Whether it’s a long weekend, a visit to family members, or a day trip, getting away with the family is a necessary respite from the daily grind of everyday life. However, when you have four-legged family members it can become complicated. And, as much as we’d like our pets to join us for every event, vacation, or visit, it’s not always possible. In many instances, it can be unsafe or unfair to your pet to bring them along, or it may not even be allowed. This is especially true during the Holiday season.
So what can you do for your pet when you aren’t home? You may be worried about them spending too much time alone, not getting adequate exercise, or becoming destructive out of boredom. Luckily there are plenty of options for pet owners. Hiring a pet sitter, or using a trusted boarding facility, can ensure your pet is having just as much fun as you are!
This helpful guide will help you determine which option is best for you.

The adage goes that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. However, the proverb refers more to people who are stuck in their ways rather than your actual canine’s cognitive abilities. Dogs are creatures of habit who, if they are physically capable, can learn new obedience commands and skills at any age.
Teaching an older dog new tricks can help reestablish or establish new boundaries, adjust your dog to new family dynamics, prepare them for travel, and refresh obedience commands to promote proper behavior. All it requires is training, patience, time, and effort.

You’ve crunched the numbers, got the blessing of your dog (or reached a tentative agreement with your cat), found the perfect candidate at your local shelter, or decided on a reputable breeder, and now it’s official. You’re ready to introduce a new four-legged family member into your home.
Bringing a new dog into your home is a big deal! But, before you get too excited imagining the prospect of your new pup becoming best friends with the dog you already have at home or cuddling up and sharing naps with your cat, you’ll have to consider the best way to introduce them to your home.
