Description

If you want to get in a bike ride, but your pet isn’t up to it, you can still take them along. Perfect for cycling to the dog park - you get a workout there and back, and your pet stays safe while you’re on the road. For those who are nervous about leashing their pet to a bicycle - the HoundAbout II solves that problem and your pet will love the ride. Solvit's design features an extra-wide wheelbase and a lower center-of-gravity to provide outstanding ride stability and easier access for pets getting in and out of the cabin.

Special pockets hold plenty of gear including cellphones, keys, leash, water bottle, treats, and more. The front door on the trailer includes a zippered, mesh screen layer plus a zippered, clear vinyl layer to block wind and weather. Use them in different configurations depending on riding conditions. The over-sized sunroof provides ample airflow and room for pets to peek their heads out and look about. A removable, washable cushion keeps pets comfortable on long rides. Assembles quickly and folds down for easy storage or transport.

Key Benefits

  • Great for older pets or those with joint problems
  • Pets load easily through the zippered, rear door, and they can stick their head out and enjoy the breeze though the roomy sunroof
  • The safety leash and removable, washable cushion keep pets secure and comfortable on long rides
  • The 16-inch air-filled tires provide a smooth ride and are off-road capable (nothing too extreme)
  • Assembles quickly and folds down for easy storage

Solvit HoundAbout II Aluminum Pet Bicycle Trailer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice trailor This trailer is well made.I was a little worried that it wouldn't be big enough for my 106 pound lab.I tried it out this weekend because we had a 56 degree day.It rides really nice,and my dog seems to really like it.He can't really lay in it,but he sits in it.I think this is going to work out great,I like the idea of bringing my dog with me when I go on some biking trails.One thing that I changed was getting rid of that cheap slippery cushion.I made a new cushion with half inch plywood,2 layers of eggshell foam,and some nice durable navy material.It just fits in,it's soft and nicely padded,and it does not slide around at all.Everyone should do this,it is way better than that other cushion and it looks great.Anyone worried about how hard it is to pull a bigger dog?I was,but it is doable,a little more effort,but not too bad.Maybe it will get my legs in better shape,and I suppose if you go up a big hill you can always get off the bike and walk to the top.This is going to be fun,I can't wait for warmer weather.I recommend this for dog lovers who love to bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike Carrier This bike carrier is nicely made. Very stable and easy to set up and attach to bike. We have the medium (red) carrier for our Brittany who is currently 15 lbs and growing. He should reach 30-35 lbs and this carrier will be large enough and stable enough to carry him thru his adult hood. We have used this twice and it handles nicely up and down hills. It has large and sturdy wheels that roll well behind the bike. There is a base pad (removable and well padded) on the bottom and a strap to tie him in to keep him less mobile. We haven't had to use the tie in strap as he faces forward to see where we are going. There are tons of windows to allow him full range of sight and a zip off top which we have yet to open up. The back entry makes it a breeze to get him in .. Lots of pockets to carry water bottle, leash, treats and anything we want to take along.. This was a good investment as we bike a lot and will be able to bring our puppy along!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We'll thought out design We bought the medium trailer and an extra trailer leash for our two Jack Russell Terriers. We finally got a break in the weather and took it for a test spin. The dogs LOVED riding in it. There is plenty of ventilation, the front has a plexiglass panel that can be zipped closed to protect them from wet or windy conditions. The top may be left open so the dogs can look out, or zipped closed if they get chilly. The sides have screened panels and the back has a screened panel that unzips to allow easy entry & exit for the dogs. The trailer follows the bike nicely and tows well. The trailer also has pockets sewn into the outside of the canvas for a water bottle, leashes and treats. The cushion that comes with the trailer is comfortable and looks like it would hold up well. We can't wait for spring so we can all hit the bike trails together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hubby loves this for our dog as much as I do! My Husband is so thrilled that we can easily bring our dog with us on the cooler days {heat is dangerous for dogs}on extended bike rides through a local park system which several miles long. It takes us a few hours to navigate from beginning to end and back again . We stop & give our dog water & bathroom breaks often along the way to make sure he is comfortable. All of us, especially our dog is happy with this trailer! This trailer works much better than a dog bike basket we previously had on our handle bars. I feel much safer pulling the trailer. The trailer is very well made, tires are like bike tires, & the pockets are convenient for treats, bags, water, bowl, wipes etc. We bought the medium sized red trailer, our dog is only 6 lbs. and I can't even tell I'm pulling anything at all when he is in the trailer. The trailer works great on paved paths in the park. I haven't tried it on dirt because I think it would be too bumpy of a ride for our pampered pooch. Our dog likes to be in carriers so he took to this right away. You'll have to air out the carrier when you get it for a few days, it smells strongly of being 'new'.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stroller Option breaks We used the stroller option 2 times and on the 3rd use it broke. The front gooseneck connection to the trailer is connected by only 2 bolts and does not provide adequate strength. Chewy and Solvit we very helpful in helping us resolve this issue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I use this with the stroller conversion kit. I had a little trouble with the instructions, and found out that if you don't tighten the screws properly they're going to bend. But once it was properly assembled it works great. Use it for my 75 lb. keeshond chow mix. He can't walk anymore for any distance due to liver cancer, but I have to take my American bulldog out for a good long walk. Now we don't have to leave Wylie home and he can enjoy the walk with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny We debated for a long time about whether or not we should splurge on this bike trailer. I'm so glad we did! Very sturdy construction, easy to assemble, and fantastic quality. We recently took this on a bike ride through Yosemite National Park and it was absolutely perfect. The Large fits my 2 corgis with no problems. And they love riding in it! Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medium dog trailer The Solvit medium dog trailer is of a good and solid design. The only thing holding it back from a 5 star rating are the 1 star wheels.
