Hair, there and everywhere: it’s the messy reality of being a pet owner. Considering how much maintenance a household with dogs and cats requires, is there any reason to still be lugging around a heavy upright or canister vacuum? Give your back a break already and invest in a robot vacuum!
Walmart happens to have a serious sale going on, and it includes all the most respected names in smart robot vacuums — Roomba, Eufy and Shark, to name a few. The best five of the bunch are designed specifically to banish pet hair. The savings are incredible, too — up to $190 off. That's a 63 percent discount.
Plus, if you want to score free shipping make sure you’re signed up for Walmart+. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, and a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
We cherry-picked these five fully vetted, top-rated robot vacuums you can score for a steal right now at Walmart, starting with the Eufy RoboVac 25C by Anker. It's an incredibly smart and shockingly efficient smart device, and it's our top pick for pet owners, paws down. Right now at Walmart, this Eufy is over $120 off — down from $250 to just $129.
This robo vac doesn't just do the cleaning for you; it does the thinking too. It uses Eufy’s patented BoostIQ technology to navigate your house, from hardwood floors to rugs and beyond, with smooth transitions. It never loses suction, but if it senses the need for extra power, it amps up to get the job done. Pet owners are thrilled, to say the least.
"I absolutely love this item," raved a five-star reviewer. "It picks up so much dust and hair (I have seven pets and I'm amazed...). It knows when it's about to bump into something and turns itself before it goes into a wall or door. I highly recommend this machine if you are too busy or tired to vacuum."
Another pet owner praises the Eufy RoboVac 25C: "It is a game changer for picking up my dog's hair from the floor and carpet," shared the shopper.
The Eufy is super slim, so it’s a ninja when it comes to getting into every crevice and corner — and it has an infrared sensor for identifying obstacles. You can even program it to clean while you’re out making a supermarket run.
And you won’t have to worry about the Eufy RoboVac 25C taking a tumble while you’re out — it has a drop-sensing feature to avoid falls. This model has all the bells and whistles you'd want, including an anti-scratch top to keep it looking like new.
Did we mention this over half off deal also includes a remote, an AC power adapter, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, a 12-month warranty and more? The charging base is included, of course, and your robovac knows how to use it.
"So far I am loving my Eufy RoboVac 25C! It seems to get most of the house and under tight spaces (dresser, nightstand, bed) with no difficulty," wrote a five-star reviewer. "I have it running on schedule while I’m at work and when I get home my floors are clean and the vac is resting nicely in its charging dock."
Now's your chance to save $121 on a lean, mean cleaning machine. Don’t let this deal pass you by!
The owner of a retirement home in central Newfoundland says the COVID-19 situation inside his facility is dire — and he believes it's time for the regional health authority to call in outside help. Shane Penney, who owns Springdale Retirement Living together with his wife, told CBC News that 19 out of 90 residents and 17 out of 35 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19, and more test results are pending. "It's very, very serious; very busy at our facility," Penney said on Tuesday. Penne
CHARLOTTETOWN — It was during the holiday break that something awful started happening to the crows that frequent Victoria Park in downtown Charlottetown. Since then, local residents have found more than 200 dead or desperately ill birds. Scientists at the nearby Atlantic Veterinary College haven't been able to figure out what is going on. "It was pretty gruesome," Maryrose Carson, who lives two blocks from the waterfront park, said Tuesday as she recalled finding dozens of dead birds on Jan. 1.

Flossey is living a wonderful life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. It's what is knows an "ethical farm" where cows have space to roam and graze instead of being kept indoors for most of their lives. Flossey's farm has vast expanses of lush, green grass, rolling hills, ponds full of fresh water, and forested areas for shade. This is life as it should be for these gentle creatures. Dave is a farm hand who often helps out with some of the chores and animal care. He decided to take a break on this warm, summer day and he took a seat on the hill overlooking the pasture.
Mal Isaac, a venerable mainstay in Regina sports broadcasting, died Saturday. He was 84. He leaves behind his wife, Vivian, three children and eight grandchildren, whom he absolutely adored according to his son, Scott. Isaac began broadcasting when he was 21 and worked at several outlets before landing at CBC Saskatchewan, where he worked from the 1970s to the mid-'90s. Scott said he was aware of his father's career, but to them he was always just "Dad," and a great one at that. He recalls his f
Students at Concordia University of Edmonton are upset the school has eliminated the week-long semester break following a two-week faculty strike. An online petition with over 1,800 signatures as of Monday asks that the institution reconsider reducing the semester winter break from a full week to the Family Day long weekend. Christine Ryvers, a student in her last semester of an education after-degree program, started the petition. She said plans with family or vacations will be dashed for many
Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole reacted Monday to news Canada approved the Pfizer COVID-19 antiviral treatment Paxlovid, saying the shipment of 30,000 treatment courses was “insufficient.” O’Toole said the government needs to “dramatically ramp up” the number of pills on order and get them out to the provinces immediately.

Nygard, who once ran his international fashion business from Winnipeg, is charged with six counts of sexual assault and three of forcible confinement related to six people in Toronto. Ontario justice of the peace John Scarfe denied Nygard's request for bail Wednesday during a virtual hearing, which Nygard attended over Zoom from the Toronto South D
EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has relieved Justice Minister Kaycee Madu of his duties after it came to light that Madu called Edmonton’s police chief about a traffic ticket. Kenney says while all parties agree Madu never asked Chief Dale McFee to cancel the ticket last March, there’s a bigger issue at play. “It's essential the independent administration of justice is maintained,” Kenney said in an announcement on Twitter late Monday. “That's why I will appoint a respected independent i

A restaurant in central Alberta was ordered closed to indoor dining last week after an Alberta Health Services investigation found it accepting dog photos in lieu of vaccination proof. The order was issued to The Granary in Red Deer on Jan. 14. Following complaints to an AHS executive officer, two test shoppers were sent to the restaurant on Jan. 11 at different times. Both were able to enter and dine after presenting a photograph of a dog and personal identification to staff, according to the o
TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford says the province is set to make an announcement later this week about reducing COVID-19 restrictions. He told Ottawa radio station CFRA today that he hates putting the public health measures in place and that there will soon be some positive news on that front. The government announced on Jan. 3 that, due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant driving up COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations, restrictions would be placed on businesses until at least J
