Dog handlers have taught dogs to use ATMs and make purchases

March 5 2007

British dog handlers were able to train dogs to use these ATMs and shop at department stores.

Now hairy geeks can become a real mainstay for people confined to a wheelchair. Many people with disabilities can independently insert the card into the hole of the ATM and type code. However, it is difficult to get the money and pick up a card. This helps them and the dog. They carefully take notes and plastic credit card teeth, to then present them to the owner.

In addition, the experts teach animals to press buttons at pedestrian crossings, as well as to remove from store shelves goods and transfer them to the host.

Every year, dog handlers are trained about 30 dogs, mostly rock labrodor and golden retriever. Training each dog takes about two years. Tells MIGnews.
