Have you had your vacuum cleaner for more than 2 years? Do you have a pet? If so, can you tell me what it is please?

I mean, tell me what your vacuum cleaner is...not your pet!
I think my Vax Air Pet has just died. angry I have had it less than 3 years but it just seems to have lost suction.

I only had the vacuum cleaner before then for a couple of years too and I am starting to get seriously pissed off!

Can someone please recommend me a bomb-proof vacuum that can cope with pet hair (I have a beautiful ginger cat!), can effectively clean stairs and will actually last a while?! angry

I have a cat and 2 gerbils, and I use a hetty hoover. No complaints!

I have 3 cats and a Dyson DC32 Animal. Got it in 2011 and it has just started to lose suction. I liked it but hate getting it in and out of where I have to store it so I was going to try a Dyson cordless V10 Absolute next. Watching to see if any MNers have a good recommendation!

Dyson upright here and two cats (one longish haired). Been going for 10 years.

I have cats, and have the Miele Cats & Dogs. . . I liked it so much in NZ, I got the exact some one when we came over here. My one in NZ had lasted a good three or four years.

Dyson DC40 animal here, 5 years old and still going. We have a constantly shedding moggy.

Dyson Animal - The purple one with the ball axel thingy.
I got it four years ago after my Vax Pet one died out of the blue. I’ve had to have one spare part for the filter sent out for my Dyson in those 4 years, and that was my fault because I dropped it and it cracked while I was cleaning it

Miele cat and dog.

Miele cat and dog. About 12 years old and still going strong!

Miele Cat and Dog is brilliant.

Miele cat and dog... two very hairy terriers and going strong after 7 years

Miele Cat and Dog - must be at least 10 years old now and still going strong. So much better than the cordless...

2 cats here and we've got a Shark Duo Clean. Amazing hoover.

Ive got a cocker that sheds a lot and have a dyson, not the ball one just a normal upright. Its years old...

lpchill Fri 12-Jul-19 18:17:18

Cat, dog and toddler. Two bed mid terrace so I'm hoovering at least every other day. Had the shark duo for over 3 years now. I am disgusted about the amount of stuff it pulls out of the carpet every time I hoover. Love my hoover though

We've had our Miele cat and dog for well over a decade and it still works perfectly.

wonkylegs Fri 12-Jul-19 18:24:42

Miele - it's now 11yo and has had a replacement hose recently but the vacuum itself is still going strong

PinPon Fri 12-Jul-19 18:25:03

Miele Cat & Dog here too. Over 10 years old.

Nottobesoldseparately Fri 12-Jul-19 18:28:24

Gtech air ram.
Very hairy Labrador.
Over 3 years old now.
I also got the hand held one which works reasonably well on the boot of the car too.
Before that I had a Hoover, specifically for pets. It was shit.

Exactly the same here.

Dyson dc40 upright here. Had it 4 years, the brush bar unit died a couple of months ago but as was under Dyson's 5 year warranty they came out and replaced it for free. We have 2 cats and a 3 year old so lots of bitty floors

GoldPaperStars Fri 12-Jul-19 18:32:26

Another Miele here. It’s bloody brilliant.

We also have a Dyson hand held for quick inbetween big clean hoovers, but the suction is nothing compared to the Miele.

Vax power pet 2. It's absolutely terrible

MoobaaMoobaa Fri 12-Jul-19 18:34:56

cat, dog, degu's, straw and hay from the stables.

My vacuum cleaner is a Kirby, it's 25 years old. it's a monster the beater and suck on it is amazing.

I bought it secondhand 5 years ago for £60 after going through a multitude of new Hoover's, dysons, Henry's and others.

We have a herd of Wildebeest that frequent the patio. We use a Municipal Wolters Roadsweeper unit adapted to fit on a Mercedes flat bed truck.
