Paws-itively marvellous!

Organisers of a pet event in Ohio, in the US, have broken a Guinness World Record for the largest dog photo-shoot.

The PAWSitively Pinecrest event, held in August at Pinecrest’s Central Park, featured 368 dogs being photographed during the five-hour carnival to nearly treble the previous record of 123 that was set in the Philippines in 2017.

Towards the end of the event, all dogs in attendance and their owners posed for a group photo, taken by a rooftop photographer and a drone in the sky.

Guinness adjudicator Brittany Dunn said the number was based on the individual dog photos taken during the event and not the group shot.

Lisa Pocci, vice president of marketing for Pinecrest developer Fairmount Properties, told the Cleveland.com: “We do a lot of events at Pinecrest and one common thing we noticed, no matter what we do, is that people like to bring their dogs.

“So we decided, why not do an event that’s all about dogs and, while we’re at it, do something really grand and special and try to break this world record for the largest dog photoshoot?”
