VIDEO: New world record set at Angus show as hundreds of dogs wear bandanas

A wacky world record was set in Angus yesterday as hundreds of dogs wore bandanas at a canine show at Glamis Castle.

Organisers of the Dogs’ Day Out sought to set tails wagging by smashing the previous record of 764 dogs in bandanas by RSPCA Australia in 2015.

Pooches of all shapes and sizes came together to set the new record of 860 dogs wearing bandanas against the backdrop of the Angus castle.

It is the second weekend in a row that a new world record has been set in Angus. Last weekend Ryan Ramsay and Lexi Ligeti set a record for the greatest three-legged distance covered in 24 hours in an Arbroath car park.

Rosella Pollard from Burns Pet Nutrition, which hosted yesterday’s event, said: “We had a total of 860 dogs altogether which is amazing – it’s a lot more than we were expecting.

“People were really enthusiastic about trying to break the record – there was every breed you could imagine, everything from a huskie, to bichon frise to an Old English sheepdog.

“People registered online and got their bandana in the post but people were also able to register on the day.

“Afterwards all the people who took part get a commemorative sticker, a certificate and they can keep the bandana of course.”

There weren’t any representatives from the Guinness World Records at the event.

Instead video and photographic evidence will be sent to the official record adjudicators to confirm the new record.

“I don’t think we have anything to worry about in terms of setting the record as we were almost 100 over the previous record,” Rosella added.

“It’s been so successful we might look to see if there’s another record we can set in future years.”

The world record attempt followed a busy programme of events which included a parade of pedigree dog breeds and displays for Search & Rescue Dog Association Scotland and the Ore Country Terriers.

There were also a variety of competitions judged by Lynne Davies from BBC television programme Dog Borstal.

These included prizes for the best dressed dog in tartan, golden oldies, perfect pups, female and male dogs and the prize for a bit of ruff – open to all scruffy dogs. A best in show prize was also awarded.

 

Two records down and one to go

The record for most dogs wearing a bandana is the second of three world record attempts taking place in Angus this summer.

Last weekend Ryan Ramsay and Lexi Ligeti set a new record for distance covered three-legged in 24 hours with a distance of 116 kilometres.

On August 12 a third unusual world record could fall when Kirriemuir Relay for Life plan to gather the greatest number of Peter Pans ever seen together.

The current record was set in Seffner, Florida, on October 30 2015 when 289 people from the furniture company Rooms to Go pulled on their green tights in a successful charity attempt.
