Dogs and their owners narrowly missed breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous dog “stay”.

Thousands of pets took part in the event on Friday (August 9), organised as part of the Kennel Club’s international agility festival at Rockingham Castle.

The current record is 627 and 601 dogs obeyed the command and stayed put for two minutes.

Now in its ninth year, the international agility festival, supported by CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds, will be on at the castle until Sunday (August 11).

With more international entries than ever before, this year’s event will include an impressive array of talented competition from all over the world.

Spectators can look forward to seeing around 2,500 dogs jumping, weaving and racing their way through a variety of courses in one of the 16 agility rings that will be set up for the weekend.
