    Interesting article! As for recording .vs. car, chances are the guide dogs were paying attention to ultrasonic qualities of the Fiat’s sonic emitter (dogs can hear up to aprox. 60 khz). Most audio devices can’t record or play back ultrasonics, so their “sounds” will be of less interest to dogs.
