I bought the Dyson DC 17 Animal on 5/16. I have been buying a new vacuum ever 1 to 2 years since I have had my 2 corgis. I finally decided to take my sister's advice and buy a Dyson. She has had her Dyson for 6 years and she has many pets and 3 kids. I have never been so impressed with ANY vacuum we have owned. There was so much hair it picked up it is not even funny. The amount of dust, dirt and silt in my carpet was shameful. I allowed another of my sisters to borrow it and a friend as well. BOTH now are saving up to buy one. I can not say enough about this vacuum. The design makes it so easy to use. It doesn't seem to be self propelled, but it doesn't need to be. Its SO easy to use my 2 year old nephew was pushing it around. I have no cobwebs corners now thanks to the extension hose feature on it. I even vacuumed the lamp shades with the upholstery tool. I vacuumed the fans using the little brush attachment. I read other reviews bashing their customer service, but when I called in to register my Dyson I had almost no wait time and they were VERY friendly. Best $$ I ever spent toward a cleaner house.

We have four Austealian Shepherds and lots of fur...365 days a year. The Animal is able to keep up. In the eight years I have owned this machine, it has been to the repair shop only twice. Prior to this, I was replacing the competitor's vacuum every two years. I am only sorry Dyson doesn't make this model any longer.

Amazing vacuum! I love it! It is light and easy to maneuver. It picks up so much dirt my other vacuums have left behind. I have two dogs and it takes care of that. It is also good on my wood floors. My other vacuum left wheel marks on the wood, but this one rolls on the wood floor surface smoothly and without scratching. Also, the soft bristles on the rotator do not scratch the floor. I like the attachments and where they are stored. I usually have such issues with other vacuums with the attachments falling off and loosing them. These are stored securely and out of the way. The vacuum attachment is real good for high up areas. It easily come up and you can vacuum fans, curtains, etc... things that you have to reach for. For simple pick up that are on the floor, close to the vacuum, you have to take out the extension wand and hook up the attachment directly to the hose. This is a little inconvenient. Other than this, I enjoy having this vacuum and enjoy my clean carpets and wood floors!

I thought I had a good vacuum cleaner, but when the belt broke I decided it was time to replace the entire vacuum instead of the belt. I have a white cat and green carpet and needless to say the cat hair was always visible. When I came across the reviews regarding the Dyson DC Animal vacuum, I decided this was the vacuum I should buy despite it's price. I was absolutely amazed at the amount of cat hair and dust that this vacuum removed from my carpet. It far surpassed my old vacuum that I THOUGHT was so good. Recently I was thinking of removing the carpet because of the cat hair and the fact that my husband suffers with COPD. But, now my carpet looks new again and I believe with regular vacuuming, this machine will get more dust out of my carpet. It's very easy to empty the bin and I love the fact that the bin is clear and I can see all the dust and hair filling it up. It's somewhat heavy to pick up, but it very easily glides across the carpet. I am very pleased with my Dyson.

I was skeptical 6+ years ago when my husband brought this vacuum home, but I ended up loving it. It's always done a great job keeping up with 3 dogs, 2 cats and 3 kiddos. I would recommend this brand again and again. I've never worried about whether or not it was getting deep down in my carpets, clean up was more than reasonable and so easy. It has only been in the last few months that my poor, old machine has hit the end of its life, and I was bummed when it did, but I went out and replaced it with yet another Dyson. I tried every brand under the sun and was replacing vacuums way too frequently before purchasing my Animal. Thank you Dyson for making a product worth coming back to. I will never own another brand again!

We decided to get the Dyson Animal DC 17 and all I can say is WOW. This machine is killer, we just had a baby and with 2 larger dogs, a shep/border collie mix who sheds tons year round and a Carolina Dog who has 2 huge sheds a year, we didn't want to let the baby on the floor due to all the fur. Our current vacuum a bissel stopped working period. It was always getting clogged and finally lost all suction power. We could run the vacuum over our carpet and not be able to tell we had vacuumed. All the dog hair was still there. Didn't look like it even touched the hair, when we got home with our new vacuum my husband gave me the option of vacuuming myself or letting him do it but I would have to take care of the baby. I was excited to see how well it worked and to try it out myself. I HATE vacuuming so I think he was a little surprised I said I wanted to vacuum. This vacuum is heavy but it glides very nicely along the carpet. Easier than our bissel which is much lighter! After doing just a little 4x4 section the dirt cup was already full! The vacuum was sucking so hard it was pulling all the carpet fibers up and fluffing the carpet at the same time. Our carpet is very old and run down and this vacuum revived our old carpet. Not only that but it got up every bit of dog hair on the carpet! Seriously I crawled around on the floor looking for dog hair and couldn't find any! AMAZING! Now I will have no hesitation in letting the baby crawl on the floor when he's old enough! The vacuum also came with 2 bags of Zorb wet powder. I've read on other reviews that it will even take up stains but it didn't do that for mine. However it did brighten up the carpet and make the stains look lighter. To be fair our stains are very old and set in. All in all I LOVE this vacuum and have become obsessed with it. I keep playing with it to see what else I can clean with it! I love this vacuum!

Our Dyson Animal works fine mostly but it has a few surprising shortcomings. 1) the gray plastic finish was chipped on its second use. This was a surprise for such an expensive machine. 2) If there is a convenient way to carry it up / down the stairs, we haven't found it. It's really awkward. 3) It doesn't like anything that has a vertical dimension. For example, if there is crumbled cookie on the carpet, the head of the machine will actually push the larger pieces out of the way instead of vacuuming them up. I've learned that you have to go around the crumbles and PULL the machine over them. This applies to bits of folded paper, small particles of packaging material -- anything that doesn't lay completely flat on the carpet. Cleaning out the canister is a new task which is best done outside. I can't believe we spent this much on a vacuum cleaner that doesn't include a light! The onboard tools are helpful and its appearance is incredibly cool for a vacuum cleaner. It's clearly innovative; I'm just not sure it's superior.

This is my second Dyson. What can I say other than they are the best vacuums ever!! The only reason for me needing another is that I wanted to try the new Cinetic Animal Allergy model. I have the original Animal (without the ball) and it still works great after over 6+ years. But this new one is awesome. As I tell anyone that asks about it, "it would suck the paint off a wall". It's that powerful. I have two Rottweilers and this cleans my carpet like no other. I actually enjoy vacuuming as I love to see the carpet look like it's brand new (and it's over 5 years old). I am expecting my first grandchild in the fall and feel comfortable that she will be able to crawl around a CLEAN floor after vacuuming with my Dyson. I would recommend this, and I already do, to anyone that asks. Even sometimes to people that I see looking for vacuums in the store. Nothing better than a firsthand testimonial, I always say. Dyson will always be #1 in my house.

Had been considering for several years to buy a Dyson after using a friends. I immediately saw a difference from what I was used to with my Kirby when I tried my friends Dyson. Considered it for several years and there is soooo much that makes the Dyson MUCH better. I first vacuumed with my Kirby (which probably isn't working up to par as it could use servicing) when I got home before trying the Dyson. First round through the living room picked up a decent amount my KIRBY was leaving behind (much dog hair and a lot of dirt/dust). I love how everything is right on the machine. The hose and attachments are so easy to remove for quick use (Kirby's is a chore), the couch was so much easier to clean and cleaned great and quick. THe stairs weren't too bad. Only complaint...although the hose extends far, it's tight and you have to constantly be using some muscle to keep it pulled out (hopefully in time it will loosen up). I ended up doing a run over the carpet again before going to bed (the dogs got some toy stuff on the floor)...ended up doing the whole carpet again and pulled up a good deal more hair/dirt. I expect it's compacted some (although I don't really see it) and as the fibers loosen I will have it all out after a few run overs. I think it's too soon to comment on if it's worth the money or not. In the long run if it continues to perform and not have problems, I will say then the price was fair. My Kirby did not maintian performance, required bags and was a pain in the rear to change to the hose attachment. Everything I did not like about my Kirby is correct in my new Dyson. Great working machine!

We just purchased this vacuum and all I can say is AMAZING!!!! I only wish I had purchased it years ago. After reading all of the reviews we could not wait to put it through it's paces. We have a Siberian Husky and a Golden Retriever - talk about hair... First we vacuumed with our old Hoover Wind Tunnel, which we thought did a good job; Boy, were we surprised when we went back over the carpet with the Dyson - it was truly amazing how much more hair and dust we got out of the carpet (Berber, by the way) and it worked great (didn't pull the Berber loops like I read in another review). So, we continued with every room in the house - it never lost suction and pulled up more dirt and pet hair that you would have never know was there. We had no problem doing all the stairs - the wand hose was more than long enough that we didn't have to carry the vacuum along. We really liked the "beater brush" attachment for the furniture - never clogged like the one for the Hoover. All in all I would recommend this vacuum to anyone, pets or no pets.
