Things to Consider Before Choosing a Dog Stroller
1. The Stroller Weight Limit
Ensure that the stroller that you choose has the correct maximum weight capacity for your dog and that it is made from durable heavy duty materials.
2. Cabin Size
Check out the interior size of the cabin and make sure that your dog will fit comfortably and that he will have enough room to turn around and lie down.
3. Folded Size
Large dog strollers are usually longer and wider than smaller varieties to accommodate the size of a larger dog. If you plan to regularly take your dog and her stroller in the car, make sure that the stroller will fit in your trunk easily.
4. Good Quality Wheels And Suspension
Large dog strollers should ideally have pneumatic tires and rear wheel suspension to easily handle the weight of your dog and to make it easier for you to push and maneuver the stroller.
5. Sun Roof
If your dog is quite tall and likes to view the world as you’re walking along, make sure the stroller you choose has a removable top or one that can open so your dog can poke his head out.
Thank you for comparing Strollers for Large Dogs for me. It REALLY is helping me make my decision.
(I have a 50 lb, 13 and a half year old German shorthair.. He’s really slowing down with age and I want to still enjoy the outdoors with him.

Susan, we have a 13 year old vizsla about the same size. Did you happen to purchase one of these items? What did you choose?
Any great ideas for a Great Dane
at 249 pounds?
I purchased an Ansom large stroller In October after my Booyah pet stroller was stolen . The Booyah was larger inside and out and much more stable . The wheel axis on the Ansom needs to me moved back. When my dog shifts in the Ansom , it pops a wheely . Both these strollers are very similar but the Booyah seemed better made and had aluminum wheels which helps from rusting here in Florida . The wheels on my Ansom are cheap and one wheel was possibly damaged in shipping because the tire doesn’t fit right.
The Ansom has a hand break on the handle bar . Booyah had a break but not a lever on the handlebar. I haven’t decided which I like better but the lever in the handlebar has the break lines dropped in front of the back door where the dog enters. I tried moving it to the side but it stretched the line to its max and only one side of the breaks works effectively causing the stroller to turn sharply . So I will have to figure something else out or get longer break lines so my lever can be moved to one side.
The Booyah is big and bulky .
I carried it on a cargo rack on my vehicles instead of trying to fold it . I haven’t tried to fold the Ansom yet.
The front little wheel on the Booyah is larger and had a quick release that the Ansom doesn’t. This was a nice feature I miss.
My dog is a mix terrier weighing 58 pounds. She had room to lay down comfortably in both however in the Ansom, she has to be in there exactly right . She is a long dog so nose to tail just fits. The Booyah had 2 or 3 more inches in length and a bit wider.
The tipping of the Ansom is a big problem for me. I can’t walk away from the stroller in fear the dog could shift her weight. The first time it happened I was started and almost lost my balance . Now I am prepared but it’s a real hassle.
The price is better on the Ansom but
I would definitely buy the Booyah again .
They just weren’t available due to covid and I didn’t want to wait a month or two for one. Had I known about the tipping problem I would have . Other than that, the Ansom is a decent option as a pet stroller if you are aware of this issue. The big wheels are great on both and are Easy to push . I haven’t tried jogging yet with the Ansom because I’m not sure how the tipping would effect that. Besides I’ve gotten lazy.
Having a stroller for my aging dog has been a Godsend and allows me to take her on her favorite walks . My next issue is she can’t jump inside anymore so I’m having to take a lightweight step stool because she’s too heavy to lift . I have found though Backing the stroller up to a curb gives her the extra height she needs for now. I added strength to the floors of both the strollers using those exercise equipment floor tile pads . The Booyah had a nice pad that came with it
But I wanted a firmer inside because of my dogs leg instability. Not feeling the bars underneath as the dog bounces around inside has made it much more comfortable for her .
