Signs and pictograms for dogs

Can dogs read? Presumably they can understand signs and pictograms.
Here is a collection of interesting pictograms representing different breeds of dogs from Japan and France.

I am particularly intrigued by the use of the Dachshund in the sign from Aix en Provence. Is this only meant for Dachshunds and their owners? Why the choice of this particular breed? Maybe it is just the designer being humouristic, the Dachshund having such a unique and funny silhouette?
Anyway, this is a historic document that will no doubt soon disappear from our streets as dogs can no longer use the 'Caniveau'.
