The Dyson V8 Animal cord-free vacuum is engineered for homes with pets. A direct-drive cleaner head sucks up pet hair and ground in-dirt across both carpets and hard floors. Powered by the Dyson digital motor V8, it generates even more suction than its predecessor and, with whole machine filtration, it captures pet allergens and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe. Thanks to a revolutionary cord-free format, it also transforms for easy cleaning up high and into a handheld for quick cleans close at hand with an extra tool for tougher tasks.

Dyson V8 Animal Vacuum Cleaner | 164537-01 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 759.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So lightweight and easy to use I have owned Dyson vacuum cleaners before and always felt they were far and above the best on the market. I hesitated to buy a cordless type as I thought they would be inferior and that the charge wouldn't last long enough to get any decent amount of cleaning done. I should have had more faith in Dyson and now that I have the V8 animal I don't know why I ever hesitated .The power is fantastic and although I live in a very large house find the charge time ample .I've no doubt that the Dyson will be the best on the market so other makes may not be sufficient but i couldn't be more pleased and just wish I hadn't waited so long to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super machine Purchased to replaced my Dyson v6 which is fantastic itself and never thought it could be bettered but the V8 is in another class.. Not a single thing I would change and everything has been thought of.. It's a lot quieter than the V6 it has more suction power and a new redesigned motorised head a different body and empty mechanism that is so much better than V6 it's new head is a little bit larger and a lot more powerful you can feel it beating the dust out of the carpet.. Overall I'm really glad I upgraded it's not cheap but well worth the money and good to have 2 years peace of mind with the warranty. Very happy with my purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design but... Great design, light and easy to use (which is very welcome)... I say "but"... in my title... Two things that disappoint - the first is the length of the charging cable - it is far too short! The manual assumes you will mount the charger above a socket - very convenient if you have one at hand to do so. In my case I had to mount on a wall near a work surface and the cable is not long enough to reach the plug, so I now have to purchase an extension lead. Why scrimp of an extra few feet of cable?? Second - battery life on max suction - the sales staff do not tell you that it is only 7 minutes on this setting! It should be pointed out to be honest...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for animals Dyson ANIMAL? We bought the vacuum because we have a dog and thought Buying an expensive vac would be worth it. The vac clogs up after 2 minutes of use so I spend more time declogging than actually vacuuming. It picks up barely any of his hairs and it’s just a complete nightmare start to finish. I cant do one room without having to charge it and it takes be double the amount of time having to take it to bits every time, it doesn’t have enough suction to pull the dirt to the end. we haven’t had it a year and the battery has already broken. I feel completely disheartened with the cost and I’m not going to have to fork out for a new vacuum that does work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible With white carpets and two dogs we really thought we would have to convert to hard floors. The amount of dirt that came up the first few times was astonishing and we continue to be amazed at how much we are still picking up and the improvement in the carpets and overall look of the house. Being cord free is liberating and it's easy to pick up and go whenever we need to. We thought the battery time would be frustrating, but it now suits us to have bursts of 25 minute activity to clean up and makes cleaning no big deal, and also rewarding. Very happy and satisfied with this latest Dyson product to add to our stable of workhorses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Having been extremely happy with my V6 Animal Dyson for the past four years I decided to upgrade, expecting a few tweaks here and there but it seems everything is just that bit better than before ( in comparison to my V6) More power for longer, powerful and effective suction, lighter to use in the hand. An easier glide on hard floors, better design to prevent animal hair etc clogging up the brush head. Great cleaning on carpets, I don't even need to use my upright plug-in vacuum any more for all my carpets, this V8 does the job quicker and without the fuss of carrying a heavy upright vacuum upstairs. I truly love my new Dyson, it makes my life easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At Last - no cable and plenty of suck I bought this vacuum cleaner hoping to make the job of lifting dog hairs out of our carpets possible - and wow, it does it with such ease and effectiveness. Crevices and tight corners? No problem and the suction is so great that you can lift the carpet off the gripper bars if you're not careful. The machine is so light that in stair carpet cleaning mode, it is a delight to use. Emptying the dust out of the collection barrel could not be easier. Because of our lack of space, we mounted everything on a vertical wooden base board screwed to a wall with the extension tube and fittings held in various clips detached from the main body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy I bought my Dyson V8 Animal almost 2 months ago as an extra vacuum that I could take upstairs without all the hassle of cables etc.I have recently realised I have never used the older vacuum since as I find it so easy to pick up the Dyson V8 and give the carpets a quick clean. I also use it over my tiled floors and it does a great job although I maybe should have bought the Absolute with the hard floor head had I realised I would be using it as much downstairs.I have used it for the car and even take it to my local Bowling club to vacuum the bowling mats. The charge has lasted for as long as I have ever needed it so far and am very pleased with product.
