'Tis the season to travel! The holidays are full of visits to family and friends. While you're planning your vacation, don't forget an important member of your family: your dog. Some pet owners can take their dogs with them on long trips, but for many people, this simply isn't an option. Traveling can be stressful for dogs and cost-prohibitory for some pet owners. There are destinations where Fido can't tag along—whether it's because Grandma's allergic to pet dander or because you'll be hitting the slopes all day. Whatever your reason for leaving your furry friend home, you'll want to be sure he or she is comfortable, safe, and getting plenty of love. Do you have a pet lodge you trust to take care of your pet over the holidays? Don’t wait until the last minute to choose a place for your dog to stay; if you’re not careful, the best places will be booked solid for the final months of the year. Here are some tips to help you choose the right pet lodging facility.
