Pet Relief Areas

Furry travelers at DEN now have their own private restroom on each concourse and one outside of Jeppesen Terminal.  The new indoor pet relief rooms provide service animals and furry companions with a comfortable and welcoming area to take care of business, before or after a flight.

The pet relief rooms are conveniently located post-security in the center cores of A, B and C Gates. Also, there is a pre-security outdoor pet relief area located just outside door 200 on the west side of the Jeppesen Terminal. All pet relief areas are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The indoor pet relief rooms feature artificial turf flooring, with a drainage system and an artificial rock. Because owners are asked to clean up after their animals, bags and disposal containers are provided. The rooms also include a wall-mounted sink, soap dispenser, automatic hand dryer and paper towel dispenser. To bring the outdoors in, each room features a wall mural showcasing owners and their dogs enjoying Colorado’s great outdoors. The design of the rooms allow for a sanitary environment by making cleaning easy and efficient.

The outdoor pet relief area in the Jeppesen Terminal is conveniently located before going through security and is fenced in with a bench for owners to sit while their pet takes care of business.

Advice on Traveling with Pets

  • Check with your airline for their specific requirements for pets.
  • Federal and state laws require a health certificate signed by a veterinarian for animals on a flight.
  • Dogs and cats must be at least eight weeks old to travel on an airplane.
  • Try to book a nonstop flight, and try to avoid busy holiday or weekend travel. It is best to fly your pet during times when temperatures are moderate. For instance, fly in the morning or evening during the summer months to avoid midday heat. Some airlines have restrictions if temperatures are above 85 degrees or below 45 degrees.
  • Be sure your pet’s collar and kennel have identification tags that include your name, telephone number, and flight information.
  • If the pet is flying in the cargo hold, make sure you put food and water in the kennel.
  • If you travel outside the continental United States, be aware that some places, including Hawaii, require your pet to have special vaccinations and may impose a quarantine period when you arrive at your destination. Contact the host country, or ask your airline for assistance in learning the rules that pertain to traveling with your pet outside the U.S. mainland.
