The Guinness world record for the Most flying discs (Frisbees) caught and held in the mouth by a dog was set by Edward Watson's (USA) dog Rose, who can catch seven flying discs, thrown one at a time, and hold them all in her mouth at once.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Fastest 100 m on a skateboard by a dog, set by Tillman the English Bulldog, who covered a 100-m stretch of level car park in a time of 19.678 seconds during X Games XV in Los Angeles, California, USA.
"This has been a dream of mine since I started competing with Davy just over a year ago," saus McLeod.
"For me to be able to say that Davy has caught further than any other dog means a lot."
With this latest accomplishment, Davy Whippet becomes the first dog to officially catch a flying disc over 400 feet, which is impressive since Davy covered that distance in about 10 seconds before catching the disc.
In the past 9 months, the Frisbee duo has set 4 World Records, won 2 World Championships and won the Quadruped National title.
