We've had our DC07 Animal for 10 years in a 3 story, carpeted house and a large labrador/ridgeback cross dog (plus a cat) that sheds 12 months of the year. We've cleaned the filter a couple of times and replaced lost spare brushes/attachments, and also cleaned out the main brush quite a few times which is to be expected and the vacuum has performed flawlessly throughout. I now use it from the back of the van on electrical install jobs as a site vacuum and it still works great (the good lady… Read Full Review

we have had our dyson for 8 1/2 almost 9 years and never took it to the shop. we love it and it has never lost suction. the reason I am writing this review is because we had it for 9 years with no complaints and it is the best vacuum ever. we have a 11 year old lab whippet mix that sheds a lot and it has never stopped working for any reason. I never want to get rid of it. I can safely say that it truly is a "no loss of suction vacuum!" we have like 13 stairs and we can leave it on the ground… Read Full Review

I highly recommend this vacuum! We have owned the Dyson DC07 animal for about four years now and we love it! We have two long-haired cats that shed fur like nobody's business so we vacuum quite often. I am very impressed that it has lasted this long. I would rather pay more money for a product that will last longer then have to buy a new vacuum every year or two. This is ultimately better for the environment and it saves me time from having to research products. Though I do have to admit… Read Full Review

I bought the cleaner approximately 2 years ago and made the purchase because i wanted a powerful and relible machine and i was lured in by the 'king of all vacuums' branding but my opinion: It's a useless pile of cr&p. Suction dies off very rapidly despite dismantling and cleaning the thing after every few times it's used. The 'No loss of suction' sticker has to be some kind of sick joke surely. The suction power has died off now to the point of this thing being fit only for landfil. One great… Read Full Review

Bought this to replace our Dyson DC01 a couple of years ago.It is quite heavy to use so may not suit an older person. We have a labrador who when he casts leaves hairs all over the place. The DC07 makes short work of picking up the hairs. Our house is a mix of carpets and hard wood flooring, so the hard floor setting is a must for us. The mini turbine head is brilliant for removing dust and hair from carpeted stairs. Our Dyson is used daily and we have had to have the motor & hose replaced but… Read Full Review

I bought the DC07 Animal about 6 years ago and, considering I paid £330 for it, expected a nice, reliable vacuum. I was trading up from a 5th-hand, 25 year old, bagged Panasonic, so I was really excited about my purchase.
This hoover is probably the worst purchase I have ever made! The pet turbo attachment blocked within two weeks, and I'd only used it four times! Okay, so I had long hair back then, but the only other furball in our house was a shorthaired cat, and she only ever stayed in the… Read Full Review

Hose is too short, cleaner is more flimsy than earlier Dyson cleaners (would not have thought THAT was possible!), the dust container is smaller than on any of the other Dyson cleaners that I have owned over the past 10 years (this is my 4th...), the brush bar defaults to ON when cleaner is turned off, it seems that the switch for the brushbar is attached, in some way, to the on/off switch, and this is very confusing when cleaning. The attached 'tools' are a joke, They are really not fit for… Read Full Review

I absolute love my Dyson Animal. Have had since they first went on sale. It gets beat up in a household with three cats, various pile of carpet, and wood floors. I have wooden stairs, so it gets carried up and down quite a bit with the hose stretched to the limit. I love that it is so easy to take the vacuum apart to clean and replace parts. I've had to replace both hoses now, but given the amount of use, I think that's perfectly acceptable. The canister gets held on with a bungie… Read Full Review

unbelievable poor - i found kitchen science had the rudeness / dreadfull customer service staff from any other internet store in the market-place. couldn't get a straight forward answer to a simple question about delivery timescale for a product that i ordered from them - a dyson animal hoover. when i asked the young lady to clarify the delivery date, she became rude and i later found out, she had cancelled my order, as well ! request a call back from one of the cs managers, never receive a… Read Full Review

I am an owner of the model DC07 Animal and bought it as a replacement for an earlier model thinking that it would last me a long time and cause very little trouble. The body is robust however it is supposed to continue to pick up dirt not move it around. It should be easier to strip down and keep clean than it is… Read Full Review

I think the Dyson DC07 Animal is too heavy and awkward to be carried up and down stairs unless you are young and fit. Exceptionally noisy. I have had to replace upper (flexi hose) and lower hose and now need a new motor for it. I am cutting my losses and dumping it in order to buy a vacuum as advised by 'Which' costing a lot less (albeit requiring a bag)… Read Full Review

We had a family hand-down of a Dyson DC01, that was worn out in a few places. We spent about £25 getting all the worn bits replaced and it worked really well. Much better than the 'Henry' before it. It was messy to empty and the filters needed cleaning/replacing every month. For all that though it generally was very reliable and worked well until the fan on the motor spindle actually sheared off, jamming the motor solid. It was essentially worn-out. It had been going for about 11-12… Read Full Review

We didn't get our Dyson DC07 Animal with all the attachments, so I tried the furniture sweeper tool from our Hoover. (It never worked well with the Hover since there was not enough suction to make it work properly). I works absolutely GREAT with the Dyson and REALLY cleans furniture and the cars wonderfully.
We are very glad we got the Dyson, it's embarassing how much dirt it pulls up from the carpet, but that's great!
I'd recommend it to anyone that feels that their vacuum is lacking in… Read Full Review

Loss of suction and seriously overheating motor after about two weeks use. "Lifetime" filter and motor replaced by engineer under guarantee but soon same problems returned. I'm not going to waste my time with this, I want to do some cleaning… Read Full Review

I have a dog that sheds all year round and always struggled to keep on top of the vacuuming - hoped this would help as would not normally pay so much.
It is better than my old vacuum cleaner but not enough to justify the extra cost I don't think… Read Full Review

The thing sounded as if it was full of marbles when I first assembled it and turned it on. Customer service was minimally helpful. Still sounds that way whenever it doesn't like the thickness of the surface it's not sucking anything off of. I hate this cleaner and feel like a dummy for having paid $500 for it. My advice, buy a Eureka for a fraction of the price and spend those hours reading instead of cleaning all the parts of your vacuum cleaner in the vain hope that it will function as… Read Full Review

Light weight, not very noisy. Poor suction. For the price it should work great, I have had better suction with cheap vacuums. Don't waste your money… Read Full Review

The DC07 is simple to assemble, the various parts fitting together with a satisfying CLICK.
Once assembled, the 'Animal' is a gaudy, in-your-face beast, unlikely to blend in with your decor unless you're Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen. Large and fairly heavy, too.
Its first outing was across our new upstairs carpet. Amazing! After emptying the large dust canister for the third time I expected to find bald patches, so much fluff did the Dyson suck up!
On open spaces you can really see the difference it… Read Full Review
