I also have a menace of monkeys jumping from the car, but because of some people movement, they just use cars to move ahead instead of sitting.



Some monkeys pics I had taken while parking my car.

Guys,

The chilli powder is doing the trick

I have sprinkled it around my car park area. What next, I think I will have to ask the domestic help on not to clean the area on daily basis, a weekly cleaning, a fresh sprinkle of chilli powder on every Sunday.

Thanks guys for all your help.

Since the thread started with a dog and its love for a car...
thought I would make a dogged effort to bring the topic back to dogs by posting a 'sleeping doggy' picture taken on a dog day afternoon below my office.
Disclaimers:
1> Neither the dog or the car are mine
2> No dogs were harmed during the photoshoot. Cant guarantee the same about the car!

The dogs in my area leave my car alone. (Or is it that I haven't noticed them on my car yet! ) I have no parking space at where I live, so I have to park the car on the roadside.

But, somehow, they like my bike a lot and at times two dogs will be seen napping on the bike. (but, no hanky-panky). Had to change the seat cover, et all

Bharat thanks for putting up the picture of Peacock, i think some way you are lucky to see our National Bird daily, which we need to go and view at the Zoo.

hhahahaha.good one. Probably the dogs find it safe to be on a TOP location. Natural instinct of animals I guess. I have seen dogs sleeping on push carts that are full of fruits, and the sick vendors sell these fruits to people.yuck.that sucks.

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

The street dog broke my windscreen wipers and also put nice long scratches on the bonnet and roof, not to mention that the roof has a big dent now but I think some heavy blows from inside should do the trick.

There must be a solution, please help.

Spread some chilli powder in the area where you usually park your car.

Chilli powder will keep street dogs away from the area you have sprikled.

Same used to happen with my M800 and I knew that I'd soon be getting me new Swift so everytime I used to give them a little chase thinking they wouldn't do it again but they only stopped when I first hit them with a small pebble as and when they used to get down from the roof and then I used to chase them for about 100 mtrs. I still recall people giving me the "This guy is crazy!!" look as they could only see me chasing the dog, not why I was chasing them.

I did this exactly 4 times and since then no dog is sleeping on any of the car's roofs around. Just to mention that I was able to hit the dog only once out of 4.

We had this problem on our cars some ten years back. Dogs sitting on the car would break wipers and leav the car dirty and with lots of scratches.

A very innovative idea came from my uncle. We made a bet of nails. We bought sheets of rubber. These were heavy sheets (3mm or so thick) and wont fly off due to the wind. After cutting it to sizes to fit on the roof and bonnets, the sheets were pierced with cobblers nails. The nails are about 3/4" long and wont pass through because of the flat head. The bed of nails was ready.

It was laid on the car after being covered. This is to prevent scratches from the head of the nails which cover the bottom of the rubber sheet.

Might sound crazy but it worked!!

^ Awesome idea!!

Fortunately none of this has happened where I live(maybe because all dogs are scared of me(airgun))

I keep a pepper spray for if something like this ever happens!
