The Pet Gear Happy Trails Plus Pet Stroller with Weather Guard is another of those helpful little pet stroller for small dogs. Like many other in this category, it has a weight capacity of 30 lbs, with dimensions of 24x12x23. It is interesting that in addition to stating this maximum weight, they have also mentioned the maximum standing height of 22’’. This is important for all those that are thinking of getting a compact model but are worried their pet may not meet the requirements. This may be a small pet stroller, but it is formed with some clever design features and should offer a good ride.
This dog stroller has a number of beneficial features on board that buyers are keen to highlight
As the name suggests, the use of the weather guard is a key selling point as for as the company are concerned. This durable cover should ensure that all pups and elderly dogs are well protected from the elements when out on walk. This is important for ensuring that they still get their daily exercise come rain or shine. This cover is part of the “fashionable” Euro-Canopy that gives the stroller its attractive look, and it can be removed if needed on warmer, nicer days. On the subject of waterproofing and a comfortable time for the dog, this model also contains a waterproof interior pad – in case of accidents – and mesh windows all around the canopy for ventilation on hot days and protection against insects. This all-round mesh also means a good view for dogs as they cruise around.
In addition these dog friendly features for a comfortable, enjoyable ride, there are other considerations that make life a little easier for the owner pushing this thing around. Maneuverability is sometimes overlooked with these strollers, especially if they are just for walks around town, but it is provided here. There are front swivel wheels with shock absorbers, for a smoother ride, as well as rear brakes. On a related note, maneuverability and portability are not that far removed and it helps to be able to collapse and carry a stroller when needed. This option shares a common feature of the “5 second” collapsing frame and folds up for easy transportation. It also helps that it only has a light weight of 13 lbs. The icing on the cake for owners here is the addition of the “parent” tray for their own items alongside the large storage basket for everything belonging to the dog.
This pet stroller feels like a good quality model with a lot to offer
It is important to end with the note that this Pet Gear Happy Trails Plus Pet Stroller with Weather Guard is slightly more expensive than some other “cheaper” model, as it goes over the $50 mark. However this may explain the slight increase in quality in the parts and movement of the wheels compared to other models. There is lot going on here and the focus on the weatherproofing and comfort for the dog are just the start. This is a well-made stroller that both dog and owner can easily appreciate.
