At first glance at looks as though the world really has gone barking mad.

But these mutts are genuinely learning how to drive as part of a charity initiative led by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in New Zealand.

After weeks of the training the dogs are more than comfortable behind the wheel.

The campaign has been launched to change conceptions about the intelligence of the average household pet.

So next time you castigate dogs as being on the dumb side, just paws for thought.
