EDITOR’S NOTE: Read our complete review of the pet stick vacuum here

I was this many days old when I learned there was such a thing as a pet vacuum.

When I first discovered this, I asked my wife, “Have you ever heard of a pet stick vacuum before?”

“Errr …. no,” she said. My wife has lived in homes with pets her whole life.

It turns out that pet vacuums are a thing, and not a small one. Pets tend to put out more of some things than your typical human, and one of those is fur. If you have, say, a cat or dog, you already know that fur is the ever-present thing. On carpet, fur gets tangled in. On hardwood floors, you’ll likely find tufts of fur in corners alongside the dust bunnies. That fur is not easy to remove, and can get tangled up in a vacuum.

Pet vacuums are engineered to be better at picking up fur, primarily, but they also claim to be better at picking up things like dander and dirt. Whether or not they’re actually better at this is a matter of debate, but suffice to say that pet vacuums claim to be.

Also, just to be clear: for the most part, pet vacuums are marketed as vacuums for pet households, not a second vacuum to be used in addition to your normal vacuum. Most pet vacuums are full-service vacuums that can do the regular job, but are supposed to be better at handling the large fur load.

Pet vacuums are not hard to find, especially in big box and hardware stores. In 2023, Aldi — which has sold many standard vacuums over the years — debuted its own version of a stick pet vacuum.

What We Know:

Ambiano Corded Pet Stick Vacuum

The Ambiano Corded Pet Stick Vacuum (Product Code: 709718) is an Aldi Find. It’s only in stores for a limited time, and once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to get it again until it comes back, whenever that might be. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products not in stock at your local store.

At the time of this post, the Aldi vacuum costs $29.99. That’s a fraction of the cost for pet stick vacuums I see online.

The vacuum is 600 W and comes with a floor brush, crevice tool, and pet accessory.

What We Don’t Know:

We’ve had mixed experiences with Aldi vacuums — some good, some not so good — but we have not yet tried out this one, so we have no idea how well it works. We’ve created this open thread for users to share experiences.

Have you tried Aldi’s pet vacuum? Let us know about it in the comments.

  1. Weakest link usually the battery. Replacements questionable after time. A reason to go with an established integrated organization with a parts dept.

    • I totally agree with you about the battery and going with an established company, however, this vacuum is corded….. i wouldn’t buy it unless i saw at least several positive reviews which I doubt we will see since this product is totally new….

  2. Had shark cordless stick vacuum. Didn’t work very long and wasn’t worth the money. New battery pac when out of warranty not worth it. I’d only get corded ones ever again. At least if you paid the electric bill it works

  3. I bought a brand new one today and the telescoping stick will not stay in place. It does not click into place when assembling it to the vacuum head. I literally just opened it. Everything else seems to work fine, but it is impossible to use if the stick won’t stay in place because every time, you try to pull backwards to vacuum it falls out. I guess I am returning it tomorrow. Thank God I kept the receipt!

  4. Bought it, used it three times, and returned it. Incredibly loud, cord is too short, it didn’t pick up a lot, and the small pet brush attachment didn’t rotate.

  5. Bought it. The main attachment does not stay on, but I made a band-aid fix with some duct tape. I just read Joshua’s comment, so I’ll look for the gray connector piece. My vacuum has a cord and is not chargeable. Despite these issues, it worked very well on carpet and on tile. It’s a quick way to get some quick cleaning done. It’s also very convenient. I’m keeping this downstairs for quick touch ups.

    • I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and agree it’s good for quick cleaning. I use it on carpet, hardwood, and vinyl floors. The floor brush piece (shown on the vacuum in the photo above) is good at picking up hair (especially long hair from humans in the house) without the hair getting wrapped up on a roller brush.
