Argentina: 'Dog Runner Ship' walks dogs by the dozen in Buenos AiresMay 23, 2019 at 17:58 (GMT) · Published
It's become known as the "Dog Runner Ship" - a vehicle assembled by Buenos Aires resident Diego Pouso to walk a dozen dogs simultaneously, as footage filmed on Wednesday shows.
Pouso first constructed a four-wheeled vehicle with pedals but then he added electric power equipment.
"It has an electric motor that is here. Here is its computer, its batteries and its charger, like a giant cell phone", said Diego Pouso, a professional dog walker.
He said he came up with the idea 15 years ago to overcome the downsides of walking many dogs together, like fighting or entanglement of leashes.
Since then Diego and his 'ship' have become local celebrities. "When I first appeared, it was a revolution, imagine, it did not exist anywhere, a revolution. They applaud and I even got asked for autographs," said Pouso.
