If you want your dog stroller to last as long as possible, you will need to maintain it properly. Read our dog stroller maintenance tips here too.


Depending on the size of your dog stroller, storage can be quite a hassle. Make sure your dog stroller is stored in a dry place. Moisture can cause rust on metal parts and mould on the cover.


Garage or shed

You can store the dog stroller or bike trailer in the garage. In that case, make sure it is kept free of moisture. For example, putting the stroller in a (dry) garden furniture cover.


Store your dog stroller indoors by folding it and putting it in a storage room or hallway closet, for example. Remove the wheels from the dog stroller to make it just a little more compact.

Long-term storage

If you are not going to use the stroller for a long period of time, consider disassembling the wheels. This will avoid unnecessary stress on the tyres and axles.

Avoid Prolonged Folding. Leaving the stroller folded for long periods of time is not recommended as it may cause creases in the fabric. Unfold the stroller occasionally to avoid fabric folds and reduce possible discolouration due to light exposure.

Rust prevention

A stroller for your pet is quite an investment, so it is in your best interest to prevent rust. Here are some tips to prevent rust:

✔ Regular cleaning: Clean your stroller regularly with a mild soap to remove dust and dirt.

✔ Thoroughly dry: Make sure the stroller is completely dry after cleaning or after exposure to rain and pay attention to joints and cracks.

✔ Protective coating: Apply a rust-preventing spray or wax to metal parts to form a barrier against moisture.

✔ Avoid exposure to salt: If you are in coastal areas or places with salty roads, rinse off salt residue immediately to prevent rust.

✔ Store indoors: Store the stroller indoors, away from humidity and direct sunlight. If the pram must be stored outdoors, use a weatherproof rain cover.

✔ Regular inspections: Check for signs of rust or wear, especially on wheels and hinges, to address problems at an early stage.

✔ Use lubricants: Apply silicone-based lubricants (Vaseline) to moving parts for smooth operation and to prevent rust.

If you follow these tips, you can keep your stroller in optimal condition, keeping it functional and looking good for years to come. Remember: a little maintenance will go a long way!
