Dyson DC44 Animal


The Dyson DC44 Animal is Dyson’s latest stick/handheld vacuum cleaner and it is essentially an upgraded Dyson DC35 Digital Slim. Upgrades include a more powerful floor tool, increased run time and a motorized tool for pulling up pet hair. Consumers...

Easy to use ; Powerful ; Convenient (no need to pull out the big vacuum for smaller jobs) ; Lightweight ; Better than the DC35 on pet hair and carpet

Expensive ; Small dust canister ; Have to hold power button down for the vacuum to run ; Top heavy design bothers some owners ; Hair can be tricky to get out of dust canister

Like DC35 owners a number of DC44 owners complain that you have to continuously hold the power button down for the vacuum to run. This was a major issue for DC35 owners and it is somewhat surprising that Dyson did not make any design changes here....
