Heading out of town for Memorial Day? If so, you might have to hire a pet sitter or board your pet at a local kennel. This could end up being a fun vacation for your pet or it could be a stressful experience if your pet suffers from separation anxiety.
Find an appropriate crate or carrier. It should allow plenty of airflow and should be large enough for the dog to lie down, sit, stand, and turn around comfortably. The carrier goes in the back seat and should be strapped in with a seatbelt.
