A dog might bite through a P-rated sidewall, but I don't think they could an LT.

I know this is a 3 year old thread, but since others have added to it...
About 30 years ago my uncle had a dog in the neighborhood chased cars and bit at the tires. Didn't damage the tires. The man that worked on his car told him how to break the dog from doing it. He cut one side out of a burlap bag and put it hanging out from under his hub cap, with a good bit hanging out. That morning he said the dog started chasing him and the next thing he saw was the dog flying through the air, end over end. He hit the ground and took off running home. Never chased my uncle again, just stood in the yard barking at cars. Uncle said he stopped a couple blocks away to take the burlap out and there was a dog's tooth stuck in it.

I grew up in those days. Another trick to break a dog from chasing cars was to wait until the dog got alongside the car, and then push open the door. Time it right and the dog would go rolling. If you did that today, you're car would sustain 5 thousand dollars in body repairs, and you would get 5 years in the slammer for animal cruelty.

Are inner tubes still a thing? If so, would that not be an alright option to fix a few sidewall puncture wounds?

I also realize this is effectively a dead thread, I was just wondering.

Heelers are working dogs and they are going to instinctively go after cattle and other animals. They are very serious about their job. Some, unfortunately, go after cars thinking they are also to be herded. They are good at what they do working cattle though. Not a good companion dog in my opinion and for the dog to be satisfied it needs to be working. I can't imagine one on a leash. With the gunny sack trick and the inner tube trick, you run the risk of breaking the dog's neck. I would just creep down the driveway very slowly until the dog lost interest and then speed up. I think that can be managed. Might even be able to train them with a shock collar not to go after vehicles.

The dog owner's IQ is also questionable.
