Anyone own a Dyson Animal Vac?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I am going to purchase a Dyson Animal Vac this weekend, hopefully. I have been looking and there are two versions. The 07 model and the 14 model, anyone know the difference? They look a little different. Not sure which one to get. If anyone out there has one I'd love it if I could get some reviews from some cat owners. Thanks!

There IS a vaccuum meant for cat fur??? Where are these sold and how much does it cost? I am very interested in this..

I have the 07 model,but not the animal one. It works great. It picks up a lot of hair. My Labrador sheds a lot and it has no problems with the hair. My ragdoll cat has very cotton like hair and have to move the vacuum over that a few more times. It is like glued to the furniture and carpet-lol

Found a link online and it looks like it'd cost about $500 to get one vaccuum??????????????????????? Please say that's not so!

Animal Dyson

My sister owns the animal dyson and she thinks that it is great! I just have the DC05 one with turbo brush and that works really well If ever I needed a new one I would get the animal one but I am hoping that it won't be for some time cos mines only just over 1 year old.

IMO, they are well worth the money

I have bought so many cheap vacuums and its time for something that will last, hopefully. I dont have carpet in my house, we took all that out and its hardwood and ceramic tile. I vacuum everyday, I have alot of cats and right now I'm using a shop vac with a floor attachment. It has great suction but its so big and loud. I dread it everyday. Last December we bought a Hoover that useless and I got the bright idea to use the shop vac, it holds tons of stuff but too big for a house. I hopefully will have new Dyson by Saturday, just cant figure out which one to get.

I have the all floors 07- the gray and blue one. They are expensive,but suppose to last and the filters never need changing. You just clean them very 6 months. I would say they are definitely worth the money. I have had my for over 3 years now and never had a problem

My MIL gave us a Dyson Animal vac for Xmas last year and I love it! It's wonderful! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!

You might want to read the reviews on www.epinions.com - many good reviews, but some negative ones from people who have owned their vaccuums for a year or more.

I do and I love mine! I wouldn't trade if for anything.

I don't have the animal vac - as at the time the only difference between them was an extra powerd connection for the animal. My yellow Dyson works just great - and we use it at least once a day - between cat hair, bird feathers, cat food and bird food. It does one heck of a good job!

I find our central vac picks up the hair quite well. It has excellent suction. I even vacuum Bijou with the small brush and he loves it.

lol I can't imagine trying to vacuum Guinness After about a year of owning my Dyson he is just about managing to walk past it when it's turned OFF without freaking out. He is knowhere to be seen when it's turned ON! He is so scared of it!

I thought about getting one the next time Sears has a 0% financing offer. I always wondered how well they worked. My little, light weight vacuum is nice because it's so easy to carry, but it never gets all of the cat fur and hay.

We have the low reach Dyson w/ the 14 ft telescoping reach and love it!

we have the purple animal dyson. It is fantastic, great at picking up the fur from the dogs and cats, also the general every day stuff. The only thing that I dont like about it is it leaves a line in the carpet were its been, but I think that this is more about my type of carpet than the dyson.Ours cost $750. I have owned around 8 vacuums in my time but they were all cheap ones less than $100.So hope that this one lasts for years and years.

We have a Dyson too! Sadly after about 7 years it is starting to get a bit slack...This time last year though I just couldn't stop raveing about it! It has lasted as well for the price we paid.

I prefer cansister models over upright models. I don't have a Dyson but would love to have one. Does anyone own a Dyson canister model? If so, does it work as well as the upright? My Euerka Europa does seem to do a good job with cat hair though.

Sam, maybe the brushes just need to be replaced?


I don't own a Dyson myself, but after reading about how wonderful they are, I'll have to think about getting one sometime in the future.

Lorie, do you mean the attachment brushes? If so we don't use them anyway.

My mom bought a Dyson upright about a month ago. I don't know what model it is, but it was $475 on sale, and she's thrilled with it. She has two dogs, a cat, and a bird, and her asthma has been much better since she got the vacuum.

im saving to get one right after xmas when the sales are on

We've been thinking about getting one of those, too. I had a Eureka Boss that I thought worked okay (worked as well as all other bag-vacs I've had), but then I found a Fantom on sale a few years ago. I'll never go back to a bagged-vac again!!! The Fantoms aren't nearly as expensive, so I'm wondering what the differences are. I would think any bagless would out-perform any bagged vac, by a lot.

Anyway, my next-to-new Eureka wouldn't pick up the fuzz balls that came off my new electric blanket... the Fantom sucked 'em right up!

No, I mean the brushes on the underside of the vacuum cleaner. Those brushes help pull dirt out of the carpet fibers.

My MIL has the Animal Dyson.
When she bought it, she vacuumed her entire house with her 'old' heppa vac.
Them she vacuumed the entire house with her Dyson, the Dyson had to be emptied twice before she finished.
We were all very impressed.

My Mum has a Dyson animal vac and its great, does the job brilliantly. She owns two white longhaired dogs so I'm sure it would be perfect for cat fur as well!!
