How to Make Dog Hair Your...

    So I've now had Sachi two months (though holy .... it feels like I have had her as far back as memory spans) and right before I got her she went into heat (usual cue to have dogs do a full fur eject in my experience), got spayed (reason #2), shipped cross country and then learn a whole new person lifestyle (bringing us to reason #3 of stress).

    So, back on topic, she has been shedding since probably week 2 but not a full coat blow. Just some hairs here and there and feeling her coat now I am thinking it might be her guard hairs as she is pretty downy. That being said there is a light dusting of Sachi EVERYWHERE, and my vacuum just isn't up to the task.

    What vacuum brands and models are you using that just makes dog hair it's B..... I'm in dire need, price doesn't matter. Help Please!

    Sorry, free chance to spam.

  • Lots of people love their Dysons. I have never had one, but I suppose if price is no object, then go for that. I have 4 dogs and two cats and my Bissel Lift-Off Pet edition does Grrrr-eat! and picking up fur, and cost less than half of a dyson. The mini-vac tool that goes on the hose is terrible and always freezes up, but the big main foot works awesome, the filters are easy to get and replace, the dirt cup is easy to see if its full and easy to unclip and dump out. The rugs *feel* so much nicer after I vac. I have had it for 5 years, and had to replace the drive belt once, but it was easy to do.

    Cute Sachi spam, btw! :) She's so sleek!

    Agree with the above- if you can afford it, go with the Dyson. My vacuum works great and I will get another just like it when this one dies..... Eureka Power Plus. It was inexpensive and it works great. We have 5 dogs at the moment (1 of them is a foster) so my vacuum gets a real workout everyday LOL It has several attachments so I can get the hair that sneaks down by the baseboards and the hose extends enough to get into the corners behind crates/desk/etc. With all of that said, one day I will have a Dyson :)

  • I got my husband a dyson for his birthday first year we were married... I felt bad giving him a vacuume as a bday present... But to this day he LOVES it! We wouldn't trade it for anything!

    I was doing research between a dyson or a meile awhile ago. They're both top notch vacuums. It all depends on your preference: classic look or modern?

  • Dyson. I bought a refurb one on amazon year ago. It's fallen down the stairs I don't know how many times and so it's duct taped now, but it still works. Well. (I'm clumsy with stair vaccuming, apparently! That's why I do it so rarely!) I do think I need another one at some point--parts are starting to fall off because we've beaten it to death--but still keeps going. I'd be willing to try the Bissel though.

    My other thing, which is no help on the vacuum, but....no carpets. We have carpets upstairs, and they're pretty much shot due to dogs, and a couple of unfortunate washer floods, and I am NOT replacing them with carpets. I much prefer sweeping to vacuuming (downstairs we have brick floors). And also, furniture that dog hair doesn't stick to. ie. after awhile with multiple double-coated breeds, a leather sofa is not a luxury but a sanity saver. (next time I buy a car, I'm getting leather seats, too. Granted, this next time may never come, but I'm sticking to it as an ideal!)

    (I've heard that model doesn't matter so much, and most people with dysons don't think the "animal" model is any better than any other).

    @cdenney, it is 'Eureka- The Boss- Power Plus'

    I know it isn't fancy but it works great. We have AA's and any vacuum that will pick up that much hair day in and day out and still functions properly wins my vote hahaha It is lightweight and easy for me to carry up and down the stairs. But I still want a Dyson ;)

    Love my Dyson. I had the Dyson animal when my ex and I were together. When we split my mom gave me her baseline basic Dyson. It is beat up and held together with duct tape, but still gets the job done

    I use a Dyson and I won't ever buy a different brand. most vacuums seem to pick up about half of what a Dyson does.

    Yep, Dyson here too - we didn't upgrade to their "petfur" model 7 years ago when we bought ours and if I remember right the only difference was the price and 1 extra attachment. Everything else was the same - anywho... it's still going strong 7 years later and is what we use and love too!
    Oh, also the way Kitora shed was her undercoat first, then that came back in, while it was coming back in, then ALL her guard hair fell out - it was really WEIRD (I've never had a dog shed like that) and then while the guard hairs were growing back in she looked like a puffed poodle cotton ball that was perfectly manicured! It was HIlarious!!!

    I have a bissel pet model and it works really well. It has an attachment for the furniture that I use on a regular basis. I also have a kong brand "zoom groom" brush. It gets a ton of hair out and doesn't strip the coat because its made of rubber. When it comes time for my Shiba to blow her coat, I vacuum every day and brush her daily as well. I have always wanted a dyson, but they're so expensive!

    i love the zoom groom!!!

    Some people will say that the furminator is damaging to the coat. I personally don't use it for this reason, though, since never having used it, I can't say if it really is damaging. Nevertheless, I stay away from it and use the zoom groom.... and i love love love it!
  • I do have a furminator, have used it numerous times, and I do believe it is damaging. Also, because it cuts the fur, it doesn't actually help shedding. It seems to prolong the shedding process. Pulling out the loose fur (with a zoom groom, comb, slicker, deshedding blade, etc) works much better than cutting fur that would otherwise not be ready to come out...

    I only use the furminator on my American Akita, who has a short, soft coat already and doesn't need to be kept in show coat.

    I have used a furminator on my show dogs with no damage to the coats. It really is about how you hold it and the amount of pressure you put on it.

    @Cdenney, I have a furminator for work (groomer), and I don't recommend it to my customers. Sjp051993 has it right. It's all about technique and pressure. When i furminate any dog, I never go over the same spot twice and always follow up with a cat shedding comb and my zoom groom. The zoom groom is also a lot less expensive and works on all lengths of hair. I find that a lot of dogs don't like the furminator, but they love the zoom groom. I think it's like a massage for them. I do love the furminator conditioner, though. I lather it up with the shampoo and I get TONS of undercoat out.

    Our groomer (for the last 9.5 years) Furminates my shiba when he goes in for a bath and brush out--in our experience nothing else helps w/ the shedding but a good bath every 3-6 weeks. The only coat damage I've ever experience was w/ Advantage flea med, it seemed to burn his guard hair.

    She mentioned that Furminators don't work well on longer coat breeds so we only use a comb on our midget long coat JA pup to de-tangle and remove dead hair before matting.

    I have a dyson (not sure of the model). My only problem with it is that mine has too many filters on it. Between two dogs and a cat i have to take it completely apart and clean everything 'bout once a month or the air flow restriction light comes on. will definitely get a dyson again, just not the same model.

  • The thing I love most about the Dyson is how its emptied. With other vacuums, when you change the bag or dump it out, dust gets everywhere. My husband has some sensitivity to dust mites, and used to have flare ups and rashes every time we'd clean. It hasn't happened since we got the Dyson though! Just take the whole canister to the trash can, push the button, and all the dust goes in the trash -- no cloud of dust everywhere, no getting it on your skin changing the bag. Great!

    @rikumom, I had a serious problem with frontline on my cat. He got a hot spot from the meds and he still has a bald spot almost a year later. I had never heard of flea meds causing this before! What medicine do you use now? I use trifexis on my dogs, so im not up on recent breakthroughs with topicals and I was hoping there might be some other topical for both dog and cats that is for sensitive skin. My chi has sensitive skin and seizures, so I can't flea treat her at all. :(

    Since my fur kids are both indoor dogs, we skipped the flea meds for years and only use Heart Guard for heart worm. Now i use Revolution, which is alcohol based and works on both fleas & heartworm.

    We avoid anything that's given orally b/c the side effect on those just sound scary compared to the topical ones. I have never experienced hot spots with my fur kids so Im not sure if this experience helps you.
  • I love Meichan and Mochi's ears!
  • Oh, great thread and most welcome, I am just considering getting a new vacuum. Um, I admit I am rather lazy :D I am considering getting a robot dust cleaner, have any of you used it? Are they effective for Akita and cat hair ??

    My hubby had an iRobot that covered the downstairs area of an 800 sq ft loft when we met. He was dog/catless. The iRobot died shortly after my 22# shiba claimed territory of said loft on the wkends...
  • My dogs love the zoomgroom. To chew on.

    I like using it on them in the bath, but otherwise, I'm not thrilled with it, because it's not that great for really helping get out the hair when they are blowing their coats. Well, not for the thicker coated Shiba and Akita, anyway. I use shedding comb on them--I like it more than the furminator that I also have.

    good luck on the vacuum sniping on ebay!

    Not to bring this post back from the dead. I just ordered a Miele Jazz upright. When I first got Kaede I had a canister vac from them and loved it. The bag was just too small. When I moved in with my wife, she had a Dyson. It lasted her/I 10 years. The issue we have is that the canister is now old enough that it is leaking.

    I'll post a review of the Miele when it gets here.

    So, Dyson is 20% off everywhere as @ThreeFish231118 stated. You can also use Bed Bath and Beyond's 20% on top of that. If Bed Bath and Beyond won't let you combine deals, Best Buy will honor that discount with their price matching. My friend just bought the DC44 for $256 from Best Buy.

    I was going to buy a Dyson but read reviews that the Shark Rotator performs much better than a Dyson, especially for the significantly cheaper price point.

    My old Dyson is barely making it anymore: let's just say too many falls down the stairs, plus the fact that we once vaccummed up a lot of soot after cleaning the chimney. I mean, fair enough, the thing was a refurb when I bought it 8 years ago, but I do keep thinking about replacing it. I wonder if I should get the shark too? Lighter and cheaper sounds good!

    And will it work for two Shibas that shed constantly and occasionally blow up and a human with thick long hair that constantly sheds? :-D

    I concur - Dyson! It is heavier than all my old vacuums, but it really picks up EVERYTHING. Worth the investment. (Btw, I don't know if it's just my shiba, but some other owners tell me their dog stops shedding completely between seasons? Grayson doesn't. Yes, some days he has 'less' but definitely still sheds.)
    Also, I bought a manual sweeper broom (which is like a broom + dust pan in one), works wonders to pick up all the little drifting hair daily/in between vacuuming. Hasn't clogged yet!

    When we bought our house it came with two Kirby Vacuums. I didn't know what they were. When they didn't sell we gave them to a recycle guy.

    You can by them refurb for $150-200 and add a HEPA filter. Last you 20 years.

    @Sunyata

    I watched A LOT of reviews, and it seems that the Rotator has more positive reviews than the navigator. When matched up with the Dyson, they were equally powerful.. just much more cheaper.

    The dyson DOES look sooo much nicer though.

    @Zinja - Thanks! I am hoping to be moving to Northern Virginia by the end of the summer, so I will probably need to downsize quite a bit... I have a really awesome canister vacuum (Electrolux), but it is large and bulky. So something small, light, and powerful (especially since I will probably be moving to an apartment or town home with [gasp!] carpet) would be great!

    I have a Kirby. It is a monster. But if you think a Dyson is expensive...Let's just say buying a Kirby is more like buying a car. But what's nice is that it washes the carpets too.

    I'm not as crazy about the zoom groom as everyone else is. That being said, my pup hasn't blown his coat yet. When I brush him with the zoom groom it pulls fur off and into the air, it doesn't hold it. Is that how it's supposed to work?
  • shibamistressshibamistress

    I only use the zoom groom for bathing. Or I did. Leo got revenge on it after his bath the other day and the zoom groom is no more.

    It was not that great for regular brushing to my mind. I use an undercoat rake (like a furminator, but it doesn't cut the hair).

    Kirby's are crazy expensive and Kirby sales people are just flat out crazy. I would never buy one simple because I don't have the cash. I also have some questions regarding the sucking power of a bag vs just the little test filter they use.

    I loved my wife's dyson but at it got older, so did the seals and it became a dust factory. I think for us a bag is the best bet even though it is an added expense.

    I'll make sure to do a proper review of the miele when it gets here on monday. It has a HEPA filter but I ordered their Active Charcoal filter for pet duty and "that's a big duty" :)

    I have a Miele. Greatest vacuum I've ever owned. I would have considered a Kirby but did want to contend with the sales people or the $1600 price tag. I've gotten too many mixed reviews on Dysons to fork over the cash.

    I love my Miele so much and actually have an easier time breathing.

    Well, sadly my vacuum had to be replaced and although I loved it we decided it was time to upgrade to something that would likely last years so we went with the Dyson DC25 Animal. I LOVE this vacuum lol It's like magic. It is so easy to maneuver (it's a ball version), the hose is long and the suction on the hose... WOW! haha! It is easy to handle/carry and weighs about the same as my Eureka. It is a lot quieter and you can turn the rotating bar on/off to go from carpet to hardwood easily (just push a button). With all of this said and my love of this new vacuum I have to admit that we would not have purchased a Dyson if we hadn't found a great deal on one. We paid well under half the normal price for it so all around I am thrilled :)

    @cdenney, I just kept watching sales, craigslist (you can find new in box by dealer if you're patient), amazon (found several refurbished ones for around $200+/-) but eventually I found one at a local store that buys truckloads of Wal-mart overstock merchandise and they turn around and sell it in their store. All of it is new in box. I was so excited when I saw the ad :)

    That's super cool. I'm kind of jealous....I just noticed mine really may not be working anymore. I've been thinking that for about a year (and hey, it's old and abused!) but now it won't really suck anything up through the hose (though works ok if the hose is plugged into the full machine). So I think it's time.....Guess I need to watch too.

    I have a Bissel one that is supposed to be good for Pet Hair too, and comes with an attachment to help get hair that is sticking on things OFF...and I believe brand new it was around 135? I've had no problems with it...had it for about 4 years now...
