"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Heck. I'd do a lot better than that if the nice blonde lady would give me a treat, rub my head and give me kisses afterward!
It's not how well the bear dances...
That's all fine and dandy until you're on the interstate doing 75 and SQUIRREL!!!!
Fido is now better than 99% of the drivers in MA. NJ and FL.Gerry
I could save a fortune in cab fare with one of those.
Now teach 'em to drive with a beer in one paw, and the other out the window.
pax,"It's not how well the bear dances..."I am relieved to know that great minds still think alike. ;)
I want to know how they trained the dog to not stick its head out the window. The rest of it looks easy.stay safe.
Burn rubber or rub bottom along the carpet? Good doggie!
Well, why not....Dog's got a license after all...BGM
As a former compact SUV* owner, I must point out that "roll over" is probably not a command you want to teach your driving dog....*The first vehicle I ever owned was a 1988 Suzuki Samurai. While the Consumer Reports hit-piece was sufficiently flawed that Suzuki won a lawsuit against Consumer Union, it's fairly obvious that anyone expecting a Samurai to corner like a Corvette will likely roll the Sami. OTOH, anyone expecting a Corvette to handle trails like a Samurai will likely face a best-case scenario of an expensive tow-truck bill, with extensive repairs to the undercarriage being quite likely.
IMPD could train their K-9s to drive for them.
He'll never make it in NASCAR if they only teach him to turn right. Durn kiwis...
Kristopher,But then IMPD would have to use St. Bernards for their K-9s.BGM
Can't decide between your Suzuki Samurai and your Corvette for off-roading? The solution to your problems is.... Lamborghini:http://video.news.com.au/2227167766/Lamborghini-goes-4WD
Had a Suzi Sami once. Nice little 4WD, if you didn't ask too much of it.55MPH into a headwind on I465 with 2 people in the car was apparently too much.
Watch out Mr Postman!
Now, just teach him to make a beer run! P-/ arrr
skidmark said..."I want to know how they trained the dog to not stick its head out the window." I'm thinking that they've governed the engine down to about 1 mph, so the trainer can stay ahead of it walking backwards. As far as I can tell, dogs stick their heads out to feel the wind in their ears, and the dog can WALK faster than that car is moving. But there is a whole lot of training behind that video. It's not difficult if you have some idea of what you're doing (and picking a German Shepherd is a good start - they're as smart as a carnivore can be without wondering why they're doing all those tricks for a bite-size treat when there's 100+ pounds of very fresh raw meat standing right in front of them), but it takes a lot of time to get that good.
