A New Zealand dog trainer who taught RSPCA dogs to drive (!) has finally gotten off his ass to train dogs how to pilot a plane. I mean it’s about time, right? God, get it together.
Last year, animal trainer and zoologist Mark Vette spent four months in the UK working with rescue dogs for the series, Dogs Might Fly, a show about teaching dogs how to become pilots. Where is this in America ffs?!
Vette was able to successfully train three rescue dogs, Reggie, Shadow and Alfie, to fly a plane, and even perform tricks, including a figure of eight maneuver. AHHhhhhhhh.
This just made my weekend and my whole life.[AtlasObscura]
