Can't make up my mind if this is cruel or bloody fantastic? Does anyone have one? Think I might get it for the dog for Christmas.

We brush our dogs with the soft brush attatchment and low setting on our Hetty hoover!

They love it and sit there falling asleep!

Our cat used to love being vacuumed. He would deliberately sit in the way of the brush from when he was quite small. We did turn the suction to ver low though grin.

My old dog wouldn't have minded it at all, and it would have been a brilliant tool for him. But my current dog would be scared and unhappy. I suppose it is fine so long as you are using it sensitively, only on dogs that are hoover-friendly.

I wish I could use it. It looks good.

Depends on the dog - mine would love it, but not all dogs would I'm sure.

Mum used to hoover our house dog. Springer Spaniel used to love having her ears sucked all the way up the pipe while she stood kicking her belly. grin

I hoover my dog!
I first tried it when I was getting all her hair off a chocolate coloured rug (bad buy when you have a super hairy blond dog!)she was laying on one end and refused to budge.
So I put the stair attachment on my dyson and went over her!
I was amazed at the amount of hair wizzing round inside afterwards. I do it as part of her grooming routine now. She loves it and stands there having her chest hoovered, with her head back and eyes half shut grin

My old dog wouldn't have liked it though. She used to slink off whenever the hoover appeared.
