new pup transport

got my new aosom dog trailer today,unfolded it ,attached all the reflectors,aired the tires up after installing some liners and sprayed the whole thing down with Febreeze,because it really smelled bad-but all three of my pooches took a jump in it(bride just shakes her head cause she has to drive 20 miles to work)but I think it will fit my Boxer good even when she's grown-she's five months now and about 40 pounds.have three trailers now,so I guess it's time to hitch them all up and train it!

I'm envious. I'll have to build or modify a trailer to fit my dog in it. She's a small greyhound (about 55 pounds) but tall enough that a normal trailer is too small.

^ This!

That looks like a really nice trailer. I just don't have the money for those kinds, but I'm working on getting my boys (Beagle and Jack Russel) used to riding in the Instep Journey. I admit, cold weather and laziness (plus lack of convenient hot dog treats) means it is slow going.

The red trailer was inexpensive,the other two I was given and I converted-ya a wool blanket on the floor is good for her cold morning rides
