At Wilde East Towne Honda, we treat our customers like family, including pets. We have water bowls and treats available for use while at our dealership. We also have a new Pet Waste Station area located near the North side of our building. Whether you are here to purchase a vehicle, get a service done or simply to visit, your pet is welcome to be with you in our dealership. While we are pet friendly, we do take safety as a priority. It is very important to ask for permission to touch any animal before you reach your hand out to pet. For owners, sometimes it’s best to leave your furry friend at home when in areas with a large group of people. Please use your best judgement so everyone, including your pet, can be safe and happy.
When visiting a new place, please be mindful of others. We found a few etiquette tips to keep in mind from meridian.splashanddashfordogs.com when visiting stores and unknown areas.
- Tip 1: Keep your dog on a short leash. This keeps your dog under control and out of harms way.
- Tip 2: Don’t assume everyone wants to play with your dog. There may be a health reason someone doesn’t want to be around your dog or even dog lovers may be weary of other dogs they don’t know the temperament of.
- Tip 3: Give your dog time to adjust to the new surrounding. Sometimes new places can be scary.
- Tip 4: Try not to allow others to pet your dog unless they ask permission first.
We also found a great website, www.cesarsway.com, that can give you tips on how to acclimate your dog to new surroundings. Once trained, you can enjoy bringing your pet to multiple locations (please check locations first) as you run errands.
