airportNobody ever said that traveling with a service dog is easy when taking to the skies. But one aspect is a little easier thanks to a new app that’s FREE; yup free!

While a lot of airports offer places for a traveling service dog to relieve itself, they are often hard to locate especially between legs of travel and when trying to get from place to place during a lay over in an unfamiliar airport.

A lot of the guess work has been taken out of the equation with a new smart phone application called Where to Go from Working Like Dogs. Available for Androids and Smartphones this nifty application provides a comprehensive directory of animal relief areas as well as a good overview of ADA laws and aviation travel FAQ. It even offers special accessibility features for the visually or hearing impaired.
