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: A cheaper alternative to the Cyclone V10


Not as good as the new Dyson Cyclone V10 but the Dyson V8 Animal is a cheaper option and still a fantastic vacuum cleaner

Lightweight and manouevrable ; Powerful suction ; Cheapest Dyson V8

Expensive ; Some parts feel flimsy ; Not as good as the Dyson Cyclone V10

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. Plus, now that the Dyson Cyclone V10 has arrived, it's no longer the best of...

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,...

Horrifyingly Fantastic Vacuum Cleaner


"I am delighted with my new vacuum cleaner but also horrified at what came out of my carpets!!! Because of this, I have only one negative comment, the clear bin could be a little bigger. I understand the new V10 has this but was a little beyond my...

Cleans like a dream; Very powerful motor; Bye bye dog and cat hair

Super Powerful, Super Small


"I love that this tiny little vaccum can pick up so much grub! It's got two settings so you choose between MEGA suction which is actually quite an effort to push across a deep pile carpet and regular which still does an excellent job but is easier on...

Tiny; VERY powerful; Lots of accessories

With mega suck mode it's hard to push about

Definitely for Pets


"Great vacuum. Even on the normal power mode, it will clean our whole house. We have a small long haired puppy and this does a fantastic job. Plus it's so quiet the dog isn't bothered by it."

Powerful; Quiet

Why did we ever have a corded vac!


"Bought this to add to our upright, mainly to make the stairs and upstairs easier. This device is excellent and does upstairs and the stairs on one charge! Even the kids love it and have done their bedrooms so it's worth the money just for that alone!...

Easy to use; Great for stairs

Dyson V8 Anmal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner


"Am really pleased with this vacuum cleaner. It is easy to use and very light to carry and use on the stairs. It certainly is very powerful so far as cat fur is concerned. The accessories are easy to change over and to include a bag to store the...
