Dogs break noisy bark record

Daz the dog

The barking record

A team of pooches in London have broken the world record for having the loudest bark ever recorded.

The 30 dogs woofed to victory, barking at a volume of 115 decibels, beating the previous record of 111, which had been set by 224 dogs.

And the event in London's Finsbury Park saw another record fall, as American Shepherd Daz earned the title of loudest individual barker.

His bark, at a huge 108 decibels, was probably much worse than his bite.

The event was watched by an official from Guinness World Records.

We're pretty sure it wasn't watched by many cats though.
