Bissell 3920 Pet Hair Eraser

The original Bissell 3920 Pet Hair Eraser Dual-Cyclonic Upright Vacuum Cleaner ($150) [2] model is a fan favorite — Samson and co. included [3]. It has seven carpet height settings for all types of shag.

Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Canister

The new take on the popular Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum ($130) [4] brings this convenient shape to the model but with all the same features. including that wide pet TurboBrush with the rubbery fingers to attract pet hair off the stairs (just like I said [5]).

Dyson DC28 Animal

Dyson's most powerful beast, the Dyson DC28 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner ($650) [6] packs a punch with the brand's "root cyclone technology" and Airmuscle head that adjusts to any floor surface.

Dyson DC41 Animal

The latest agile cleaner from Dyson, the
Dyson DC41 Animal Ball Technology Upright Vacuum Cleaner ($600) [7] lets you zig and zag easily around corners, under tables, and across all surfaces — even hardwood.

Eureka Pet Expert

Is this vacuum expert at your home? The affordable Eureka Pet Expert Bagless Upright ($95) [8] holsters a Hair Raiser pet brush to sweep pet hair from upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics!

Eureka Suction Seal

Though not yet released, this sucker promises to be quite the . . . well, sucker! The Eureka AS1104A Suction Seal Pet Upright Vacuum ($180) [9] has all-surface suction plates that grab onto all surfaces and maximize air flow into the appliance. Look for it on May 30.

Kenmore Intuition

With its sleek silver exterior, the Kenmore Intuition Upright Vacuum ($320) [10] might not look like your average pet hair sucker. But the Pet Handi Mate attachment grabs pesky fur from furniture, stairs, or even drapes.

Miele S5281

Definitely coming in as a pricier choice, the Miele S5281 Calisto Canister with Heavy Duty Powerhead and Floorbrush ($899) [11] is reportedly so quiet you can hear the phone and doorbell . . . and probably won't stress out that scaredy cat [12] in the process.

Hoover UH60010

With an embedded DirtFinder, the Hoover UH60010 WindTunnel Bagless Self-Propelled Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Pet-Hair Tool ($310) [13] has a motorized brush roll for carpet and floor along with rotating brushes for upholstery and stairs.

Vorwerk Kobold

If you're overseas, or want to pay for shipping, this vacuum is a legend. The Vorwerk Kobold VK 136 [14] has a specially rotating brush and oh-so-much power, too.
