I'm sure your dog is happy to see the kids this vacation week. Dogs generally love attention and play. Cats, maybe not so much. Of course, you'll want to reward your pet for desired behavior, so you can also explore creating your own doggie treats.
Here are some items to use with your pets, and hopefully, all involved will enjoy the experience!
