Traveling Safely With Animals

Many of our customers at Island Honda in Kahului, HI travel with their animals. Sometimes, they do this so much that they buy a vehicle specifically with their pets in mind. Whether you plan on driving your pet occasionally or frequently, there are a few things to keep in mind.

It's important that you can stay focused on driving rather than on your pet. For this reason, keep any animals in the back seat. If needed, you may need to use a harness. Don't worry, there are many versions that are comfortable and allow animals to move around freely while also keeping them in the back seat. This positioning also keeps pets away from airbags, which could potentially injure them when deployed.

Pets need to take breaks just like people do. If you have an active pet, bring along a few toys to throw around during your stops. Having food and water are also key for comfort.
