Air-side pooch potties


When the new billion-dollar expanded terminal at San Diego International Airport opens to the public — it will have 10 new gates, $6 million of new art, a USO center, new concessions and an indoor pet-relief area that has been getting some national attention.

The airport has set aside about a 75-square-foot space and decorated it with a fake hydrant and fake turf, baggies for clean-up and a hand-washing station for pet owners.

It’s a great amenity for those traveling with their pets, but it is not the first indoor pet relief station in the country.

Here’s a list of just some of the other US airports that already offer indoor pet-relief stations:

Dulles International Airport

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport
