Deb, my beloved college roommate and a loyal Dog Jaunt reader, arrived at the Richmond International Airport recently and sent the following information about the pet relief area there: “It’s located right outside the terminal, in front of the parking garage. All grass, with benches and a poop bag dispenser, trash receptacle. Bordered by walls and fencing. Very sunny, no shade, but looked really clean and well-tended.”
I asked her to describe how a traveler with a dog would find it, arriving at a concourse, and here’s what she said: “It couldn’t be easier. The airport is tiny, so you just exit the main doors on the ground floor near the rental car counters.”
“I think there was a sign inside the terminal, up high near the main doors to the outside, but the sign in the photo was mounted on the brick wall of a staircase right outside the main doors. You couldn’t miss either of them. You have to cross the street to get to the pet relief area, but you can actually see it as you exit the doors, so you don’t need to go hunting for it.”
Thanks, darling Deb! I’ve added this post to Dog Jaunt’s ongoing series of reviews of airport pet relief areas. To see others, visit Dog Jaunt’s handy guide to airport pet relief areas.
