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...

By far the best


"I have a busy household, people in and out, a baby and two dogs! It picks everything up including all dog hair and has my carpets looking like new. Attachements are all brilliant and really easy to change over. Would definitely recommend this product."

Love it


So much easier than ones with a cord. Went righy through my house in one go. I currently have a trapped nerve and the lightness of this and not having to lean over pulling plugs out etc was a god send and can't fault it performance.

Love it


light and powerful. I was concerned it may not be as good as my Dyson upright but needn't have worried. Also 45 mins vacuum time was off putting but it's ample time. Was good price on offer too.
