Dogs pass driving test!

Dogs pass driving test!

I've heard of teaching old dogs new tricks. But teaching dogs how to drive? You have to see it to believe it ...

Two months ago, the SPCA in New Zealand launched a super-creative campaign. Their plan was to teach three rescue dogs how to drive cars. They did this to increase adoption rates by proving that rescue dogs are in no way inferior to any other dogs. Under the slogan, "Dogs this smart deserve a home", our three hairy heroes began their lessons.

And this is how it went. Get ready to smile!

Pretty awesome, hey?

Both Porter and the SPCA deserve a huge round of applause for what they've achieved. Encouraging people to adopt a dog is such a great idea. With 1000s of dogs being killed in pounds every year, choosing to adopt could literally save a life.

Find out more about adopting a dog; then promise to be a lifesaver yourself by taking the pledge to always adopt rather than buy when it comes to companion animals. And if you do that, then I think you deserve a round of applause, too :)

Has your dog got any funny or impressive tricks? My cat's best trick is luring people close enough to bite them. Can you beat that?

That's so cool! I have a dog that can skateboard, weave through legs and jump through my arms when I make a hoop happy

offensively anthropomorphic and very degrading IMO
