Are you going out of town this Holiday Season? If so, what are you going to do with your dog? You can take them with you or you can have someone else take care of them while you are gone. If you take them with you, consider airline regulations and/or pet auto safety devices. If you have someone else take care of them, consider a boarding kennel, a pet sitting service, or enlist a friend to take care of them.
For the pros and cons of each of these options, visit the American Dog Blog.
