Random Question: Have You Ever Tried to Vacuum Your Dog?

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

So here's a random tool we think would be a brilliant addition to our spring cleaning repertoire: the Dyson Groom—a $70 attachment that lets us vacuum our dog (Hero, a red Australian Cattle Dog). The Groom's stainless steel bristles help comb out loose hairs and dead skin and, with the flick of a button, the shed fur is swooped into the vacuum chamber. Good for allergy sufferers, your upholstery, and your clothes. Seriously, we're going to save a fortune on lint rollers this season.

Check out the R&D video, above, which features lots of cute dogs getting vacuumed. And then a close-up demo video after the jump.

And here's the Groom attachment in action:
