Do you know how much pet hair gathers on carpet, and in every nook and cranny with 4 dogs? No? I didn’t either. They are brushed weekly, sometimes a couple of times a week, and still the hair. It’s EVERYWHERE! All. The. Time!

They are also allowed wherever they want; they sit on the couch, sometimes sleep on the bed, they lay at my feet while I work, and run laps around the house playing chase and trying to catch balls.

It’s not hard to see why they drop so much fur, even after all of them have been clipped and brushed recently now that the weather is warmer.

And vacuuming was driving us insane especially the hair getting clogged around the rollers, and we’d end up smelling an awful burning smell after a while.

So when *I tried the Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® I went in having my doubts that this vacuum would fix all of our problems, but I was pleasantly surprised. Previously we were paying ridiculous prices for bags for our vacuum cleaner, cleaning the roller all of the time was ridiculous, and we didn’t have attachments to get rid of the pet hair on the furniture.

The dogs are most pleased with our new vacuum cleaner too, it’s much quieter than our last one, but still provides great entertainment.

They can still bark at it.

And play hide ‘n seek from it.

There is never a single moment of peace and quiet when the vacuum is running, you are constantly surrounded by shedding, barking dogs.

They are just lucky they are so darn cute.

And, the Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® is lightweight, so the kids will have no trouble pushing it around either. Now maybe we can convince them to do it once in a while.

And, best of all, no more hair tangles thanks to the self-cleaning brushroll.

This vacuum is much needed in my house, I have a cat that sheds more than a dog. Love the self cleaning roller, what a dream! There is nothing like a freshly vacuumed home. You dogs are so cute!

I just love your dogs! So adorable. Now we have 3 cats, and the hair is horrid, I tend to think dogs shed more so I can only imagine the workout your vacuum gets. Very impressed and happy it has worked so well for you! #client

Nice not to have to buy vacuum bags – big expense when you’re dealing with a lot of hair!!

Oh so need this in our household. We just quit fostering small rescue dogs earlier in the year (almost 5 years & 65 + fosters) and are down to our own 4 dogs – all medium to long hair. Add to that my 9 year old son and garden areas and our tile floors are a mess of doggie hair tumbleweeds, leave pieces, and sand/dirt. We’ve given so many vacuums nervous breakdowns it isn’t funny. Our last 1 just died and I just can’t justify spending a lot of money for certain name brands who have mixed reviews about keeping up with animal hair. Would love to give this a try and put away the broom and dust pan.

I had no idea this existed! I’m so tired of vacuums that tangle with hair. Even the expensive one’s! Good job!

I would love this vacuum with a cat and a black lab in our home that sheds like crazy, this would be great! Love that it has the self cleaning roller. I hate having to cut and pull the hair from our vacuum. The self winding cord is a great feature too! 🙂

I just finished vacuuming up the hair of our 4 pugs. Nothing on earth sheds as bad as a pug! While I was vacuuming both wheels fell of my vacuum, at the same time! Got them to hold on until I finished, but it is clear I NEED a new vacuum. My next vacuum must take care of pet hair! I did not have 4 pugs when I bought this vacuum. It is not up to the task!

I have 2 dogs and they shed like crazy. It gets my frustrated when I get back from work and see pet hair spread all around. I am going to get this Eureka I think.
