Out of the much benefits of owning a dog, there are also quite a few drawbacks. Picking out their shed fur around the house is a nightmare, but you can’t stop the shedding and you can’t leave your house dirty.
Therefore the only thing you can do is pick up that vacuum and make your home shine, at least for a day.
First of all, you need to consider the type of coat your dog has – easily matted, curly, short, long etc. You can’t stop the shedding but you can minimize the pile-up of dog hair by grooming your dog regularly or taking it to a professional groomer.
Taking care of its diet and well-being will result in much healthier and stronger hair that sheds less frequently, except when it’s shedding season. Grooming should be performed on flooring that’s easy to clean or outdoors if you have a yard.
Here are some of our top picks when selecting a vacuum to clean up after your dog. While our blog’s mascot is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, these tips apply for any breed.
Best Car (Handheld) Vacuum for Dog Hair
They are easy to use and universally applicable. These types of vacuums are ideal to do a quick cleaning in the places where the dog spends most of his time. Of course, the car is another place where car vacuums will prove to be useful.
Since they don’t have such power or many brushes and attachments you can’t get rid of all the hair. If you have a long-haired breed of dog that massively sheds you will need a much more powerful vacuum to get the job done. When the dog is short-hair and sheds its fur less often, then handheld vacuums are a perfect choice.
Their price is really affordable so even if you have a specialized type of vacuum, you can always keep one like this as a quick substitute.
Two of our favorites are the BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Hand Handheld Cordless Vacuum and Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Handheld Vacuum, Corded.
Best Home Vacuums for Dog Hair
When we are talking about home vacuums we are thinking about hardwood floor vacuums which can be also used on upholstery and carpets. Aside from the car vacuums these are much more powerful and are equipped to be used in an efficient manner.
Again, it’s really easy to use them and you can get the job done quickly. They usually come with adjusting multiple action brushes that can lift and remove even the most stubborn pet hair, along with other dirt lying on the floor. Maybe they are a bit louder than car vacuums but your pet will get used to them I no time.
Pet owners can be at ease because nowadays the market is filled with vacuums specifically designed to deal with dog hair. Eliminating dog hair in your home has never been easier but you should anyways be careful as to what you need.
For example, you are buying Dyson Ball Animal 2, considered to be the best dog hair vacuum and soon enough you realize that the machine is taking up half of the space in your condo. In this manner, choosing the right vacuum should be according to space in your home and the amount of furniture that needs to be cleaned.
Brush and Vacuum
Yes, deshedding before hair spreads is a great idea. Brushing and eliminating all the hair at once is probably the best option when it comes to eliminating dog hair around the house. These products are still new on the market but many owners are very satisfied with the results.
