CMH kindly provides a map of its arrivals level, showing the location of the airport’s pet relief area, but it’s a bit hard to follow. Here’s what you do: Exit the baggage claim level through the doors across from Carousel 2, then turn left and walk to the end of the sidewalk. The pet relief area is a small, fenced enclosure lined in crushed stone. Poop bags and a trash can are provided, but the area was very dirty when we visited. A far better choice is to cross the airport road to an area whose pillars bear the signs “Pre-arranged vehicles.” Right next to them is a big patch of grass — much cleaner and more pleasant than the official relief area, but you’ll need to carry your own poop bags.
