He trained 14 of his dogs to follow the instructions and walk 5 meters in the conga line which is nothing less than spectacular.
Dogs are human's best friends but they are very mischievous animals that don't quite stay in one spot for long. Considering normal dog behavior, it is very difficult to line up several dogs in a straight file, let alone a conga line. It seems like an impossible task but a German citizen has managed to encourage 14 dogs to stand in a long-winding conga line and has created a Guinness World Record, per Indian Express. Wolfgang Lauenburger and his pack of dogs broke the record set by his daughter Alexa, who achieved the feat with nine dogs in February 2022.
The official Twitter account of Guinness World Records posted a video of Wolfgang and Alexa setting their records. The father and daughter could be seen training the dogs to rest their front limbs on the back of the dog in front. The canines had to go at least five meters while keeping the posture, as per the Guinness World Record criteria. In the video, Wolfgang asks one of his larger canines to take his hand in his and assists them in standing on their rear legs. In the following second, he pats the dog on the back, inviting his other furry friends to join him in the line. Surprisingly, all of the pets understand his instructions and wait for their turn to join the conga line.
The instructor maintains the formation until the final dog reaches its spot. Wolfgang Lauenburger then makes the queue walk with him for a little distance, and the spectacle is nothing less than amazing. The tweet reads, "New record: Most dogs in a conga line - 14 by Wolfgang Lauenburger (Germany.) Wolfgang guided Emma, Filou, Fin, Simon, Susy, Maya, Ulf, Speck, Bibi, Katie, Jennifer, Elvis, Charly, and Cathy in the long line." Notably, the father-daughter team has broken many records with the aid of their pet dogs, including the most rollovers by a dog in a minute, per News 18.

Dogs are absolutely amazing animals and in another heartwarming instance, a video of a dog clinging to a man suffering from heart disease has gone viral on the internet. Brian Benson has cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart struggles to pump blood to the rest of the body. According to NDTV, his service dog remained at his side at all times during the treatment. The video of Benson's extraordinary bond with his dog Magnus has gone popular on the internet. It shows a 6-year-old labrador dog standing next to a hospital bed. The dog can be seen following the man around and even comforting him by lying next to him. Benson wrote on Instagram, "Having him there helped not only me, but he calmed my daughters as well. Magnus being with me 24/7 meant more to me than he will ever know. I am beyond grateful for my boy."
"Thankfully he was allowed to stay with me 24/7 because he is also my service dog. He did exactly what he does best, kept me relaxed and took my mind off the current situation. He knows when to cuddle and when to get a little 'goofy.' He made the medical staff smile and also kept my girls calm. I love this dog more than he will ever know," he added.
