This is the Cadillac of pet strollers thanks to its tough aluminum frame and spacious interior, big enough for one medium or large dog or two small dogs. The stroller moves smoothly and quickly thanks to the front wheels that rotate 360 degrees. The Spruce Pets adores that the stroller is equipped with brakes to secure it in place whenever you stop. It also has a cup holder and plenty of storage pouches. The best part? All you have to do is pop on the wheels after you take it out of the box, and off you go!

Humans love the HPZ because it has Comfort-Ride wheels, ensuring your pup has a smooth ride. Dogs can’t get enough of it because it’s so roomy. There’s even an interchangeable compartment to handle pets of all sizes, explains Retrievist.

This is a top-tier choice for pet owners who want quality and portability. Despite weighing just 22 pounds, this stroller can support up to 100 pounds. If you are fashion-forward, Road Affair reports it comes in blue, midnight blue, and red.

Standout Features:

  • 360-degree swiveling wheels
  • Ample storage and cup holders
  • Comfort-Ride wheels for a smooth ride
  • Can support up to 100 pounds

This is a good middle-of-the-road option that offers an interior safety tether to keep your dog safe and a machine washable pad that lines the carriage. USA Today points out it can only carry pets up to 25 pounds, so it’s not a good option for all pet parents. It has 360-degree swiveling wheels with shock absorbers to handle even the rockiest terrain.

Road Affair agrees the Regal Plus is perfect for small pets. It weighs just 12 pounds and includes a Smart-Canopy and a huge basket with zippered storage. If you like to walk or jog, the Smart-Reach handle will be comfy enough for either activity.

If you have a heavier dog, Good Housekeeping favors the Monaco Pet version of this folding stroller. Testers found it was easy to push around a 50-pound bulldog on both cement and grass. Thanks to its aluminum frame, it’s lightweight and folds easily for storage.

  • Interior safety tether
  • Machine washable padding
  • Can carry up to 25 pounds

This budget-friendly stroller is less than half the price of the HPZ and comes with either three or four wheels. If you’re not sure if your pooch will like being rolled around in style, you may want to start with this stroller first. Veterinarian Mary Gardner told Forbes the stroller’s three peek-a-boo mesh windows are ideal since some dogs like to face out, while others like to see their human.

Just because this stroller is affordable, doesn’t mean it lacks convenience and style. It’s lightweight, well padded, has a cup holder tray, and plenty of storage. It’s so comfy to ride in, even the editors at Cosmopolitan wanted to jump in!

The VIVO Three Wheel Pet Stroller stands out for its ample storage and stylish design, according to Retrievist. It not only offers a great value compared to other strollers, it comes in five different colors and is easy to fold, making it ideal for long walks or jogs with your dog.

  • Affordable
  • Peek-a-boo mesh windows

It boasts 360-degree swiveling wheels and durable EVA tires equipped to tackle a variety of terrains. Additionally, it includes an elevated paw rest for senior dogs and can accommodate pets up to 75 pounds.

Rover.com suggests this stroller for pups with mobility issues, as it is low to the ground allowing easy access for dogs to walk or hop in. It comes equipped with additional features like a sunroof and a drinks tray. Plus, it conveniently folds flat for effortless storage in a car or minivan.

This model features dual-entry openings, allowing pets to enter from the front or back, which is especially helpful for aging or injured pets who may struggle with maneuvering in tight spaces. The spacious interior and robust weight capacity make it ideal for either a single large dog or several smaller pets, according to Road Affair.

It’s lightweight, available in four colors, and includes a convertible feature allowing the top to be unzipped for a breezy ride for your pup. It can support pets up to 33 pounds. Retrievist loves you can buy this for under $100.

Unlike many basic strollers, this model boasts cup holders and a large storage basket. Its all-terrain wheels ensure a smooth ride for your pooch, and according to Good Housekeeping, they are so affordably priced that you could opt for one in every color.

USA Today endorses the Paws & Pals three-wheeled stroller for its lightweight design and zippered back, which simplifies entry and exit for pets. However, they say that this stroller is not the best for running or jogging.
