I’ve heard rumors that some parts of the country may be cooling off, but, where I live, we still have another month or two of steamy weather. And, as much as I’m over the heat, my dogs hate it even more than I do. In fact, when I try to take them for a walk, they just lie down in the first spot of shade and refuse to budge. So I’ve been getting a lot of use out of myIBIYAYA Elegant Retro Istroller.
Here’s what I love about it.
My favorite thing is that, unlike a lot of strollers that accommodate only the smallest dogs, this one can handle up to 70 lbs. Between that and the roomy cabin space, I can take all three of my fur babies without them being on top of each other (although they frequently opt for a pile of noses, paws, and tails anyway!).
It also opens from either side, which is nice if your dogs are lazy like mine and don’t want to scoot over once they’re comfy. I often start loading from one side and then move to the other when somebody refuses to move.
The handlebar is adjustable, which is a big deal for me, since I’m really short. I imagine it would be just as appealing to someone who’s on the tall side. So many things are designed for people of “average” height that it’s really nice to find something that adjusts to fit you just right.
The lightweight aluminum frame is easy to fold and store.
There’s a big cargo area under the seat so that I can carry drinks, snacks, and waste bags for my dogs. There’s also a cup holder so that I can keep my own drink near at hand. That comes in handy when it’s so hot your glasses steam up as soon as you walk outside.
It’s got a net that keeps mosquitoes out without compromising ventilation. Have you ever encountered southern mosquitoes? Believe me, I’ve often been tempted to climb inside myself to get away from the annoying little pests.
The inner padding and all of the fabric are removable and washable for easy cleaning. That’s not such a big deal to me right now, but I know that in a couple of months, when my lazy puppies agree to walk part of the time, I’ll be dealing with wet, muddy paws (and other canine body parts). I’ll get more than my money’s worth out of this feature then!
Just because I’m a “dog lady” doesn’t mean I’m don’t like my fashion! The Elegant Retro I comes in three great-looking color combinations: pink/walnut, green/gray, and sky blue/navy.
These long months of ridiculously hot weather have turned my dogs into couch potatoes, so we’ve been using this stroller all the time. Even when it cools off, though, we’ll still use it for the times when they get tired or when it just isn’t convenient to have them running around, like when we’re out in a crowd. What’s your favorite way to use your pet stroller?
