Even though I like the bagless my sinuses did not they flared up with all that dust instant sinus headache. The Miele is still going strong! The bags are thick they remind me of diapers I get them on amazon. Just have to plan ahead. Great vacume it gets a work out for sure.

Every time I see the word Roomba I laugh. Hysterically.

Lol! Yeah funny story and also I believe max broke my roomba carry it around and dropping it I can’t be sure though it was old but not used often. They are expensive. It’s very heavy I was more afraid he would crack or chip a tooth though. Just make sure your dogs/ pup leave it alone.

Shark people here, too!
Still going strong after 3 years.
During Coat Blow, the canister is stuffed full of fur after one vacuum session...but they designed it to be easy to empty out, at least.
The biggest help I found is grooming the dog and putting all those big tufts into the trash! Seems to reduce fur around the house by 70% or more.

(I don't care so much about fur actually...
if I see a floating tuft, I think, "well, there goes a little piece of Rumo blowing by." :-)

@Pan_GSD,

Ha! I just checked your very first post, and yes, I hope that in the time since November 2017, you have found a vacuum!
So what did you wind up getting?
Is your fur situation under control? :-)

LOL

i mean the fur situation is still very existant !!
i've had shower clogs after the post, and have to routinely vaccum the house.
i am worried about washing my beddings in the washing machine because my dog can sleep anywhere he likes, and that includes my bed, and there's ALOT of trapped dog hair everywhere...

anyways, i ended up with a Shark, because that's what most people recommended.
i remember spending a big above $100, bought it in person at a local target, don't remember the model though.

i mean suction is strong, but i have to still be careful not to clog up the opening.

She is gorgeous!
Glad the Shark is working...
vacuuming just becomes a part of one's life...and one accepts the furballs that collect under things...can't get too obsessive :-)

You are brave to let her into your bed, I know some people just lay a sheet on top of their bed and let dog on TOP of it. :-)
( Our dog isn't allowed on furniture, but he has two XL orthopedic memory foam dog beds so he still is a bit pampered.)

I have been following this thread since it began, and until today have been undecided as to whether I should post or not, but here goes...

I am forever reading/hearing about how GSD owners need to buy a Dyson or a Shark, or whatever other pricey vacuum that can stand up to our mountains of dog hair. Well, back in 2008 when we first moved to Newfoundland we bought a basic cheap Eureka (bagless upright) at Walmart for the princely sum of $58, ($43US) and we just replaced it this week. That el-cheapo vacuum was used daily for 11 years without so much as the slightest hiccup... original belt even... and it handled Sheba's hair for almost 20 months, and Chrissy's for the entire 11 years! It was quite obviously more than reliable enough, and had tons of suction. Anyway, we just bought a new vacuum, a Bissell this time, (as they had no Eurekas in stock) for a whole $90, ($67US) which will hopefully perform as well, and for as long, as our old Eureka did.

So call me crazy, but I highly doubt that I could ever be convinced into believing that a ridiculously expensive Dyson is a necessity for a GSD household. That old Eureka ended up costing us a whole $5.27/year ($3.90US/year) and we have always had the cleanest house in town!

Sorry, but it had to be said!
