Which vacuum cleaner is the best for pets hair?

Hi,

We have Bernese mountain dog and we have to vacuum a lot, because of hair she leaves behind her (we live in the apartment now, used to live in the house 2 years ago). So if anybody has an idea, please reply. Tnx

This is an american based site, so we wouldn't know what vacuum brands are available in Romania.

All my dogs had long hair and shed and all power vacuums pretty much cleaned the same, regardless of brands.

Sorry mate, I didn't fill About Me section
I'm from Sydney, currently traveling in Europe. I believe we all have similar brands. My wife is not with me and she's expecting that I can solve every issue, even remotely One nice bloke told me that the Rainbow cleaner should do the work. I just wanted to see if somebody has experience regarding this kind of stuff.

No pot of gold at the end of that rainbow maybe:

https://www.consumeraffairs.com/home...ow_vacuum.html First review almost seems to be written by a paid shill rest seem more honest.

Another better group of reviews but the price made me gag. https://www.consumeraffairs.com/home...ow_vacuum.html

Really what you want to know is not so much the ability of the vac to clean, they all do a great job, what we have found the most critical is how easy is it to clean the machine.

We have an older Eureka that uses the paper bags, other than the cost of the bags its simple to change. Our newer Eureka has the plastic container/bucket and two filters.

Not much ongoing cost but every week you have to dump it out and about once per month I have to take all the parts outside and use my compressor to blow out the dust.

I know the newer machine is cleaning more dirt but I cant imagine how someone would maintain this without a compressor and I'll bet many of the other brands are the same.

Rainbow in the States is overpriced hype IMO. It's more for allergy control of dander, mites, etc AFAIK anyway. The last test I saw done I believe it was Shark or Dyson that was the best at pet hair, though it wasn't the one advertised for pets in the case of the Dyson.

Many people have found that using a rubber pet hair "rake" will pull the hair up out of carpet and congregate it in stranded piles that are easily picked up by hand or with just the suction nozzle (not a power beater head). Brooms of similar design can be used on hard surface floors.

Beautiful dog by the way. Doesn't the warmer weather bother them down there? I was in Sydney years ago and it was quite mild compared to Northern Europe.

FWIW, I have a Hoover Revolution, didn't cost a lot, and does an excellent job of vacuuming dog hair.

Thank you all for your replays and for sharing your experience. I will deal with this issue when I return home. Jenny now insists on backpack vac., she saw one that looks like it was made by Darth Vader himself , I mean, just take a look at this "monster" *****, I have a feeling that if I buy this one the Stormtroopers will haunt me . At the end, I will buy her a broom

When I managed 3 barracks for the Navy, th backpack style were all our housekeepers used. I don't remember if it was by preference or because that's what the Civil Servant contract supervisor required. They did do a great job, but were for commercial use. Can't see them as necessary in a residential setting. Unless you REALLY want to look like the Rocketeer of course.
