Ranger-led program schedules are available online. You can find the fall schedule here. The winter schedule is not available yet, but you can view last year's schedule as an example.

If you have more questions, we suggest contacting Yellowstone National Park.

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.

That is a question that has more answers than the Internet can provide : )

Our site's Yellowstone Pages has a "things to do" section that is fairly consistent with most people's top interests.  You can also visit the West Yellowstone Chamber site for more insights.  Definitely hit the IMAX theater in West on your way into the park (if you head in that direction!)

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:

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.

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