If you live with a dog and have carpets, then you know that keeping things clean can be physically difficult and emotionally straining. Let alone trying to get hair out of your carpets, especially if you have a long-haired or dense-carpet dog.
Not only does dog hair have a nasty tendency to spread all over the place; it also is difficult to remove and can cause a real fuss to clean. If you have an extra-large, furry dog like a Lab or Greyhound who sheds a whole lot, then this can make for a seemingly endless (and emotionally depressing) task.
But there are products available that will reduce and eventually eliminate the amount of hair you have to pick up. These include a host of things such as high-quality vacuums, grooming tools, and services you can hire in order to keep unwanted dog hair under control. There’s also a whole host of other things you can do to make dog hair cleaning during the day a little less daunting. But for those times when the laziness strikes, there’s nothing better than a robot vacuum cleaner.
In fact, a robot vacuum cleaner can be one of the most effective tools you have to bringing your dog and your house together in a state of harmony.
And finding the right one for you can save you a whole lot of effort and irritation in the long-term.

6. Coredy Robot Vacuum Cleaner
- Affordable price
- Anti-collision function
- Good cleaning performance
- Poor customer service
- Can choke on pet hair
The Coredy Robot Vacuum Cleaner is my top pick considering the low price and impressive cleaning performance. The Coredy is a budget-friendly option that still manages to perform admirably and comes packed with a number of handy features.
From the name, you’d expect that the Coredy does an excellent job cleaning hardwood floors with its tri-brushing system. However, it actually does a better job picking up pet hair than on hardwood floors with its soft motorized brush.
Despite its powerful suction, the Coredy can also “dock” itself automatically and resume cleaning the next day. If it gets stuck, it will find its way to its charging dock, which is perfect for those who live in apartments and don’t want to spend several minutes picking the little guy up.

It received an average user rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars from almost 11,000 reviews. One review said “It is great, especially for people with a lot of pets or carpets.”
The Roomba 614 has a Dirt Detect Series 2 feature that allows it to pick up more dirt than its predecessors. Another feature called Crawl Control helps maintain Roomba’s integrity while moving over various floor types.

The EV675 is also equipped with an edge-sweeping brush that allows it to get deep into corners, a convenient carrying handle/hanger, and an auto/manual mode switch.
What I also like about it is the self-charging dock (a dock that the vacuum returns to when battery power is low), the 7-day programmable timer, the LED indicator light, and the two buttons that give me the option to clean my location or go to random cleaning.

- Good eco-friendly device
- slightly heavier than usual
- Not suitable for small apartments or singles
If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner which is great for pet hair, the Roborock E2 is your best bet due to the special pet hair cleaning mode. Another thing in its favor is the fact that it is the only robot vacuum which comes with a Navigation Internal Route Plan. As a result, it would take 21 days for it to clean the whole area area that is covered by the robot.
Roborock E2 is equipped with 13.5Mpa suction power, which is top class. That power provides the robot with enough force to sweep through rugs and carpets. Moreover, it has 498 ml of dust capacity, which means it can be run all day before you have to empty it.
