Jindalee Woman Nabs Guinness World Record For The Most Dogs Walked

The Guinness world record for the most dogs walked has recently been broken by a Jindalee resident.

Professional dog trainer Maria Harman was able to grab the record by taking 36 dogs for a 1-kilometre walk, all at the same time.

Ms Harman’s plan was to originally walk 40 dogs. However, that didn’t go as planned. One dog didn’t like the grass, whilst the other one got tangled, and the others got stressed. This put her down to 36 and she was victorious.

She took 36 dogs in two straight lines down Wilson Creek Reserve making her the one deserving of this year’s Guinness world record.

Being in the pet industry, Ms Harman focuses on canine behaviour. It is also to her advantage that she knows the dogs very well as she had trained most of them.

In 2016, a man in Los Angeles attempted to snag the same world record by walking 45 dogs. Bob Morris, a professional dog walker who often walk four dogs and more at the same time, attempted to break the Guinness record that same year. However, things took a nasty turn when he overestimated himself and didn’t foresee the problems that occured.
