The Outside World Russian Dogs Have Figured Out How To Ride The Subway And It’s Incredible Published 1 year ago on Nov 20, 2017 By Jade Wilson In Russia, there is a bit of a dog epidemic. In fact, the number of stray canines roaming the streets of cities like Moscow and St. Petersburg has grown so much in the last few years that animal control can’t even keep up or make an accurate population estimate. Yet, with this many dogs experiencing the hazards of city life every day, they have begun to adapt. How? By learning to ride the subway, of course. The Stray Dogs Of Moscow While the number of strays in Moscow is unknown, the number of strays who ride the subway are not. 20 Russian dogs have been reported as frequent subway riders. While they don’t do the usual 9-t0-5 job like everyone else, they commute the same way, searching the city for food and other dogs. Wikimedia Commons The strays get on at their stop, take a seat like every other passenger, and get off at their destination without a hitch. Needless to say, their intelligence has baffled many. How Do They Do It? No one knows exactly how these animals have learned the intricacies of subway life, but there are several working theories. The first and most commonly accepted is that the dogs use their keen sense of smell to differentiate one stop from the next. Life With Dogs Perhaps the most interesting idea is the subway-buddy theory. This surmises that the dogs learn the routes of specific commuters and follow them to know which stop is their destination. These animals are clever, but how do they navigate the dangers of the station? Experts At Reading People Some people on the subway are rather hostile towards the strays, but this hasn’t stopped the dogs from their commutes. Over the thousands of years that dogs have lived with humans, they have developed a trait that allows them to understand our emotions and moods. This lets the strays avoid the most dangerous passengers on the train. Ned Hardy Amazingly, these dogs are not only smart enough to ride the subway, but to adapt to its dangers just like a human would.
