Dogs in Brentwood have beaten a world record while raising £2,500 for Sport Relief.
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.
