The World Record Attempt For Biggest Gathering Of Dogs In Christmas Jumpers Has Been Smashed

The World Record Attempt For Biggest Gathering Of Dogs In Christmas Jumpers Has Been Smashed

The world record attempt for the biggest gathering of dogs wearing Christmas jumpers was smashed on Sunday when 350 hounds from all over London came together in Battersea Park.

The record was previously set by BorrowMyDoggy and Save the Children in 2017 after they rounded up 300 canine companions - but two years on, the charity and dog retailer have broken their world record once again.

The world record attempt saw dog owners and their adorable pooches wear their most festive knits to promote the charity's upcoming Christmas Jumper Day on Friday, 13th December.

Not only did the event make its way into the world record books, it also raised much-needed funds for Save the Children's vital work.

Speaking about the world record attempt, Gabrielle Taylor, Save the Children spokesperson, said: "A huge thank you to every dog and owner who helped us break the world record for most dogs in Christmas jumpers.

"We are so grateful to BorrowMyDoggy and all the adorable pooches who wore their festive knits today to support Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day."

Adding: "This is the second time we've broken the world record, and we can't believe that we got even more humans and hounds involved this year! It's a really fun, festive way to raise awareness of important issues.

"Money raised through Christmas Jumper Day could help Save the Children bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support."
