There’s nothing on the airport’s web site about a pet relief area, and the person staffing the information desk told me that there isn’t an official pet relief area at ALB. There are small lawns just outside the terminal building, however, and she told me how to find them.… Read the rest
According to the airport’s website, BWI’s pet relief area “can be found at the end of Concourse E near the International Terminal, adjacent to the light rail station.” Happily, the light rail station is easy to find, because there is literally no signage for the pet relief area until you reach the exit door.… Read the rest
Last week I posted half of reader Mia’s report from a recent trip (“Flying with an in-cabin dog on a Delta CRJ-200“). Here’s the other half, describing the results of her searches for pet relief areas at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and the Charleston International Airport (CHS).… Read the rest
My friend Jenny, whenever she sets off on a trip, kindly asks whether I have the info I need about the pet relief area for the airport she’ll be visiting — and this time, she was visiting Austin, TX. After drying my tears of gratitude, I told her that I had the information the airport provides on its site (“The dog walk is located outside the lower level, to the far, east end of the terminal past column numbered 6”).… Read the rest
Not many airport pet relief areas are so silly that they make me laugh out loud when I find them — the pet relief area at Dallas (Terminal D) was one, and now Nashville is on the list.

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.… Read the rest
A few days ago, I posted a report sent to me by reader Amanda about her trip from L.A. to the Bahamas with her husband and their Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix, and promised to post separately her description of the two pet relief areas she visited at the airport in Miami.… Read the rest
The last time I flew in to San Francisco on Virgin America, the airline was based in SFO’s International Terminal, so I reported on how to find the pet relief area located between the International Terminal and Terminal 1. Since then, Virgin America has shifted operations to Terminal 2 (or “T2”), so I had a whole new pet relief area to look for.… Read the rest
This has been an outstanding couple of weeks for dog travel links. Leading the pack is the Take Paws team, which wrote a bunch of great posts, but I want to highlight their post about U.S. national parks (so often not terribly dog-friendly) and national forests (overlooked, but beautiful and more welcoming to dogs) and their post about visiting several dog-friendly Russian River wineries.… Read the rest
Though we pass through Atlanta fairly frequently (and who doesn’t?), I’ve never had a long enough layover to check out the pet relief areas, so I was very grateful to get reports and pictures from two Dog Jaunt readers.
According to the airport’s web site, ATL has two pet relief areas: “[A] 1,000-square-foot dog park is located in the Ground Transportation area on Terminal South outside of doors W1 and W2.… Read the rest
