If you’ve tried to slackline, you know it’s not easy. But Ozzy makes it look like a cinch. Over the years, the welsh border collie kelpie mix has learned to slackline better than most people.



According to the YouTube post, Ozzy had been practicing for more than a year when the video was filmed.

“I had not tried to encourage Ozzy to balance for long duration because I didn’t want him to get bored of the trick,” the post says. “In December 2012 I decided I would put Ozzy forward for a Guinness world record, he is the only dog in world to walk along a tightrope.”
