Hi this is Jessica from Dyson.

However, the DC39 Animal is Dyson's newest canister machine and the first canister to feature Dyson Ball technology, allowing it greater steering control. The DC39 also has a unique Triggerhead tool making it the only turbine head controlled at the handle, no bending down necessary.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 140 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dyson DC 23 ANIMAL Looking for an A+ vacuum??? I would totally recommend this product to anyone looking for a new vacuum. Despite the cost, it is by far the best vacuum I have ever owned! The attachments are easy to switch on and off and the handle on the hose helps maneuver the vacuum around. It takes me half the amount of time to vacuum my home which makes it more tolerable! I don't feel like I'm going over the same section many times. The floor attachment is the best attachment ever as I have hard wood floors throughout my home. It maneuvers into smaller areas easier than my Bissell upright with attachments. The rug attachment picks up much more kitty hair than I was expecting. When I am done vacuuming, my home actually looks clean. Having kitties, it is sometimes a bear to keep up with shedding. Emptying the canister is not too bad either. My Bissell upright had a bagless canister, but I like the Dyson more. None of them will be dust free, but if you take the care and thought into emptying the canister, it is not so bad. June 13, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC23 Animal I've got 2 indoor large dogs. just love, love my Dc23. No problem with it. bought it in 21012. working stronger than ever. Thank You, DYSON August 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC23 This vacuum works like a charm! Even when you think your floors are clean, then you use this, you know they were not clean before! March 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For People Hair Too! Pets are not required for this vacuum. Great choice! Fantastic intuitive design; easy to add and remove devices and canister from vacuum. Solid construction that at least looks, feels and works as if it will last a long time. The Articulated Hardwood Floor Tool comes with this unit at a reduce price (verses if purchased as a stand alone accessory); this is a must have and will amaze you on its usefulness and flexibility. The Mini Turbine Head Tool is also great and a must have; it too comes as a reduced cost accessory. The only negative: I know that I will eventually purchase some other stand alone accessories at unfortunately premium prices. November 30, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Suction Power My wife and I purchased the DC23 animal canister about 2 months ago and it has been nothing short of amazing. The suction is incredible. We had dust underneath our couches and it was difficult to move our couch and dust each week. Once we vacuumed underneath with the Dyson there wasn't anymore dust. I was amazed as all our other vacuums never had the power to do that. However, the one negative that I found were the components being made out of a cheap plastic. It seems like they may break easily. But, the five year warranty kind of puts us at ease for a while with that where the other companies don't compare in warranty. Overall, it is a great buy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my Canister For years I looked for a machine that could tackle the tough job of cleaning my bird cages. Lots of different tools, (I bought some additional tools) for certain jobs, like cleaning feathers off of the barn board behind the cages with the stiff bristle brush. I bought this about 3 years ago, so I have been using it for quite some time. I keep the filter clean, and have had no problems with the machine. It picks up fine particles with ease. I empty the bin in the garage garbage, due to the fine particles that I don't want released back into the house. I also take the bin apart most of the time, to thoroughly clean it. The canister is great, due to it's large capacity. I also don't have to worry about it falling over, like an upright, when using the tools. I know that this machine is called an animal d=because of the additional attachments for people with pets, but I would call it an animal due to it's workhorse capabilities! October 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow! I could kick myself for not buying one sooner. While waiting for my new carpets to be installed, I received my Animal and decided to try it out on the old rug that had just been vacuumed since all the furniture was removed from those rooms. Did I mention I had JUST vacuumed. Ended up emptying the canister several times for what was left behind by my old one. I have a long haired cat, short haired dog, and my own issues with long hair ending up all over the house. Needless to say, it takes care of it all with ease and very little noise. I got the canister to make staircases easier to take on and its so lightweight it cuts the job in half. I find myself looking for things to vacuum just to see it in action. November 14, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best vacuum I've ever used!!! This vacuum is very powerful, almost scary powerful. I had a Miele canister vac before this one, but I realized it only worked really well the first few times after I changed the bag. Warning: It might make you sick to see what your old vacuum left behind! The included attachments are very good, especially the turbine and the mini turbine. All the hand attachments also store on the machine. Very well designed, very smooth and easy to use. I use the machine to dust everything, no need for duster anymore. When the machine is full, push a button, canister comes off, walk to the garbage can, push one more button and the bottom swings open and empties, it's so easy! The Dyson people are just genius, they have done it right! June 25, 2011
