" ...  We have one low pile rug and he has no trouble negotiating it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It does a great job picking up daily dirt ,pet hair, cat litter, etc. ... :) I love that it can get under furniture and places a traditional vacuum can't fit, too. ... It would be cool if it could "learn" the layout of the house a little better and maybe remember which rooms it had cleaned last, so that if it runs out of juice before finishing, it would know to go back to the rooms it didn't get last time, the next time it starts up. ... I do not have time to vacuum as much as I'd like considering the pet situation, and now the floor is always clean!  ...  "

" ...  I've ben super pleased with bob sweep pet version.  ...  "
comment
" ...  He will not completely eliminate your vacuum, what he does do is keep your floors neat and tidy so you only need to pull the big dog out on occasion. ... Our floor has never been so consistently clean however and we have a big hairy dog. ... Its great coming home from work and having clean floors, right down to the lines in the carpet. ... Aside from the cleaning out of his dustbin, which i really only do about once a week now that our floors are pretty clean. ... You have to clean his brushes and there is a rubber brush that my wifes long hair just seems to destroy(hair gets wrapped around the brush and cuts little grooves into it) this doesnt seem to have any real impact on the function of bobi but sooner or later it will.  ...  "
comment
" ...  That said, I like it much more than expected - it is a beautiful chrome/mirror finish that looks really elegant (but shows fingerprints, if that's of concern). ... We empty the dust bin A LOT - recommended is approximately 1x/week, but I would say every other day.  ...  "

" ...  She transfers from my hardwood floors to the rugs easily and cleans up all the dog hair.  ...  "
