Dean Potter is a world-famous rock climber, high-liner and human flyer, according to his YouTube and website. 

While on a recent trip to Eiger, Switzerland, Potter decided to strap his Australian Cattledog, or Queensland Heeler, to his back via a Ruffwear DoubleBack Harness, and base jump with her. 

The 22-pound dog appears to be calm and relaxed during the entire experience and Potter has defended his decision in a detailed article here. He also encourages people to travel with their dogs responsibly.
