My vacuum just died today, motor burned up, man was that stinky. I need something that can handle the hair load and dirt of 5 dogs. Reading this thread I see that many people really like the shark navigator. I've never had a bagless before so I wondering a few things. They use a filter. For those that use this style how often do you have to buy a new one, and are they expensive? I see the sharks filter is washable, is washing really effective or is it better to just buy a new one?
I've been reading up on review, pros and cons of bag vs. bagless, but it gets so mindboggling so I was hoping actual advice from dog people would be better.
I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my navigator. The filters can be washed, and I've not replaced any yet. If you've never had a bagless -- they are a pain to empty...dust and hair everywhere. Dump them DEEP in a garbage bag or outside, and be prepared to get yourself dusty. However, I noticed that with a bag vacuum, after a couple weeks the bag was not full, but I was smelling dog-smell when I vacuumed. I now know that is because the odor from the bag was seeping out. To stop that, I would have had to change bags weekly. With the bagless, although they are a pain, every sweep is fresh as long as you empty the cup after each sweep....definitely worth the extra effort.
Also, they are very light-weight and easy to push.

Just wanted to say that I'm glad this thread was started and that so many people gave helpful advice. I now have a new vacuum, Shark Navigator Lift Away. Love it so far, it sucks up everything in sight. Literally the first time I used it, I never thought I had that much dog hair laying around. It was disgusting how much hair and dirt was picked up; looked like I had never vacuumed before. Plus its light weight, and easy to clean
Look out dust bunnies, here I come!
