This may sound like a stupid question but I have two dogs. My dogs are like family to me. Even when I leave for the weekend they get very depressed. Are there any PC locations that allow you to bring pets?

It isn't a stupid question. I have 2 dogs that are my "babies!" There are no locations that I am aware of where you can bring your pets. Nor, would I recommend it being that most PC areas are not very pet friendly. Many places are rife w/diseases, poor medical options (people & pets) & attitudes towards animals that can be difficult to handle. Also, during the first 3 mos. while in training you are living w/host families, you don't have control of your time as you go between classes, learning new language, etc.

Perhaps you might consider living overseas in a place where you could bring your pets. I got my 2 dogs post PC while living overseas & have since moved to another overseas destination & took my pampered pups 1/2 way around the world w/me.
