‘Smart’ dogs that can drive!
Dogs behind the wheel! Animal experts in New Zealand are teaching dogs how to drive and it took the three canines just eight weeks to master the basics.
The dogs initially learned to drive a wooden cart and then graduated to a modified Mini in which they sat on their haunches in the driver’s seat and their paws on the steering wheel.
Their feet go on extension levers which are attached to the accelerator and the brake while their paw rests on the gearstick.
An animal welfare group in New Zealand trained the dogs to get behind the wheel in an attempt to show the public how intelligent they are, the Daily Mail reported.
