The Guinness Book of World Records is full of set and broken records, some amazing, some weird, and others just plain out of this world. Setting the newest record are 13 dogs jumping rope at the same time, making for not only an impressive trick to accomplish, but providing a humerous anecdote to the world of pet news! The record set? The most dogs skipping on the same rope.
As most inventions and discoveries are made, this record setting dog trick happened purely by accident. The dog handler at Uchida Geinousha’s ‘Super Wan Wan Circus’ in Japan said, “One day Mayonnaise, an incredibly curious poodle, started to try and skip with us. She clearly really enjoyed it and we decided to get the other dogs involved. It’s become part of their playtime.”
What started as a routine jump rope session for humans turned into a fun and rewarding event for these 13 dogs, who just seemed to have a knack for jumping rope!
“We are very honored to be Guinness World Record holders (for the most dogs skipping on a rope), and we want to try harder and break even more records with the dogs. “The way we teach skipping is as a part of the dog’s playtime, so they definitely see it as something fun. Dogs love skipping. If they didn’t want to do it, they simply wouldn’t,” said Uchida Geinousha.
Man’s best friend continues to find ways to amuse and entertain humans, and these 13 dogs are no exception! We look forward to seeing what other records they will break!
