    Default Roomba and the shedding dog

    I have a dog who is a horrible shedder. Dog hair was all over the floor and was always a mess. I wound up getting a Roomba a couple of months ago, and have to say, it has made one heck of a difference! It's scheduled to clean every day at 10:00 while I'm at work, it vacuums, and then parks itself. Just throwing it out there to those of you who have shedding dogs and hate vacuuming - it works!

    Mine Bissell of many years died this week so I bought another one and this new one is the boss!!! http://www.bissell.com/pet-hair-eraser-vacuum/ Holy cow the Turbo Tool has incredible power and took all the hair off the couches and lampshades.

    A Roomba might send my Chihuahua's right.over.the.edge. Think "big mouse".

    She's about 40 lbs - a lab/beagle mix who sheds much more than you would expect by looking at her. Not sure how many square feet - but it is four rooms, all hardwood, that it does on a daily basis. It is noisy, and does take a while, but you can schedule it to just start on its own at a set time each day. It vacuums, and then docks itself. It did get my dog going to begin with, but now she just ignores it.
