Decide to take your dog on a walk. Let your rottweiler urine on the car on the effected area. Repeat as needed. This can work with anyone model of car.

Rubbing compound
However, make sure you remove any excess compound completely after completing your job.

If you can't get them off... take it to a detailer. Full exterior detail should be about $70-$100.
If detail doesn't work, then you have to have it painted.

Years ago I had the same thing happen. Took the car to a body shop and they rubbed something on it and it was gone if less than 5 minutes. Best $25 I ever spent.

I scraped my car along the white painted trim around my garage door. I took it to the body shop and they removed it with paint thinner.

The real art of this is knowing if you can clean the paint up completely, or if you have to leave a little of the scratch in place to avoid cutting the paint too thin. This takes a specific touch and experience helps.

It's possible your dealer has such a detailer, but you will pay less by dealing with the detailer directly.
Yup. How difficult the paint will be to remove depends on a lot of factors, including the type of paint that was used on the pole. Professionals know how to make this kind of damage look as good as can be done. That's their bread and butter. Oftentimes making a problem like this look perfect requires a lot more than just the removal of the paint. A good body man will always give you options and will give a close estimate of each option's cost.

Wet sand paper.
Start with 800 grit, very gently. VERY. Lots of water. Most of it should come off. Then you>1200 grit>2000 grit> 3000 grit>buffing compound>polishing compound.
Btw, denaturate sometimes also works.
