Chances are, if you live with dogs, you have extensive opinions about vacuum cleaners, including whether the little runts are worth all the time you spend battling dog hair (of course they are). Good news: German appliance designers Miele have created a vacuum especially for dog-loving homes. The Miele Dog & Cat vacuum comes in both upright and canister models and features a 1200-watt low-noise motor and HEPA filter. Swivel-neck, suction control, electro-brush, and hose attachment features make it easy to get at all the surfaces, nooks, and crannies where dog hair likes to hide. And, for those (like me) who care about such things, it’s pretty. Check out each vacuum’s extensive bells and whistles at Miele.
