Overall

All of these vacuum have good ratings.

The regular Lift Away, Professional and Deluxe are all popular, and commonly bought for home owners and pet owners.

We rated the Shark Professional as one of the best vacuums for pets.

The Speed in particular though may be well suited to dog owners because of the self cleaning brush (that is designed to prevent pet hair wrap of the brush roll).

In terms of upright corded vacuums, these Shark models are some of the best on the market.
