These get 4 and 4.5 stars! Here is what one review had to say about the Pet version:
This vac has a ridiculously large amount of suction for it’s size. The suction power, together with the odd looking but highly effective v-shape front edge, pulls the hair and dirt into the vac rather than pushing it around. It’s hard to overstate the “Wow!” factor involved as it cleans right up to the baseboards, under the cupboard edges, pulls hair from corners and around chair legs. (I’d been using the edging tool on my large upright vac to do the same things–heavy, took more time, and didn’t clean as well!) All that in a light-weight vac that can be picked up one handed without a thought. I’ve been zipping this around at home on our vinyl and laminate floors while carrying my infant daughter in her baby sling. Emptying the vac is simple and doesn’t make a mess. Yet another great feature is the absence of bristles. Everyone who deals with pet hair quickly learns that bristles are just spots for the hair to collect and drag around the house rather than going into the vac. Someone at Bissell was doing their homework.
