You know your dog might be able to fetch a ball roll over and even swim but can your dog.
Drive -- car this for a vehicle like that.
And the last couple weeks we saw roe V Australian Cattle Dog driving power wheels all of his own a few weeks back in New Zealand -- -- these dogs learning how to actually drive real cars.
That is all off them.
So what is it about dogs and they -- capable of doing such awesome things.
And Andrea ordinance here she's dog -- expert and she is not in all of that you expect something like that might correct -- I mean on it but.
And I always say to people the dogs have a long history of doing things are amazing to help us -- -- -- originally helped us hunt for food -- Their dogs or service dogs for people with disabilities they're even dogs nowadays that sniff out cancer.
So I think that what we just -- was really cool but I think there's other things that dogs do that are way cooler.
Any real -- for instance the New Zealand dogs I think they train them just so they drove it little car.
So that people would say hey look those -- shelter dogs we can go and we can get those in and they make great.
Pat yes and I love that I think that anything that you do.
To raise awareness not shelter dogs anything you do to enrich your dogs like -- -- contracts I think it's a great thing as long as you choose -- that are safe for your dog the F -- now is driving is driving that car though really trick.
Well it depends I with Madonna I would say it is yes I think that's so how lot of help us understand how as a trainer an expert you might get the dog to do that I love that I'm gonna say something called targeting.
-- and that's probably where the trainers started with these dogs with -- by the way this is -- and targeting is where you teach your dog either touched their nose yes.
Or their cause to some object.
So for example with -- might want her to touch a -- to this object so when she when she touches -- -- I'm gonna say to her.
I'm gonna say yes.
How do you get it to do it the first time it was used in general actually this is -- for this is my cutting boards my kitchen but I hit a very long etc.
and -- are getting -- So I literally just I just that there for the first time that she's just sniffing around she actually doesn't know what I want right now so she might play around -- -- yes I guess -- -- -- food.
And sort of moving forward to encourage her to step forward.
But what you'll start to see is after -- while she's gonna yes she's gonna start to step on that more reliably with -- -- to but the cars we'll probably have something like this or bar.
And they had the dog -- to touch that and then they put it on to the car and they talked a duck to touch it there and then they got the dog used to the -- is is there a point we're.
They'll get so good at driving you have to hide your keys to I would say -- dogs that sense it like teenagers they are.
And that I think -- a rundown of the dog -- and yeah.
The trick those dogs are not actually out on the highway.
Do you really want an answer.
About fascinating stuff -- what are you gonna do with what you just taught and you taught him to step on -- board on what I ignored well actually you know most of the dogs EC commercials -- see movies are taught to target and that's the basis of most behaviors so for example if I wanted to -- to go to -- I would teach -- a target to you and attach it.
To make it look like she was affectionate -- -- and I'll take a long time dragon countries you don't even.
If you are right our thanks so much and -- -- will not normal thank you very things.
