Walking for Welfare: Charity Dog Walk Wins Guinness World Records Title

It’s Dachshunds galore! Agria Dog Walk UK has made an incredible splash with its inaugural GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement, breaking the record for Largest Dachshund Dog Walk on Saturday 18th May, with 342 dachshunds in attendance.
Walking for Welfare: Charity Dog Walk Wins Guinness World Records Title
  • Agria Dog Walk, in partnership with English Heritage, has achieved the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of the “Largest Dachshund Dog Walk” at Marble Hill House, London
  • 342 dachshunds took part, with more than 1500 dogs participating in the Agria Dog Walk across the UK
  • A total of £20,000 will be donated to support rescue centres and animals in need 

The record was broken at Marble Hill House, London, and required a minimum attendance of 250 Dachshunds to cross the finish line. Supporting the event and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt, animal welfare activist and TV personality Jodie Kidd joined with her dog, Sausage, encouraging owners to bring their precious pups along to help smash the record in the name of animal welfare.  

Vicki Wentworth, CEO at Agria Pet Insurance, says: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have won the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. It’s an incredible achievement, and it was an absolute pleasure to watch so many passionate people and pups come together to help support a great cause. We had a fantastic turnout, and we’d like to thank everyone who showed up to walk the walk in the name of animal welfare.”

Committed to supporting dogs in need, Agria, one of the world’s leading animal insurers, will be donating an impressive £20,000 for rescue and rehoming centres as a result of the charity Dog Walk, which took part at three English Heritage locations across the UK, as well as Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway and Sweden, where Agria also provides pet insurance.

In partnership with English Heritage’s Dog-Friendly Days Out and supported by The Kennel Club, the day was filled with family-friendly fun, with approximately 1500 dogs taking part, attending official sites across the UK or participating through the Digital Dog Walk. 
Those who participated in Agria’s Digital Dog Walk generated donations by sharing a picture of their pup on social media, tagging @agriapetinsurance and using #AgriaDogWalk2024.
