Honestly, i would never fly my dog in cargo, and especially not for one week. If you can't drive (don't know where you are travelling from), I would find someone to take care of your dog for the week. Plus, many airlines won't fly dogs in cargo in the summer - it gets way too hot. It's noisy, dark, scary. I wouldn't put my dog through it.
Dogs do great on road trips if you can drive, and she would be absolutely fine staying at your family's with you. As long as you are there, she'll be fine.
