I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but how do you vacuum up dog hair? I've got a fairly ordinary vacuum cleaner and it seems to do OK. Gets most of the fur off the floor, and if I reduce the strength of the cleaner, I can vacuum my dog - she really doesn't mind being vacuumed, almost sees it a strange sort of game. I saw recently that Dyson, which I really can't afford, have a combined brush/vacuum tool for their cleaners - rather pricey though. I know my dog shouldn't be shedding now, it's almost time for her to grow her winter coat, but she is. Any ideas? I brush her about every second day. She's not really a long coated dog - a BCxCDxKelpie.
