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. :)
Most dogs aren’t that hard to train either, but a lot of people just don’t know the techniques to use, and don’t bother to train them with any consistency.
