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,...

Brilliant machine


I bought this because my wife was struggling a bit with the upright Dyson we have had for quite some time. The first time my wife used the hand held cordless V8 she could not believe how powerful and lightweight it was, really really impressed

So far.. Love it!


Having dogs and a 1 year old hooverings always a nightmare. Normally takes me a good 30/40 mins just to hoover my German shepherds hair out my carpet. Did it for first time today with dyson. Done in two mins!! I am totally in love!

Fast and Powerful


I love the freedom of cordless vacuum cleaners and this is now our second Dyson. This cleaner has more useful features than our old one and is far more powerful. With the new one I can clean all downstairs without needing to recharge as it works for...

The perfect vacuum still eludes us!


In some ways great - good at sucking up dust and no restrictive cord and heavy base. But quite expensive and only 25 minutes battery power is just not long enough to get the job done. Whilst not seeming so at first, after 15 or 20 minutes, the...

Fantastic vacuum cleaner!


We are delighted with our purchase, encouraged by the Dyson representative at John Lewis Reading. It has fully replaced our upright Dyson, that was several years old. It even cleans carpets well. Only one small niggle, which is that holding the trigger...
