8 Amazing Dog World Records Set By Brave Furry Beings!

08 Jul 2016 | by Prekshita Patwa | Posted in: Wag Brag

Our dogs make us proud by simply doing a handshake sometimes. So imagine the level of pride of these pet parents! WORLD RECORDS! I mean this is unreal. 

Dogs are all-rounders. Truly. Have a look if you don't believe it:

1. First diabetes detection dog

The first diabetes detection dog was Armstrong, a yellow Labrador retriever trained in 2003 in California to detect via scent the subtle chemical changes leading to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), a condition that if left unchecked can cause a diabetic to slip into a potentially fatal coma. So successful was Armstrong that Dogs for Diabetics (D4D), a charity training diabetes detection dogs, was founded in 2004.
