Well, I like my Dyson Animal, I don't remember what model it is but it is NOT the ball kind, The ball type don't work as well from what I have seen. Anyway it comes with special attachment heads for furniture that really pick up dog and cat hair.

All I can tell you is on a weekly basis I pick up enough fur to make a nice 20 pound dog. I have days on canister.

I purchased a Shark Rotator at Bed, Bath & Beyond a few months ago. It was priced at $250 with $100 off (promo) + my 20% off BB&B coupon. It is AMAZING for pet hair! We have a domestic medium hair cat and an Australian Shepard that go in and out of the house all day. My Roomba is great on the hardwoods but doesn't touch the pet hair on the rugs throughout the house. I vacuum those 5 or 6 days a week and I'm not sure if I'm amazed or disgusted every time I empty the bin (which is every time after I vacuum). I highly recommend this vacuum for pet hair and you can't beat the price and BB&B's return policy. Just hang onto your receipt and they will take it back at ANY time, no questions asked. I liked this vacuum so much that I bought one for our daughter's family that also has a dog and cat. She loves it as much as I do. Hope this helps you! http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=40446653&RN=914&;

DYSON ANIMAL. I have two cats and a dog. I tried the Shark and Sears vacuums. NOTHING compares to the pet hair a DYSON ANIMAL picks up. Someone had to twist my arm to try one. I was amazed at the pet hair it picked up. Even the day after I had my carpets cleaned, the Dyson picked up more pet hair. Try it. You'll never try any other brand.

The Rainbow machine. It's not a vacuum, but it's water based, which means it doesn't have a bag that can get clogged up eventually. It's also expensive, but it can last a lifetime if you treat it well. :) check it out at this link if you want. www.rainbowsystem.com

Some reasonably priced vacuums are Eureka HEPA ones that have a couple of filters and target pet hair. Dysons are expensive. I don't know exact models. But you can search them on Internet. I have one and it does a good job.

The Kirby Sentria is the most impressive vac for picking up pet hair I've ever seen. I thought my floors were clean until I saw this vac in action! A door to door salesman vacuumed my floor the day after I had and picked up a TON of pet hair-and I was watching to see if it was a scam. We have four cats and a dog and we NEED powerful suction, and this thing will suck the color off paint! The downside: it's noisy, expensive, and it's not very simple to use attachments( you have to remove the head of the vacuum to attach them). However, if you have multiple pets, it IS worth it to remove pet hair! Also, I'll be including this vac in my will! One more word of advice: DON'T pay the asking price! The more I told the salesman I couldn't afford the vac, the lower the price dropped. I ended up paying about half the asking price. Do some research online so you know what your bottom line should be, and then don't hesitate to buy!

I have had as many as 10 cats at one time. I own two Miele canister vacs. I bought one and loved it and bough a second one so I don't have to haul it up and down the stairs.

Here is a topic that talks about the poor quality of the Dyson. https://www.twopeasinabucket.com/mb.asp?cmd=display&forum_id=15&thread_id=3169529

There are lots of vacuum cleaner for pet hair. Let me tell you what type of vacuum cleaner I would buy (and resonable priced):

- Hoover WindTunnel T-Series (this one is only $120-130). Lots of options, nice for pet hair.
- Dyson Animal Vacuum(best vacuum for pet hair, around $250-$600), yet perfect for pet hair.
- You can also try a Black & Decker Dustbuster Vac. The price is around $40, yet perfect to clean your couch, car or even hardwood floors.

You can find more reviews here: http://vacuumforpethairguide.com/ and http://www.amazon.com
I also recommend using/reading Amazon reviews and watching Youtube videos for related vacuum cleaners you are about to buy. It helps!

Depends on how much you are willing to pay. I had a Kirby vacuum and it did wonders! It comes with attachments so you can shampoo your carpet, vacuum hardwood, stairs, and carpets!

I don't know about you, but wouldn't it just be easier to keep your pets outdoors. They are animals, I'm sure they can cope being in their natural environment. Your house will be a lot cleaner. True story.

I bought the Eureka Boss Smart-Vac. It is heavy-duty and comes with a special attachment for pet hair. I love it, here's why:

1. It is so powerful it could suck up a mouse
2. Pet hair does not clog it
3. It has a sealed HEPA filter so that the dust doesn't go back into the house

I bought it after reading this woman's insanely detailed review of the Eureka Boss here: http://springcleaningguide.com/eureka-boss-smart-vacuum-cleaner-review/
