Driving Dogs Pass Test In New Zealand After two months of training, the dogs were strapped into modified cars and headed down a racetrack in what has been described as a world-first. "It's all the dog doing it," trainer Mark Vette said. "He's started the key, put the paw on the brake to allow it to go into gear, put it into drive, paw on the steering wheel, accelerator on, and off he goes down the track." The cars have handles fitted on the steering wheels and dashboard-height brakes as well as accelerator pedals and a speed limiter to make sure the car doesn't go above a walking pace. [HP]
