Top 5 Robot Vacuums for Pets

The future is here, and with it, comes a rise in the use of robot vacuums. Gone are the days of cutting out an hour to manually vacuum the house. Now all you have to do is start your vacuum and relax while it does all the work on its own. These vacuums are especially handy for customers with beloved pets of the furry variety. If you choose the right vacuum, it can easily free your living room from those layers of cat and dog dander. Here are a few of the best models of robot vacuums for households with pets.

1. Neato Botvac D5 Connected Navigating Robot Vacuum – Pet & Allergy

The Bovac D5 Connected robot vacuum actually specializes in pet and allergy. It’s ideal for households with pets because of its combination brush, extra large dirt bin, high performance filter, and side brush to sweep up dirt, dust, and pet dander that gets stuck in tight corners. It uses laser smart navigation scans to create a path to clean the whole floor, and when it’s finished, it returns to its base to charge automatically. With the addition of the Neato App, you can use “find me!” to locate the vacuum if you ever have trouble finding it.

2. Roomba 880

The Roomba 880 is one of the easiest options for cleaning up pet hair because rather than using bristles that have to be thoroughly cleaned afterward, it uses a specific AeroForce system that catches fine dirt, dust, and pet hair. Without bristles, the pet hair is much less likely to clump and clog, which tends to be the downfall of the Roomba 880’s competitors. It uses sensors to trace its path around the room in order to thoroughly clean up to 3 rooms before needing to charge again.

3. iLife A4 Robot Vacuum Cleaner

With a 3 step cleaning system and a powerful motor, the iLife A4 misses nothing, even when cleaning up after the shaggiest dog. You can set this vacuum to one of two cleaning modes, general or MAX, depending on how deep the cleaning you need might be. The battery lasts for over 120 minutes so it will clean as much of your house as possible before needing to charge. While the appeal of robot vacuums is the hands-off nature that allows you to relax while the vacuum directs itself, this vacuum does give the owner a bit more control through a remote control that will allow you to direct it to more problematic areas of the house. Sensors protect the vacuum from falling down the stairs and when it’s finished, it simply returns to its charger.

4. bObsweep PetHair Robot Vacuum Cleaner and Mop

Sometimes, it’s just best to go to a specialist. The bObsweep PetHair Robot Vacuum is created specifically for cleaning up pet hair and paw prints. This robot not only vacuums but sweeps and mops to ensure that your floor is thoroughly cleaned. You can set it to a personalized cleaning schedule so that you can keep your home clean without having to think about it at all and, like some of the others, when it’s finished, it automatically self-charges. The dustbin is the largest in the industry, 1 liter, and the filtration makes sure to remove allergens from the air that could be caused by pet hair.

5. Samsung VR9000 Powerbot Robotic Vacuum

Instead of a mapping system, the VR9000 Powerbot uses an online digital camera and sensors to guide its movements, so that it literally sees furniture and walls in order to avoid them, and with Easy Pass wheels, it moves easily from carpet to hardwood floors. It uses CycloneForce technology, heavy duty suction power and a combination brush to pick up dirt, dust, and dander without clogging or tangles. This vacuum also comes with a remote control, so if it ever loses direction, you can easily guide it back to the right place.


We may not have flying cars yet, but with robot vacuum cleaners, we do have the convenience of being able to keep a clean house while lying back and relaxing on the weekends. Now your favorite pets can also lay back and relax, knowing that these top robot vacuums will clean up any pet hair they leave behind with ease. Gone are the days of long sessions of spring cleaning, and gone are the worries that your house will smell like pets when your friends come to visit.
