Strollers are not just for babies anymore.

You want to buy the best pet stroller but you don't want to pay a fortune. In order to find a discount pet stroller, you need to shop around and find out what is really important to you. By doing so, you can find the pet stroller that is not only cheap, but is also the best pet stroller for your needs. There is a wide variety of strollers on the market. Finding the one that suits your needs will take a little shopping around. Fortunately, you can do that online.

Step 1

Make a list of all the reasons you want a pet stroller. Some people want to go jogging and take their pet along. Others want a stroller for the occasional walk in the park, or transporting a pet from one place to another. Your priority for a stroller may be one that folds up easily for storage when not in use. Prioritize your needs so you are clear on what features are important to you.

Step 2

Determine what functionality you actually need. Do you need a pet stroller that is suitable for harsh terrain or are you just walking on regular paved streets? Do you really need a stroller cover for the rain or do you not go out in the rain with your pet anyway? Consider what functionality you actually need and skimp on the rest. This way, you will get a cheap stroller that is also best for you and your pet.

Step 3

Shop online for the stroller that best suits your needs. Stroller prices range from $60 to over $300. Basic strollers which do not have a lot of features will cost less, while strollers with high suspension and bigger wheels will cost more. All provide netting over them to confine the pet safely. Consider checking Ebay or Craigslist for a used stroller, but beware of getting one that is broken or has been used past its prime.

Tips

  • Try to find a stroller that converts to a pet carrier so you get two items for the price of one.

Warnings

  • Do not skimp on safety features to save money, your pet's safety should be your first priority.
