Passenger Info: Dog Parks

Dog Parks & Pet Relief Areas

The Reno-Tahoe International Airport is proud to offer a special kind of customer service feature that caters to man’s (and woman's) best friend. We are proud to have not one, but three dog parks to serve our four-legged passengers.

Since 2004, Gate K-9 Bark Park has provided a convenient place where passengers traveling with their pets can give their dogs a restroom and water break. The Bark Parks are fully fenced, with ADA accessibility, running water, mutt mitts to clean up after dogs, a fire hydrant and a canopy for inclement weather.

The original Gate K-9 Bark Park is located north of Baggage Claim and has more than 1,000 sq. ft. of exercise space for your four-legged pal. Exit Door D by ground transportation and follow the sidewalk paw prints to the Bark Park. In 2012, a second dog park opened for passengers flying out of Reno-Tahoe International with their pet. It is located south of the terminal building, just outside of the Southwest Airlines Ticket Counter and boasts another nearly 700 sq. ft. of space.

In 2017, Reno-Tahoe International Airport opened an indoor pet relief area, conveniently located post-security on the second floor of the terminal building, across from McDonald's. This indoor pet relief area allows passengers traveling with animals a place within walking distance from the airline gates where pets can relieve themself before a flight. As it is fully enclosed, this area is also suitable for those traveling with cats.

Reno-Tahoe International welcomes the four-legged, furry passengers who visit the airport and we’re sure Gate K-9 will help keep those tails a waggin’.
