Rated 4 out of 5 by Jules wonderful picks up pet fur !
I have 5 dogs and 3 cats and am very happy with the performance of this vacuum ! My only issues are that the hose for attachments is not long enough and I am having an issue with the filter and cover on the side of vacuum blowing off. It is frustrating because I have to stop and put back on several times while vacuuming.

I bought a refurbished Total Floor Pet Deluxe. I love this little vacuum! I never used my old vacuum on bare floors, this vacuum gets it all! The suctions is amazing, on carpet it almost like it's self propelled. Lite easy to handle,the cord allows you to cover a large area, before moving the plug. Just keep all the filters clean and it gets the job done! I wish you had made the hose and wand longer! I payed very little for this vacuum, but I'd pay full price for another! Thank You Bissell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by strikethree19 Great vacuum But have had issues with a filter and cover
I have had two of these vacuums and I think it is perfect. I have 2 labrador retrievers and they shed terriably but the vacuum does a wonderful job getting their hair up on the carpet and harwood floors. The only complaint that I have is that I can't find a replacement febreeze filter. Everytime I use it spend countless amounts of time putting the filter back in and putting the cover back on. Somehow the air keeps blowing it off. The only filter that local stores sell is not the filter with the black piece on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeTaxPayer VERY DISAPOINTING! makes a horrible horrible high pitched sound when turned on
The vacuum worked great for about the first month, than shortly after that it developed a real high pitched nails on a chalk board ear piercing noise which is unbearable. I make sure I keep up with all the maintenance on this vacuum *cleaning filters etc* and nothing helps which is a real shame because other than a few little problems it is a real nice product. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a Bissell product.

I was disappointed when I found it has no extension piece to help me reach up high to vacuum so I have to get on a ladder to reach up high

Rated 1 out of 5 by T C897 Not for a Pet owner with real Dogs!!!!
Maybe this vacuum is great for people with little dogs, but not for someone like me who has 3 Siberian Huskys and a cat!!!
I like to vacuum everyday, and was a little apprehensive about buying a vacuum without a bag, but I have had these dogs for 9 years tried one when they were puppies and didn't like it but, figured maybe the technology had changed and would give it a shot again. Well, it can't hold up to my household, The febreze filter smells great but after 5 to 10 minutes of vacuuming the door and the filter come flying off! I have had a replacement door sent and that's not the problem, (It's Over Heating)!!! And I can't understand why since I haven't even had the vacuum a month and I empty the cup before it's full and after every time I vacuum I take the cup and the cone and rinse them with soap and water so the vacuum itself is super clean!
In my opinion it just can't stand up to the job of dogs with long hair with out over heating and that's a problem!!!!
Back to a Vacuum with a bag! Never have a problem with them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Summa More bang for your buck
This vacuum has exceeded my expectations for the amount of money we spent on it! We have a German Shepard and a lab/pit mix who are indoor dogs and shed a lot! I bought this vacuum expecting that it would just pick up the dog hair and make cleaning a little quicker for me. I was incredibly suprised at the amount of fine dust and dander that was sucked up from the area rug when I emptied the canister. What's more, when the carpet looked clean, the vacuum had the power to keep sucking more grime out if it that you'd never think was there! The febreeze filter smells amazing and really fills the air. I actually really enjoy vacuuming now. Love love love this vacuum and would deffinatly recommend it.
