    I have a roomba, and never use it.  It’s more of a pain than help.  It pushes stuff all over the place and get’s stuck and I just don’t feel it’s through enough.  I could do the same thing it does in like 5 minutes.

    I’m assuming you have carpet since you’re looking for a vacuum, right? 

    In the event that you have hardwood – we have the Mint and love it. It’s less of a vacuum and more like a wet swiffer that goes around the house and picks up dirt. 

    Takes care of our husky/wolf pup’s sheddy fur wonderfully!

    I really wanted a Roomba!  We have hardwood floors and my dog’s fur is just single furs (opposed to fluff balls like a husky). 

     

    Commeting to follow!

    Robot vacs are good for anything BUT pet hair.  Sorry, but it’s true.

    Doesn’t matter how expensive it is, fact is they can only hold so much..so you’d have to keep changing it anyways! Plus, it’s super hard to pick up coarse hair even with a REGULAR vac.

    I would consider ripping up the carpet, if you have any…and maybe keep the dogs in one specific area of the house, which I know sounds harsh/hard to do!

    @MrsNerdy:  We have (I’m pretty sure) Roomba 650. The technology is based off of the pet series, and it works amazing. We have 2 long haired shedding cats, and a Corgi. We set it to go off daily at 7:00am, and normally I don’t need to follow up. We’ve been using it for around a year now, clean it at least once per week, and absolutelly love it! 🙂

    After reading other comments, we have all tile, and hardwood where we use the roomba, and occasionally use it on our carpet.  I had a hard time keeping the hair off of the hardwood before we got it. We also have 2 sets of friends who bought the same one after seeing ours, one uses carpet, and one uses a mix of both carpet and hardwood. We all swear by it.

    @MrsNerdy:  
    He doesn’t hate it…. He’s actually maybe a little scared of it? When we first got it Archie would follow it around sniffing it…. and now he just avoids where it is, and occasionally he will be sitting in the kitchen watching us cook, and get hit by it! When that happens he just moves out of the way, slightly annoyed! Haha.
