|Airman1stclass||My puppy was like that aswell. I started feeding him right next to the vacuum. So he had no choice but to be by it. Now I vacuum him atleast once a day while he's eating. With the brush attachment of course.|

|carrieincolorado||Chevelle goes ballistic when I use a shovel/posthole digger/broom... she FREAKS out and attacks it. But she could care less about the vacuum. She sits and doesn't move... and I have to nudge her so she doesn't get her tail sucked up. So much fun when you're trying to vacuum the stairs and the Velcro dog is on each tread with you on the descent as you TRY to actually make contact with carpet... lol!|

|Ellimaybel||I either put Gunther outside where he sits by the front door or I ignore him completely. I vacuum, he barks. It doesn't stop me and it's not making him hide. I think he thinks it's attacking me or something. I just completely ignore it and go about my business. When it's over he goes up to the vacuum, barks once more and then he feels better and ignores it. Right now he's asleep with his head on the carpet cleaning machine and he hates that thing even more.|

I would do what others have said. I would have someone run the vacuum in another room while you feed her treats. I would do it once a day. Hopefully he will get used to it and know a treat is in order. =)

I can't get mine to move when I vacuum. They lay there while I vacuum around them, run the vacuum into them, they don't move.
Leave the vacuum on and walk away, let the pup explore on his own. I would let it run 15 minutes at a time several times a day. Eventually the noise won't even phase the pup

Kuma of Manenggon - Omg that's hilarious, her tongue getting sucked in but she likes it ahaha! Brilliant!

|Harry and Lola||Don't feed into his fear of the vacuum, ignore it. I would leave the vacuum in the room once you have finished, turned off and let him approach it in his own time to sniff it etc and bring it out often to use, he will get use to it as long as you help him by showing him there is nothing wrong.|

Slowly connect vacuum with good stuff and cross your
Fingers. I was lucky and Kuma was exposed to it while we
We're playing. She gets her tongue sucked into hose and then plays with it. Good luck.
