Dogs on walks

Well-behaved dogs are accepted on our walks, but before deciding to bring yours along please consider the following:
  While on the walk the dog is entirely your responsibility and should not be allowed to impact on the enjoyment of other group members in any way
  The walk leader accepts no responsibility for the suitability/ safety of the route for dogs
  There may be another member who has also brought their dog on the walk
  Your dog should be capable of walking 8-10 miles at the pace adopted by the group
  Walking in the countryside means we often encounter livestock & also cross busy roads
  Many pubs and cafes where we may stop for lunch/drinks do not allow dogs inside.
  If there any problems, the walk leader has the right to ask you and your dog to leave
  As a matter of courtesy, if you do decide to bring your dog, then please let the group leader know in advance of the walk
