First, I just want to thank this community for being here and having so much great information to help getting through this very difficult time. My fur baby, Lily, will be 3 weeks post-amp tomorrow on her front left leg and has been doing better every day. She has OSA but all other x-rays and tests have looked good. So we are hopeful but know there are no guarantees. Lily will be 12 years old at the end of April and has been very active, loving walks and hikes. Since we know we cannot do what we have in the past, I have been trying to find a good dog stroller for her size, 60 lb. Labrador Retriever. Seems like there is always some kind of issue with them. I wanted to check if anyone has had a good experience with a larger dog in a dog stroller. Definitely seems like air tires and suspension/shocks is key. Would appreciate any advice.

Thanks, Janette and Lily

Hi Janette and Lily, welcome! We're so glad to hear things are good for you all!

To answer your question, YES! We've had lots of good feedback about how dog strollers work for larger Tripawds. Just click on the links in your post and you'll see. We applaud you for looking into them now. They are such a great way to help a Tripawd continue to have fun with the pack and get out into the world. It's awesome that you have a good perspective on what's possible with a Tripawd. As you are no doubt learning, there are many things you can do together and still have fun.

If you find a dog stroller you like, please let us know about it OK? Or even if you find one you don't like. We count on members to share experiences here so that we can all know the best products for our awesome 3-legged heroes. 

Thanks again for joining and chiming in here!

Hi!

We just got one for Manni a few weeks back, it has air tires and suspension and we are really happy with it. it has a stroller function and you can use it as a trailer behind a bike:

Ours is a Petego Comfort Wagon, Size L. which makes its interior  90cm x  70cm (sorry, no inches here). Manni is around 55 pounds and knee high. I do feel that the stroller needs to be big enough for them to sit in without hitting their heads and this one works perfectly. From day one he jumped right in 🙂

you can see it in use here.

good luck with the search!

Interesting, Tina. I've been exploring this option for Meg. Have you used it in the countryside. How well do you think it would work on rough or muddy ground?

Oy! Meg! Are you saying you don't read our blog?? What's up with that?? 😃😃😃

yes, I have used it 'off-road '. Both, attached to  the bike and as a stroller. What I forgot to mention: we went with the expensive version because the front wheel swivels, mostly they are static and you have to push the bar down to turn corners. With the swivel wheel you just steer which is nice. 

The shocks make for pretty good going in rougher terrain. I had a little mud but not too much. (But then you wouldn't be walking in knee-deep mud anyway?!) but forest floors work fine.

Yeah you're right! I was thinking about Clare but then I probably should have addressed her 😳😊

Are there breaks on the Petego when using it as a stroller?

Nope. And you have to hold it when the dog jumps in but otherwise it's fine without.

I've ordered a DoggyRide Novel Jogger/Stroller, which looks a very similar deal to your one, Tina. The handle height is also adjustable, which is useful as I am very tall.

We had a horrible walk today (damp weather again) and I ended up having to carry Meg. I am confident that she will LOVE her very own MegaChariot, and let me know when she fancies a ride. Though what's the betting Elsie Pie will end up riding in it too....

PS I ordered it from a company called Inner Wolf, a British company, but it made me laugh cause I immediately thought of Elly.

That's a much better name for a dog chariot company than the one where I got Maggie's first ride...it was called Kittywalk!

I hope Lilly and Meg like their chariots, Maggie took to it like she was entitled.!

Kittywalk!! 😂😂😂

clare, I think I saw that one as well. But you probably need a smaller one for Meg ( and no doubt Elsie) so the adjustable handle makes sense I guess. Ours is big and the handle bar therefore is quite high. The one I got is the biggest one available over here and it just barely fits into my car.
Sorry you had such a terrible walk. I've had that before, too and carrying Manni is not an easy task...

Sorry for taking so long in replying. We got the Booyah large dog stroller. It's really been great so far! Lily loves her buggy! It is a bit wide for getting through doors if needed, but she fits in good. It's a bit of a jump into it at first but she got used to it fast and we used the harness as well to help. It's so great to take her out on her "walks". She can still take in all the views and watch the lizards. Then we let her out to explore for a bit and she'll even jump back in when she feels tired. We also took it on a dirt road "trail" by our house and it went well. Just got some extra tubes and a pump in case of a flat. We have not tried it with the bikes yet, but it does have the attachment for that. 

I would attach photos, but I cannot seem to figure out how to do that, sorry.

Thanks, Janette and Lily
