The Maxi-Cosi Stella might as well have a picture of a dog walker on the box! It's small and compact so will fit in your car boot leaving enough space for your four legged friend too! The all terrain tyres can spring into action on those more rugged walks and give an equally good ride on more urban street walks too. The Stella boasts a parent facing seating option so you can chat to your child whilst out on your walks. Though on the narrower side, the seat of the Stella has the advantages of being long to accommodate older passengers too.
The City Versa GT is a dog walkers dream. The four 8" lightweight wheels are foam filled so there's no jaw dropping, hair pulling moments when you run over a thorn when out in the woods! The generous seat unit can be parent or world facing and is brilliantly padded with several recline positions. The Versa GT's party trick is it's Quick Fold Technology which means it can magically (well...near enough!) fold without the need to remove the seat from the chassis and with the seat in a forward or rear facing direction. Great tyres, awesome fold, roomy seat - that's the City Versa GT.
The phil&teds sport has long been favoured by off roaders and outdoors lovers. The three 12" air filled tyres will take you over any terrain that you might come across whilst out walking man's best friend. The sport has had a brand new facelift for 2016 and includes some great upgrades in its super soft fabrics in five lovely colours. The lovely light frame is easy to push up hills and over fields and has the added advantage of an intelligent auto-braking system - just in case you might stumble or trip whilst throwing a ball for fido.
If you want to look the bee's knees when walking the dog then the Peach All-Terrain from iCandy will make you feel a million dollars, even when your knee deep in mud and sporting your best pair of wellies. The Peach All-Terrain boasts all the luxuries of the signature iCandy Peach but with three pneumatic wheels to make sure your little one has the smoothest of rides no matter where your walkies might take you. The extra large basket on the Peach All Terrain is even big enough for your dog to hitch a cheeky ride in if their little legs get tired too.
Perfect for the more extreme dog walkers, the Nipper V4 is engineered for the toughest of terrains. You can walk for miles with your four legged friends and your baby can sit safely and comfortably in the light and breezy, large seat of the Nipper. The adjustable handlebar and easy to use brake pedal are just a few of the features which make this pushchair a dog walkers dream. Although not parent facing, the peek a boo window in the hood makes it easy to check on baby and this from-birth pushchair folds to a flat package too. Simple is definitely effective in the case of the Nipper V4.
