San Francisco skydiving photographer and videographer, Nathan Batiste has been bringing his dog Riley, a Dachshund-mix, to the air field for years. When Riley kept trying to follow him onto the plane during his dives, it occurred to him that maybe his 4-legged daredevil friend would like to jump, too.
So, he had a friend design a tandem harness for the 4-year old pooch.
The following video, courtesy of ABC 7 News, was taken during Riley’s first jump.
Batiste says Riley really seemed to love skydiving, especially after the chute was opened and they began floating gently toward the ground because he could just relax and look around.
Watch Riley’s first jump here – do you think he looks happy?
