Almost always. I also take them on short rides when I go to the coffee shop or grocery store, etc. But only weather permitting, obviously!
Ha ha Carol, I feel the exact same way! I'm the one with separation anxiety!!
Two weekends ago, I had to go to Chicago for a formal event so no dogs allowed.
Plus, I was flying and I won't take them on an airplane as "cargo" lol. So anyway,
I missed them all weekend, was heartsick. The sitter said they didn't even miss me
at all, they just fit right into her pack and her routine immediately. Oh boy!!!

I've read many things over the years about how to leave your dog behind and not invoke separation anxiety. However, I am the one who gets it - I feel naked and like half a person without a dog by my side. So have dog will travel for me lol
We have a doggy daycare provider that takes the dogs when we can't take them with us. Bailey loves to travel. We have only had Katy since Labor Day and she is still very frightened of people. This makes traveling more challenging. We never hestiated to take Bailey anywhere, but he has separation anxiety when Katy isn't with him. My husband and I have been discussing what to for a vacation that would be comfortable for both of them. Katy would do best if we could find a cabin where she would still enjoy the outdoors, but have fewer human encounters. Bailey will miss the humans, but will enjoy the adventure.
My husband and his family attend concerts on the common during the summer with Bailey. I am hoping Katy and I will be able to stay home and Bailey will continue to make his treks to the common. He loves those trips and I don't want him to miss out because Katy and I don't find them as comfortable.
I say we are are 7. We take them whenever we can even to conferences. But sometimes you just don't have a choice and the hotel isn't pet firendly so they have to stay at home :-(

Hi, Cuba here from NYC. Well, In the past 6 weeks, I took my Dads to San Juan to attend one of my Pal's pawrents wedding. Yes, I was invited and my Dads were my guests.
We also had the DPFamily annual trip to DC, so since I was the host, I took my Dads along to help me.
However, my Dad went to Boston last week to go to his nephew's graduation at Harvard and I stayed home. Sitting all day at a graduation just wasn't something I wanted to do.
So, I give my Dad's a score of 8.
I travel with my dogs just about every day! I'd say we are a 9. I'm lucky and can bring them to work with me so most days they come. They come with me so much that when they don't they still try to get out the door and look at me like, "what do you mean we're not coming?"
10 for me!
