Trailing plants

Can anyone recommend some trailing plants, perferably hardy ones which won't be poisonous to the pets.

I have two raised flower beds made of sleepers and want something which will grow down and cover the tops of the sleepers.



Aubieta, Alyssum saxatile, Iberis sempervirens, Campanula portenschlagiana, Gypsophila repens, Saponaria, Arabis, Phlox subulata.

Will that do for you to choose from? I hope it helps!
