Are Pet Vacuums Worth It?

Are Pet Vacuums Worth It?

Q: I have a beautiful Border Collie/German Shepherd rescue pup who is pretty much perfect... except she sheds like there is no tomorrow. After my grad school, thrift shop find of a vacuum recently died, I've been researching the best vacuum for pet owners. There are so many out there and I'm curious if vacuums marketed towards pet owners are really better than regular ones or if it's just a ploy to get more money out of you? Should I spend a little extra green on a "special pet" vacuum or should I go with a regular one? -Sent by Christianna

Editor: Christianna, thank you for including a photo of your beautiful, beautiful puppy. Sure, we could all try to answer a question about pet vacuums without a pretty puppy to gaze at, but what would even be the point? Readers, please share your insight and experience!
