In 18 years, we've burned through every vaccum out there, inckuding an Oreck and a Dyson. We've always had mutlpile dogs and a lage, long haird, furry mess of a cat and I've never had a vaccum live longer than a year.

I finally bit the bullet and bought a darn Kirby. I LOVE IT!!!

We have the dyson animal ball and I love it. I don't find it to be any heavier than any other upright. I don't have stairs so that is not a problem for me. I also don't find emptying it to be messy. You can get a good deal on them at khols and also qvc.

I have 3 cats and one of them is a long hair with OCD who pulls out her fur if she gets upset and I have a Bissel that I bought at Walmart. It has been the BEST vaccum I ever owned. I initially made the purchase because I needed a quick inexpensive repalcement for my Kenmore and ended up getting the best vaccum ever. Infact when my MIL was downsizing and went to a small aparment we got her one because it is so light weight and did such a good job, she commented that it was much better then the expensive vaccum that she had been using. When my daughter moved into her own place we got her one as well and it's help up to her Dog and 3 cats.
It shows out of stock on line but they always have them in the stores- sometimes a little more money but still worth it.

I should also mention it is bagless and has a HEPA filter.

I worked for dyson so I have some advise when buying a dyson whichever model you decide to purchase all dyons models in each category(dc14 dc 22 etc.) have the same suction what makes the difference in the name such as animal is the accessories not the vacuum so if you want to save some money buy the standard dyson (yellow)with limited accessories

We had a Newfoundland and we were replacing vacuum cleaners almost every year (Hoover, Shark, Kenmore...). We finally switched to an Oreck and have been using this one for 6 years. It's nice because they clean it every year and replace any worn parts for free. We now have a Leonberger puppy so I'm sure it will get the same abuse!

Up until last month I would have said Dyson, but them my 3 year old Dyson started having issues & we found that they hoses us the handle are all cracked through. I rarely use the attachments so there is no reason for it to crack like that. I'd say Miele now.

We have two of the hairiest golden retrievers on the face of the earth and the only vacuum that works for us on our carpets is our Kirby. It was expensive, but not compared to the parade of cheap to moderate vacuums we bought before finding the only one that works for our dog hair. It also came with the dry foam shampooer which we use once a week since it isn't just the dog hair, but the oils from their bodies which can put down a layer of grime on the carpet.

I have a Bissell Powerforce that was about $40 at Walmart - according to the Bissell website they are sold exclusively at Walmart. It is a bagged vacuum cleaner and I love it. I have a long-haired dog and it does a really good job of picking up the pet hair. I also clean new homes for a company that builds new homes and I use the same vacuum in their million dollar "show homes". GREAT at picking up lint/strings off of even a black carpet.
