If you are someone who gets irritated every time you see a canine resting on the roof of your car? If yes, here is something to bring a twinkle of excitement and amusement to your eyes. Recently, a man from Mumbai came up with an innovative idea, which can refrain the dogs from climbing on the roof and bonnet of the vehicle.
The idea introduced by the man, whose name is not yet identified, is unique. The man owns a Maruti Suzuki Baleno and was concerned about the litter and scratch marks left by the four-legged animals on the roof and bonnet of his car. This phenomenon lit up his mind, as a result of which he came up with a ‘desi jugaad’ of keeping these panels away from dogs. The man covered the entire roof panel and bonnet of the car with rubber mats, which come with spikes over them. These rubber mats are tied to the front and rear bumpers and around the outside rearview mirrors.
The man said that he was irritated by the scratch marks made by dogs from their paws on the bonnet and roof panel of the car while climbing or resting on them.
This idea invented by the Baleno owner is not unique but also cost-effective too. While the owner hasn’t revealed the cost of his unique innovation, it is expected to cost low as it uses a basic rubber cover with normal spikes over them. While this might harm the dogs if they are not aware of the spikes on the rubber mats, it will surely scare them and keep them away from the vehicle.
There are other ways
If you are offended or not impressed with this idea of using rubber mats with spikes to keep the dog away from the vehicle, there are a few other simpler ideas that you can try out. You can either use repellant like alcohol-based spray or vinegar, car covers or a security alarm with a high-pitch sound, all of which are decent enough to keep the dogs away from the cars.
With climate change becoming extreme, it is important to provide shelter to stray animals. If you do not want them on your cars, it is a good idea to build some makeshift places for the street dogs.
