Shark/Ninja products have always appealed to me due to the features and price to performance ratio. We decided to go with the Pet Perfect to tackle the cat & dog hair around the house. The test videos I watched all had the Shark coming out on top. I couldn't agree more that the Pet Perfect has the strongest suction and the best truly motorized brush out there. We love ours and have used it a lot since receiving it. It'll be what I recommend to any pet owner or anyone looking for a small "dust buster" kind of hand vac.
