Video: Dogs taught to drive cars
Thursday 06 December 2012
A project in New Zealand has been teaching dogs to drive cars.
Over the course of several months, three canines have been put through their paces with intensive training to teach them to use a gear stick, sitting in the driver's seat and steering a car.
After the initial five-week training period, the dogs were put in go-carts before going behind the wheel of a car.
The dogs are set to show off their new skills when they drive on live television next week.
