Dog lovers break world record after over 100 dogs gather to watch 101 Dalmatians at outdoor cinema

Rachel Marie, 23, invited hundreds of pooches to join her at the outdoor screening of the Disney classic on Sunday afternoon (11/9) in Worcester.

She was attempting to break the record for most dogs at an outdoor cinema screening, which was set in 2019 when 120 mutts turned up in Brazil to watch Pets 2.

And she was left delighted when 127 dogs descended on the grounds of Perdiswell Leisure Centre to narrowly seal the Guinness World Record.

Rachel, of Worcester, said: "I feel a little bit overwhelmed. It hasn’t quite sunk in yet, I can’t quite believe I pulled it off.

"It was a lovely day with a really chilled vibe. There was some concerns about having so many dogs in one area but they were all impeccably behaved.

"We were delighted to set a new world record, it feels like a wonderful achievement.

"I am very OTT in general, so I wanted to see what I could do and push myself towards it. Once I have an idea in my head, I will achieve it."

Rachel, who runs a dog care service, said it was touch-and-go for a while as they only counted 117 dogs as the time of the 3pm screening grew nearer.

She added: "The first time we counted it was 103 so we were a bit concerned we wouldn't make it.
