Students break dog-washing record

September 25th, 2003, 06:12 PM
WORLD records have been broken at Sydney Olympic Park before, but none quite like this.

Twelve university students scrubbed their way into the Guinness World Records book today, washing almost 850 dogs of all shapes and sizes in eight hours.

The University of Sydney veterinary science students broke the record held by a group from the Netherlands, who had washed 715 dogs.

At Sydney Olympic Park today, the students took just six-and-a-half hours to break that record, before going on to set a new record of 848 dogs washed in eight hours.

A spokeswoman for the students told AAP they were "elated, delighted, and exhausted".
