Want to comment on the following anecdote from Rick ?

Doesn't a lead keep the dog safe?

Yesterday me and the dog had a excellent 4hr dash up Helvellyn, but we started the day on a downer.

On leaving the car park at Wythburn we came across a poster asking had anyone seen this lovely collie lost on the 10th of Sept around 2:00pm around Striding Edge.

Well this is were the whole thing about dogs on leads should start.

If you love your dog so much you go to this much trouble to find it .I think it should be on a lead to start with people should keep control of there dogs on high fells, not only for the safety of sheep and wild life.

Yesterday I walked on Helvellyn and some pratt was throwing stones for his poodle. Later we caught up to this idiot and he was about 300ft down from the path trying to get his ball of fluff back up to the rest of his 15 mates.

I walk a German Shepherd on a regular basis in the lakes, or depending on the risk involved I take a Schnauzer. Either way I first walk the route I want to take so I know which dog to take if any.

I always keep my dog on a lead not just for the dogs safety, but others safety to. If I fall trying to rescue my dog, I put mountain rescue at risk trying to rescue me.

Thanks for letting me winge, say hello to me and the German Shepherd any time you see me, neither of us bite [much].

Yours
