One of the appealing things about a dog stroller is that they can be highly functional, perhaps even multifunctional items. Therefore, the first notable element about the Sepnine dog bike trailer as well as a jogger stroller, is that it is sold as a 2-in-1 model, presumably making it twice as functional and beneficial for the user. The first function here is the bike trailer for the animal to ride behind a bike on days out. The second is the use as a jogging stroller, where users can push larger dogs along themselves at a faster pace. It uses two large 16 inch rear wheels and a smaller swivel 6’’ wheel at the front for improved maneuverability for this purpose
It doesn’t look as though it should be a good jogging dog stroller because of the size, but there are many happy users that are pleased with the features offered
This is sold as a stroller for large sized dogs, with a highlighted capacity of 88 lbs. This means a big steel frame and a high canopy. The enclosure is essentially designed so that dogs can sit inside if they want, rather than remain constantly lying down. Despite this, there are some owners that question this weight allowance. Some say that they tried it with lighter dogs and found they struggled to turn around. This is why it is better to go with the dimensions and understand the needs of in individual dog. If the 20’’ height still seems too low, and the 13’’ width too limiting, go for a bigger model. Stroller weight is 38 lbs.
This size and shape therefore means that it could be a little cumbersome for some owners. On a related note, it should be highlighted that this is a model that folds down for storage, so that large size can decrease for transportation in a car. There is the promise of easy assembly here and, aside from a couple of issues with the fixtures of the crossbar, most can handle this job with relative ease. When set up, this enclosure provides a spacious, protective area for the animal, with a large front door with a clear, waterproof viewing window onto the outside world.
Finally there are the safety features that have been put in place to ensure that the animals are protected on long journeys and against other riders. Sepnine has included plenty of cushioning to soften any bumps in the road, a leash inside to restrain the dog if required, reflective elements and a safety flag. This, alongside the weatherproofing and breathability, mean that must animals should be happy riding in this trailer.
