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...

Really useful product


I have two children under two and the Dyson Animal is ideal. I can quickly and easily clear up after them. It's also very light weight so I can even do the hoovering whilst carrying one of them if needs be.
