The Essex Dog Display Team succeeded in getting a dog to walk over 163 people’s backs while they stood, bent over, in a line, at their training ground on March 2.

They beat their previous record of 147 and are now awaiting confirmation by Guinness.

Chief dog trainer, Roy Dyer, said: “It was great, there was a lovely atmosphere and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed it too.

“For the dogs it is a very comfortable position to be to be standing on top of people. The dogs find this a very superior place to be and have great fun.

“They almost think: ‘I’m wiping my feet on these people’.”

Roy also said that the BBC filmed the event and it may appear on Sport Relief towards the end of the month.
