Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Great Vacuum
We have 5 kids & 2 dogs who shed a lot (the dogs). I am amazed how much the DC41 picks up dirt and dog hair. It never seems to lose suction and never gets plugged like our last high-end vacuum that we paid more than double for. Plus no bags to buy-thank you Dyson.
We've had it over 2 months now and not one problem or complaint about it. In fact its a fight between my wife and older kids on who gets to vacuum.

Got home and ran old vac over rugs, then the DC41 Animal and was shocked at what it picked up! We have 4 Shepherds, I was using an upright and a canister w/crevice tool to get around things. Moves effortlessly between rugs and laminate.This is so convenient, I'm using it a couple times a day. Cleaner with bags always smelled of dogs, no odor with this one.(has a nice long cord too) . Don't hesitate on this one. Home Depot had the best price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gladiboughtmydyson Stop reading this review and go get one!! :)
I'm telling you, this vacuum is AWESOME!! I did the same thing you are and checked out all the reviews. What I was most impressed about was how a Dyson representative was responding to some of the lesser quality comments. That really impressed me that they had someone that actually reached out to those people!!
Believe me, $600 was not just waiting on the money tree to be picked, but I bit the bullet and got it. After vacuuming my floor earlier that same morning with my old vacuum, I got home and redid it with the DC41 and the container was FULL (yes, this is the picture worth taking, YUCK)!! After I had just vacuumed it several hours earlier!! Yes, we have a dog that sheds, but I couldn't believe how much hair and plain old dirt that this thing sucked out of my shag carpet!!
YOU GO DYSON! Now you go and get this vacuum, you won't be sorry!

Since HD was having a sale, we couldn't pass up the deal on the Dyson DC 41. After we got it home and put together, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to test it out, even though it was about 10 o'clock at night. We have a dog and a cat, both short hair, so I really didn't think it there would be that much in the carpet, especially since I'm a vacuuming fiend. After vacuuming over one floor, I was surprised at how much hair, dirt and grime it picked up! We both got so excited, we ended up vacuuming the whole house just to see what all and how much it would pick up! Let's just say what was in the bottom of the trash can was a bit disgusting, but completely amazing! If you're debating on whether or not it's worth the $500-$700 price tag...it's worth every penny! If you don't believe me, try it out for yourself, but I highly doubt you'll be pocketing that receipt for long to make a full return.

Great vacuum. We have carpets as well as large tiled areas and this vacuum does a great job on both. You can shut off brushes with a push of the button and vacuum adjusts itself down to tile floor. It is exspensive but has been a work horse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kimbo5 Great vacuum, excellent suction.
I was hesitant to spend $500, but the reviews I read prior to purchase were accurate. I have two dogs, one medium, one large. They both shed moderately and what this vacuum picks up is amazing. The suction is incredible and it is light enough to carry up and down my split level house without a problem. I am very satisfied with this vacuum. And, it is bagless!

I've been using my Dyson for a few weeks and can't believe how much dirt, dust and dog hair I pick up each time I use it.
I actually look forward to vacuuming now!
This machine is much lighter and more maneuverable than my former vacuum. The long hose allows me to leave the vacuum at the bottom of the stairs and still clean from top to bottom of the staircase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis Broke down and bought one...SIMPLY AMAZING VAC!!
I talked myself out of this purchase for years. I said it was too expensive and it made no sense to spend $600 on a vacuum. After my cheaper vacuum broke on two occasions and I needed to spend about $70 each time fixing it, I decided to take the plunge and spend the money. My first use I vacuumed the living room which was recently cleaned by the other unit. I was amazed at the amount of dirt it still gathered. The suction power is clearly better and they do state it has the most suction at the cleaner head. I also found it to be a very light vacuum. It was much lighter than my old unit. The ball is great for maneuvering around furniture. At this point I cannot see anything wrong with this product. The price is high and I didn't like spending that much, but it is the best vacuum I have ever used. As I have read in other reviews, I do have the same concern over the plastic parts lasting over time, but I can only assume DYSON would not have built it with cheap parts. I have no reason to doubt them!
