Dogs set record for loudest bark

Dogs barking in world record attempt
The dogs were given three chances to break the world record

A group of dogs in north London have set a new world record for the loudest collective bark.

The 30 dogs emitted a group bark of 115 decibels in Finsbury Park, breaking the record of 111 decibels set by 224 dogs in US state Vermont last year.

A German shepherd dog called Daz Lightning set the loudest individual bark record at 108 decibels.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Marco Frigatti witnessed the event and confirmed both new records.

The 30 dogs were given three chances to break the group bark record, succeeding on their final attempt.
