A little background:
We have a German Shepherd mix puppy who's over 6 months old now. She's a destructive little terror since it's been too cold outside to let her out during the day. I also have a wonderful Dyson slim that has never given me a problem and has been the best vacuum I've ever owned. One day when the dog was feeling particularly destructive and searching for something to chew, she found the vacuum. I had left it out because I was waiting for the carpet to finish drying after steam cleaning it so I could do the final pass with the vacuum. She chewed through the cord and took the plug. The plug was beyond help otherwise I could have reattached it with a little wiring fix and patching.
My question is, since this has been such a good vacuum, would it be worth taking it to a shop for a new cord or would that cost as much as just replacing the vacuum? Keep in mind this was a $600+ Dyson. The best price I can find on this same model is at Costco and it's still out of my price range. I can get a new vacuum for around $150, but it would be exactly that, a cheap vacuum with no guarantee of quality.
