Ever wonder what the world looks like to your dog? Now، you can know — or، at least you can know what Japan looks like to a dog. Google Japan has rolled out a "Dog View" feature that displays the street from an Akita dog's perspective rather than a Google camera car's، The Verge reports. This also means you get to look at a fluffy dog's head while you navigate around، which is a plus، teen vogue reported.

The footage comes from actual dogs named Ako and Asuka that ran around Japan with cameras harnessed to their backs. Appropriately، it includes dog-friendly attractions like the Akita Dog Museum and the Shibuya train station's Akita dog statue، which is based on a tale about a dog who waited there for his owner years after his death.

A video created by Google shows the pups strolling through streets and hiking trails to create the feature. You can also see photos of the dogs in various locations here. And here's where you can have an Akita lead you on a virtual Google Maps tour.

Now، they just need to make a version with limited color vision so you can truly see the world (or at least parts of it) through a dog's eyes.
