Dyson V8 Animal review: The most affordable Dyson V8


Just like the V8 Absolute, but with one fewer head accessory, the V8 Animal is a fantastic vacuum cleaner

Lightweight and manouevrable ; Powerful suction ; Cheapest Dyson V8

Expensive ; Some parts feel flimsy

My only issue with it is that, as with all Dysons, it’s expensive and build quality in places feels a little too plasticky for my liking, particularly the bin-release handle. Still, it is £50 cheaper than the V8 Absolute, which makes that bitter pill a...

Dyson V8 Animal


Our fur-moulting, muddy-pawed companions have always necessitated the best in vacuum cleaner technology for the home. Big motors, powerful suction, dedicated tools and floor-heads with rotating brush bars are a must. So can Dyson's V8 Animal cordless...

An outstanding pet-specific cordless cleaner, only bested by Dyson's own V8 Absolute for hard floors.

Dyson V8 Animal review

  (Rating Hidden)

Specially designed for homes with pets, the Dyson V8 Animal is being marketed as ‘cord-free' and ‘hassle-free'. Dyson claims this cordless vacuum cleaner is super-easy to use, and extremely hygienic. But it costs a pretty penny. Is it worth the money,...

Quick and easy to use


This cordless vac is lighter than I expected, sucks well and is wonderfully quick and easy to use. On the down side it is expensive, needs emptying frequently and I don't think the battery would last if cleaning the whole house in one go. However it is...

Expensive but good


We bought this after using a corded upright for years, so was a little dubious if the power/suction would be sufficient. It is easy and comfortable to use and can reach places where the old vacuum could not reach. So far we are pleased with the...

Powerful and amazing


I made the mistake of leaving it on max. suction. Wow! It picked up everything. Whilst I was able to hoover a lot of the house I needed a bit longer! Totally my fault! Such a convenient fabulous machine.

Impressive bit of kit.


This is a really impressive bit of kit, it has the option of super suction which seems to lift anything. I am impressed with how light and easy it is to use and it is always on standby with the charger system pluged into the wall and the mounted bracket.

Plain carpet without tears.


I really like this cleaner. When i fell in love with the colour of my dark red carpet I forgot everything I'd ever learned about plain carpets. Vacuuming left 'bits' and I had to go over it with a sticky roller. It took ages. This Dyson V8 was...

A must have


Excellent quality product. Very light and flexible. Does a brilliant job and helps keep on top of the hoovering. Added bonus with the attachment to vacuum the car. My Miele vacuum cleaner has been made redundant.
