EL CAJON, Calif. — Guinness World Records is recognizing two very good boys for their latest title: most tricks performed by two dogs in one minute.

Emily Larlham set the record on Dec. 22, 2020 with her two border collies, Wish and Halo.

Larlham is a dog trainer in El Cajon, California, where she has spent her life and career improving pet owners' relationships with their dogs. Larlham created a YouTube channel with dog training tips in 2007 that has since grown to 275,000 subscribers.

Larlham uses a unique kind of training strategy — called Progressive Reinforcement Training — that does not use physical or psychological intimidation to get dogs to be obedient.

In the record-setting attempt, Wish and Halo completed 28 tricks, including twirls, waves and high-fives.

Wish also set another record on his own: fastest 5-meter crawl by a dog, which he completed in 2.175 seconds.
