Various feats by two dogs, which were untrained, were recorded at the Dingo   Discovery Sanctuary and Research Centre near Melbourne.

In one video the dog moves a kennel for use as a look-out. In another, several   dingoes were kept in a small enclosure with an envelope containing food   placed out of reach. When the dingoes were left alone, they made several   attempts to reach the food and then one, named Sterling, dragged a table to   use as a step-ladder.

In a paper in the journal Behavoural   Processes, a team of three researchers said the feats were evidence   of “high-order” or “intelligent” animal behaviour.
