How many border collies does it take to break a gathering record? Turns out it’s 576, as proven in an Australian park recently, when the dogs tried to exceed a world record.

In an Australian suburbian park, it might have seemed like an average day. Until 576 beautiful border collies gathered together at one time to break a world record of dogs gathering.

The Border Collie Owners of South Australia organized the gathering, and you can see from this video that it was a park where the fun fur was flying! The AKC notes that Border Collies are intelligent, atheltic, cuddly and most importantly for a working dog, eager to please.

Which was evident Sunday as the herd of collies met up and wagged some tails. The Guinness World Records people do not recognize breed-specific dog categories for anything, so these pups won’t get any official recognition, but the previous largest gathering was 503, so they’re winners in our eyes!
