Default Best Vacuum for that Lovely GSD Hair?

Hugo isn't our first German Shepherd, however he is our first that is primarily inside at least 6 months out of the year. We are now out of the cute little non-shedding puppy months and into the adolescent-developing-a-full-black-coat-that-sheds-all-over-the-WHITE-couch, stairs, and house in general.
I knew what we were getting into with having Hugo inside most of the time, however my vacuum cleaner (a cheap little Hoover that has worked for just us in the past) just isn't up to the job of dealing with GSD shedding everyday inside.

Any recommendations for a really great working, easy to use, and long-life'd pet vacuum out there? We were looking at the:
"Boswell, Power Glide, Complete Pet",
"Bissell, Deep Clean, Premier Multisurface Pet",
"Dyson, Animal Total Clean", and the
"Eureka Airspeed Pet Upright Vac".

But ANY recommendations that have worked great for you or someone you know are welcome! I'm just a little OCD about a clean house AND a happy puppy--call me crazy, I know! TIA!

I've heard good things about the Shark Professional as well but have no experience with them. There is a thread or 5 floating around here somewhere.

One thing you might want to do before the vacuum would be to get some covers for your white furniture. Especially if they are dog hair magnets.

We'll, I have a GSD named Hugo too, so I know that my Dyson works well for Hugo hair.

I have the Dyson Animal and it's about 4 years old now and it's still going strong.

Very expensive, but good machine.
