best vacuum for dogs?

I am in need of a new vacuum cleaner and I need a professionals opinion. I have a lady that comes to clean my house each week but I don't want her to use her own vacuum because I have pets and I know it's hard on the equipment... I have replaced with just a hoover or bissel at least 1-2 times a year and at this point I'm weighing options on a shark or Dyson or whatever else would be comparable... I have 2 dogs (German shepherds) and keeping up with the hair on a daily basis is a necessity. I have no carpet at all. Stone flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms and 100+ year old hardwood floors in the rest of the house. And because it's so old there are a lot of rough areas or tiny crevasses where I need something strong to pull up dirt... if anyone has any suggestions on what would be best I would greatly appreciate it! Would prefer to have something that can easily get under furniture and maybe has a auto rewind cord as I'm unable to bend or move heavy things anymore but we can work around that if it's reliable enough to handle a lot fur for a few years! Thanks in advance!

Just to clarify, any professional cleaner that is an actual cleaner at all, services their vacuum daily or at the LEAST every few days. If they don't, they deserve to buy a new vacuum regularly. So there is no house in the world that should be too much for a professional cleaner using their own vacuum cleaner. Even a regular person that has dogs/cats needs to service their vacuum every time or every other time you vacuum. There is no vacuum that magically cleans itself. 99.999% of the vacuums people throw away are easily fixed with 3 minutes of work. I see vacuums all the time by trash cans and pick them up... bring them home.... unclog them & clean the beater bar and either use them or give to someone that needs one. I have about 10 in the garage right now that I fixed with 3 minutes of work.

With that said, all you need is a vacuum that is made for floors since you want to vacuum them. That means buy one that has the button so you can stop the beater bar when using it on a floor. No matter what brand you buy.... it won't clean itself.

You should be very careful while selecting the vacuum cleaner. A year back I got a vacuum from an unknown brand and after a few months it started loosing its power to suck the dust particles. Then I had to purchase another another vacuum cleaner. I bought a Rowenta cordless vacuum from a website of Toronto based company Vacmaster. It really works good. It removes the dust particles and pet’s fur from the furniture and floor. Since it’s a cordless vacuum, it cleans the edges and corners with an ease.

I don't vacuum their dogs--tend to get stuck in the hose.
