You can put the parachute material cover and on the top put tirpal.
Lets see what the dogs do with tirpal
Nice thought. But putting it up and removing it on daily basis will take a lot of time.

I cant imagine, after getting ready for office, i come down and have to remove those covers, I start early morning around 0700, so for that i get up at 0600 now if i have to do this then i think i will have get up by 0545.

It seems that it will be difficult for me, but can be tried.

Thorned bush, i have seen some of my neighbours using it, but i feel that thorns in itself may damage the paint.

Water soaked cloth seems to be the best idea so far, experts can the car metal and paint withstand a water soaked cloth on daily basis for at least 8 hours.

Bharat ji hope your SX4 is recovering well.

even dog's have good taste, instead of below the car, above the car! Soon they would come and ask you for keys and sleep inside, make sure you have nice leather upholstery in there!

Hey look at the +ve side, no thief will ever come close to your car

Put a nice mat on the bonnet and let the sleeping dogs lie.

I am using the tirpal (green military kind of material)to cover indica, It takes time but its effective not a single scratch from animal claws. I can promise on this coz One of our neighbor has a cat who plays whole day on my car and our next neighbor has a dog who always jumps as soon as he seen this cat; my car used to be the battle ground.

Bubby why don't you try the way it was done by "Lucky" (Oye Lucky - lucky Oye Movie) then certainly the dog wont come near your car but can certainly come near you. For this activity also you have to wake up at 6.45.
Just for laugh: No hard feelings.

Try to keep your car covered, it can help. I remember when we bought our first car Maruti 800 Deluxe in 1984-85, we used to live in Gulabi Bagh area. There street dogs used to have sports event using our car. They used to run, jump from bonnet and then jump down from back. This even used to go for few min. Then they take some rest on top and then disappear. There is no option other then keep car sun facing or keep it covered. Generally in summers they use roof top for rest in shades, otherwise they go under the car for some shade.

Is this feature specific to Delhi -- I sincerely wish they dont visit their relatives elsewhere and spread this habit.

LOL @ SAM -- hope Jenny is not reading this

It is 'scare-crow'... the stuffed man... a scare-dog that looks like a cop with a Laati in his hand.. should work better..

Dogs can be dissuaded by strong smells, I remember reading somewhere that tiger or lion poo really scares dogs away ! I'm guessing pepper or chilli-powder would also help.

P.S. - I sincerely hope the canines in Chennai don't pick up on this !
Poooooosss of Lion or Tiger. I am just thinking about the author of the article you read.

I think chilli powder is a better bet.

Sorry to hear about the damage, its actually very annoying.

Toy pistols are a good idea, I hope they dont take revenge on me.

Do what we do about Monkey's in Shimla as we have more of them than dogs in Delhi. Place some thorny bushes over a rag or a car cover on the bonet and the roof. You will just need to do that on the bonet as dogs cannot jump on the the roof unlike monkeys. I used to do that regularly as i had to straighten the roof of my 800 every mornig from inside as the monkey's would jump over it and dent it everyday. Finding thorny bushes in kalkaji may be another story.
