This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned! I was intimidated by the thought of having to put it together, but in just two clicks I had a vacuum! The last vacuum cleaner I bought not only required a toolbox full of tools, it took over an hour to put together. I was impressed from the start. I have a one year old boxer and every other vacuum cleaner that I had tried never picked up the dog hair. This dyson not only got the dog hair off of the carpet, it picked up every piece of hair on my hardwood and ceramic floors as well! I actually enjoy using my dyson...and would recommend to anyone with pets!
