The holidays are coming and that means lots of trips to visit family and friends. According to a recent Kurgo Survey of dog owners, 36% of people travel to a destination other than their home for Thanksgiving and 43% travel at Christmas time. Over 80% of dog owners will bring their pup along on these trips, because, of course, their dog is part of the family too!
