Yes, they could “drive” the car, but they can’t take it for a spin on the streets, they’d just crash into something, because they don’t pay any attention to where the car is going. I don’t know if they even conceptually put it together that they are in control of where the car goes. A primate is smart enough to understand that, but a dog, maybe not.

The raw intelligence to drive is there, The fact that the dog can operate a vehicle is proof of that. He may not be intelligent enough to go beyond that, but it is there.

The point of the original video is to show that shelter dogs are quite trainable, if they are given that training and care. The number one reason why people claim to be returning dogs to shelter was that the dog is not trainable and doesn’t get along with the owner.

That’s not the dog’s fault. :)
