Get the Dog—We’re Going to Pinetop!

The Pinetop-Lakeside Chamber of Commerce and the town of Pinetop-Lakeside have officially deemed Pinetop-Lakeside a fireworks-free, pet-friendly zone!

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.

Held at p.l.a.c.&s, there will be a 5K Mutt Strutt/Walk, a Pooch Parade & Costume 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 furry contestants will require a wristband for contest entry. the Mutt Strutt/Walk registration is from 8 AM to 9 AM, and the walk starts at 9:30 AM proceeding through the national forest.

In addition to a day full of activities and music by Bitter Sweet, we will have the Water Bowl Hydration Station for people and pets (sponsored by Open Spaces Yoga Center), food and beverages for the owners, a “Flealess” Market (bring your wares and set up shop), and the VIP Pet Promenade for pet-specific vendors. Call (928) 367-4290 for information on the VIP Pet Promenade or Flealess Market or download the vendor application.

After a full day of flying-fur fun, head on over to Mountain Meadow Complex with your two- and four-legged kids for a movie in the park and enjoy Homeward Bound, presented by the town of Pinetop-Lakeside.

Phoenix Area Disc Dogs will provide entertainment and workshops, Open Spaces Yoga Center will hold a You & the Pup Yoga Class, and Pet Allies is bring adoptable pets looking for their new furr-ever home and providing free nail trimmings and $15 microchipping.

Please… all pets must be crated or on a leash—even if you are carrying your furry family member.
