    Vacuum Cleaner Suggestions

    Hi all! I have 10+ dogs and was wondering if anyone could suggest a vacuum cleaner that would actually work for the pet hair and wouldn't break in a year. I've been doing some research but, most reviews are from people who have only owned the vacuum for 2 weeks or less.

    But the Dyson Animal is an excellent vacuum. I've had mine for a couple years now and it's wonderful.

    I would go with a shop vac if that was the case...

    I have 4 dogs in house with carpet and I had a rainbow (20yrs) and it was great . I just bought a Kirby...Dumb idea. The rainbow is a much better for animal hair.Plus it goes into water tank and not a stinking bag. I hate this kirby.I want another rainbow. Plus you don't have to tear the it apart to use attachments. jmo

    So if anyone wants to buy a Kirby let me know..
