There’ll be a sea of dogs of the animal AND human kind at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk this weekend!

The ACT shelter is on track to breaking a Guinness World Record for the most number of people dressed as dogs.

“We only have to have about 440 to break the record, however, we’re not sure how many of them plan to dress up,” RSPCA ACT CEO, Tammy Ven Dange, said.

“We would like to get as many people there as possible because that means it’ll make it harder for someone else to break the record if we happen to do so that day.”

Overall, there’s about 2000 people and 1000 dogs registered for the Million Paws Walk so far.


If you’re wanting to be part of the record attempt, there’s some simple rules to follow…

“People have to dress from head to toe in a dog costume and they must have ears and a full body costume. Tails are optional,” Ms Ven Dange said.

Costumes must also be clearly recognisable as dogs, with officials on site to check!

The record attempt kicks off at 10am on Sunday May 20 at Patrick White Lawns, with the final count at 10:30am.

“We usually have between 3-5000 people registering, with a lot of them registering this week. So we encourage people to get in there early because if they register online, it’s likely to be a lot faster to get through the gates,” Ms Ven Dange said.
