Dogs Learn How To Drive in New Zealand

Mark Vette, a dog trainer in a city shelter has trained 3 rescue dogs how to drive a car, New Zealand TV3 reported.

With the support of The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Vette decided to demonstrate how intelligent a rescue dog can be.
After months of indoor training the 3 dogs have learned how to change gear, brake and steer with very little help from the trainers.

To encourage the dogs to touch and move the parts of the car necessary to drive, they were given doggy treats. After they had mastered the basic movements needed to drive, trainers put them in mock cars where they training continued.Vette's goal was to train them on basic blocks of commands that will later be chained together into a sequence.
On the final stage of their training dogs were learned how to change speeds.

A modified cars was then created by engineers and a  television show has been set up for Dec 10th when the dogs will be demonstrating live their skills at driving a car.
