Thanks to the folks over at Dyson, we got our paws on their brand new Dyson V6 Top Dog handheld vacuum cleaner. It’s just launched for sale, but they sent it to us early so that we could test it out and share our experiences with you!
Pet parents know that the cleaning battle against pet hair is real, and not to be taken lightly. Keeping the fuzz factor under control takes constant vigilance and the best tools you can find. Even for a short-haired dog, Daisy sure does shed a lot, and every time I turn around there is a new pile of fur on some piece of furniture, throw pillow, rug or floor.
Although we vacuum a few times a week, and I run our Roomba almost daily (especially helpful for under the beds, night stands and dresser, I’m constantly finding NEW Daisy hair wherever I go. I could make a Daisy clone with the amount of fur she sheds in an average week! Having a cordless handheld pet vacuum has really been a game changer. No more having to pull out the upright vac and attachments for small jobs…I just grab my Dyson handheld, pull the trigger, and zap the spot.
Being cordless makes it super fast and hassle-free to clean up a corner, her dog bed, and our patio furniture. And being so easy means I’m much more likely to clean up little messes before they turn into big ones!
I’m impressed with how much time I’m saving on routine chores like vacuuming Daisy’s dog bed. Doing it weekly, it now only takes about 2-3 minutes to really remove all the fur she’s shed since the last time I did it. The speed is due to how powerful the suction is as well as the design of the mini motorized tool. The bin holds more than other hand vacs I’ve tried, which is also a time saver because there’s no stopping to empty it or clear the filter. Here’s a shot with a full bin from doing her dog bed today.
For clean hands and convenience, the vacuum is designed with a quick release button to empty the bin while holding it over the trash. I also really like that the filter is washable and meant to last a lifetime. That saves on waste and extra costs since I’ll never need to buy replacement filters.
A Fast & Powerful Handheld Vac
This is my first Dyson, and although they can be more pricey than other vacuum brands, I can really feel the difference in power, speed and design elements. It’s designed to be easy and convenient to use, and feels built-to-last. It’s a little bit heavier than other hand vacs I’ve tried, but definitely not TOO heavy for every day use. Since I just grab it for quick pickups, I haven’t used it for a long enough session to have the battery run out, but the specs say you can expect to get 20 minutes run time on one full charge. That will certainly be enough for next time I need to vacuum my car, and I’m SO happy to add this weapon to my arsenal in the never-ending battle against dog hair, shedding and pet messes!
