Back in October, Davy Whippet and I attempted to break the WFDF World Record for Canine MTA and the Guinness World Record for Flying Disc – Time Aloft, dog. Although the names are slightly different, they are the same record.
On Sunday, October 12, we successfully broke the previous record with a throw and catch of 10.56 seconds. That time was measured from the point I released the disc to when Davy caught it. The previous record was 10.14 seconds.
We received official notice from WFDF that our record was approved less than a week after we broke the record. However, Guinness approval was just received last week.
This becomes my 6th Guinness World Record and Davy’s 2nd GWR. You can watch the video of our record below.
Davy is a pretty special dog and I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to not only compete with him but also spend time with him. He’s my best friend and the best athlete I’ve ever competed with. He works for me because he wants to – not because I make him.
If you have a dog and would like to get into throwing frisbees to them, let me know and I can help you get started. If you would like to have Davy and I in for a meet & greet or to make an appearance at an upcoming event, let me know and we can work out the details.
I will let you know that I’m currently working on a children’s bullying book with Davy as the main character. I have an author, a teacher adviser and an illustrator. We are going to be launching this project through Kickstarter crowd funding so I will let you know when that is happening as we will be needing your help to share the word with your friends and family.
