How do you stop a dog from "washing" my tires?

1. Get a six pack and give fido a full bowl of water.
2. Park your car in the dog's favorite spot.
3. Sit on the porch where you can watch it all.
4. Get your key fob and be ready to hit the alarm.
5. As soon as the chap lifts his leg, wail on the alarm!
6. Do this as often as possible to negative condition the mutt.
7. When the dog lifts his leg elsewhere, give him a praise, and maybe a beer.
a. If you don't have a key fob alarm, get a can of compressed air.
b. Don't punish the dog, condition it. Make it wary of the CAR. Like the car is the bad guy, not YOU.
c. Don't enjoy the six pack too fast or you may beat the dog to his own trick!
d. If the dog does it to your car, others must be 'pissed' as well. So your friend should be willing to entertain your interest, in everyones' behalf.

Most of my friends do not understand the care I take with my car, and I usually take that into consideration.
Like when we wen to lunch last week, they tried to take my antennae off. They are not malicious and think they are making a joke.
So in the future, I'll just park farther away, so they won't feel like walking all that way to pull a fast one.

didn't get much, but here's what I got :
get fake fire hydrant and set it a little ways from your car
you take a leak on your tires and mark your territory before the dog does (that dog must have good taste in cars) if you're really talented you can start and stop 4 times (or run around) .
smack the dog everytimes it does this, dogs learn

I have a customer whose Choclate Lab and Rotweiler would piss on my wheels. Every time they got close, I would loudly yell, "NO" and they finally figured it out. Now, I am the only one who goes to their house and doesn't get dog piss on my tires. When they even get close to my car, I stare them down and they slink away.
