dog bites on the bumber

hi there,
does anyone out there have the same problem like me when you try to get out the drive way in the mornings (or when you try and get out any time of day) and the dog just wants to bite the front of the car.

for details about the kind of dog he is about 8 years old, a bordercollie kelpie type of dog. mum can get out the drive way in her car but its a 4 cylinder but for some reason he comes and just bite the crap out of the front of the fairmont when the motor is going.

if anyone has an idea for the dog to stop this (not by putting him down and using water pistals), please tell me cause i want to stop this. Is there something i could wipe on the front of it that dog dont like or any other idea.

When i get some photos soon i'll show you all what he has done already.

thanks

Try putting paprika or another peppery substance mixed in water or cooking oil on the bumper or maybe even lemon juice:s3 It should do the trick if the dog gets a good amount on its tongue.

FORD RULES OK

The same way you disiplin any animal that does something you don't like.
The second the dog comes out to do that stop the car jump out and belt it one.
I'm not saying punch it or anything (don't want to hurt it)
just a firm open hand slap.

if you hoped out of the car the dog tends to run off and hide in the bushes. and when you hope back into the car and close the door he belts out for another bite or 2 before your out on the road.

Maybe just as it's about to sink it's teeth into it, give a fair long hollar of the horn, and keep doing it until he learns not to anymore. Might work... And you won't have to hit it.

Hay Sven, I have the exact same problem.

I have a pure bread boarder collie (same colour at Toby on Harry’s Practice) and she is 8 months old. She chews on our front bumpers, my ea and my mums 2002 Camry. She will not stop, we have tried all sorts of things even coated the bumper in mashed chilli and it did not worry her.

I have all ready repaired my bumper myself about 2 months ago but 3 days later when I left it in the garage she got to it again.

To fix the problem mix a small amount of vinegar in a spray bottle with water and start your car. Squirt your dog every time he goes for the bumper. Do this everyday for a month or 2 and the problem should go away. Be careful not to spray in his eyes.

The easy way to fix the problem is to leave your cars out the front while your dog is out the backyard and just put the cars away at night.

How bout when it comes running for the car, chuck it into drive and go forward instead, so it smashes it's head on the bumper!

Maybe park your car the other way around?

thanks for your replys everyone.
with your comment jason the dog can be left with the car any time of the day and he would not bite or go near it. the only time he starts to get into the car is when you start up the motor and move just a tiny little bit. i might try some mashed chilli or spray the or rub some vinegar on it.
with trying to use the horn it just makes the dog go harded to bite the bumber bar instead of scaring him.

From what you said before the little bastard knows hes doing wrong becuase he runs away when you get out.
He also knows he gets away with it because you don't punish him.
You will forever have un unruly dog that thinks he's the boss unless you disipline him.
My advise is to pull the bugger out of the bush and slap the crap out of him. do this 2-3 times and he won't do it again.
