Spring is in the air and that means it’s time to get the bikes out and feel the breeze! The family loves going on bicycle rides but I always felt guilty about leaving my sweet Schnoodle at home. So I did some digging for the best pet bicycle seat.
My girl is between 17-19 lbs and it was hard to find a seat that accommodates over 12 lbs. I found the Snoozer Pet Rider Rear Bicycle Seat and I have been in love from my first spin around the block. Schnoodle fell in love too! Now bike rides include the whole family.
I obviously was looking for safety but I wanted something that she would enjoy. I wasn’t crazy about the seats that look like crates because I knew she wouldn’t be as excited about being locked up. Comfort was also a big issue as we can venture out on 5-10 mile adventures.
The Snoozer seat fit all of my requirements and things I haven’t thought about. The three point harness snaps to Schnoodle’s harness and holds her in snug. Trust me….we’ve passed others with their pets and Schnoodle was restrained in her excitement. The seat itself is super comfy but sturdy. It’s lined in quilt fleece which I thought would originally be hot but it doesn’t seem to bother her even in July and it’s very durable.
Here are some of it’s features –
- For pets up to 24-pound and a 1- Year warranty.
- Foam form with plywood reinforced base
- Cover is removable and machine washable, but requires some disassembly and removal of straps to do so. (We have not needed to do this yet, so I have no experience with removal.)
- Three point safety strap secures pet inside.
- High visibility reflective strip to cover.
Some of you have contacted my about how the seat attaches. My bike had a rack on the back when I bought it but if it didn’t I would definitely get the Explorer Rack.
As always Peace, Love, and Happiness to you all!!!
