So remember last week when I was contacted by CSN stores to review a product. I was given a very generous gift certificate that I could use to purchase a product from one of their 200 stores. Well, since they have a pet store – All Pet Furniture, it was easy to find a product I wanted. Once I had my product in mind, I compared prices from this store to other stores, I found they were really competitive and free shipping always seals the deal for me. So once I made my choice, I put my order in. I got an email early on Monday that it shipped and it arrived by Thursday afternoon. I broke the box open and had it put together in about 1/2 hour. The wheels were the trickiest to put on, but I managed it by myself.
DH came home and looked at it and he asked what the button on the handle was for – well it’s to fold it down. Of course we didn’t know that because we never had a deal with a child’s stroller.
We first took a spin around the house. The girls seemed ok with it and even Madison liked it. Coco wasn’t 100% sure, but gave it a whirl also. Once it cooled off a bit, we headed out on the maiden voyage.
Jasmine sat up and looked around. Sweet Pea laid down and watched me out the back window the whole way. We were fine through the whole neighborhood even around the man cutting his lawn. However, they both got skittish when we had to walk by someone smoothing out gravel with a front loader. I think that was an extreme circumstance though and they just laid down to the back where they could see me. I think Coco would have been very skittish as well with that big noise. I just took the girls this time, because I wasn’t sure I could manage the dogs and them at the same time. I think I may be able to manage them all on short stints, so we’ll give that another go tomorrow.
Overall the AT3 pet stroller by Pet Gear is a quality product. I looked at a cheaper model in the pet store and I wouldn’t waste my money on that one. This one was very sturdy and I felt safe rolling the girls around in it. I found it to be good size and easy to push. It’s easy for me to handle and I’m about 5′ 2″.
I did a lot of research before hand and knew that the zipper could be tricky and the drink tray was not square, so I focused on getting those right. My zipper works fine and the mesh is all in place. I could take or leave the tray. It was a good holder for my garage door opener. The drink cups are a little small. The inside seems comfy, but not plush. I would probably put an extra pillow when the weather cools down. I could easily walk down to the post office with packages or to drop off books at the library, with the carry bit underneath. Overall I’m extremely happy with this purchase.
