Why Are Dogs Scared of Vacuums? Dogs are often afraid of vacuums for a simple reason: They're loud and have a strange, confusing odor (remember that our dogs' primary sense is their sense of smell. ) ... Our dog's sense of hearing is also much more sensitive than ours, making loud noises a whole lot less tolerable.

One of the main reasons dogs are afraid of vacuums is the noise.

dogs have a keen sense of hearing, so if the vacuum seems loud to you, it is much worse for your dog.

Not only do vacuums produce a lot of noise, but they also produce high-frequency sounds that can frighten or annoy your dog.
