Calling all dog owners

hoover junior

Yesterday my lovely hoover jnr. finally gave up the ghost.
Hans has doctored and nursed it for years, but this time its truly dead.
Today we borrowed a Fakir upright hoover from our trusted electrical shop, but this thing weighs 1 stone 8 lb. I couldnīt possibly push that around for 45 mins.
The hoover jnr weighs half that because it has a cotton bag not a solid body.
What do you people use to pick up the dogs hair?
In Germany they donīt have lovely warm carpets like we/you do in England, its a lot of tiles and wooden floors, carpet is just a floor covering no pile as such.
We do have an axminster look alike (no where near the quality) so I need an English type hoover preferably one with a soft bag.
Any ideaīs please

I'm Jan

We've got a Miele Complete C3 Cat and Dog. Expensive but damn good. We've always found Miele vacuums to be excellent quality and long lasting. We'd still have the last one if stepdaughter hadn't tried to hoover up the contents of the bath that she had overfilled! She thought it was a wet & dry! It wasn't!!!!

Infamy, infamy! They've all got it in for me!

Have you thought about GTec?

We have two at home in the UK, upstairs and downstairs and one in Spain, demonstrates how good we think they are. Copes with the hairs from our Cocker Spaniel very well. Daughter in law has a Giant Schnauzer, A Spinone and Sealyham and she doesn't have any issues either.

Nice and light as well.

Another vote for Miele.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

My mums Hoover Junior finally died after many repairs. It must have been 50 years old.
We then bought a Hoover bagless and hated it from day one.
It might be bag-less but has 5 filters that need cleaning every other use. I end up covered in dust and fuming.

We did then buy a 2,400 watt drag around just before they limited power to 1,400 watt. It's so powerful it lifts any carpet but really does the job well.
It's a H Koinig and probably made in Germany and might be phased out now.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of Ģ750,000. http://raynipper.com
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

There would be a few accidents and maybe broken bones if we were, this is a dogs house, they couldnīt chase a ball on a Germanic floor.
