Otto the Skateboarding Dog takes world record

VIDEO: Bulldog skateboards into world record books

OTTO was a skateboarding bulldog with big dreams.

And now, with the help of the Guiness World Records, he has achieved worldwide notoriety.

The South American canine has glided majestically through a 30-person human tunnel in the Peruvian city of Lima.

Otto now holds the record for "longest human tunnel travelled through by a skateboarding dog".

According to Guiness World Records: 

"The three-year-old pooch valiantly skated through the legs of 30 humans, who all faced the same direction and stood with their feet apart to allow the talented English Bulldog to pass freely through the human tunnel without being led or touched."

Otto is not merely a skateboarding bulldog, he is also able to surf and skimboard.

The former world record holder for fastest dog on a skateboard -- Tillman -- died in late October.

Also an English Bulldog, Tillman died at age 10. He earned his "fastest 100m on a skateboard by a dog" record by travelling the distance in 19.678 seconds.

In Lima, Peru, Otto the Bulldog glided into the record books with a triumphant attempt at the Longest human tunnel travelled through by a skateboarding dog, all in honour of Guinness World Records Day 2015.
