Meet Henry the paragliding cockapoo

MEET Britain’s paragliding dog — that regularly takes to the skies with his owners.

Henry the three-year-old cockapoo has flown more than 20 times over the hills of west Wales, and even in the Alps.

Owners Amy Jones, 38, partner Joe McCarthy, and Amy’s dad Rob, 67, leap off mountains and hills with the dog strapped on their laps.

Video footage shows Henry looking relaxed as he flies with Rob, 67, over hills near his home in Tywyn, west Wales.

The pooch also enjoyed a bird’s eye view of his favourite beach on Boxing Day as he swept along the Dyfi Estuary.

He started high on the hills above Aberdyfi before paragliding down to the seafront — enjoying panoramic views across the stunning landscape.

Ready, set: Henry gets strapped in ready for a flight

Amy, who runs a roofing firm with dad Rob, said: ‘Henry is hilarious — his expressions are very funny because he is always so happy.

‘We go over to the Alps every year in a VW campervan and Henry comes with us and flies. As soon as he gets his harness on to paraglide you can tell he wants to go — as soon as it is on he’s ready.

‘Passersby expect it to be a kid in the back but then they see his little head. People think we are bonkers but it’s so funny.’
