In our past few posts we have been reviewing some of the biggest names in small dog pet strollers, and in this post, we will be discussing the No Zip NV Pet Stroller by Pet Gear. This article will give you all of the necessary information to make the best decision if this stroller is the best option for you and your family.
Small dogs are fantastic, and while there are a variety of great benefits of adding a small dog into your family, small dogs, unfortunately, do have one downfall. No matter how active they are, small dogs often times struggle to keep up with their human family members on long walks, regular hikes, and throughout daily errands. This is where a pet stroller may come in handy for you and your family.
This article will discuss one of the most popular options on the market, the No Zip NV Pet Stroller by Pet Gear, including the basic product information, the pros and cons, as well as any additional information you may need to help make your decision if this is the best stroller for your family.

One of the biggest pluses about the No Zip NV Pet Stroller is as the name suggests, the no zip entrances. Many other strollers on the market today tend to have durability issues with the zipper and the surrounding fabric, whereas this particular stroller does not have this flaw. It is also much easier to open or close this stroller with a squirming animal.
Another great feature of this stroller is the front locking wheel, which means that your animal is able to safely jump in and out of the stroller without the stroller shifting or moving.
The No Zip NV Pet Stroller also features air tires, which allows a smoother ride for your pet. This is particularly important if your pet suffers from arthritis or other chronic pain conditions. Some people find that the air tires also allow better control of the stroller as well.
Another great feature of this stroller is the attached pad that comes with the stroller. Many pets, and their owners find this is helpful for maintaining a high level of comfort, particularly for picky dogs or those who are suffering from chronic conditions.
Finally, the No Zip NV Pet Stroller is also very easy to assemble, and compared to other strollers that can accommodate the same amount of weight, it is very lightweight. This stroller can accommodate up to 70 pounds, which is a much higher weight limit than other strollers for small dogs on the market today.
While there are many great features of this particular stroller, there are some drawbacks about the No Zip NV Pet Stroller. One of the biggest concerns is that the carriage height of this stroller may be a little bit too high for particularly short dogs, or dogs who are suffering from injuries or disabilities.
Additionally, many people have found that while the Air Ride tires are fantastic for the most part, there are a couple of concerns about them that should be considered. First many have found that the hardware that comes with the stroller has a tendency to warp and become unusable rather quickly. Furthermore, while the air tires create a smooth ride, some have found that they lose air quickly and even leak to the point of being unusable.
The No Zip NV Pet Stroller also may not be the best for those who are looking to use this stroller on multiple types of terrain. While it is great for in town on sidewalks or the side of roads, gravel or rocky, uneven surfaces may not be ideal.
The carriage of this stroller also sits fairly high, even higher than other strollers we have reviewed, so it may be even harder than others for dogs who are handicapped, injured, or simply old to easily and simply get in and out of the stroller without help.
Finally, some users have found that this particular stroller tends to have some issues with the steering, making it difficult to keep this stroller moving in the right direction.
This stroller contains a good amount of storage below the carriage, which is important for long walks and to bring along any toys, leashes, or water dishes for your dog, as well as any personal effects you may need.
Additionally, the customer service of this company is praised by some, while others have not had the best of luck. This is something to consider if you do end up struggling with the quality of the No Zip NV Pet Stroller (keep in mind many people do not have problems!) you may struggle to get any issues rectified.
When you are on the market for a new stroller to cater to you and your canine friend’s needs, it can be difficult to know where to start and how to know which stroller is going to be truly the best fit for you. Particularly when strollers can be anywhere between $50 and $400, trial and error can be time-consuming and fairly expensive.
We hope that this review, and the other reviews for strollers that we have recently published, are useful in sorting through all the information about strollers on the market.
There are some definitely some issues with this particular stroller, however, there are plenty of different positive aspects of this Pet Gear option that make it a great choice if you own a small dog. Therefore, the No Zip NV Pet Stroller is a fantastic option for those who are on the market for a new stroller for small dogs.
