It depends what you're interesed in doing and seeing! Summer is the time when the most folks visit the park. Spring and fall are the "shoulder seasons" and are less crowded. Winter offers opportunities to visit the park in a more quiet, serene environment.

We suggest taking your time and choosing 3-4 parks to really enjoy, plus taking in some sights along the way. Your trip will lead you right through the heart of the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments, numerous state parks, scenic byways, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations. Take some time to explore some of these places, including Zion, Canyonlands and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.

For more information check out www.grandcircle.org and www.utah.com/nationalparks/grandcircle.htm. Some suggested itineraries are available at http://www.utah.com/itineraries/grand_circle.htm.

It's always a good idea to be bear aware, but it's best to check with the park before your arrival to see if they recommend bear spray. Before you head out, check out these articles:

Yellowstone's Bears

Minimizing the Dangers of a Bear Encounter

If you do decide to purchase bear spray, don't forget to recycle your canister before you head home!

You may bring your dog to Yellowstone as long as you follow park regulations and take safety issues into consideration. Pets are prohibited in the backcountry and on trails and boardwalks, must be on a leash at all times, and may never be left unattended.

Pets may accompany you in the front country areas of the park. This includes any areas within 100 feet of roads, parking areas, and campgrounds. Pets must be kept under physical control at all times—caged, crated, or on a leash not to exceed six feet in length.

Make sure you read ALL of Yellowstone's rules about pets before deciding to bring your dog to the park.

The Merced River snakes along the entrance roads, teasing the viewer with deceivingly cold, crystal-clear waters. You’ll pass by black ...

This kind of information varies from park to park.  I would suggest contacting the park you are visiting and to find out their policy.
