    I have developed back problems and need a break from the floor upkeep. No vacuum or sweeping allowed for 8 weeks. Can you imagine what the floors would look like - it would be like Sheltie carpet.

    Looking at a Roomba Pet, but want to know if it can survive not just pet hair, but Sheltie hair!

    Any experience, good or bad?

    UPDATE:
    Apparently, the 860 has an option with tangle free rollers! I would opt for that in a heartbeat!

    We use the tangle free as shown above and it sure picks up more Sheltie (and Aussie) hair than regular conventional vacuuming. It will completely fill up once per charge. About once every two weeks we have to take the rollers, wheel, etc out and remove the hair wrapped around them, but that is a simple 3 minute process.
