If you have a furry friend frightened of the big bangs, get on up to Pinetop-Lakeside! Make your reservations early—it’s a popular time of year in the ponderosa pines and cabins and lodging (especially pet-friendly rooms) fill up quickly and early. For information on where to stay, click now.
Held at p.l.a.c.&s, there will be a 5K Mutt Strutt Walk/Run, a Pooch Parade & Costume Contest, an Agility Contest, a Best Pet-Trick Contest, a Pet/Owner Lookalike Contest, a Best Tail Wag Contest, and a Biggest/Smallest Dog Contest—enter one or all! Entrance to the event is free, but each contest will have a separate, nominal entry fee. Race registration is from 8 AM to 9 AM, and the race starts at 9:30 AM.
In addition to a day full of activities, we will have a Hydration Station for people and pets, food and beverages for their handlers, a “Flealess” Market (bring your wares and set up shop), and a VIP pet-specific vendor area. Call (928) 367-4290 for information on the VIP Pet Promenade or Flealess Market.
After a full day of flying fur fun, head on over to Mountain Meadow Complex and enjoy a pet-friendly movie presented by the town of Pinetop-Lakeside.
Details are still coming together, but we’re also working to bring in agility, disc dog, and K9 demonstrations as well as having adoptable pets looking for their new furr-ever home.
Please… all pets must be crated or on a leash—even if you are carrying your beloved family member.
This event is sponsored by Spider Trainers and the town of Pinetop-Lakeside, but lots of sponsorship opportunities are still available! Call the chamber at (928) 367-4290 if you have questions, or use the form on this page.
We will update this page as new details come in.
