What to Expect from Phoenix Sky Harbor Pet Relief Stations
The Phoenix Airport pet policies are among the most pet-friendly in the nation. If you travel through this facility, you won’t have any trouble locating an indoor or outdoor, pre- or post-security pet relief area for your furry friend. The outdoor areas, though small, are very convenient and in relatively secluded sections of sidewalks/curbs. They are outfitted with drinking water for the dogs and mitts for easy clean-up.
The indoor, post-security PHX pet relief stations are small areas of artificial grass and garnished with fake fire hydrants. Many of these do not have enclosed rooms, so be aware that your dog may be overwhelmed by the foot traffic and noise of busy terminals.
Even if your dog is spooked by loud noises and lots of people, finding a secluded Sky Harbor pet relief station in this airport is not difficult.
