Does the new feature 'Dog Mode' in Tesla Model 3 mean that dogs can now drive?

The official position of Tesla is that dogs cannot drive. But sales people and Musk's own PR statements frequently contradict this official position.

No, because they didn't yet have the battery capacity to support the volumes at which the Model 3 would sell. Heck, I'm not convinced they have the capacity now, two years later.As I understand it, the Model X was basically filling a gap. The Roadster was introduced in 2008, the
