Happy Trails No Zip Pet Stroller Review


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.

Small dogs can be fantastic for a number of different reasons, from their cuddle friendly size to their apartment friendly needs. However, small dogs can range greatly in activity levels and the ability to keep up with the activity level of their owners. This is where a stroller designed specifically for small dogs comes in handy.

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.

Product Information:

Weight Limit Interior Dimensions Weight
30 Pounds 24”L x 12”W x 22 ”H 28 Pounds
Wheel Size Tire Colors
12 Inch Air Ride 1 Front, 2 Rear Emerald, Pink Diamond, Sapphire


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.

Vivo Four Wheel Pet Stroller Review


In the past few posts we have been reviewing various pet strollers, and in this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about the Four Wheel Pet Stroller from Vivo, a great pet stroller for small dogs.

While the argument generally seems to be cat vs. dogs, I think that the real argument may be between those who are owners and fans of small dogs vs. big dogs. There are tons of perks to both small and large breeds, one of the biggest concerns about small breeds, particularly those who have particularly active owners, is whether or not their dog will be able to keep up with them during their daily exercise or on their excursions around town. This is particularly true for those who own very small breeds, breeds that have short legs, or breeds that are prone to respiratory concerns.

Of course, there are other reasons that your dog may need to use a stroller. Temporary injuries, permanent disabilities, and simple old age are all conditions that may be helped with the use of strollers, making pain management for your pet more manageable as well as making your life easier.

This article will go over the product details, the pros and cons, as well as any additional information you should consider when looking at the Four Wheel Pet Stroller by Vivo to see if this stroller is the best fit for you and your small canine’s needs.

Product Details:

Weight Limit Interior Dimensions Exterior Dimensions
30 Pounds 19”L x 12”W x 19”H 33”L x 15”W
Colors Weight Tires
Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, Pink White Polka Dot 11 Pounds 2 Front, 2 Rear


One of the biggest advantages of the Four Wheel Pet Stroller is how lightweight it is. Since it weighs only 11 pounds, this stroller doesn’t add any extra weight while you are on the walk. Even considering that this Four Wheel Pet Stroller holds up to 30 pounds, which is generous compared to some of the other small dog strollers that we have reviewed, this means you are only pushing around 40 pounds at the most. This is significantly lighter weight than many other strollers currently on the market.

Additionally, this stroller is very spacious and tall, which means that even if you are pushing around a tall small breed dog, or more than one toy or miniature breed dogs, they will have plenty of room to stand up and move around without sitting directly on top of each other. This stroller may even be a good way to take a litter of puppies to the vet!

This four-wheel pet stroller is also very easy to assemble, coming with clear instructions. Additionally, this stroller has a button for a quick release to easily fold the stroller down for easy transportation and storage.

Finally, this stroller features a top mesh window that allows you to keep your eye on your canine companions and let them feel the sunshine on their fur, and can easily be covered to protect your furry friends from the elements.


There are plenty of different great things about Four Wheel Pet Stroller by Vivo, there are some definite concerns about this particular stroller that should be considered before making a purchase.

The first problem that people have found is the durability of the wheels. It seems that in an attempt to make this stroller incredibly easy to assemble, for some, the quality of the components seems to be lacking and quickly come apart. Additionally, the material that the wheels are made of seems to make it harder to navigate over rough terrain, and the actual tires seem to wear and tear quickly.

Additionally, the stroller of this carriage sits fairly high above the ground, which means if your dog has a disability, arthritis, or injury, or if they are just rather short and don’t have long legs, it may be very difficult for your dogs to get in and out of the carriage safely and easily.

The Four Wheel Pet Stroller also has some issues with the durability of the fabric. Some have found that a determined animal, with even slightly sharp nails, may be able to quickly get through the fabric and escape into the public. Therefore, it is important to closely monitor the fabric to ensure that the stroller does not have any runs, snags, or other damage that your pet could exploit and slip through.

Finally, the last concern that people have with this stroller is the fact that the zipper can sometimes malfunction and cause problems allowing your pooch in and out of the stroller, as well as damaging the surrounding fabric. Again, it is important to regularly and carefully inspect the zipper and the surrounding fabric to ensure that nothing is damaged.

Additional Information:

This stroller features a very generous below the carriage basket, which allows you to bring any essentials you might require along with you on your walks and runs. Additionally, the stroller also features two cup holders, which means that you can stay hydrated no matter how long your walk is.


Picking out the best stroller for you and your pet’s needs can be difficult, especially with all of the various options available. This stroller is roomy enough to accommodate even tall smaller breeds, is easy to assemble for set up and fold down for transportation, and features a great mesh window at the top that allows you to keep an eye on your dog while they are in the stroller.

However, the biggest drawback we have found is the durability of this stroller may be questionable in the long run, though not everyone has struggled with all the durability issues that others have found.

In the end, this stroller is a fantastically popular option that often is at the top of its category on Amazon. We hope that this review will help you to make the best decision for you and your family’s needs, whether that is the Four Wheel Pet Stroller or another stroller that we have recently reviewed.
