Detroit Airport Installs Guide Dog Relief Airport Inside Security


One of the challenges of flying with a service animal is having access to relief areas when you're at the airport. I have experienced a handful of times when I had a connecting flight to get to, but I didn't have time to relieve my dog because the relieving area was outside of the airport. According to Gizmodo, a partnership between Delta Airlines and the Detroit Airport has led to the creation of an indoor relieving area inside the terminal. Dogs will have the choice of both artificial turf or real grass and when your pup is finished relieving, you hit a button which turns on sprinklers to wash down the waste. As a service animal user, I hope this is a trend that we see in more airports.
