and make me smile after a hard day at work deserves a little pampering, as far as I'm concerned!) According to the article, between 2002 and 2004 household spending on pets increased 18%.

Under the headline, "The essential accouterments," a number of pet items are listed. Among them is a pet stroller, along with a link to JustPetStrollers.com.

JustPetStrollers.com on Purina's Petcentric.com

Pet strollers were recently featured on Purina's Petcentric.com. PetCentric had this to say about the AT3 Pet Stroller from JustPetStrollers.com:

Make kitty your exercise partner with the pet stroller that was designed for jogging. Your cat can get out and sniff the world while you’re burning calories. Has a tray to hold your water bottle, keys and other stuff.

Can your pet help you get in shape?

Purina's PetCentric web site has an interesting article on how your pet can help you keep in shape.

The article specifically focuses on cats. You may wonder how your kitty can keep you fit. One example is to let your cat help you keep your exercise schedule (since kitties have an impeccable sense of time).

Most of the article focuses on how a pet stroller can help you keep fit by taking strolls or jogs with your feline. Some suggestions from the article include:
  • Get a "quality pet stroller that is designed for jogging."
  • Open the cat stroller and leave it sitting out for a few days so your cat can properly mark it as her own property. Let your cat climb in and turn it into one of his or her perches.
  • Then try an indoor stroll. If your cat enjoys it, reward him or her with a treat and a pet--associate the stroller with pleasurable things.
  • Make the first outdoor trip very short and sweet, just letting him or her get used to things. Soon, your cat will enjoy the outdoors from the safety of the stroller.
You can read Purina's Petcentric article and get more ideas for using a pet stroller and acclimating you cat to the stroller at PetCentric.com.
