A dog-training club is celebrating its second world record, achieved this afternoon at the Northumberland County Show.
Tilly, a Jack Russell-Poodle cross and a member of the North Northumberland Dog Training Club, set the milestone for a dog weaving in and out of the most consecutive pairs of legs.
Moments before the bid was about to start at the huge annual event at Bywell near Stocksfield, the team ran around showgoers asking for volunteers as they needed more than 200 pairs of legs to secure the record.
Luckily, 211 people lined up for the attempt and after a few tries, Tilly managed to run though all the legs successfully.
Tilly’s owner Jacqueline Adamson jumped up with elation and said she was ‘over the moon’ with the result.
Jacqui Hall, chairman of the club, said: “We’ve done a lot of work over the last few months and had everything crossed but it was a big ask, a massive ask for some of these dogs.”
“We’ve been training on people they know, these were largely all strangers to them and part of me thought, obviously I wanted the world record but I think it is a big ask.”
A full report of the Northumberland County Show will be in this Thursday’s Gazette.
