Some U.S. airports offer a unique service designed to reduce the typical problems passengers face as they endure busy terminals. In the Los Angeles facility it’s LAX PUP (Pets Unstressing Passengers).

The trained canines roam the waiting areas with volunteer handlers and offer friendly muzzles and wagging tails. They meet close-up with people worried about late schedules, cancellations, crying kids and all the other airport woes. When you have a future flight scheduled, check online with your airport to find out if you’ll meet a doggone new friend there to welcome you.
