The woman who owned the car went into the store to shop Friday and left her car running with the A/C on so her dogs would stay cool.

But as the woman was inside the store, the dogs somehow managed to put the car in gear, sending it creeping towards the store entrance.

Video shows other shoppers swarm the car only to discover the dogs behind the wheel.

“Dogs can be your best friend,” shopper Ryan Estep told WSAZ. “In this situation they can be your enemy too.”

One witness reported seeing one of the dogs roll down the window after the crash.

Other shoppers could not help but make light of the accident.

“Next thing you know you’re gonna see them shopping or something,” said onlooker Tiffany Bowen.

Experts recommended pet owners leave their animals at home when they go shopping.

“We definitely don’t want you to leave your pet in a car if it’s not running, and apparently if the car is running, that’s not a good idea either,” said Amanda Clark, who co-owns a pet training centre across from where the Walmart.

Police responded to the accident, but no official report was filed.

The crash caused minimal damage to the vehicle and the store, and the woman was able to drive home.
