BERNE, Switzerland — Dean Potter, a self-described “rock climber, walker and human-body-flyer,” packed his 22-pound Australian Cattledog Whisper along when he BASE jumps in his wingsuit.

Potter shot video jumping with Whisper from the 13,000-foot Eiger in Switzerland.

Potter wrote in a blog post that the dog is secured by a harness that’s as strong as those designed for humans.
