This past weekend, Davy Whippet and I attempted the WFDF and Guinness World Record for Distance to Canine Catch which is currently held by Mark Molnar and Cheyenne Whippet at 130 yards which was set in 1994. The dog cannot cross the line until the disc has been thrown and the spot at which the dog first touches the disc is where the mark is spotted. We are allowed a maximum of 15 attempts per day. This is important because there are many factors to take into account – how Davy is feeling, my throw, the wind and where the sun is. This record has been unbroken for 18 years for a reason – it’s not easy to break!
This catch, our longest of the 2 days and our personal best so far, was made on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at around 3:23pm MST. Davy Whippet is owned and trained by Lara Sorenson.
