Hi All,

Dog hairs - don't they just get everywhere! It's a shame i can't send Bradley to the hair dressers for short back & sides! :lol: 8O

Anyway, upon our return to the UK inext month, i will become the proud owner of a new dog hair busting machine, a hoover. (The one we have now is fine for small rooms but not for a house, especially not with Brad being so hairy!)

Anyone got any good tips for hoovers, i know Dyson used to do a 'pet' hoover, especially to deal with lots of hair..

How do you all get on?

Cheers

Julie

I have the said Dyson pet hoover. I bought it not long after i got Bailey. The best purchase i have made - besides Bailey of course :wink:

The only thing i find with it is the embarrassment factor - i can't believe just how much it picks up every day!!! :oops:

Hi Julie

I would highly recommend the animal dyson I bought mine 2 years ago and it took me about a year & a trip to the dyson stand at Crufts for a demo to work out how the turbo attachment worked for the stairs but now I know how to use it it's fab.
Would never go for another hoover again. Before this one I had the hoover pets but this wasn't a patch on the dyson.
Only drawback I suppose is seeing all the fur in that see through container, but it did answer my life long question of what happens to spiders when you hoover them up!

I have a dyson too, we dont have many carpets, but if you get the hard floor one it picks up everything on the wooden floors too. couldnt go back to a hoover when i see what it sucks up from the floor with with two of them. Also it has the hepa filter so its good for allergies.

Hello Julie


I have a Dyson animal and in my opinion you just can't beat them.

How I ever managed before I got it I will never know :roll:

The only thing I don't have at the moment is one of those gizmos for hoovering the dog :lol: Sad I know but I bet you they are cool 8)

I dread the day coming when it needs to be repaired :( Anyone any ideas.

I had a dyson that was great for aout 2 years. When I first got it, the suction was so good that I found it difficult to push along!

2 years down the line and the suction is now rubbish. I have replaced the filters and cleaned out any blockages. I am disappointed after spending quite a lot of money.

The next vacuum I bought is a Morphy Richards Ultralight. It is about a third of the price of a dyson and came with a Turbo brush and is really light to carry around. It does not seem as robust as the dyson but at that price, who cares.

The only problem I have is that it is so light that sometimes when i use the hose stretched out, it can topple over. I have had a few whacks on the arm and back and head from it - I'm sure it is possessed :twisted:

I would swear by the LG Bagless cyclinda vacuum cleaner. There one around about £130. Its value for money and has a higher suction power than Dyson though does lose a bit of suction when the filter gets full. It does have HEPA filtration too. A lot cheaper than Dyson!

I have also recently purchased the PET VAX that is a two in one Wet / Dry Cleaner & Carpet Washer. It washes carpets fantastically and has a special turbo pet brush for pet hairs. In hindsight I could have just bought this alone but on the downside it is bagged. But good value for money and saves on getting the carpet cleaners in!

Our dyson recently broke - and we seeing as we dont have many carpets in the house - we went for a smaller one called the Allergy IQ which is for pets. It has no bag like the dyson, has a HEPA filter, and has a brilliant turbo head which is great on the carpets, sofas and even the car! It was only £90 whic his far cheaper than a Dyson.

We have a Dyson too, not the pet hair version, because we got it a couple of years ago just before they came out. We have all wooden/tiled floors downstairs and only carpets upstairs. It seems to do the trick wonderfully. Only thing is that Barney likes to play chase with the cleaner when you're doing the floor. He reverses around the house growling. Quite funny to watch. He has let us actually give him a brush with the fabric fitment which did bring off lots of the loose fur.

I'm sure that fur coats are going out of fashion for dogs at the moment because we seem to have a good thick layer on the floor every day! :lol: :lol:
