DOGS BEING TRAINED TO DRIVE CARS, REALLY - “Three SPCA dogs are learning how to drive in a bid to change the public’s perception on the intelligence of rescue dogs.”
Three shelter dogs at SPCA Auckland in New Zealand are being trained to drive cars as part of a campaign to encourage adoption of shelter dogs. Shelter dogs named Monty, Ginny, and Porter are being trained to drive a specially modified Mini Cooper (accelerator and brake are by the steering wheel).  They will still be accompanied by a human who will assist with the steering wheel.  The results of the training will be unveiled on TV next week. Read more from the New Zealand Herald:





The challenge was then taken up by acclaimed animal trainer Mark Vette and his team from Animals on Q to showcase just how intelligent SPCA dogs can be.
“I think sometimes people think because they’re getting an animal that’s been abandoned that somehow it’s a second-class animal,” said SPCA Auckland CEO Christine Kalin.
***
“Driving a car actively demonstrates to potential rescue dog adopters that you can teach an old dog new tricks. The dogs have achieved amazing things in eight short weeks of training, which really shows with the right environment just how much potential all dogs from the SPCA have as family pets…”
“Monty, Porter and Ginny are great dogs each with their own distinct personality. You wouldn’t believe any dog could learn to drive a car on its own and the way all three SPCA rescue dogs have taken to training really does prove that intelligent creatures adapt to the situation they’re in. It really is remarkable,” said trainer Vette.





Hopefully this campaign will result in the adoption of more great shelter dogs in New Zealand.  You can watch a series of videos about the car modifications and  dog training here. Click here for the full story, and here to learn more about SPCA Auckland.
