He doesn't care that much, although he will move when it approaches him. I'm stunned that he completely ignores the roomba, though. I thought he would think that was the best toy ever.

Kaiser is so silly. Ever since he was little I tried to pretend that the vacuum was no big deal. This basically consisted of me first showing it to him "off" (no problem there), then rolling it around (hmm...interesting), then with a quick "on" (oh my!). From the moment Kaiser heard the vacuum "on", he decided that he didn't trust it with me. He doesn't bark. He doesn't howl. He doesn't try to attack it. Instead, he very warily FOLLOWS me throughout the house as I vacuum, NEVER taking his eyes off of it. He will get out of its way if I change directions, but he never attacks. He just acts very concerned that this whole vacuuming business might get out of hand...so JUST in case that happens he stays nearby on the off-chance that I might need his rescuing. lol!

OMG ... I have the same thing with Kyleigh! I "trained" her the same way. Just a thing that makes noise, no big deal.

The best tho was one time I tripped over the hose and fell and she went crazy barking at the hose and growling at it. I was so busy laughing at her that it took me a good 30 seconds to get back up and shut it off and let her know that all was well in the world.

let me tell you, the next couple of times I vaccumed she REALLY watched that hose!

lol I just laughed (literally "out loud") because while I've not tripped, I have accidentally banged into things and Kaiser rushed over to STARE at the vacuum like how could it DARE do that to me

Just the other day my wife wanted to show me what Maggie did so she told me to turn on the vacuum and watch her.

Yeah it's obviously the wife has spoiled me just a bit too much seeing that I couldn't find the on/off switch???

Gunner doesn't care NOW! But then.......


He was about 6 or 7 months old in the video. Funny thing is he didn't like the swiffer either. He'd try to bite at it.
The big vacuum, a Dyson, didn't phase him much, he'd simply get up and leave the room, but the little one brought out such a funny reaction.
He doesn't do it now, guess he figured it wasn't going to do anything but make noise.
