Having friends and family over? Including your 4 legged friend is great, but if your pet is not one who goes with the flow, be sure to provide them with a nice quiet place away from the crowds to relax and feel secure. If your dog is a party animal and wants to be in the midst of the party – great!! … Just be sure that someone keeps an eye on them and no escape routes like doors or gates are accidentally left open. Err on the side of caution.
