The Guinness World Records world record for the longest dog lead was made by Pedigree, a dog food company, at their exhibition stand at the Crufts dog show in Birmingham, West Midlands, UK, between 10 and 13 March 2005, and when completed the leather lead measured 686 m (2,250 ft) in length.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest dog obedience lesson; it involved 390 dogs and was achieved by Felcan (Spain) at Mossen Sorribes Park in Rocafort, Valencia, Spain, on 22 April 2012.
Jonah Lonero, survey crew chief with Spalding DeDecker in Detroit, used infrared light equipment to get precise measurements. He
confirmed the length of a 2,2620-foot, 8-inch dog leash at the Michigan Humane Society in Detroit.
