Can you recommend a good vacuum cleaner for a house with a dog?

Our house is mainly carpeted, and we have a cat and a dog so we want a vacuum cleaner good for picking up hairs. Upright or cylindrical. Thanks!

I have gone though several hoovers ands one to avoid is the electolux pet as I have had 2 and when they get a bit too much hair in they cut out!!! I have now invested in a dyson and have no problems.

I have 2 dogs both with coats that are constanly shedding and a coat who leaves white hair all over the furniture and I have a dyson. It is magic. It gets all the hair out of the carpets and works really good on the furniture to.

We have a Morphy Richards Cyclonic Pets Bagless - 2000w vacuum (No.73362) after years with a Panasonic (don't ever get one of those!!). I truly don't know how I've lived for all these years without this wonderful piece of equipment. It wasn't cheap (and I didn't want a Dyson because for me they are too heavy) but it... More

I recommend a dyson animal even better if you use a turbo brush attachment on it
Answered By: Ann D - 8/23/2008
Dysons are brilliant! Although i don't own a dog, I have 2 cats and 2 children and i haven't come across anything it won't clean up! They are expensive but i got mine second hand and it still works fine, i think you get something like a 5 year guarentee but im not sure. They are well worth the money.

Kirby. Sucks up everything. Think about it if you buy a sweeper you buy it to suck up everything... unlike the dyson animal which is designed to suck up animal hair....what about dirt, people hair, glass, mud, sand, grit...himm nope just animal hair... check out a kirby. they are really exspensive tho.

We have a dog who molts by the bucket! We bought a regular hoover, but that clogged up within months so we went out and bought a dyson. And it works wonders! It picks up absolutely everything so I would definitely recommmend the dyson for picking up hairs!

sebo is a good make. we recently bought one and wouldn't go back. we have 3 long haired cats so for a dog they are brilliant. depending on the model they have extension leads for stairs and suction brushes. wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOPE THIS HELPS . . . .

You need to get a german Miele (pull along with bag) ---they do give the best suction and Miele do have a pet version........I've had dogs for 25 years and since buying the Miele I would rate it at the top of the tree.....upright bagless vacs are nowhere near as powerful with is a pain to have to replace...
