Athletic dog and owner set jump roping world record
SHIZUOKA, Japan, Jan. 6 (UPI) — A Japanese dog with several sports achievements set a new world record for most jump rope skips in a minute with his owner.
Purin, the 11-year-old beagle and her owner Makoto Kumagai completed 58 successful jumps together claiming the Guinness World Record for most skips by a dog and a person in one minute – single rope.
The pair previously set the record at 51 in May 2016, but decided to set the bar even higher after several months of practice.
Purin holds two other athletic records including most balls caught by a dog with its paws in one minute and fastest 10 meters traveled on a ball by a dog.
