Pet-friendly Areas

We know how important your pet is to you. DFW has created pet relief areas in each of the five terminals for traveling convenience.

Pets are required to be on a leash at all times when visiting DFW Airport. Additionally, if you will be traveling from DFW with your pet, please keep the appropriate pet carrier on hand. Only pets with an accompanied ticketed passenger can use the designated areas.

  • Contact between your pet(s) and Law Enforcement Canines is strictly prohibited.
