United Airlines Brings Christmas Cheer With Comfort Dogs

United Airlines Brings Christmas Cheer With Comfort Dogs


The holiday season brings us all so much joy, but not everyone feels the same way. Especially when it comes to traveling long distances and countless hours to be with our loved ones.

Say hello to United Paws, a program designed to deliver smiles to customers, brings trained comfort dogs to airports in Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark and Washington/Dulles.


De-stress with dogs before taking off for the holidays. Look for the #UnitedPaws dogs Dec 21-23 in select airports. https://t.co/NrDtZBL5Eu

The United Paws crews will greet customers from Dec. 21 through Dec. 23, each day between 9 a.m. and noon and between 1 and 4 p.m.

"Research shows that just petting a dog releases oxytocin, the hormone associated with bonding and affection, and also decreases levels of stress, helps us breathe easier and lowers our blood pressure. I've experienced this recently and think this is a wonderful idea for holiday travelers,” said Dr. Walter Woolf in a press release.

Also if you share a photo with your dog in a travel setting or a United Airlines logo on Instagram or Twitter you will be entered for a chance to win two roundtrip tickets.

You’re welcome and don’t forget to make sure you exchange your currency with us when you win that flight, so you can thank us in person.
