When I travel, I see other travelers with dogs. Some are in carriers. Some on leashes. Some are definitely service dogs. Others are pets.
I’ve often wondered what you do if you have a dog in an airport terminal.
I found several airports with places for your furry pooch. There are probably more. Do you have any favorites?
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
The Pet Patch is located east of Terminal 2. The Pet Paw Pad can be found in Terminal 3, outside on the West End. The Bone Yard can be found on the west side of Terminal 4, near baggage claim.
Nearby PHX Sky train stations, pet relief areas are also available. The East Economy Park & Bark is near the East Economy parking garages and The Park ‘n Play is on the northwest corner of the 44th Street PHX Sky Train station.
San Diego International Airport
Seven different pet relief stations are available. You’ll find artificial turf and waste bags. These pet relief stations can be found throughout the terminals outside of the airport, as well as indoor at Terminal 2 West.
Philadelphia International Airport
At Philadelphia International Airport, there are seven Service Animal Relief Areas, called Pet Ports. These relief areas have a mulch surface, a bench, biodegradable pet waste bags, and a garbage can. All stations are available for both service animals and pets.
Boston Logan International Airport
In Boston, the relief areas are no-frills, but plentiful. These rest areas are located on the arrivals level curb outside every terminal. There is also a pet-relief area located in Terminal E, after security, and near Gate E7.
Denver International Airport
Denver International Airport has spots for pets with artificial turf, bags, and a sink on each concourse as well as right outside Jeppesen Terminal. After security, these are located in the center cores of A, B and C Gates. A pre-security pet restroom area is located just outside door 200 on the west side of the Jeppesen Terminal.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
Indoor Service Animal Relief Areas here are available throughout the airport and can be used by service animals and other traveling pets. They can be found in every concourse. This airport also has a dog park, located in the Ground Transportation area on Domestic Terminal South. This fully fenced-in park offers biodegradable bags along with benches.
Reno-Tahoe International Airport
This airport has three dog parks available. Gate K-9 Bark Parks are fenced, ADA accessible, and have running water, mutt mitts for cleanup, and a canopied area for when the weather isn’t so great. Indoors, an area is available on the second floor of the terminal building.
