I second that. And pick up a comb and groom the dogs first. After you vacuum, put baby in the stroller, leashes on the dogs, hand your wife a bottle of wine, some bubble bath and candles and give her an hour to herself.I suggest that you take over the vacuuming duties. With two shedding dogs, you'll need to vacuum several times a week, especially when the baby becomes more mobile.
It's great that it's working for you! My dog would go crazy trying to kill a robot vacuum! He's convinced the vacuum is a horrible monster deserving of chasing and barking.Thanks for the advice guys. I tried helping with the vacuuming but boy was that hard?!! I had no idea what my poor wife had to go through every time she carries that heavy hoover thing on the carpets... it's heavy and I tell you: inefficient!!!! it's just loud noise that pisses off the dogs and now the baby!!! anyways, I found an online deal from bobsweep (it's a robot vacuum) and they sent it to me last week. In comparison its wayyy quieter than the hoover and it moves around the house on its own which is great for my back! I asked them about the clogging problem before ordering and they said that I can overcome that with cleaning the brushes regularly so I bought two extra brushes to use alternatively and they sent an extra brush for free! so now i have 4 brushes to spare whenever the brush is dirty. I run it everyday before leaving the house and so far so good. Dogs seems to be fine around him: Arthur the playful one tries to chase him around the house but Damir the wise dog he is decided to ignore Bob (that's what I call the robot) from day one.
For the first time I let Auriel out while I vacuumed. She tried to attack it, and when it came near her, she peed. I about died laughing. I learned my lesson, crate the pup before vacuuming.It's great that it's working for you! My dog would go crazy trying to kill a robot vacuum!
