A video of the Auckland SPCA teaching three dogs how to drive has made headlines across the world.

As part of a campaign to highlight just how smart the dogs rescued by the SPCA are, three have been selected to learn how to drive.

The results have been astonishing.

For the past few months, trainers have been working with the canine drivers toward the ultimate goal - driving down a track unassisted by humans.

The videos, covered by Campbell Live, have made headlines throughout Canada and the US, and also Australia.
The Canadian Globe and Mail has featured the video, as well as CBS in the States.
