Titlis. Engelberg region with dogs?

In all the years I've lived here, I've never been to Titlis, or the Engelberg region.

So, our visitors want to do a Titlis trip - but I'll need to bring the mutts along.

The ancient one's dodgy ticker means he cannot go up that high, and there is always the worry that the barky one might annoy other Gondelbahn passengers - so I'm looking for alternative ways to pass the time with my misfits while the family head up to the top.

Are the mountain flower trails to Trubsee and Gershnialp fairly easy/flat hiking? (Ancient mutt will be traveling in a backpack much of the time, but he likes to get out and wander a bit.) And, how crowded do those areas tend to be on weekends? (Barky mutt is best on roads less traveled.)

Any other suggestions for easy hikes, less crowded trails in the area?

My husband wants to take the well-behaved mutt up to the top with him. I can't seem to find any info on whether dogs are allowed on the Rotair or not, having a bad Google day I guess. Anyone know? And, does one realy feel the Gondelbahn rotate? (I have no idea how the Hooligan might react to that.) So - good idea to take a dog up to the top, or would she have more fun on the trails with me and the misfits?


Any insights much appreciated.

Re: Titlis. Engelberg region with dogs?

To walk from Engleberg to the flower walk is quite steep but there is a little old gondola that takes you up after a not so long walk. Once you get to the flower walk it is fairly flat & easy going. Unless your dog is tiny I think the old gondola would be the best option, it is round the side of the mountain so tends to be quite quiet with few passengers.
