WATCH: Skateboarding bulldog sets world record
Video from the Guinness World Records
An English Bulldog named Otto has set the world record for skateboarding through the longest human tunnel, Guinness World Records announced on Thursday.
The amazing feat was done in Lima, Peru, last Sunday. The three-year-old dog had to skate through the legs of 30 people lined up with their feet apart.
The event was witnessed by Guinness World Records adjudicator Sarah Cusson who then presented the canine with an official certificate once the record was verified and confirmed.
Otto’s owners Luciana Viale and Robert Rickards were inspired to get a bulldog after they saw the videos of Tillman, the former fastest dog on a skateboard.
Viale thought of the idea of challenging the human tunnel record when Otto was skateboarding towards her really fast and she had to open her legs for him to go through without hitting her.
Skateboarding is not Otto’s only impressive talent—the bulldog is also said to be able to surf and skimboard.
