We've already called the Dyson DC31 Animal the best pet hand vac out there. Now they've announced a new attachment for Dyson full size uprights, designed to remove excess fur and skin. It's like a Flowbee for mutts!

The Dyson groom tool removes loose hair directly from your dog before it's shed around the home. Collected hair is then sucked straight into the vacuum. Mess free vacuum-assisted dog grooming.
Suction is split during grooming. Enough suction is directed to the dog's coat to capture loose hair and dead skin cells, without the tool sticking. When the thumb trigger is released, the bristles retract and full suction is transferred to the soleplate to hygienically suck captured hair into the vacuum.
Loose hair is removed by 364 slicker bristles angled at 35°. When pressure is applied, they flex to an upright position to penetrate the entire coat. Bristle length is controlled by a spring-loaded trigger. Adjusting thumb pressure extends or withdraws the slicker bristles. Different dog breeds require different bristle lengths – the longer the dog's hair, the longer the bristle length. When not in use, the bristles retract for safe storage.
The Dyson groom tool can be used with most Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums. It's suitable for long and medium haired dogs.
