Two California dogs set record for most tricks performed in a minute


Can you do 28 tricks in a minute? Two border collies named Wish and Halo can, and they have set the world record.

Guinness World Records announced that the border collies performed the most tricks by two dogs in one minute. Wish also broke the record for the fastest 5-meter crawl by a dog, achieving the feat in 2.175 seconds, according to the record keeping organization.

The dogs and their trainer, Emily Larlham of El Cajon, Calif., completed the tricks to submit to Guinness for approval on Dec. 22.
