Dog hair and lots of it.
I have a Yellow Lab who sheds a dog a week. Keeping up with her hair production is an ongoing battle. I brush her every few days with a shedding blade and it helps but only a little.
I am in need of a new vacuum, the current inexpensive model (Eureka Altima) has reached the end of its utility. It just won't suck the hair out of the carpet anymore. I'd rather not spend more than about 200.00. Any ideas for vacuums? I've thought about shaving the dog!
