The unusual sight of hundreds of dogs turning small circles at the same time has resulted in Burns Pet Nutrition officially laying claim to the world record for the largest dog obedience lesson.
The new record for the World’s Largest Dog Obedience Lesson was set at Pembrey Country Park as part of Burns Pet Nutrition’s Dogs’ Day Out event this autumn.
During the half-hour class, which was led by Lynne Davies from BBC TV’s Dog Borstal, the 319 dogs were taught to respond to several new commands – including two in Welsh!
Event organiser Rowan Flindall said: “We would like to thank Simon Brazier, of Towy Vets, and Councillor Jeanette Gilasbey, the Mayor of Kidwelly, for being our official witnesses and everyone who took part for their enthusiasm despite the weather.
“It was important to us to do something which gave show visitors a lasting sense of achievement as well as raising the profile of this wonderful area.”
