I have a black lab and beige carpet and my Hoover Windtunnel works great.

I've heard that Dyson vacs are the best for pet hair, but I don't have a link handy.

I have a Fantom Thunder and a very hairy Golden Retriever and long-haired cat. It works really well on the carpet, not so much on the furniture. I end up using a lint roller on the furniture to get all the hair up.

I have a Dirt Devil upright bagless with a HEPA filter. It cleaned up all of the animal hair from the previous tenant. She had about a dozen cats roaming the house before we moved in, and never cleaned the floors once. Click here to enlarge
I would recommend spending the extra on a Dyson. I notice that my Dirt Devil loses suction very frequently because the HEPA filter gets clogged up. It's really a pain in the ass.

Miele cat and dog vacuum, had mine 8 years now and it still lifts the carpet on full power. had a Dyson before that but it fell to bits not impressed with build quality, German Mielle much better IMO.

Don't hold the nozzle against the dog as it took me ages to get Sook out of the vac and it sucked all her hair off - anyone seen a bald GSD/Whippet cross!
