TSA usually asks for the dog to walk "naked" through the X-ray scanner, without you. So take off the dog's equipment, put it through the scanner machine with your luggage, put the dog in a sit-stay, you walk through, get cleared, dog walks through. They may pat down the dog.
There may be a detection K9 in the area. Some I've seen have been pretty out of control (bouncing around and excited) but most are very calm. But either way, your dog needs to know a solid and reliable sit-stay, come, heel, with or without any equipment.
I used to fly a lot. Happy I rarely have to, now.
