I really needed a good vacuum that had good suction and was easy to handle. I have at any given time 2-3 cardigan corgis in the house they are great dogs but they do shed. With that being said the first day I used my refub shark I emptied the canister 4 times it really picks up the hair that the old vacuum left behind. I use the pet hair attachment and baseboard attachment as well and they are great for the carpet as well as the tile flooring. I really love my Shark. Now if the dogs would only let me vacuum them lol. It's great.
