I bought this vacuum cleaner recently when I moved into my new apartment. I immediately saw interest in it when I noticed that it had a better suction to help clean up dog hair and dirt! When I first used it I was amazed to see how well it actually did pick up dog hair. With me having a chocolate lab I am always using this vacuum and am even more thankful that It has a canister vs bags! I also love that it has the little attachments to go along with it and that they work equally as good!
