The main reason to stick to the corded vacuum is the limitation of battery life in the cordless models. Most cordless models have a reasonable battery life, but this is to be taken with a pinch of salt. They are normally tested at low power with no mechanical head. So you need to knock that time down quite a bit. If you are going to just do regular small vacuums then a cordless model could be okay. But for most vacuuming it is still better to keep to the old fashioned corded models.
There are many vacuums that focus on cleaning up after pets. This is because pets create quite a mess. And hair is quite hard for a conventional hover to deal with. Using specialised motorised rotator brushes they lift hair out of carpets. Some vacuums have special features to make the clean up easier, and to get to more specific dirt, like dirt embedded in furniture. Pet vacuums are often iterations of regular versions, but include some extra attachments.
