Got an answer to the following Walking/Hiking question?

Striding Edge and Dogs.....

Hi,

I`m sure many people are sick of hearing questions about dogs, but walking with my dog is a large part of the enjoyment both me and the girlfriend get from walking. I`m trying to find out how safe and advisable it is to do Striding Edge with a dog, as we are planning on doing Hevellyn in May.

We are both fairly new to walking, and this is our first walking trip out of the Peak District, where we live. We have done Kinder Scout many times in all weather conditions, aswell as the smaller walks like Win Hill etc etc. The dog has been fine on all of these.

I am aware that Striding Edge is a very narrow knife edge though, and don`t want to put the dog, ourselves or anyone else in danger. He is a well behaved dog, and will happily stick to the paths on command. We are also responsible owners, and have him on the lead when needed. From other peoples experience of this walk, would it be suitable for the dog? Do you see other dogs doing Striding Edge?

Thanks, any advice is appreciated.
