dog jumping on cars

Hi

I have a 6 month old Jack Russel bitch as well as a 13 year old JR – the younger one now started to jump on my car’s bonnet – she started at first with my friend’s (it was his classic Porsche and she left it with scratches all over) and there after his other car. Yesterday I saw scratches on my car as well which means she is doing it now all the time. I watched her through the window yesterday where she once again jumped on my friend’s car twice – Unfortunately she only does it when we are in the house so I can’t catch her red handed to give her good hiding. My yard is divided into a front and back yard already and the dogs are at the back – they sleep inside though – I have only one garage so my car is often just parked in the back yard in front of the garage until I park it in the garage later – when someone is staying over, we have to park their car at the back as well, due to high crime rates in SA – I love my dog, but unfortunately will have to get rid of her if I cannot get her to stop this very urgently – I simply cannot allow or tolerate this kind of behavior.

Do you have any suggestions for me on how to train her not to do it? I am very upset about our cars and quite desperate.

Paddy has responded very well to the invisible fence. He has his own yard now and it is safe for him.
They also make a portable "fence" that resembles a smoke alarm, that can be used, in specific locations where you want to keep them out. I put one in the kitchen. There are ranges in feet, that you can select.
Additionally, there are remote zappers, but it is a different collar. Paddy's behavior has been so challenging, with biting for example, that I am investing in one of these as well.
Sorry Paddy, you're stuck with ME. Good luck dog jumping on cars. I hope YOU can solve the problem, because your JRT would just be a problem for the next person! Good luck seriously!
