    What type of vacuum cleaner would you recommend for a household that has 2 or more dogs that shed?

    I have two Newfoundland dogs and I am forever sweeping and vacuuming. I bought a hoover bag-less vacuum and  am not all that satisfied with it. Am just wondering if anyone has a vacuum that they would highly recommend for pet owners.

    LOL I totally know how you feel.  I have 2 Belgian Malinois and vacuum constantly.  I love my Shark Navigator, This thing picks up hair like no tomorrow.

    This is a bit of a skewed answer BUT.....  We pulled out all of our carpets and put in a combo of linoleum and faux wood.. It is so easy to clean.  Also, linoleum (much better than the old kind your granny had) is naturally sustaining and germicidial.  It is used in hospitals for that reason.  Also, unlike vinyl tile, the pattern goes all the way through the linoleum so if it is scratched by pet claws it doesn't show!!!  Linoleum is good for twenty years plus too!
    Like  I said a bit of a skewed answer.  We only have a dust mop and a stick vacuum broom....oh, and I invested in a steam cleaner (home one.)

      We have hardwood floors with one area rug on the main floor but I prefer vacuuming rather than sweeping as I find it faster. I use the vacuum for the furniture as well.

      Wow, okay, all we think we need is a cheap electric stick broom now that we have gotten rid of the carpets.  I have throws on the furniture and just wash them.  I may be cheaper than you!  (LOL)

    We have a Dyson Pet Vacuum that is wonderful.  It really has a ton of suction, more than any vacuum I have had.  The downside is the small canister, so with a lot of dog hair, you empty it often but it is a small price to pay.

      When we bought the hoover I wanted the Dyson and wish I had of paid the extra to get one. The hoover has a very small canister too.

      I think the small canister must have to do with better suction.  ??? Maybe

    We lost our dog last year but have 2 cats. I have lung disease and asthma. We bought a Dyson with the pet feature and it is the best money we ever spent. I had no idea my old vacuum left that much dirt in the carpet.

    We have a BISSELL Cleanview Helix Upright.  We don't have two dogs, but we do have a long hair mix cat.  We had a similar Bissell before this one that lasted for 4 years with the same kitty.  This model does a great job picking UP the pet hair and not just getting it tangled in the brushes.

    Hands down the Dyson Animal is the winner!  The initial cost is high but it will pay for itself in convenience of use and POWER.  We have ten cats and two dogs so without it, I could never keep up.  We purchased a re-conditioned model for about two-hundred dollars less than new and have had it over five years now with the only complaint being a rubber gasket that falls off the tank.  I ordered a replacement online and we were good to go again.

      Now that's a lot of hair to pick up! Dyson seems to be the popular choice. Thanks.

      As I said, we have that vac two and just the 2 cats (1 long hair) will fill that canister in no time. It is my far the best vac I have ever owned.

    Kelly wrote a hub about the Shark vacuum. She might have some information for you. http://realhousewife.hubpages.com/hub/H … -the-Shark
    You might want to check  on it.

      Thanks Lela, Kelly has the shark floor steamer, but I think Shark makes a vacuum as well.

    Check out the Dyson Animal vac, it is reputed to be great for hair shedding dogs.  We have a Jack Russell that sheds 24/7 and my wife says she is getting a Dyson vac.

    Good Morning,
    We have a Pug that sheds like crazy. We have finally found our dream vacuum, it is a Shark Navigator. They advertise that no pet owner should be without it and I would strongly agree. We replaced a $450 dollar Dyson Ball with the Shark and it outperforms the Dyson, big time.
    Purchased ours at Costco for $159, I believe Wal Mart has it for about the same.
    It is one of the few products that makes me feel as though I got more than I paid for.
    You would not regret getting this vacuum for dog hair.

    Have you tried the Furminator grooming device to help decrease shedding? Someone on here wrote an excellent hub about it... i would check it out!

      The furminator is an awesome "brush" style thing, It helps clean out so much under coat!

      Yes I have a grooming tool from Germany that is similar to the furminator. They're newfs, they shed a lot smile

    We use a Eureka vacuum that is designed not to lose suction. We have all tiles floors in our house and it greats on that in addition to our couches and chairs.
