Woman taught dog to dial 911
A US woman who ended up with three police cars outside her home claims she was teaching her dog to dial 911.
Sylvia D'Antonio, 46, of Lake Parsippany, New Jersey, was charged with disorderly conduct for making three late night 911 calls.
But she insists the calls were made by Slayer, her German shephard, reports the Asbury Park Press.
A police dispatcher was alarmed because when the calls were picked up "the only communication was someone breathing".
The calls were traced and three squad cars raced to D'Antonio's home where they found there was no emergency.

I never taught my dog to do that, but he hit the spped dial button twice and dialed 911. Both times he was home alone! I was told by LE ( an officer was posted here both times when I returned home) that if it happened a third time we could be charged $250. I tried joking around by saying well make sure you bill the dog! The cop didn't find it humorious We no longer have phones within reach of the dog!
