This is way more impressive than rolling over! A poodle named Sailor has set a new record for the Fastest 10 Meters on a Walking Globe by a Dog, the Guinness World Records announced on Thursday, June 2.
The pooch, who is about 3 years old, completed the feat in just 33.22 seconds. The previous record was 35 seconds.
Guinness World Records was on hand to capture Sailor’s attempt at a new record on video. In the footage, the talented dog effortlessly jumps onto a large red ball and proceeds to walk on the globe steadily in a nearly straight line.
And that’s not all that Sailor can do! As the video shows, the pooch can also clear multiple bars in one leap, jump rope, jump through a small hoop and more. In fact, the poodle set a new record for Fastest Time to Climb 20 Stairs by a Dog on Hind Legs in September 2015, accomplishing the task in just 18 seconds. (His record was broken in January by another dog.)
But Sailor almost didn’t get a chance to learn and perform all of his amazing tricks. His owner, Alex Rothaker, told Guinness World Records that he rescued Sailor when the pooch was just 6 months old. A vet had called the dog trainer to say that the puppy was too aggressive and was going to be euthanized unless Rothaker wanted to adopt him.
Since bringing Sailor home, Rothaker has been teaching his dog numerous tricks. “The greatest thing in life is making people happy and performing and making people laugh,” the dog trainer told Guinness. “And that’s what Sailor does.”
Rothaker also said that when people cheer for his dog, Sailor gets excited because “he knows he’s making people happy.”
The poodle isn’t the first record-setting dog that Rothaker has trained. His pooch Sweet Pea set the record for Fastest 100 Meter With a Can Balanced on Head by a Dog in September 2008.
