My 8 month old bulldog puppy is afraid of anything that rolls like strollers or the vacuum and I am afraid she is going to bite someone if she feels trapped. Is there anything I can do to ease her fears of this ?
both of my dogs dont like the vacuum cleaner either. I decided to just ignore them when using it and not rush at them with it. over time they dont run and hide now. they just make sure they are in a different room than me.
another thing you could do is go out and buy a training clicker. leave the vacuum out and when you see the dog approaching it click and give it a treat so that eventually the dog will associate the big scary thing with a positive thing;the treat.
