The place I'm moving to has sculptured carpet. I'm guessing it traps pet hair very easily & our dog Riley(a Brittany Spaniel mix) sheds a lot. Any suggestions? Thank you!

I have a 12 year old Riccar and newish Meile. LOVE them both. I don't care what anyone says. I HATE the Dysons. and I don't know anyone who has had one last more than a couple years. I can take mine to the dealer for any problems (have not had any at all....I keep the old one upstairs)

US! We had our last Dyson for 6 years.. 6 Years of vacuuming up after 4 dogs! We bought another one this year with our airline miles. The old one, still works well, but has been sent to the garage for cleaning the car and truck.

I have a Dyson as well and I love it. I have 2 long haired dogs that shed a lot as well as a cat. I vacuum 2-3 times a week and have had no problem.

Mine is a Simplicity. I love that it has double filters, all my old ones kicked up as much dust as they sucked up, on this one it all goes into the bag! It has a super long cord and a light that tells you when the bag is full.

I have a dyson animal vacuum. It gets lots of use as our lab sheds a bunch.

It lasted for years until one day I broke it. A chain from the old furnace got caught in it. I pulled it out while the roller was still going, instead of turning of the vacum or the roller off first. I was pulling in the different direction then the roller was going. The furnace chain and I won out over the vacuum roller.

It was easy to fix though. I just ordered the part to fix it. it arrived and snapped right into place. Actual fix time less than 5 mins (plus delivery time of of course) I did not have to take it in anywhere and did not have to pay for labor.

So she ( the vacuum) is still going strong and doing a great job.

I love my dyson animal vacuum

The dyson we have was bought at Target with a bonus hand held dyson for free.

We bought a factory refurbished Dyson off amazon a little over a year ago and I love it! I have two dogs that shed - one that sheds skin as much as he sheds hair and two little boys. My Dyson gets a workout! One boy has severe allergies. He's the reason we got the Dyson and it's helped him tremendously!

Bought a hoover, with the cat it gets really hairy here. Bought it on the hoover site. It is refurbished and works great.

We've been a Hoover family for eons...my mom was able to always get industrial/commercial Hoovers and they were awesome! We also had one Kenmore (Sears) canister vac that lasted forever and was great as well. Not sure how stuff is now b/c this seems to be a disposable society.

DH bought me this Dyson and I admit, I love it. Totally love it. Doesn't replace a proper vac but it does help me keep up with daily/every other day type vacuuming. I too, doubted Dyson thinking it was all marketing but its surpassed my love of Hoover. :shhh: Though I'm not sure how the regular Dyson upright/canisters perform.

Thanks! It's been a while since I've had to buy a vac, I'm in sticker shock. :thud:

Bed Bath and Beyond let's you use their 20% off coupons on the Dysons there. I bought a better Dyson because I got $100 off with the coupon.

Had a Dyson 5 or so years, it worked well, the issue was all the little plastic parts kept breaking off! We bought a Shark Navigator last summer or so, LOVE it. A fraction of the price of a comparable Dyson, does the same or even possibly better cleaning job, but it much easier to manuever and use, lighter too. So far no durablilty issues! Stands up to our household with 2 kids, 2 cats, 6 dogs....and a dirt drive. Did I mention I vacuum the main living areas EVERY day?!

We just bought a Dyson last year (the purple one) and really like it so far. We had a Kirby before which is still sitting in the garage and needs to go to the repair shop to see what needs to be fixed.

I have a kirby. I've had it for years. I love it. Bought my first one in 1973 and have owed one ever since. I did have to replace the tines inside where you hook the attachments to, I vaccumed up a quarter and it broke one of the tines. The part was less than $10.00.

I need to replace the brush in the floor attacment, its $25.00, so parts are cheap.
Sometimes you can pick up a repo or reburbished one from the dealer for pretty cheap. I don't think I would pay the price of a new one.

I have the cats inside and have never had a problem picking up cat hair.
