As flying with animals becomes popular so does the need for a pet relief area in airports. Most major Canadian airports are trying to accommodate traveling pets, but unfortunately, most potty areas are located before clearing security. If you are on a layover, you will need to leave the post customs area and again clear customs after using the pet relief area.
