I have another suggestion (though @MFrey2012's advice is so much better, she already got you covered) maybe you can try to introduce the vacuum to Sgt.? Just let it lay around the livingroom without plugging it nor moving it. Give him treats everytime he sniffs it or goes near it without wanting to kill it. Do it several times a day everyday till he gets the hang of it being brought in and out of the room. Then when he's ok with it, you up the antic by plugging it and turning it on a few seconds or minutes. And then longer when he gets the hang of it. I dunno if this will work lol. But you atleast now have plan B .
    Thats a PERFECT WAY to start!!

    Thanks so much everyone. Last night Mike took Sgt. to the other side of the living room with treats and I was actually able to vacuum the small rug in front of our back door. It took about 12 minutes, but it's a step in the right direction! I honestly feel 1000% times better knowing that it's not just Sgt. that behaves this way! I knew it wasn't...but reassurance is a good thing! Y'all are the best!!

    You are so welcome!! - So HAPPY all our advice got you some relief, Sgt. is DEFINITELY not alone. Like you I am OCD about my floors being clean, and when I brought Ellie home she was NOT have anything to do with letting me clean them, especially since we have hard wood floors, and my typical routine was to sweep and then wipe them down, she would attack me/papertowls as I was working, I would break down and cry to hubby to that we HAD to do something, and THANKFULLY we had started taking her to puppy kindergarten, and got some great advice from our trainer how to help Ellie. ALSO dogs DON'T generalize, so when moving from room to room, and vacuum to swiffer, may be like 50 1st Dates, but he should catch on quickly.


    Thanks and much Love,

    My girl was like this... Lived to be 9 yrs old and my Dyson has battle scars from her.

    I had to lock her in a different room as i cleaned --- clean the kitchen, she was in bedroom, clean the bedroom she was in the loft--- moved her through the house as i cleaned as nothing we tried stopped her and i had to get the cleaning done so that worked for me
