How to find the best broom vacuum cleaners for pets

Surely if you have pets, you hate that there is hair everywhere. A quality broom vacuum cleaner for pets can be a good ally to keep your home free of hair, but on many occasions, it gets clogged and ends up being a big hassle, right?

To avoid this, it is convenient to acquire a pet broom vacuum cleaner, which is specially designed to collect animal hair. It has special nozzles, a tank that doesn’t get clogged easily, and it’s no more expensive than any other conventional vacuum cleaner. 

I suggest you discover the 2-in-1 broom format because it can reach any corner of the home or car without much effort, becoming a handheld vacuum cleaner as well, and you can store it comfortably if you don’t have space at home.

The 7 best broom vacuums for pets

 7. Cecotec Conga Popstar 1500 Animal

A corded vacuum cleaner  with  which you can clean  with unlimited autonomy

Cecotec Conga Popstar 1000 DuoStick Easy Vertical Vacuum Cleaner


  • Power: 800 in
  • Capacity: 800ml
  • Bag: No
  • The radius of action: 6 m
  • Autonomy: Permanent (with cable)
  • Filter: EPA

 Editorial Review

The Cecotec Conga Popstar 1500 Animal cyclonic and bagless model is the best if you want a  low-pricing vacuum cleaner. It stands out for having a cable, it is the only one on the list that has it. So you do not have to charge it often and its power (800 w)  is greater than the wireless ones, although it is not comparable with other more professional ones. Like the rest, you can use it as a vertical and handheld floor vacuum cleaner for furniture, corners, or upholstery. 

It includes a wide variety of accessories with which you can collect the hair of your pets from any corner. In addition, it has the second-largest tank, 800 ml, so you don’t have to empty it as often. And it can stand up straight. 

So why is it so cheap? The materials are of poorer quality than other models. It is not highly recommended for large floors, because sometimes it overheats a bit if you spend a lot of time with it. Although it has a radius of action that is not bad, you do not have as much freedom of movement. 

It would also improve the movement of the head, which does not rotate as it does, for example, the AEG. And, the filter is a bit laborious to clean since it is not recommended to wash it with water. I wish it included a brush to do it. In addition, it is difficult to find spare parts for this brand. It must be kept clean so that the device works well and the motor does not burn out. 

It is a simple broom vacuum cleaner for pets, but I like the value for money that Cecotec offers and it is perfect for sporadic use.

More important features

  • Measures 15 x 24 x 110 cm and weight 2 kg
  • It has a suction power of 15 kPa
  • Does not suck any type of liquid
  • The vertical bar is rigid, and cannot be flexed for use under furniture
  • 5 accessories (narrow nozzle, wide nozzle, flexible tube, brush, and additional for pet hair)


The cheapest on the list
Has cable
Small and very versatile (5 accessories)
Good power (800w)
800ml reservoir


Not recommended for large houses (+100 m2)
Basic materials
A bit noisy
Dry filter cleaning
Hard-to-find filter replacements

6. Taurus Ultimate Animal Care

The  wireless version of the best quality-price  of those analyzed

Taurus Ultimate Animal Care- Broom Vacuum; 2in1 handheld vacuum cleaner


  • Power: 22.2 v
  • Capacity: 650ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 40 minutes
  • Filter: HEPA

 Editorial Review

Cordless vacuum cleaners usually have a high price. But, there are also versions such as the  Taurus Ultimate Animal Care, which has very similar characteristics to the rest of the cordless models that I analyze below, with some disadvantages, but with the best price. A good option if you are looking for something more versatile and without cables at a reasonable cost

It has 3 useful accessories for the whole home and one especially for collecting pet hair. You can assemble and disassemble them entirely, with a single click. And, its structure completely disassembles, so it fits practically anywhere, it even includes a wall hanger. In addition,  it incorporates lighting, very useful for cleaning dark areas.

650 ml capacity tank to be easy to clean but higher than the AEG or the Bosch. It is also more powerful (22.2v). It has a reasonable suction capacity for everyday use. 

What I like the most compared to the Cecotec is that it can rotate up to 180 degrees to sneak under the sofa or furniture. It is very light and includes an ergonomic handle, being very easy to handle. But above all, it stands out for having a HEPA filter, which helps eliminate bad odors and helps allergy sufferers. It is the only one that has it, along with the Shark and the Rowenta. And you can wash it with water. 

One of the things that would improve is its autonomy. It lasts approximately 40 minutes, and although it does not take long to charge, for deep cleaning of the home it falls short. I also don’t like that it doesn’t stand up, unlike others. However, it is perfect for daily cleaning of your pet’s areas, even more so if they have short hair. 

More important features

  • Its size is 76.5 x 31 x 15 cm and it weighs 2.3 kg
  • Includes an LED indicator for battery level
  • 70 cm aluminum extension tube


Good value for money
Daily cleaning and very easy to handle
It can rotate up to 180º
Can be easily stored
Reasonable power (22.2v)
Includes HEPA filter


Recommended for short-haired animals
Not good for deep cleaning
Low autonomy (40 minutes)
Homes no more than 90 m2

5. Hoover Freedom FD22RP011

A  versatile option  for  those allergic  to dust mites or pet hair, with 4 accessories to clean any area of ​​the home

Hoover Freedom FD22RP011 - Cordless broom vacuum cleaner


  • Power: 22 v
  • Capacity: 700ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 25 minutes
  • Filter: Normal membrane

 Editorial Review

The  Hoover Freedom FD22RP011  is another 2-in-1 cyclonic vacuum cleaner, which you can use as a handheld vacuum cleaner to clean all the spaces you need, and with up to  4 different accessories, one of them special for animals. I recommend it if you are going to use it to clean your pet’s hair, sandbox, or food, since its autonomy is the lowest on the list ( 25 minutes ), although it has reasonable power (22 v)

Although its filter is not HEPA, it includes two: one made of plastic and the other made of fabric, which you can wash in water, and it is the only one that has a  silver ion system to reduce bacteria and allergen components. It also helps that the bin can be emptied simply by opening a lid on top of the bin, so direct contact with dust is greatly reduced. Its capacity is 700 ml, which is fine for a broom vacuum cleaner.  

It is a very manageable model and has a comfortable handle where you can press the button continuously, to clean at your convenience, or select the fixed mode so you don’t have to keep it pressed all the time. Also, like the Taurus, it is quite light and has LED lights to clean less bright areas. 

Its autonomy is what least convinces me. Also that it cannot be left standing, although it comes with a support to support it on the wall. The battery is one of the simplest, taking  6 hours to charge; alerts you when it’s done, changing the pilot from red to blue. Although it indeed spends less energy than the rest.  

More important features

  • Class A energy efficiency
  • Its measurements are 210 x 187 x 91 cm and a weight of 2.2 kg
  • Generates a normal noise of 75 dB
  • Includes a flexible brush for under furniture
  • It can be used on all types of floors (hard, parquet, carpet, rug…)


Many accessories
Useful for allergy sufferers
Reasonable deposit (700 ml)
No need to hold down the button
It weighs little and is easy to use
Has lighting


The least autonomy (25 minutes)
Your filter is not HEPA
It takes 6 hours to charge
Simple materials

4. AEG CX7-2-45AN

A model that has a  self-cleaning brush system  to prevent the hair from getting coiled

AEG CX7-2-45AN Cordless and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner


  • Power: 18 v
  • Capacity: 500ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 45 minutes
  • Filter: Normal membrane

 Editorial Review

What differentiates  AEG CX7-2-45AN  from others is its self-cleaning brush system. You just have to press the pedal so that the roller rotates and breaks the hair fibers avoiding clogging. This makes it one of the best for long-haired pets and homes of just over 100 m2.

Its power is one of the lowest (18 v), along with that of Bosch, but that allows it, on the one hand, to have a longer battery life of up to 45 minutes  (less if you use turbo speed), and on the other, to save in electricity consumption. It has enough suction for daily use and has nothing to envy others with greater power. In addition, it includes a special brush for pet hair and a normal filter that you can easily wash with water. 

It is one of the few that allows you to choose between two speeds, the previous ones were fixed, but it can only be done with vertical suction and not with the handheld one. I also like that you can rotate the brush up to 180 degrees. It includes  LED lights for dark areas. 

It has an intelligent charge, which prevents the battery from suffering because once it is fully charged (4 hours) it turns off. Also, you just have to put it on top and let it charge. You can anchor it on the wall or leave it on the floor if you prefer because it stands up anywhere

The motor and the tank are in the lower part of the vacuum cleaner, unlike the rest of the models. So it’s better to handle it, but it can’t get under the sofa so easily. And it weighs a bit when you spend a while with the handheld vacuum cleaner its tires. 

More important features

  • It has a size of 26.5 x 14.5 x 114.5 cm and a weight of 2.8 kg
  • Cannot absorb liquid, only solid
  • Includes wheels to move it more easily
  • 2 accessories (15 cm wide pet brush + 14 cm long rigid tube)


Brush self-cleaning
2 speeds to choose
Long-lasting battery (45 minutes)
It can rotate up to 180º
Stands up easily
Includes practical charging base
Has led lights


The lowest power (18v)
Somewhat heavy at 2.8kg
A bit noisy (79 dB)
Can’t get under the sofa or furniture
Autonomy is reduced with maximum power

3. Shark Anti Hair Wrap TruePet

Its double brush, high power, and  Anti Hair Wrap technology that prevents the accumulation of hair on the roller, make it an ideal version for pets with abundant and long hair.

Shark (IZ201EUT) Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Vacuum


  • Power: 25.2 v
  • Capacity: 700ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 40 minutes
  • Filter: HEPA

 Editorial Review

The Shark TruePet broom vacuum includes a technology that prevents hairs from rolling up and has a  double roller to absorb even more dirt. It doesn’t work miracles and some hairs can get tangled, but it happens less often than with the previous AEG. In addition, the capacity of the tank is greater at 700 ml and it is very easy to clean, you do not have to maintain contact with the filter to empty it. Includes LED light to better see the dirt. 

Its  HEPA filter can help eliminate bad odors and keep dust particles isolated, perfect for allergy sufferers. 

I was very surprised by its high power (25.2 v ), it can perfectly resemble a Dyson. It has a  motorized brush with two modes to choose from, depending on whether it is carpet or hard floor, plus the turbo to double the power if you need it. The selection can be done comfortably from the handle. It also has the advantage that it can be folded to clean under furniture. And, like the Taurus, you can use it in high places, but it is heavier. 

Although it cannot stand up or have a wall mount,  you can fold it up and store it anywhere. It is one of the ones that take up less space!

Another of its great advantages is that the battery can be easily removed and charged anywhere ( 3.5 hours ), either together with the vacuum cleaner or not. In addition, this allows you to replace it with another without having to send it to the technical service to disassemble the device and extend its useful life. Although it has the disadvantage that it does not include a charging base, something that I find very comfortable. 

Do you have snags? Of course. The autonomy is low for my taste,  it only has 40 minutes and less if you put it at maximum speed. Although it may be enough to go over some areas, it is not useful for completely cleaning the floor. It is also quite heavy, due to its large engine. And you should keep in mind that it has a high price. Now, in my opinion, it is worth the investment. 

More important features

  • The measurements are 26 x 24.5 x 118 and it weighs 4.1 kg
  • Includes 2 types of rollers for all types of floors
  • It has wheels to be able to move it comfortably
  • Includes a bag to store the 5 accessories 
  • The manufacturer offers a 5-year warranty on the vacuum cleaner and a 2-year warranty on the battery.


Quality materials
One of the most powerful wireless versions (25.2v)
Two cleaning modes + turbo
Reasonable capacity (700ml)
Removable battery
Reaches under furniture
Can be folded for storage


It is not cheap
It has a high weight (4.1 kg)
Limited autonomy of 40 minutes
Does not include a charging base

2. Rowenta XForce 11.50 Animal Care 

A broom vacuum cleaner with  a digital screen to control cleaning  at all times

Rowenta XForce Flex 11.50 RH9829 cordless broom vacuum cleaner


  • Power: 25.2 v
  • Capacity: 900ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 45 minutes
  • Filter: HEPA

 Editorial Review

The  Rowenta XForce 11.50 Animal Care version is comparable to the previous one from Shark, but it has its advantages and disadvantages compared to it. The most obvious improvement is that it includes a small intuitive screen where you can select the power you need and the battery status. It also has a  larger 900ml reservoir and a longer battery life of 45 minutes, which can vary depending on the power you use. 

Along with the Shark, it is the one with the most power of the wireless ones ( 25.2 v ). You must also remove the battery to charge it and it does not include a charging base like the Bosch or the AEG. The tube also doubles to clean under sofas or furniture. You can see better thanks to its built-in LED light. It has a  HEPA filter that can be cleaned with water, with the advantage that you can easily wring it out to dry faster. 

Another of its improvements compared to the previous one is that it can stand without needing to be supported and includes a wall bracket. It is very light, improves its charging time to 3 hours, and also has an economic mode to save battery. Unlike other models, it allows you to vacuum almost the entire home.  

What I have found less practical is the brush, I like the Shark one better because it does not have a system to cut the hair and prevent it from getting tangled. In this case, you have to take out the brush and cut the hair with scissors to throw it away, being more laborious to clean. Therefore, it is advisable if your pet has short hair

More important features

  • Its dimensions are 57 x 42.5 x 17.5 cm and a weight of 3 kg
  • 3 modes: Eco, Max, and Boost or turbo
  • You can increase its duration by 1.5 hours with an additional battery

Most useful for short-haired animals

1. Bosch Unlimited Gen 2 ProAnimal Serie 8 

A vacuum cleaner with which  you can vacuum up to 180 m2, thanks to its 65-minute autonomy

Bosch Hogar Unlimited Gen 2 ProAnimal Series 8 Upright Vacuum Cleaner


  • Power: 18 v
  • Capacity: 400ml
  • Bag: No
  • Wired: No (wireless)
  • Autonomy: 65 minutes
  • Filter: Normal membrane

 Editorial Review

If the  Bosch Unlimited Gen 2 ProAnimal stands out for something, it is for its long duration of 65 minutes. It can vary depending on the power you choose, since it has, like the previous one,  3 modes (eco, auto, and turbo), but even so, it is the one with the best battery of all those analyzed. This allows you to leave the entire home clean of your pet’s hair without having to charge it continuously. In addition, Bosch allows you to purchase a second battery so you never run out of charge. 

The other features are quite similar to the rest of the models, such as the fact that it has  LED lights on its motorized brush to visualize dark areas or that it can be flexed to clean under furniture. It also of course has a brush for pets but adds other interesting accessories such as a brush for the computer keyboard or a flexible tube with which you can access difficult places in the home and car. 

However, despite its high price, I am surprised that its tank is small (400 ml), does it have very high power (18 v), or that its filter is not HEPA. But the suction of this vacuum cleaner is very good, it is also light and has a charging base to hang on the wall, although it cannot be kept standing. And its charging time is on average as expected, with 4 hours. 

It is a good investment if you want a multipurpose vacuum cleaner,  with many accessories and long life, that not only serves to pick up your pet’s hair on time. Now, if you only need it for the latter, it is recommended that you purchase cheaper earlier models. 

More important features

  • Its size is 25 x 21 x 128 cm and with weight is 3.2 kg
  • You don’t have to wash the filter with water 
  • Versatile accessories: grout nozzles, 2-in-1 furniture brush, mini brush, and 2 pet brushes
  • The motor has a 10-year warranty

Includes many accessories
High-quality battery (65 minutes)
3 power modes
Incorporates LED lights
It is easy to clean
It can be flexed and has a charging base


The most expensive on the list
Reduced capacity (400ml)
Limited overall power (18v)

My recommended vacuum cleaner

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner with specific characteristics or a trusted brand, you may be interested in the following recommendations: 

The most powerful broom vacuum for pets 


Taurus Ultimate Animal Care- Broom Vacuum; 2in1 handheld vacuum cleanerIf you are looking for power in your special pet broom vacuum cleaner, because you have many pets or their hair is difficult to collect, for me the best is undoubtedly a corded one, such as the  Cecotec Conga Popstar 1500 Animal. You can use it for as long as you need both as a vertical and handheld vacuum cleaner. In addition, it has a very large tank (800 ml) to collect all loose hair. 

Since it does not have a built-in battery like cordless ones, the device is very light and easy to handle. You indeed have less mobility, but its suction power is higher than the rest. It incorporates a special accessory to collect pet hair and an  EPA filter that you must wash often to avoid clogging. But it is worth it for its low price

Brush vacuum cleaner for Dyson pets 


Dyson Cyclone V10 AnimalIf you are one of those who think that the Dyson is the best brand of vacuum cleaner and you have the money to invest in one, the  Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal is perfect for picking up your pet’s hair. It has a filtration system of the highest, with  99.97% retention of particles, and a lasting autonomy of up to 1 hour. It is very easy to handle and when you finish cleaning you can leave it in its charging station located on the wall. 

Its suction capacity is one of the best and it has a  very reasonable tank of 760 ml.

It does not have a bag, so it is easy to clean. You just have to take out the brush to wash it and remove the accumulated hair of your pet. It includes other useful accessories for home and car cleaning. 

Guide to choosing the best broom vacuum for pets

A broom vacuum cleaner is one of the most important tools for maintaining your home. It can help you clean up any mess your pets have left behind.

But there are many different types of vacuum cleaners on the market, and it can be difficult to choose the one that best suits your needs. So, in this guide, I try to help you decide which one is right for you and your pet’s needs.

Advantages of a broom vacuum cleaner for pets

The broom vacuum cleaner for pets is a product that has many advantages over traditional ones: 

  • Freedom of movement: The main advantage is that you can easily move anywhere without the need for a plug nearby. Although autonomy can be a handicap. Many models like the Rowenta allow you to purchase an external battery if you need more autonomy so that it can easily adapt to any need.
  • Very light and comfortable to use: When you want to clean only a small area, it is very annoying to have to take out the household vacuum cleaner, which is heavier and more laborious. With the small broom or handheld vacuum, you can suck up hair, food, or sand from your pet quickly and easily. 
  • There are no wires to trip over: If you have pets, you know that they tend to roam around the house while you clean. As well as, you have to be aware that they do not damage the cable. In addition, it usually generates fewer vibrations than conventional ones, so it scares pets less. 
  • For the whole home and car: On many occasions, our pets come with us in the car and can leave hair on the seats. You can use the handheld vacuum to clean the upholstery after the trip. Many accessories for the rest of the house are also usually included. Probably, one of the things that I like the most is that you can vacuum under beds, sofas, or furniture without having to bend down since it normally flexes. 
  • Easy to clean filters and brushes: Finally, it is important to mention that in this type of vacuum cleaner, both the filter and the tank and the rollers are easily removed, being able to clean them under water in most cases.

What should be considered to choosing the best broom vacuum cleaner for pets?

Not all vacuum cleaners are suitable for vacuuming pet hair, three fundamental things must be met: have a  special brush for collecting it, a  roller that does not get clogged with accumulated hair, and a  filter that can trap the smallest particles. 

Now, to choose the best vacuum cleaner, you have to detail these and other important aspects to take into account. Next, I expose the ones you should always keep in mind when choosing: 


You cannot expect the power of a broom vacuum cleaner to be as high as that of a conventional one, since these models aim to gain mobility. If you want a vacuum cleaner with a great suction capacity, I recommend that you buy a cable vacuum cleaner like the Cecotec on the list. 

If you prefer to get decent power, but that it is a cordless vacuum cleaner, it is convenient that it has at least 22 v; the more you have, the better the dirt absorption usually is. However, like the watts of an electrical device, this measurement is relative, since it must be taken into account that it is not directly proportional to the suction capacity. For this reason, some models such as the AEG or the Bosch have only 18v, but their suction level is higher than in other versions with a higher amount of voltage. 

Tank capacity

tank capacityAs with power, this type of vacuum cleaner has a smaller tank than normal ones, so that it remains light and manageable

You can find many different sizes, depending on what you need. If you have several pets and they have long hair, it is advisable to choose at least 700 ml, so that you do not have to constantly empty it and you can do a more comfortable cleaning. Although you should keep in mind that being larger usually weighs a little more.  

Filter system

Filter systemIn all vacuum cleaners, the filter is a very important part, because it helps expel cleaner air and retain the smallest dust particles. But in this specific case in which you vacuum pet hair, I would say that it is even more relevant because it can reduce bad odors, and the better it is, the less hair will return to the environment through the expulsion of air from the device. 

If you are allergic to any type of mite, it is highly recommended that you purchase a model with a  HEPA filter that ensures you retain at least 99% of the particles. Be careful: keep in mind it’s cleaning, and avoid direct contact with dust as much as possible. 

Integrated rollers

integrated rollersThe roller is a fundamental part of any pet broom vacuum cleaner, especially if your animal has long and dense hair.

The most advisable models are those that have rollers that are easy to remove and clean. Also, it prevents the hair from rolling up and preventing you from continuing to clean.

In these cases, versions such as the Shark or AEG analyzed are very useful, because they cut the hair to absorb it later and take it to the deposit. 


vacuum AccessoriesDepending on the areas you want to clean, you may be more or less interested, but the one you should not forget is the brush to collect animal hair. All of the ones on the list have one, although they can vary in design or pickup shape. It is advisable to clean it regularly so that clogging does not occur and reduces the performance of the device. 

You can find brushes of all kinds for the home, such as upholstery, furniture, or parquet, but also for the car, such as the Bosch, which includes a flexible tube to clean between the seats. Very practical if you usually take your pets in the vehicle.
