This is simply amazing! On the heels of one dog breaking the Guinness World Record for dock-diving comes news of another dog breaking another Guinness World Record.

Feather, a female greyhound now holds a Guinness World Record for hurdling herself over an impressive distance of 6 feet, 3.5 inches (75.5 inches which is the equivalent of 191.7cm).

The dog who was rescued by professional dog trainer, Samantha Valle began training right away.

“Once she [Feather] knew that going over the hurdle what I wanted, she was like ‘oh,ok’. And by the time I got to 70 inches, it was just like nothing for her. The world record is now 75.5 inches, she just amazes me every single day.”

Samantha also trains Geronimo, a border collie-kelpie mix. Geronimo now holds a Guinness World Record and this is for having the most double-dutch most skips made by a dog in one minute!  Geronimo is blazing trails with 128 skips.

“Her [Geronimo’s] name was actually Cricket when I got her. Little black and white, tan-grey puppy she was so cute. On the way home on the drive from the pound, she tried to jump out of the window and that’s how she got her name Geronimo.”

Samantha has been training dogs since the age of 15 and has rescued quite a number of our canine friends over the years. She works with Feather and Geronimo very often. With Geronimo it took six weeks to master the double-dutch technique. To increase her jumping stamina Feather trains three times a week. Together they are both a pair of canine stars who have made it into the Guinness World Records for 2019.

 For Samantha the key to successful dog coaching comes from not comparing dogs to each other but in responding to each animal’s needs while also being patient and consistent.
