Distance to Canine Catch
On Sunday, October 14, 2012 at around 12:46pm, Davy Whippet and Rob McLeod broke the Guinness World Record for Longest Flying Disc Throw Caught By a Dog and the WFDF World Record for Distance to Canine Catch with a catch at 134 yards (402 feet). Not only did Davy and Rob break a record that has stood for more than 18 years (set in 1994 by Cheyenne Whippet and Mark Molnar), but Davy also becomes the first dog to officially catch a flying disc over 400 feet.
On Monday, October 9, 2017 Rob McLeod and Davy Whippet unofficially broke the Canine MTA Guinness and WFDF World Record with a throw and catch of 10.59 seconds. This breaks the previous record of 10.56 seconds set in 2014 by Rob and Davy. Rob is throwing a Frisbee Fastback from Discovering the World. The wind was perfect, the sun was high in the sky and Davy was tracking Rob’s throws perfectly.
UPDATE: Rob and Davy are in the 2014 Guinness Book of World Records for this record (on page 40 under Dazzling Dogs), in the 2015 Guinness Book (page 112) and in the 2015 Ripley’s Book (page 82).
