World record dogs

The GUINNESS WORLD RECORD title for the Largest gathering of dogs wearing bandanas is about to be shattered by Saffa’s and it’s all for a good cause too!


Residents of Gauteng can all take part in an attempt to break a current world record. The record is for the largest group of dogs wearing bandanas. The world record is currently held by RSPCA ACT Australia with a total of 764 dogs.

The day will be held in aid of the Animal Anti-Cruelty League and to educate pet owners everywhere about the importance of taking care of their pets. All proceeds raised on the day will be matched by and donated to the Animal Anti-Cruelty League in support of protecting and caring for all animals.

“The day will begin with the registration of both pet owners and their furry friends, where the bandanas will be handed out. Following this, the big countdown in hope of breaking the current world record will begin. After the count, there will be a fun doggy walkathon, where pets and their owners are invited to stretch their legs and receive their award handouts at the finish line.”

After the world record attempt, people are encouraged to stick around and soak up the sunshine at the Irene Village Market. There will be arts and crafts, food trucks, pet stalls, and live entertainment.

The event is taking place at the Big Red Barn Farm Venue near Centurion, Pretoria on Saturday, 28 October 2017. Owners and their doggies are asked to arrive early as the walk will start at 9 am sharp.

To be part of this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt, an entry fee-donation of R20 per dog will be required on the day, or more depending on how much you’d like to donate. You can register for the record-breaking doggy day out online, at, and this includes a doggy bandana
