  • Pram for Bub and doggie walks

    First timer here, first bub on the way in feb! We have a Labrador we walk often in the parks, and live in a hilly area with footpaths and tracks. I am not a fan of bulky items though, so it’s been a big dilemma for me on which pram to get!

    We do have a big boot in our SUV but that’s where the dog rides too, and we want him to have the space and be safe - nothing hitting him when we steer, brake etc.

    Question !

    Which compact and easily foldable prams have big wheels and good suspension that I should look to buy?

    I’ve been swayed from Babyzen Yo-yo to City Jogger City Tour 2, towards the Bugaboo Chameleon. Lady in store suggested Bugaboo Ant over Bugaboo Bee5. I’m now also thinking Bugaboo Fox or Joolz Hub etc.

    What have you tried and worked well for you that is similar to my needs?

      Just to add...gt is easy fold, under 10kg, good suspension, not bulky and will be great for walking.

        City Mini GT. The yoyo and tour are travel prams- I wouldn't use one of these as my everyday long walk pram (we have a MB nano but it's our travel pram only).
        City Mini GT is light, easy to fold and good for walks that are on paths and light off-road.
        It also folds small enough that it and the dogs can both fit in the boot (4wd) for when we all go somewhere

          Thanks ladies. Are the suspension good in the BabyJogger City Tour for rocky paths? Are the tyres foam and large?

            City tour is a travel pram hun. City gt is what you should have a look at.

              BabyJogger GT is a 3 wheeler. It seems like all terrain ones are often 3 wheelers not 4.

              How do you find 3 wheelers? A gf was saying it gets a little unstable in the front and may tip.

                The GT is awesome. You’d only have a danger if it tipping if you hung a heavy bag over the handle. Otherwise it’s fine.

                  Can definitely recommend the city mini gt, city elite or bugaboo buffalo all fabulous off road prams. I’m not familiar with the Joolz hub but the bugaboo fox replaced the buffalo so I assume it’ll be similar. I’d stay away from the cam or ant and city tour- they’re not designed specifically for long walks with the dog, more travel/ shopping centres. I have a walking pram and a shopping pram but much prefer my walking pram over the shopping one.

                    Baby jogger gt is really good. We used it for 5 years and it’s still in excellent condition.

                      Yep. We have had our second hand one for 5yrs now, and still going strong!

                        I have a bugaboo buffalo... and two dogs! It’s very heavy and bulky, apparently the new replacement model is a bit lighter but still heavy (the buffalo has been discontinued) I have a Subaru Forester and there isn’t enough room for the pram/bassinet and one dog in the boot... but once your little one is big enough for the seat, you can fold it down in one piece without having to remove the seat like you do the bassinet so you may have enough space then (although I have yet to figured it out)! It handles well off road, we go to the park everyday but saying that our sidewalks are worse! I’m a bit envious of the sleeker more stylish prams at mother’s group, the reds baby looks so easy to use, but the bugaboo is what was recommended for our needs, I’m now looking at a new vehicle with more room instead!

                            Mountain Buggy and BOB are my favourite brand of walking prams.

                            My youngest is nearly 4 so I rarely use a pram now and sold any expensive ones I had, but when I ocassionally still need to use one I have an old Phil and Teds 3 wheeler for walking and a Mountain buggy nano for travel.

                            If you want small but still good for walking Mountain buggy's are great, take a look. Swift is the smallest and still pretty good on rough roads, but even the bigger ones still fold down decent
