Jogger Stroller

For those who plan on running with their dogs in tow, check out strollers that are made for jogging! These tend to be more lightweight and sometimes have specific features geared towards dynamic agility - making them easier to turn and maneuver when going fast.

For example, jogger strollers typically have three thinner wheels to a regular stroller's four, and the front wheel is lockable assisting with maneuverability and stability, if these are qualities you're looking for! Jogger strollers also typically have wheels filled with air, compared to standard strollers which have wheels made of foam. The air-filled wheels will be lighter and bouncier but may stand a chance of popping or puncturing upon direct impact - just something to keep in mind.
