The Pinetop-Lakeside Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has unanimously voted to make this an annual event, so we’re just getting started with planning for the 2019 full day of four-legged fun!

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, the 2nd Annual 4th of July Mutt Strutt will hold a 5K Mutt Strutt/Walk and contests including a Pooch Parade & Costume Contest, an Agility Contest, a Best Pet-Trick Contest, a Pet/Owner Lookalike Contest, a Best Tail Wagging Contest, and a Biggest/Smallest Dog Contest—enter one or all!

In addition to a day full of activities, we will have a 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 a VIP pet-specific vendor area. Call (928) 367-4290 for information on the VIP Pet Promenade or Flealess Market for July 4, 2019.

Please… all pets must be crated or on a leash—even when carried.
