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/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 furry contestants will require a wristband for contest entry. 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 the Water Bowl Hydration Station for people and pets, food and beverages for their handlers, 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 for a movie in the park and enjoy Homeward Bound, 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 furry family member.

This event is sponsored by Aspen Ridge Pet Hospital, Bev Best HomeSmart Professionals Elite Group, 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 below.

We will update this page as new details come in.

A huge thank you to these sponsors for their support of our furry friends
