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.
Rachael Grylls has been crowned Britain's Most Talented Pet twice and is now showing off her athletic abilities, co-ordination skills and outstanding discipline by gaining a world record, The Okehampton Times reports.
'We actually did 63 skips in total but one skip was taken off for each time we stopped,' explained Rachael, who was shouting words of encouragement throughout the gruelling 60 seconds.
'The original amount of skips to beat was 45 but recently a Japanese man and his dog raised the record to 50, so the pressure was really on. But we did it!'
