About 1.20pm a police officer saw a stolen car crash into another vehicle in the South Dunedin area, a police spokeswoman said.
Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled.
As the vehicle decamped, police saw it continue on and crash into multiple other vehicles.
Police followed until the driver turned into a driveway in Middleton Rd, and two police vehicles blocked the stolen car.
The driver then reversed back into the police vehicles, damaging a dog van.
No police officers were injured, but a police dog received a cut to its mouth.
The driver, a 25-year-old man, was arrested and charged with reckless driving, unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, and failing to stop when followed.
He is due to appear in the Dunedin District Court today.
