Pet Hair, Different Dog Breeds & Shedding

There’s several general factors that can impact a dog’s coat – diet is one of those factors.

But, different dog breeds may also:

  • Have more or less, and thicker or thinner hair in total
  • Have a single or a double coat
  • Shed different amounts of hair throughout all months of the year
  • Shed different amounts of hair seasonally at the change of different seasons throughout the year (a dog that blows its coat usually does so twice a year)

One of the biggest factors that people can overlook when analyzing the amount and rate that different dogs shed at is genetics. Even some dogs within the same breed may shed much more or less depending the on the genes they inherit.


Spaniel Dog Hair & Shedding

Different Spaniels will shed different amounts.

Some may shed moderately, whereas some may shed more heavily – especially seasonally.

People who are planning on getting, or who already own a Spaniel, should be prepared to manage and pick up dog hair.

We’ve also summarised some of this information below …


Factors To Consider When Choosing Which Vacuum To Buy

Some of the main factors that you may consider in purchasing a vacuum are:

  • What type of vacuum it is
  • What range of surfaces it is intended for – low pile carpets, high pile carpets, hard floors, and so on
  • The price range
  • Whether it is a single vacuum, or a 2 in 1, or even 4 in 1 system
  • Whether it has ground level, and above ground level cleaning capabilities (like a lift off vacuum with an extendable hose for example)
  • Whether it’s corded or cordless
  • How long the cord is if it’s corded
  • What type of battery it has, how long it takes to charge, and how long it runs under the different cleaning modes. Does it come with a charger, battery, and charging dock?
  • How many cleaning modes it has, and what those cleaning modes are
  • What the controls are (buttons, or LCD screen), and where they are located on the vac (+ how they work)
  • How powerful the suction is (in comparison to other vacuums)
  • What type of motor it has (brushless?), it’s power, and it’s life time
  • What volume (in dB) does the vacuum run at
  • How big is the dust container, and how do you empty it
  • What type of brush or brush roll it has (and how easy it is to remove hair from the brush roll)
  • Whether it has rotating or swivel capabilities (both sideways, and up and down)
  • What the cleaning path is
  • Whether there are adjustable height settings, or whether the vacuum automatically adjusts it’s height
  • What filtration system it has
  • Whether the filters are washable
  • The allergen system it has
  • How much it weighs
  • What attachments and tools does it come with?
  • What is the warranty for and how long does it last. What are the conditions
  • What is the return policy and conditions

Note also that the different types of vacuums may have their own individual factors to consider apart from the above general ones. For example, robotic vacuums may have additional factors to consider such as:

  • Whether it’s just a vacuum, or whether it’s a 2 in 1 vacuum and mop
  • What height of incline it can climb (for carpet and flooring surface edges)
  • How powerful the vacuum suction is 
  • Whether it is hand remote controlled, or smartphone app controlled
  • What sort of remote it has – standard, or advanced
  • What Wi-Fi Connectivity it has – 2.4 GHz only or 5 GHz as well
  • Whether it is Alexa voice compatible, or Google compatible
  • Whether is has touchscreen buttons
  • Whether the vac can be automatically scheduled
  • What sort of brush it has – single brush, double brush, pet bar beater brush
  • Whether it cleans a single room, or multiple rooms
  • What surfaces it is for – most robo vacs are for thin carpets and hard surfaces, but not thick/plush carpets
  • How many cleaning modes it has
  • What cleaning modes it has (auto, spot cleaning, turbo/max suction modes etc.)
  • Whether it has object, and cliff sensors
  • What sort of navigation system it has – laser navigation system, camera navigation system etc
  • Whether it has side brushes for walls and edges
  • What it’s clearance height is
  • What it’s cleaning speed is
  • Whether it automatically docks and charges
  • + other factors


Always Check Warranty & Return Conditions Before You Buy Or Order

When ordering or purchasing any vacuum, you want to be aware of and be satisfied with the warranty and return conditions before you buy. Get them in writing if possible. 

A few key things you’ll want to know are – which parts of the vacuum are under warranty and for how long, whether there is a full return policy and how long from date of purchase it is valid, and how shipping (and shipping costs) is managed.

A dedicated customer service line also helps (not just for warranty and return, but for any operation, set up or repair problems you might have with the vacuum).

The more money you spend on a vacuum, the more sure you want to be that your money is covered by both a good warranty and return policy.


Removing Pet Hair From Different Surfaces … Vacuums Alone Aren’t The Single Solution

We put together this guide on removing pet hair from different surfaces such as carpets, hard floors, clothes, furniture and home linen, washing machines, cars, and so on:

What we note is that vacuums alone often won’t help you completely remove or clean up pet hair (this is especially the case for less powerful or smaller vacuums like robotic vacuums and small handheld vacuums)

Reducing the amount of hair being dropped is an important step that will help – by regularly brushing your pet, or laying down covers and rugs that you don’t mind regularly brushing off and washing for example. And, you may often need other tools and hair removal methods in addition to a vacuum to help you remove pet hair effectively (especially in thick carpets, or surfaces that absorb a lot of pet hair).
