My H and I have two dogs and a cat living under one roof. I had a dog previously, he had a cat, and together we recently got a new dog. I love my dogs more than anything, they're my babies, but the shedding is terrible!!! Everytime I turn around I'm vaccuming or sweeping/swiffering. I feel like this is all I do!
When we bought our house, we knew we wanted to replace the carpets, and since we both prefer hardwood we decided to put laminate down in mostly our entire house. (the flooring men talked us into laminate since we have a 120 lb english mastiff pup running rampant and hardwood can scratch). I love my floors, but the laminate is a darker color and every single hair shows. It drives me nuts. Our mastiff literally walks through the room and you can see the baby hairs flying off her coat (literally- shes a HUGE shedder and she's only going to get bigger). I recently bought the swiffer sweeper vac, and although its better than the original swiffer, it still doesn't do the job. I stumbled across reviews for the dyson animal and of course they're all positive. Ppl act like this is a miracle vacuum, and now I'm adamant about getting one! My H doesn't think it's worth dropping 500 or so dollars (he's not the one swiffering 8 times a day!) and I honestly do agree with him. That's a lot of money for a vacuum, and we don't have it just lying around.
So I guess my question is, does anyone have experience with this particular dyson, particularly someone with hard wood floors and shedding animals? Is it worth the splurge? Ive asked personal friends, who all have receieved it as a gift, and though they love it said they probably wouldn't have bought it on their own. I signed up for OT recently at work, and jokingly told my H it's for my new dyson (I'm actually kind of serious ).
Thanks in advance!
