DOG lovers are hoping breaking their own world record will be a walkover next Sunday.

The Essex Dog Display Team, based in Doddinghurst Road, Brentwood, are looking to break their own record for most people walked over by a dog.

Currently the mark they set in 2007 stands at 147 but the group want to up it to 150 with their latest attempt which raise money for Sport Relief.

To carry out the challenge, the people will be lined up in leapfrog fashion wearing non-slip tops before two dogs, a Yorkshire Terrier and Jack Russell, are then led over them.

Anyone who is interested in joining the line-up should call 01277 375131 or email

People in the line-up must be 14-years-old or older.
