5 Benefits of Using a Pet Stroller
1. An injured or temporarily disabled animal. Dogs with a broken limb still want to get outside and enjoy the sights and smells. Dogs who are stuck inside may feel a sense of anxiety and this may lead to bad behavior; like chewing on your couch. A pet stroller has excellent visibility and ventilation, which will lead to a rewarding outdoor experience. Your dog's mental health will improve and this may lead to a quicker healing process.
2. One small dog and one big dog. This is a common dilemma. The big dog can walk or run a much greater distance than the small dog. When the little dog gets tired, he can ride! You and the big dog get to continue on and you don't have to compromise your back health by carrying the small dog in your arms.
3. Airport travel. There are many airline approved carriers that are a part of a stroller system, making traveling with your pet a smooth experience. The carrier can be used as a car seat, a shoulder bag and/or a backpack.
4. An owner is older or has a disability. There are many people who want to walk their dog, but the animal pulls on the leash causing the owner to lose their balance. A stroller is a convenient solution. Pet strollers are sturdy, with an easy to maneuver front wheel, for joggers, or wheels, for other types of strollers, leading to a pleasant walk.
5. Take your pet just about anywhere! Many people do not like to leave their pet home for long periods of time. Pets get lonely just like people do. Pet strollers have zippered compartments that are ventilated so your pet can come along. Take your pet shopping, out to lunch or just around town. Most people just think you have a baby in the stroller! Many pet strollers have optional weather covers for purchase. This allows you to take your pet for a walk in rainy, windy or snowy conditions.
Pets, especially dogs, long to be outside and, more importantly, anywhere their owner is. People benefit from pet ownership by feeling a great sense of calmness and companionship. Pets give unconditional love and their bright eyes make our hearts melt!
