Even when the unit works, reviewers say the PetVac collects only small amount of pet hair, suggesting that it isn't doing a good job. A professional groomer that tested the PetVac for Pittsburgh's KDKA says, "I think it's a waste of money... a hairbrush would get that much hair out and in quicker time."

A reporter at KGO tests the PetVac at a San Francisco pet boutique. Most of the dogs seem frightened by the rubber device, and the professional groomers say regular brushes are a better grooming tool.

Yvonne Zanos,

A pet groomer tries out the PetVac on a cat and dog that are accustomed to professional grooming. She says the vac is noisy and doesn't pick up all that much pet hair. Her verdict: "I think it's a waste of money... a hairbrush would get that much hair out and in quicker time. On a rate of 1 to 10, I would give it a minus 1."

In its test of the PetVac, a WICU reporter echoes the conclusions of other reviewers: This gizmo is too noisy for nervous pets, and even when it seems like it's doing a good job, a quick check of the attached vacuum shows that it picks up only small amounts of pet hair.
