Buy or borrow a chihuahua. I didn't realise this until some friends who own one discovered it, but chihuahuas were originally bred to be spider hounds. (They have some pretty scary spiders in Mexico, I suppose.)

This particular chihuahua, while usually being a typical bug-eyed rat-faced bundle of nervous twitches pretending to be a lapdog, turned into the ROTTWEILER FROM HELL every single time she saw a spider of any kind. There wasn't a spider left anywhere in the house the entire time they had this dog. They thought it was just her personal quirk, until the vet told them no, that's what chihuahuas DO.
