Pet Gear AT3 Stroller Review

My pals, you've all heard me talk about my stroller that I love so much. I decided it's long past time I did a proper product review of it. The stroller I have is the Pet Gear AT3. The link is to the latest version of the stroller. Mine is the previous version. Here I am sleeping in it. I love sleeping in it.

Mom picked this one in particular after reading about at least three dozen different ones. She picked this one because it's very tall, about 40" when it's unfolded. This was important to mom because she's pretty tall for a lady. She also wanted one with big tires so we could go where there's mulch and hardpack and not have to stay on sidewalk. It also has a basket underneath for stuff, a bad weather cover, and a tray for drinks. You can see the basket and the tray in the picture. You can also see that the back opens for getting in and out. The front does too, but I don't have a picture of that. I always go in and out the back. It comes with a nice pad to make it comfy, but mom put my fleecy bed in it cause I'm partial to my fleecy beds. MOL. But it really doesn't need it.

You can't quite tell in the picture but it has nice big all-terrain tires. Mom takes me all kinds of places like parks and stuff cause these tires will go anywhere. It also has a very comfy ride. I've been in my stroller for hours at a time without being uncomfortable. Here I am at the park near my house. It has a nice lake.

I only weigh about 8.5 pounds, but this stroller is good for pets up to 60 pounds. Mom wanted me to have lots of room to play or to bring my friends. Here I am with Treasure. He likes to ride in it, too. See how roomy it is? (The mad face is cause Mom had the flashy box in my face again. MOL)

The most important thing is this is a good company. I had a little problem with the stroller. It folds up to go in the car, and when Mom unfolded it to take me to Blogpaws, one of the screen windows tore. It happens. Every company, no matter how good their quality control is, is gonna have something go wrong sometimes with their product. What makes the difference is what they do about it. Pet Gear stood behind their product and took care of the problem. I was very impressed with that.

This is a very good stroller. It's comfy, it's sturdy, it's easy to use, and has lots of conveniences. I give it 4 paws out of 5. It lost one paw because the instructions weren't very good and the tray was very difficult to put on. Mine doesn't have a strap inside to hook my harness to either, but I read that the new ones do. I would recommend this stroller to anyone who's looking for a stroller for their pet.

That's a really nice stroller. You are very lucky that you can go so many places and feel safe.

You know I am very envious of your stroller. Do you ever try to escape from it? M is thinking dat I might want to try to get out? M says dat she does occasionally see humans pushing a stroller with a kitty in it. You stroller seems extra nice.

Do you think I would fit in one of those strollers? My mom has considered getting one for me for long walks. It sure looks cool!

Your pal, PIp

Mario - I feel very safe in my stroller and I don't try to get out when I'm outside. In fact, in the house I hide from people, but when I'm in my stroller I don't mind when people come up to me.

Pip - The stroller is very big - big enough for a 60lb. pet. You're kind of small like me, so you would fit very well and have lots of extra room and be very comfy.

Nice review! We just got our first AT3 (our first stroller is also by Pet Gear but a lighter weight, not All Terrain model). We love it and it's good to know the company stands behind their product, too. You can see pix of ours on our bloggie.

The only problem we've had with ours is the first time using it, Teri used the 'leash' inside is attached to the 'floor' of the stroller, and Brighton got all tangled up and scared. On our other stroller, there is a ring to attach a leash to on the inside top of the stroller and that's a much better idea.

But she usually just has us wear our harness and leash and doesn't attach it to anything, but in case someone wants to see us while we are out strolling, she can unzip the hood and hang on to our leash so we don't leap out.

@Teri and the cats of Furrydance
Ours is older and doesn't have the inside leash. Mom attached mine to the handle and I somehow don't get tangled up.

I finally go reply to comments working!

I wonder if I would like a stroller. I am a very nervous kitty, but also curious! This sounds like a good one to have.

It sounds like a great idea for a calm cat. I think Chloe & Moe, who live here, would freak out! They aren't used to going outside.

You & your friend look very cute & happy in yours, though. We're glad you mom found such a perfect one for both of you!

You just gave me a crazy idea. Thanks! My dog, K, is recovering from surgery with a big cast on her front leg. Maybe I could get either a bike trailer or a stroller so that I can give her a little variety in her life without her needing to walk too far. That hadn't even crossed my mind until I read your post. Thank you!
