In the first back to the future, Einstein, the dog, gets sent forward in time by 1 minute. If you have to reach 88 miles per hour, how did he get back? He can't drive a car, he's a dog.

    Einstein? In Back to the Future? – Edlothiad Nov 24 '17 at 9:43
  • TIL there’s a dog in Back to the Future. I swear I’ve seen each film at least twice... – Edlothiad Nov 24 '17 at 10:14

    How did Laika, the first dog to be sent to space get there? She can't fly the damn space shuttle. – Varun Nair Nov 24 '17 at 10:58

    @Edlothiad, Doc has the same breed of dog (presumably played by the same dog) in the 1955 timeline, but he's called Copernicus. – Darren Nov 24 '17 at 12:34

The Doc is very clearly seen driving the car with a remote control.

The car is sent one minute into the future. Doc and Marty chat for a minute, and then the car reappears. From the perspective of Einstein, no time at all has passed between the Delorean disappearing and reappearing (in fact, I think Doc says as much in the film).
