I LOVE my shop vac :) Mine all turn into beggars when I drag it out. Takes a bit of desensitizing with the noise but once they've figured out it feels good, they love it. The only time I had an issue with it was with Woodstock, who's a big nosy butt and I had hung the hose on the stall front long enough to grab an attachment and he grabbed it and ended up with the hose stuck on his tongue.
I found a grooming attachment for it & an old round brush attachment from a regular house vac that fit & both work great too. I love using the brush on it for show prep stuff, gets all the fine loose dirt.
