    Dear Friends,

    I have a unique problem here...

    I live in an apartment in Ahmedabad. We are allowed to park only 2 cars in the allotted parking, rest of the cars we have to park in the open area outside gate. I cant ask my parents to park their car outside and so I have to park my FGP out (Sadly) :cry:... We have too many stray dogs in our area and they climb on the cars and rest on the roofs... Stronger, Commanding and Dominating the dog - Higher the position he gets (on SUV)... in the process they have scratched my FGP's bonnet, windscreen and roof so badly, I am terribly pissed off with the same... We can simply take a stone and woo them away but cant keep a full time security personnel for my FGP... :cry:

    I got that thick waterproof cloth material(Old Style) cover for my FGP as well but the poor Banjaras live road side stole it... Its not their fault afterall... I feel pity for them as well... They also need shelter to cover themselves under extreme heat and rains as they live roadside...

    Its a terrible feeling to see scratches on beloved Ride... Does any fellow fiatian know the remedy to avoid dogs climbing on our car? :anyone

    Find below the attached pics of my car's bonnet....

    Try this home remedy. Keep a bottle of water near to your car. usually dogs are afraid of(or because of any other reason) that and doesn't come near to it. This is a successful method for us to avoid dogs lying in front of our dogs. I am curious to know whether this works with Gujju dogs. Works with Mallu dogs and Goan dogs. :D

    Which products are dog repellent ? Are they in form of sprays or cremes? do they have any adverse effects on the color coats of the car? any info on that?
    Where are such products available?

    well one more... and we all accept this universal truth :p

    Buy/catch any female dog from nearby and attach a string to it and get it tie with your grill. Then none of the dog will be having gut to climb on your bonnet..

    Female dominate everywhere being it human or animal ::OO

    Dogs from neighborhood also join and it will become a ramlila maidan.

    @Naughty: Keep it on ground. Don't keep it on bonnet or any other place. If possible keep two, one at front and other at back (copy right protected):D
