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.

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
