There are a few things to consider when you are looking for a dog stroller for a medium sized dog like a Basset Hound, Spaniel or Samoyed weighing between 50 to 60 pounds.
Firstly you need to ensure that the maximum weight recommendation for the pet stroller matches or exceeds the weight of your dog. Make sure the stroller is well construction and that it will handle your dog jumping in and out of it as you certainly don’t want to have to lift the dog in and out. Both front and back openings will make this easier as will the addition of a front step.
You also want to ensure that there is enough room inside the stroller for your dog to lay down comfortably and also to be able to get up and turn around if he wants to. The stroller should have adequate suspension and wheels which are large enough to handle the weight of your dog. Preferably 11 to 12 inch wheels would be ideal.
In looking at all these points, you also need to ensure that the stroller is still light enough for you to easily carry and that when folded, it will still easily fit in the trunk of your car. You’ll also want a stroller that’s easy to fold and unfold, preferably with one hand.
