You can get adders up here in South Cumbria too. I was also aware of them in Northumberland.

Not on the C2C but whilst doing the Offa's Dyke Path. We met aguy on the second day and ended up walking most of the rest of theway with him and his Border Collie. When we met up with him in the morning near Trevor his dog was limping badly from a perforated pad. He bandaged it best he could but the dog was only using one of its hind legs. After several miles it sat down exhausted and refused to budge. He left us and headed off to Llangollen to find a vet. He caught up with us a couple of days later, his dog now fully recovered after an antibiotic shot and painkillers. maybe adding a few doggy items to your first aid kit would be agood idea?

Agreed with the First Aid Kit suggestion. I always take a doggy boot as well. The main thing though is to ensure that your dog is really used to the type of walking you are requiring it to do. I have been on may LDPs with my dogs and have never had any problems, but then we trained for them together. They have also done the Lyke Wake walk with me too. I felt shattered at the end, especially after sitting down waiting for my B&B lift, whereas my dogs were still keen to go.

Just a thought. If you did the walk with a team of huskies, so when you got tired they could pull you ..... would that count?
