Top experts praised the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+, recommending it for all surfaces as well as stairs and cars. They were pleased with its outstanding suction power, portable design, and moderately sized dirt compartment.

However, they were unimpressed by its non-HEPA filter and miserable 11-minute battery life.

Unlike most handheld models, this device has a large 0.4L dirt compartment. Continue reading our Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ review below and browse our Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium-Ion Hand Handheld Cordless Vacuum review if you prefer a dedicated handheld device for pet hair.

Consensus

our Verdict

Experts praised the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+, praising its performance on hard floors and carpets. Weighing just 2.27 lbs, this vacuum proved to be portable, and editors at Trusted Reviews recommended it for stairs and vehicles.

Consumer Reports praised its moderately-sized 0.4L dust cup, Check out the Shark Vertex Lightweight Cordless review for a bigger 0.7L dirt chamber.

The Pet Pro+ comes with an effective turbo brush, and reviewers lauded its 5.26 kPA tested suction power. It removed an incredible 100% of the pet hair on low-pile carpets and hard floors.

Large debris pickup tests revealed an excellent 100% cleaning rate on bare floors and 89% on carpets. It has a moderate tested noise rating of 71.8 dBA. However, stick vacuum enthusiasts can consider the Shark Rocket Pet Pro with MultiFlex IZ163 review.

Tests revealed a poor battery life of just 11 minutes and a lack of an anti-allergy HEPA air filter. Check out the Wyze Handheld vacuum review if you require an anti-allergy HEPA filter.

The Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ and the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro are very similar with both models featuring a lightweight handheld design with a 0.4L dirt compartment. Unlike the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro, however, the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ (this review) comes with a pet turbo brush.
