VIDEO: Brave dog BASE jumps with owner in Switzerland

A dog with nerves of steel is now one of the only canines in the world to BASE jump with a wing suit.

Dean Potter posted a video on YouTube showing him and Whisper jumping off the Eiger in Switzerland.

Potter is a professional BASE jumper and rock climber, so Whisper is in good hands.

After lowering the dog down to the rock on a rope, Potter loaded the dog up into a backpack and jumped.

Whisper even had goggles on.

The YouTube stunt is actually part of a longer short film called “When Dogs Fly.”

It premiered at the Mountainfilm Festival and Tour last weekend, according to National Geographic.

Potter told The Blaze that he has a custom-made BASE jump rig to help him carry Whisper.
