My friend Dave has a Pitbull and after playing with his dog, I am covered in pitbull hair. The problem with some pets is the constant shedding and residual odors. 

Unfortunately, you have to clean after them. There are plenty of vacuums like; The Shark, and Dyson, but Miele manufactures the best vacuum in the world.

We will look at benefits of Miele vacuums and then look at The Cat & Dog model. 

Miele Vacuums

Miele C3 series has a 1200 watt motor designed, engineered and manufactured, and not outsourced by Miele. The strongest attribute to any Miele product is their attention to detail.

All the products are produced in one German factory down to the component level. The vacuums, like their dishwashers, are some of the most reliable products in the world, because they have such a tight control of the process.

You should expect 15-20 years out of a Miele vacuum.

Miele has of the most powerful, yet quietest motors on the market. It has three separate filters for clean air throughout your house, a self locking bag, a pre filter on the motor as well as an exhaust filter as well.

They can also exhaust to .01 of a micron for Hepa certification.

Miele C3 - The Cat & Dog

Miele's C3 vacuums like the Kona and especially the Brilliant are Miele's best. The Cat & Dog distinguishes itself with a better filtration system and three brushes designed for, you guessed it...cats and dogs.

Final Thoughts

$949 is a ton of money for any vacuum. However, this should be the last vacuum, you will ever own. It will also be the easiest to use. So, for shedding animals, consider the Miele Cat & Dog.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
