Last Christmas my husband bought me an upper end pet vacuum. I wanted a Dyson but he didn't want to spend the money so he bought another brand that was slightly less expensive. Needless to say it only lasted about a year when we started having problems. He finally broke down and let me buy the Dyson DC41 Animal. The suction is incredible. Prior to using my new Dyson I vacuumed one room with my old vacuum then I vacuumed over the same area with the Dyson. The Dyson canister was full from one room and that was after I "vacuumed" with my old vacuum first. Bottom line- if you think you have been getting all the dirt and pet hair out of your carpet using a vacuum that is not Dyson you are not. I had been told by several people how great they were but I really had to see it for myself. Don't let the more expensive price sway you from getting this vacuum and buying a cheaper brand. It is totally worth the money and if you look around you can find a good deal. I bought mine on overstock.com refurbished and it looked brand new and was half the price of a new one. It is also really light and the front part is really low so you can get under furniture.
