Default Do You Vacuum Your Dog?

Pulled out the vacuum today to start cleaning couches. Faelan is beginning to blow his coat and there is dog hair EVERYWHERE!!! Anyways, both him and my boxer were doing everything they could to get in front of the hose/brush attachment until I finally gave in and vacuumed them down. It's something they absolutely love, so I was curious as to how many people actually vacuum their dogs and how their dogs feel about it.

I have to post guards around the vacuum just to get it out of the closet.

Lisl is certain that mean ol' vacuum is gonna suck her master right up and she'll never ever see me again.

I have to crate her when I vacuum. Or use my power tools. She thinks those are undoubtably related to the vacuum cleaner and will probably take my arm clean off if she's not there to watch and bark.

I vacuum my golden and he loves it. I just did it yesterday. The GSD watched, so i will gradually teach her that its okay. She is not afraid of the vacuum and she doesn't go after it, she walks right next to me as I vacuum. I have to tell her to move if she's in my way, in no way does she feel that the vacuum is going to hurt her

When I'm using the shop vac, there's Timber waiting for his turn. He loves it!

I'm glad I'm not alone lol! I have been brushing out Faelan every day lately but he loves to eat the clumps of hair that fall off him. (?? Weirdo) At least with vacuuming all the hair ends up inside the canister instead of his mouth. I'm waiting for him to cough up a hairball.

Yes I taught rogue to let me do this. Can't say she loves it, but she tolerates it. Lol

Yes-- Rocket loves the vacuum and I have used it as a training tool: I make him down and wait while I vacuum an area, then he "gets" to be vacuumed, lol.

Adding: we did this today outside also with the rake too.
