We are currently reviewing various pet strollers, and this particular post will discuss everything you need to know about the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller by Pet Gear for small dogs.

However, there are a wide variety of different strollers for small dogs on the market today, and it can be difficult to navigate the good strollers from the bad, and decide what good stroller is the best option for you. It can definitely be difficult to decipher what features are truly needed for your small dog.

This article will discuss the basics of the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller, as well as any pros, cons, and additional information you need to know in order to make the best decision for you and your family’s needs.

The Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller is a fantastic option for a small dog pet stroller for a number of different reasons, and may be a great addition for your family’s needs.

The first pro is the Air Ride Wheels. These signature wheels to the Pet Gear brand means that not only does your dog ride in style, but they ride in comfort with these tires, as they absorb the bumps of uneven terrain.

As the name suggests, the No Zip Entry is also a great positive aspect of the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller for a couple of reasons. A no zip entry means that you can load your small dog in and out of this stroller quickly without having to worry about catching their fur in the zipper. The fabric surrounding the entries seem to be a little bit more durable than the fabric on strollers that do have zippers.

This stroller also has a very open front, which helps to keep your curious dog entertained and allows them to feel the wind in their face. The fabric on this carriage is also waterproof, to protect your dog from wayward showers and makes for easy cleanup in the event of accidents.

The handle of this stroller is also much higher than other strollers on this list. At 40 inches, the handle is perfect for those who are on the taller side and who often have to hunch over other stroller handles.

Finally, the Happy Trails no Zip Pet Stroller is a fantastic option for those who have multiple small dogs or just one small to medium dog. While for some families, it is great to have a larger weight limit or room to house more than one dog, some families simply do not need all of that room. This stroller caters perfectly to those who truly need a stroller for a small dog.


There are many positive aspects to the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller by Pet Gear, there are a couple of cons that should be considered prior to purchase.

While the Air Ride Wheels may create a comfortable riding experience for your dog, some people find that trying to steer this particular stroller can be difficult. The front wheel tends to have a mind of its own at times, and the durability of hardware connecting the wheels to the rest of the stroller sometimes seems to be a little bit lacking.

Additionally, the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller also sits up higher in a number of different areas. First, the entrance of this stroller sits about 18 inches off of the ground, which is higher than many other strollers for small dogs that we have reviewed. This may not seem like a big deal for a young, agile canine, this can be a difficult height if your dog is injured, disabled, or elderly. This stroller’s handle also hits at 40 inches, which means if you are on the shorter side, this stroller may seem awkward or uncomfortable to push (although this ia good for taller people, as noted in our Pros section!)

One of the great aspects about this stroller is the fact that it is built specifically for those who only need a small amount of space. However, even with the small size of this stroller, it is fairly heavy, weighing in at 28 pounds. That means that the stroller weighs nearly as much as the recommended weight limit.

Finally, many of the people who have complaints about this stroller have concerns about how to fold this stroller up for storage and travel. Many of the other strollers we have reviewed lately are easy to fold up, the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller causes frustration in this area.

Additional Information:

There is a small mesh compartment below the carriage that allows you to transport any essentials for your pup, such as toys, water dishes, and leashes, as well as any essentials you may have as you are walking, running, hiking, or completing errands.

Additionally, this stroller contains many of the same features that other strollers have, but in many cases, cost a significant amount less than some of the other options we have already reviewed.


With so many different options on the market today, buying a dog stroller for your fur baby can be almost as difficult as buying a stroller for a human child. Safety and comfort should be number one priorities for both you and your small canine, and this stroller should be seriously considered when narrowing down your list for the best pet stroller for your needs. We hope that this article was able to help you decide if the Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller is a good option for your needs, and we invite you to check out our other reviews of small dog strollers.
