I've been dealing with Oreo's nasty habits involving the vacuum cleaner for years.
Well, since starting RP, I must admit, we have made a huge dent in this problem.
Previously, Oreo would bite, nip, bark, and lunge at the vacuum. It was very irritating. I tried pretty much everything.
When I shot this video, I thought for sure, I would get at least one shot of Oreo attacking the vacuum, but he didn't! So, now I can't prove how far we've come! Bummer. You'll just have to trust me, he was Kujo.
Not that Oreo was perfect in this video.
However, if Oreo can remain quiet, and not touch the vacuum hose with his teeth, I am thrilled. In the end, I don't care if he sits, lays down, stands, or walks around, I just want to clean and be done with it!
Anyway, watch what happens the minute I put down our magic mat!
I muted the vacuum sound, in case your dog has their own vacuum challenges. I say very little to Oreo during this video. Almost all of our communication is done through body language.
I think our next RP training may be 15 days of vacuum stuff. Maybe we can then rid Oreo's bad habits for good.
