I have 8 dogs and foster for shelters, so a vac billed as a pet lover's vac is of interest to me. But not sure what makes this a pet lover's vac, except for a mini power brush attachment. Except the spinning brush in that attachment is driven by the air...so is useless if you apply any pressure, it just stops. Also dislike that the cord is not retractable, and that the hose is cheap plastic and the metal floor wand keeps slipping out of the hose. Suction is decent for now, but overall I have seen MUCH better units...including the older Eureka model that this one replaced. They don't make 'em like they used to, but they are never afraid to charge more for less.
