iRobot i7156 Roomba i7
Major Improvements Across the Board
The iRobot i7156 Roomba i7 is one of the best robot vacuums for pet hair on the market. The robot hoover isn't necessarily packing any tech that we haven't seen before. But the same technologies here have been upgraded and improved to make for the most excellent robot vacuum.
The company's proprietary AeroForce cleaning system has probably received the biggest upgrade. As always, it is a brushless system. Tossing away the usual double-brush approach, the model comes equipped with 2 rubber extractors instead. These extractors are perfect for different hard floor types and entail low maintenance requirements.
Other than that, this series is packing 10 times more suction power compared to its 600 series predecessor. Armed with unprecedented suction power, the robot hoover makes sure neither dust nor dirt is left behind.
Apart from the AeroForce cleaning system, the company's iAdapt® 3.0 navigation has seen the biggest improvement. Incorporating visual localisation and vSLAM® technology, iRobot's patented iAdapt® 3.0 navigation tech lets the robot map its surroundings to seamlessly and efficiently clean an entire level. The cleaner creates visual landmarks, keeping track where it's been and where it has yet to clean.
Adapting, Adjusting, Flexing on the Dirt
The aforementioned rubber extractors deserve the spotlight too. On paper, these brushes aren't that different from the company's trademark multi-surface brushes. The difference this time is that the brushes incorporate rubber treads that work wonders staying in constant contact with various floor surfaces. From hard floors to carpets, adjusting and flexing, these brushes never fail to pick up just about everything, from smaller particles like dust and dirt to hair and large debris.
Setting these changes aside, this robot hoover isn't all that different from the company's previous models. The new high-efficiency filter is just as good at capturing ~99% of cat and dog allergens.
The cleaner has no issues driving over doorsteps/carpets that aren't taller than 2 centimetres. Provided that is the case, the robot vacuum will never fail to automatically reach the next room to ensure a comprehensive cleaning. Using the long side brush, the model is able to clean along sidebars and walls as well as any other part.
Bottom line, the iRobot i7156 Roomba i7 is one of the smartest devices the company has to offer. You can control it with the iRobot HOME App or with your voice assistant. The robot hoover is able to learn, map, and adapt to your home. The model will not fail to pick up the dirt you see and the dust you don’t. Its suction power borders on ridiculous.

Coredy R750 Robot Vacuum Cleaner
An Intelligent One
Smart units by default, many robotic mops come packed with added intelligent functions to enhance the functionality and optimise the cleaning process. The Coredy R750 robotic cleaner is one of those clever fellows.
Just like many other models of this kind, the Cordy R750 is a combo that can both vacuum and mop the floorings, easily switching between soft carpets that need dedusting and hard floors that require wiping. With the battery runtime up to 150 minutes, the unit can dry clean the area up to 150 sq.m. and mop the surface up to 50 sq.m. depending on the cleaning intensity you choose. Speaking of the other specs, those are great too: a robust motor ensures a decent suction power of 1600 Pa to efficiently capture all sorts of dust and debris; a HEPA filter securely traps fine particles and allergens, and an electronic water pump along with a leak-proof mop system delivers spill-free damp clean. In addition to that, tangle-free brushes the cleaner is fitted with easily pick up hair and fur without getting clogged, making this model a real find for households with pets. As a result, a single little unit will perform all-around thorough clean in close to no time, with no effort from your side.
Find my Robot
Coming down to intelligence features, the Coredy R750 boasts a whole bundle of them. Easily controlled via an included remote, Alexa Voice, or an app on your smartphone, the unit offers customisable cleaning schedules allowing you to plan your cleans for a whole week ahead. A virtual boundary function paired with a magnetic strip and dual-hall sensors on the unit will let you restrict the cleaning area as you wish and a smart recharge function will keep the unit fully charged and always ready for work. Meanwhile, a Find My Robot option will let you quickly detect the unit in case it gets stuck somewhere under the furniture. On top of those pretty common smart options, the Coredy R750 boasts a special Boost Intellect™ technology that helps optimise the battery charge consumption and achieve excellent cleaning results by automatically controlling the suction power in vac mode when moving between hard floors and carpets.
Summing up, with the Coredy R750, you’ll get a balanced combo of smart cleaning technologies and easy controls to keep your floorings spotless and dust-free.

Ecovacs DEEBOT N79S
Great Value for the Money
If you're not looking for a complete substitution for a traditional vacuum cleaner, the ECOVACS DEEBOT N79S can be the best bet. It's a very affordable option that can reduce the effort needed for regular cleaning significantly. The DEEBOT N79S is an upgraded version of the popular DEEBOT N79. It features a Max Mode suction option which allows you to increase its suction power by 50% in two settings, Auto and Single Room cleaning. By the way, the Auto Cleaning mode is best suited for daily cleaning chores, while the Single Room mode is good for cleaning one specific room. All you need to do is enable the bot and close the door. Also, the vac has two additional modes: the Spot Cleaning mode and the Edge Cleaning mode. The Spot Cleaning setting isn't for daily cleaning but it's perfect for cleaning rooms with a high concentration of dirt. In this mode, the vac cleans in a spiral pattern to dig out stained dirt and pet dander. The Edge Cleaning mode is designed for removing dust and debris in the corners and along the walls. When the charge level drops low, the unit finds itself back to the charging station to start recharging. We would like to point out that the N79S has an air filtration system that captures tiny particles ejected into the air during cleaning.
The N79S Robot Vacuum is much more sophisticated than other models in its price range. This model is compatible with the ECOVACS App allowing you to get the stats, receive alerts, or configure the item to clean on a preset schedule. The app just requires 2.4GHz or higher Wi-Fi. You can also use Alexa voice commands to direct cleaning. Yet, if for some reason you can't use the ECOVACS App or Alexa, the vacuum is supplied with a traditional remote. So, having the Wi-Fi set up is not as important, making this especially useful for those with no Internet connection. With the included remote control, you can activate the bot, switch between the cleaning modes, schedule the cleaning, and configure other settings remotely.
To remove even the driest mess after your pet and all the dog or cat hair from your floors, consider buying the N79S Robot Vacuum. With its high suction power, it will remove even the toughest debris. And the convenient controls will make the use of this robot vacuum for pet hair a piece of cake.

Reaches Every Corner
If you are an owner of a furry cat or dog, you probably face the problem of hair cleaning on a frequent basis. When average hoovers get clogged and can’t deal with a pet mess, the Bagotte BG600 Robot Vacuum Cleaner for Pet Hair will come to the rescue.
This device boasts quite decent max suction power of 1500 Pa and can easily reach all the corners of your house since this automatic vacuum is fitted with a special rubber surface suction port. Thanks to that, the cleaning brush slides tightly on the floor and removes dirt and debris in one stroke. There is also a double-sided brush that cleans the baseboard line extra thoroughly. It suits for vacuuming all kinds of surfaces (hard floors and carpets). The device is also very slim. With the height of only 6.8 cm, it will easily fit under beds, sofas and armchairs.
The other thing we really like about this product is that it comes with multiple cleaning modes. You can select between auto-cleaning, spot cleaning, max power cleaning, edge cleaning and a single room cleaning. To select the desired mode, use the IR remote control that comes in the set. You can also schedule daily clean-ups, so you won’t have to turn the device on manually.
Like most of the modern robot vacuum cleaners, this model is fitted with different sensors that protect the device (IR sensor, Anti-drop technology, Anti-collision technology). There are also magnetic stripes included in the set. You can put them in front of the stairs of fragile pieces of furniture to keep the cleaner and your stuff safe.
As for the time of cleaning performance, the device can work for 100 minutes and then it will automatically return to the charging station, but some users point out that sometimes it struggles to find the dock quickly. The time of one full charge should be enough to clean the room of about 140 square meters. The capacity of the bit is not small as well, about 550 ml.
As for the air purification, this model is fitted with average filters: High-Performance Filter and Foam Filter. You also get 1 additional filter in the set.
And last but not least, we would like to point out that this model is very quiet. With the noise level of only 40 dB, this vac can clean your house even in the nighttime and it won’t bother you in your sleep.
In conclusion, the Bagotte BG600 Robot Vacuum Cleaner for dog and cat hair is a good appliance for big and average houses. Completed in a slim minimalistic body with well-thought-out brushes, it will reach every corner of your house.

Efficiently Removes Dust, Dirt, and Allergens
Regular cleaning not only makes your house tidy and comfortable but also helps to remove germs and allergens from surfaces. Designed to do the chores for you, the Robit R3000 delivers powerful suction to remove up to 99.9% of dust, mould and pollen from both hard and carpeted floors. That said, it has a compact thin design and needs little storage space. More importantly, the item boasts a quiet operation so it won't disturb you, your family or your pets.
To ensure flawless performance, the unit is equipped with a full suite of sensors. That way, the device will detect stairs and furniture and customise its path to prevent drops and collisions. Moreover, featuring a Carpet Boost technology, the hoover will increase the suction power automatically when it detects a carpet. Note that this model is recommended for cleaning hard floors and medium-pile carpets and not suitable for thick carpets.
Next, this smart floor cleaner is equipped with a 2600mAh rechargeable battery and can operate for up to 120 min on one charge. The purchase includes a charging base. When the battery runs low, the robot hoover will return to it automatically for recharging. However, if the item is too far from the base, it may not be able to find it. So, if the main unit flashes red light and sounds four beeps, you will need to put it into the charging base manually.
Thanks to the included remote control, you can easily customise the appliance's performance to your cleaning needs. For example, a Spot setting can be used for targeted cleaning of certain areas. In this mode, the unit will move spirally outwards and inwards with increased suction power. Use the Edge cleaning mode to sweep around the furniture and along the walls and a Single Room cleaning mode if you only need to clean one room. Max suction power can be activated by pressing a Max button on the remote.
Adding to its benefits, the robot vacuum has a triple filter system for more effective dust capturing. To maximise its performance, it uses side brushes in addition to a roller brush. The purchase includes a cleaning brush for cleaning the roller brush and other parts of the unit. Please, carefully follow the manufacturer's recommendations on the maintenance of the machine.
To wrap it up, the Robit R3000 robot vacuum cleaner will thoroughly clean your home, removing allergens, dust and pet hair from both hard and carpeted floors. Smart sensors will prevent the device from falling off the stairs and colliding with furniture.

What Is a Robot Vacuum for Pet Hair?
If you are a pet owner, more likely than not, the problem of hair and dander lurking everywhere in your home is well familiar to you. To solve this problem, you can either continue picking all those hairs by hand, haul a bulky hoover behind you every time you see a hair "staring" at you or buy a robotic vac for pet hair. With a robotic vac cleaner, you will achieve the best results and, what's more important, won't need to put any elbow grease into the process. Once you program it, the unit will do the rest for you, building maps around your house to pick up dirt, dust, dander and small particles that are hard to see. What's more, the unit will effortlessly reach tight spots, deftly climbing over thresholds and carpets and bypassing various obstacles that might come along its way, thus, ridding of you the need to stand there and watch it.
To help you make your choice, we've selected these five best-selling robot vacuums for pet hair. Hopefully, you'll find a suitable model here. If not, head for our selection of Eufy robot vacs - though not always claimed in the description, but many of these models can pick pet hair too.
What Features to Compare
First and foremost, you need to pay attention to the intelligence of a robot vac. By this, we mean the navigation technology and cleaning pattern. The smarter the vac is, the more effective the cleaning pattern will be. Manufacturers do their best to supply their vacs with smart features and attachments. For instance, most of the high-end vacuums come with bumpers featuring infrared sensors that prevent them from falling down the stairs or collisions, thereby protecting your furniture from any damage. Also, most of them are able to detect the dirtiest spots in your home and clean them more efficiently.
With regard to cleaning patterns, vacuum cleaners from a lower price range usually offer two standard patterns: "Along the wall" and "Chaotic". Speaking of more expensive models, those can have 10 patterns and more and will move in a zigzag or spiral pattern as well. Some of the smartest vacuum cleaners will create a map of your house and learn where the furniture is - this allows them greater flexibility and significantly speeds up the cleaning process.
Like their full-on handheld counterparts, these vacs can be adjusted to the type of floor they’re cleaning. The suction power can be changed when the device works on a carpet or on any kind of hard floor. Some vacuums adapt automatically, and some simple models should be adjusted manually. The robotic vacuum cleaners may also feature a spot mode, which allows them to concentrate on a particular area and clean it more thoroughly.
Every robot vac has a recommended cleaning area according to its operation time per a single charge. The battery type and the charging time are the main features that determine the runtime. The higher the battery capacity is, the larger the area the item can vacuum. The majority of robots can return to their charging bases once the battery is low.
Considering that the word “robotic” is in the title, the controls of such a vac shouldn’t be a pain in the neck for you. Most of the models feature an automatic mode, that’s why all you have to do is press the button on your device, remote or even phone if your model comes with a corresponding app. More high-end vacs are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can control the unit simply with your voice. Some of the robotic vacuums can also be programmed to clean on a schedule, which will help to keep your house clean even when you are at work.
Finally, pay attention to the extra features a robotic vac offers. Today, you can find models with a mopping function for wet cleaning. Once you attach the mop, the vac will get rid of even the trickiest stains on floors. Furthermore, some models are equipped with UV lamps for complete disinfection. They can sanitize the surfaces by killing bacteria, germs, and allergens. Both these features are extremely useful for pet owners, as pet hair is one of the most common triggers of indoor allergies. Many top robotic vacs also boast advanced HEPA-filtration systems that allow them to trap even the smallest dust particles and allergens consequently. So, if you want to live in a healthy environment, make sure the model you choose includes some of these useful extras.
Did you know?
For all the owners who are looking for a robot vacuum for pet hair, we selected some interesting facts about our small furry friends and their life all around the globe.
The Highest Rate of Pet Ownership
According to the Guinness World Records, Australia is the country with the highest rate of pet ownership. More than 60% of families there have at least one pet, typically a cat or dog. 83% of Australian people have owned a pet within their whole life. And 20% of Australian pet owners have insurance for their four-legged friends.
Yet, according to the newest online surveys, pet ownership is currently the highest in Latin America where 80% of the population owns a pet. In the US, around 70 % of households have a pet.
Asian countries have the smallest percentage of pets living with people.
Dogs or Cats?
A third of the population across the world has reported having a dog compared to 23% as cat owners. Dogs are the most popular pet in Argentina, while cats are the most widespread in Russia. Romania has the most balanced cat/dog ratio with 45% of households with dogs and 45% owning cats.
The people in the UK spend more than 4 billion British pounds annually on their lovely pets. And more than half of cat and dog owners would consider paying more for their pet's healthcare than for their own one. It's simply no wonder that 95% of Brits claim that they consider their favourite pet as a part of their family.
The Most Pet-friendly Countries
France is the country of dog lovers and you can see dogs just anywhere there. Dogs are even welcome in shops, cafés, bars, and markets.
Aussies also have lots of places where dogs are welcome, including beautiful beaches and parks. The exceptions are national parks. Dogs are also allowed in public transport if the transportation rules are strictly followed.
Another country with lots of animal lovers is England. You are allowed to take your pets to the underground, parks, and some museums. Dogs just should be kept on their leashes.
Austria is a leading country in stopping animal cruelty. There is a ban on selling cats and dogs at pet stores as well as some guidelines against training methods that involve force.
Hungary also wants the best for their animals and requires that dogs should necessarily get a minimum required amount of exercise daily. Also, pets there are microchipped and should undergo frequent medical checkups. Pets are welcome at restaurants in Hungary.
The Netherlands is one more country where you can freely take your pet with you to shops, restaurants, and cafés.
All pet owners in Switzerland are required to get pet insurance, and there are also some rules preventing cruelty to dogs during training. Moreover, Swiss airlines allows people to take small dogs in the aircraft cabin.
Canadian people love pets as much as we do but unlike European countries, it's not permitted to take pets to restaurants in Canada. Yet, our neighbours have numerous spas for dogs and full-service pet daycares.
