I love this vacuum! It gets all the dirt and crumbs that my lil ones leave behind! It came with so many lil tools that I don't even know what to do with them all! Best purchase made!

The vacuum does seem to do a very good job. I like the bagless dust collector. It's amazing how much dirt it picks up every time i vacuum. The thing I don't like is the hose. I guess in a way, it's sort of cool, when you let go of the hose, it all springs right back to the vacuum. However, that tight springness makes it very difficult to actually use the hose. You have to use one hand to hold on to the hose and the other hand to do the vacuuming.

I couldn't believe the amount of left over dirt and animal hair that was picked up by this machine, right after using my pricey "E..." canister vacuum. It is such a comfort to know my carpets will be thoroughly cleaned, quickly and efficiently. I really like seeing what all is suctioned out and deposited into the clear container. Really like the hot pink too.
We heard so many positive things about the Dyson brand so decided to take them to the test. Stairs were always a challenge. You can leave the vacuum at the bottom and vacuum all the stairs without dragging the unit with you. The Dyson picks up so much more dirt than our previous vacuum. Love the "ball" turning apparatus all the attachments that came with the Animal Complete.
This is a great vacuum over all but when you try to use the hose is when it becomes not so great. Pull the house out and try to use it and the vacuum will never stay standing
We have owned a Royal vacuum for 2o years. My friend bought a Dyson and loved it, so I could not wait to purchase one. My husband was reluctant to purchase this item. I used my points and caught a great sale! The Dyson Animal is AWESOME!! we have a golden retriever and a kitten, it is amazing how much hair and dust the Dyson is picking up each day! We truly vacuum the carpet every day now and it also has a floor mode, which we use on the wood floors!I Only wish I would have bought one sooner! The attachments are very easy to use as the hose is connected to the vacuum. Best household purchase!

This is an excellent machine. The carpet in my family room is very old and I didn't think anything could help it's look. Was I wrong.... I think it pulled 3 tanks of dust and dirt from the old thing. The entire room felt so much more clean. It is a little heavy, but as I use it, I am finding if I maneuver it correctly, I don't have to deal with the weight, it moves so easily with only a slight movement from me. We love it!
I recently upgraded my vacuum from a vacuum that I bought almost a year ago when I purchased my house. I've been wanting this vacuum for a while now and when I seen that it was on sale during the Black Friday sale I decided to buy it. It has great suction and it's very easy to push when vacuuming. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who has pets. It picks up the cat and dog hair so well and I love the tangle free turbine tool which I use to vacuum my couch. It also comes with a full 5 year warranty and the wand reaches far. I can leave the vacuum at the bottom of my steps and vacuum my whole entire set of stairs. This is just a great product.
I just tried this vacuum in my living room. It had only been a couple days since I last vacuumed, and I couldn't believe how much pet hair and dirt that my old vacuum missed!
I have two very heavy shedding Labs and this machine is hands down, the absolute best! It cuts vacuuming time on carpets in half and my house and car are finally dog hair free. Love it!!! I only wish I would have known about the dog grooming tool... it should be included.
The quality is just not what they say, and CERTAINLY not comparable to the price. I replaced an orrick I bought at ****** (WHICH I HATED) with this, with the hope that it was a TOP NOTCH Vacuum, and its just not. While I like its slightly better then the Orrick, the Orrick was $199.99, this was more than 3 Times that!!! The suction on this is just not that great either. I have a puppy, and some throw rugs, its takes many many passes to get the hair up, while the Orrick was MUCH fast.. The pluses here are the way the handheld part works.. Very cool, great useful attachments, and the ball is cool, easy to roll around. I've been VERY seriously considering taking it back and trying the Meile. Seems like a pain, but I can tell you that when the time comes not likely I'd buy another Dyson. If it was 300, MAYBE, but 700 with tax.. not a chance..
So far this device works very well, and I enjoy emptying the bin to see the amount of debris it picks up. It is just a bit tedious on carpeted stairs as the stair attachment is so small.

It worked great the first couple of times, then it jammed up. I cleaned the filters and everything and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't pick up like it did. Took me a long time to figure out that the hose clogged up with dog hair. Am a bit disappointed because I spent a lot of $$ on this vacuum because it was supposed to be great on picking up animal hair and not clogging.
I'll be the first to say that I'm not the guy that would normally take the time to write a review about a vacuum but here I am. The DC 41 is an incredible machine. You may think you have a clean house (I certainly thought I did). After using the vacuum, I found myself appalled at how much dust and dirt had be hiding in the carpet and furniture (after regular use of our previous vacuum). My family includes two children under 2 years old and we feel its a very small price to pay to give them a MUCH cleaner carpet surfact to play and occassionally face plant on! Thanks Dyson!
Quality product with powerful suction. Easy to assemble, use and clean. Cord should have a better angle as it interferes with vacuuming operation. Other vacuums have a molded notch in the handle to restrict cord's interference.
Taking time out of my crazy schedule to praise this Dyson Vacuum ! I was very apprehensive due to the purchase cost and poor quality of other models ....I have owned many but decided it was time to try the Dyson. One rug alone in my home was purchased for $1400.00 and I have 3 of them so I needed a vacuum to keep them in good condition as they cover my Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and I need something that could handle the edges when the carpets meet the floors . this Dyson is incredible , I thought that my rugs were clean , I seen no hair , dust etc.. after using my Turbo carpet cleaning head from my central vacuum but they just seemed faded looking , Then we brought home the Dyson DC41 last night unpacked it and started our test in one rug alone the entire canister was filled with dust and hair that was not visible before we started , my husband was stunned because he was in doubt of another pricey vacuum and this one excelled our expectations !!! Do not hesitate to make your purchase for you rugs, carpets and hardwood floors it can handle all of them .. if you think your home is clean just test this vacuum and you will be shocked to see the filth that can hide in plain site .. We are thrilled and will always own only a Dyson , thank you for designing this incredible quality vacuum .
very good vaccum in many ways, I am on my second one as I gave the first to our niece and its still going strong. However, they have some minor flaws that Dyson should address First, the older ones tend to blow dust and hair around rather than suck it towards the vaccuming. Once you get better used to how to use the machine you can avoid this most of the time, but its still annoying and takes longer. second, the ball can be stiff and hard to push, which I feel could scratch hardwood like on some of my floors. Third, the detachable hose isn't long enough and is stiff, kinks easy and hard to use. The older ones were shorter yet and nearly useless. Still, by far the best vacum I have had and far superior than the cheap knock-off shark I had that died after 2 years.
My dad always had another name brand vacuum so I thought when we moved to were the beach was with our 2 dogs and cat and get a vacuum like my fathers that would work. Well instead i got a Dyson Animal Complete knowing it would do great but boy it did EVEN better! We vacuumed at 3ft by 3ft square and the amount of dirt and hair it picked up WAS amazing! I will never go back to another vaccum and I informed my dad that his old vacuum needed to be upgraded.
As a cat owner I have my animals shaved, vacuum regularly 2x per week and the carpeting white and of a higher end cost. Smug in my belief My house was clean, when my machine broke I ordered 3 brands. The Dyson was a "no vacuum cleaner is worth $699 retail" unless I say it is challenge. After using this vacuum I felt I should be paying Dyson it out performs the imagination. It left me humbled by the amount of dirt it extracted even after testing the two others prior. The method of storage for the extension wand was a pleasant surprise and for those unhappy w/ its flexibility, with use it becomes more pliable. I would like to warn that this vacuums suction is VERY strong and if you have low end cost carpeting you risk fiber damage. Overall I'm pleased and confirm the product has met all of its intentions and applications,
