Well wouldn’t you know it!? I randomly came across this article while researching another topic. This is just one more reason golden retrievers are the best breed on the planet. Not only does the golden retriever hold the record for the world’s loudest bark, they are also top dog when it comes to holding tennis balls in their mouth, according to The Guinness Book of World Records.
Golden retriever Augie from Dallas, Texas claimed the title in the Guinness Book of World Records on July 6, 2003 when he held 5 regulation sized tennis balls in his mouth!
Golden retrievers were bred to carry game in their mouths, therefore the ideal golden has a gentle bite, and can fit lots in their mouths. The bigger the jowels the better!
