We have had a Dyson DC14 Animal for about 7 years. Love the thing. It does great on the hardwoods. For a quick pick up I like the little swiffer sweep & vac

Ha! Shop Vac . . . $50-$100 @ Walmart. They get into corners great and have exellent suction (they can suck up nails).

Just a daily go over with a broom and microfiber dust mop.

I was actually looking at those and thought "too good to be true" because it was so cheap.

The only other downside that I know of is that they do put some dust in the air since shop vacks are only really designed for cleaning worksites. They can be bad if you have a lot of allergies but if you are picking up GSD hair you will be getting rid of some allergens anyway by picking up the hair.

I would like to be as good as my dogs think I am.

They are loud, clunky, and blow dust all over the house! I did that before I went back to a "simpler" way. Cut our grass with a reel mower now too - better for the grass and just as fast as the power mower.

I have alot of hardwood and alot of rug as well, I hate using an upright that you take the hose off to do hardwoods, I don't know if any already mentioned are like this , but I like, a canister vac with a powerhead that pops off easy (as in using my foot to release it)..

I don't want to spend a kazillion bucks on a vac, but I admit, I do usually buy a new one every 3 -4 years or so ..I dunno, I've had different brands even electrolux which I HATE, and always go back to Sears Kenmore, usually costs me around 399 on sale, but I seem to have good luck with them
