Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim MK2 Review

Let’s look at a vacuum that can minimize the time you have to spend, bent over, trying to get rid of pet hair. This is one vacuum that dog owners are rating very highly.

The fact that it is so easy to take out and use is a huge point scorer. Most customers have been pleasantly surprised to see how much stubborn pet hair and fluff has been sucked up into the bin. And of course, their delight extends to the fact that they don’t have to worry when visitors sit on their upholstered lounge. No more embarrassing pet hair all over dark clothing.
