Will my boy enjoy a trip?
Do you guys have an opinion as to whether my yorkie would rather come with us on a car trip and stay in hotels or stay home with a house sitter. i.e. which is more important, familiar people or familiar surroundings?

That is up to how comfortable you feel leaving your furbaby at home, It does lesson on where you can take them. especially nono on restraunts. Have they had car rides do they like it ? I would just take everything into concideration and then decide. I know for myself I don't know if I could leave Andy. But then again he has car ride anxiety even short trips

Welcome to YorkieTalk. I agree with Laci32, depends on the dog and your plans for the trip. If your dog is going to spend time alone in the hotel room, take into consideration that even pet-friendly hotels will call you if the dog barks and may ask you to check out. Also, consider safety leaving the dog alone. Crate or put in an xpen in case hotel staff open the door to your room. You don't want your pup running out the door. Put tags on your pup. Have info on local ER vets in case of emergency. Check the room carefully for dangers like electrical cords or things left behind by other guests on the floor and under the beds, like an earring (choking hazard) or medication (toxic).
If you leave at home with a sitter, make sure it is someone you trust completely to understand your dog's needs.
Kristin, Max and Teddy

When we are gone for a while on a trip, like a Cruise ship, Over seas, etx, the Yorkie is watcxhed by a relative and the big guy goes to his Training Facility. Now a road trip, we have driven back and forth to AZ many times, and they enjoyed it.

It depends on the dog, and the kind of trip. I like to take Jackson w/ me on a lot of our trips but most of our trips are dog friendly and I don't have to leave him in the room/hotel/RV for more than 2hrs. He highly enjoys traveling and seeing new sights, etc, so he's a great traveler. But if he were to be spending most of his time in a hotel room, I think I'd feel more comfortable leaving him at home.
