    Well we just bought some new bags for the Miele Cat and Dog on {shhh don't tell Cathryn } - they are much better than the Miele own brand ones!!

    I had to turn the suction down as it was lifting the carpet

    They are fabric with a plastic docking system, and fit really well

    They also do spares for most makes - appears to be a traditional shop who now also sell on E-bay.

    The best thing we've discovered for removing this hair is a pair of long handled, angled toe nail scissors

    You can get these are most pharmacies too - they are excellent for lifting and cutting the hair.

    Ok, this is an old thread on the Dyson Animal. Do you all still love it? I have been looking at this for awhile. I finally had to duct tape the front of my old vacuum because the rubber is coming loose. It is eventually time to get a new one. The price is hard for me to swallow, but if it lasts than maybe I will not feel too bad.

    So, for those of you that still have the Dyson Animal. How is it holding up?

    I don't own a Dyson, but the Consumer Reports magazine information (based on subscribers' answers to their annual survey) lists Dyson as having the least amount of repairs after Kirby uprights and Rainbow cannisters. If Dyson made a model with disposable bags, I might give it a try. I don't want to inhale all the dust when cleaning out a plastic bin. My dust allergies are horrendous.

    The dust pretty much just goes into the bin if you hold the container inside and thump it out. I found I got a lot more dust around handling bags and removing them from the regular style cleaner. I've a dust allergy too but not a horrendous one.. I was worried that dust would drift around but it doesn't. maybe because the dog and cat hair binds it all together...

    I've had my main Dyson Animal for several years, never needed a repair or replacement. The cost of bags actually is a hidden but huge cost on regular vacuums so a bagless style ends up costing a lot less. I think the figure is they break even after 4-5 years.
