Anyone have a problem with neighborhood dogs pissing on your wheels ???
I've got a big problem that seems to have started not too long ago.
Can't catch them in the act though only after the fact, must come by late at night and then again early morning.

I keep a bucket full of soapy water handy and try to get it when I can, looks like hell.

Thought about killin'em, , kinda hate to go that far !

Y'all got any ideas on how to keep them pesky buzzards from pissing on my tires???

:confused:

:banghead:

:crying:

:mad:

Here's a thought. I've seen dog repellents that you can buy to hang from shrubs and trees in your landscape to keep them away from doing any damage. They have a repellent attached to a twist-tie sort of hanger (to wrap around the branches.) I wonder if there would be a way to attach some to an area under the vehicle close to each tire to keep them away? I believe their odor is not really noticeable to humans but it affects the dogs themselves. If they could fit under the vehicle out of sight they might do the trick. I would think the spray on stuff would leave residue or damage the finish on the rims or stain the tires.
I don't know what the attraction tires are to dogs to piss on them when they come in contact. I see it happen all the time.

The spray-on repellant works very well and does no harm. I have used it on wheels for precisely this reason in the past, with very good results. Rain washes it off though, so you do need to respray after it gets wet.

But you do not have to spray the wheels forever. After a week or so, whatever goddamn dog is doing this gets broken of this habit and pisses elsewhere. (Sorry, I dislike dogs being kept as urban pets on principle)

I think it's because the dogs are well aware the cars move around and want to mark mobile territory. :banghead:

I don't use any of the repellents so i was uncomfortable recommending the use of a spray on without knowing if it would cause any damage. It seems there are warning labels on everything nowadays. that is good to know that you can use a spray on repellent. I have 2 Rottweiler mix dogs and they don't spray my tires, but they will sniff other vehicle's tires that visit my property.
As with most repellents it says on the package you have to reapply on a regular basis, especially after it rains. It's good to know that you don't have to continue to use the repellent over a long period of time as the dog "gets it".

Yes, as a matter of fact this sounds all to familiar . I had the same problem a few years back until I remembered something my brother did when I was a kid so I devised a system and installed it on my car and have not had one problem since. E-mail me if your interested in one . I know it helps me sleep at night . thanks

you wouldnt happen to have a motion sensitive camera would you? or one of those photo trap things hunters use? you can rent them if you need to. Are you sure its a dog? Because I am assuming your leash laws are the same as they are in CA. If a dog is running around pissing on your car then its clearly not on a leash which you could get the owners in trouble for if you choose to.
