Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DocBrent DC65 Animal Complete
This machine is GREAT!! I had a smaller version of the animal vacuum and gave that to my step-son, and purchased the DC65 Animal Complete.
The only problem I have after using the smaller machine is that the DC 65 is heavier and a little more difficult to operate. It is just heavier. I'd use it everyday, but I am a Disabled Combat Vietnam Veteran who was blown up with a grenade and shot in the head, so it can be at times difficult to operate the machine.
So I ordered the SV09 Absolute so I can do smaller areas without so much effort. but I will continue to use the DC-65 for major cleaning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteelOvaries Wonderful vacuum
I waited a year before putting in a review to put this vacuum through its paces and it gets every particle and spect of dust. If it's true most dust is human skin, then the fine powder that ends up in the bin means I need to get better lotions for my family. I no longer use a dust cloth, I use the soft brush to dust attached to the extendable hose. The machine moves so easily and turns like a charm. It comes with a canvas holder for the attachments that hangs up, which keeps everything quick to get to. The only issue I have is with the hose. It doesn't stay extended when in use and wants to compact back to a tube. It's quite strong and I constantly struggle to keep it extended for use. I'd love to buy the canister but am afraid the hose on it would be the same. Other then the hose, I highly recommend this upright. Amazing machine!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ltcusarretired New home vacuum
This dyson vacuum has only a couple of items of concern. It is quite heavy and the ball technology prevents it from cleaning under many furniture items. It is also quite expensive. However if you have a pet hair pickup problem, it is worth it. My biggest complaint has to do with the owners instruction manual. The assembly pages are illustrations without sufficient supporting narrative/text to readily understand how the pieces go together. It has no instruction on using the attachments. I must have guessed right as it did work as soon as I got it assembled. I have not tried any of the hand attachments yet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer hair in the little wheels on the head
I have one dog, a long haired German Shepherd. The little wheels on the head get clogged with dog hair and stop rolling in just 2 months. This makes the unit very hard to push. A serious issue, I take of the head every two months and get out my utility knife and small needle nose pliers and cut and pull the hair out until the wheels are free once again. Unfortunately, must be done every 2 months. Imagine if I had 2 or 3 dogs.
Everything else on this Dyson is good, yes the commercials are true, it is a high quality vacuum that has the worlds best suction.
I am offering to be a testing site for Dyson for the DC65 Animal or any animal type vacuum. I vacuum 3-4 times a week to keep up with the pet hair as a long haired German Shepherd does shed a lot of hair.
Dyson is sending me 2 new replacement heads at no charge as we speak, Dyson stands behind their products, what more could anyone ask for?

Worked great ...then the side of the housing sheered off. Emailed Dyson "3" THREE times and received no response. Spent a lot of money...zero customer service....don't waste your money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donald63 A worthwhile investment
Our dog of choice is the collie. These family friendly Lassie look-a-likes are wonderful except their long hair about our lair. Over the years, we have tried the latest and greatest, but they seldom lasted beyond a year.
So we decided to invest in the Animal Complete. It was more than what we spent in the past, but hoped that it would pay off over the long term. And it has! It has lasted beyond every other vacuum that we have purchased and its performance has not diminished since it first arrived.
The transition from carpet to wood floors is seamless. Using the attachments may be different at first because of how the machine is engineered, but all are very useful and come with a convenient organizer that you can hang in your closet.
If you have wood floors, walk around barefooted after you have used a Dyson. It's a truly amazing feel of cleanliness.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kwass This is a great machine! Love how it manvers around everything so easily! The power is really strong and even on low-pile carpet, nothing is left behind, not even fine short pet hair. Emptying the bin is so easy with just the push of a button. The whole machine is so lightweight it nice to be able to take it up and downstairs to use on jobs that come up. I really love this machine for rooms with lots of carpet! The long cord allows me to vacuum without having to unplug and move to another plug as often as my old machine! Its also very powerful and fast on getting the job done!
