Comments about Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum:
I just purchased The Animal yesterday and have only used it one. My previous vacuum was a Dyson and I loved it. The head stopped working so I was in the market for a new one. Although I loved my other Dyson, it did not pick up pet hair as well as I would have liked. After reading reviews I decided to purchase this one. I love it. Although the head is smaller than my other Dyson and the canister is as well, it does exactly what I need it to and in record time. I like the extra attachment head just for cleaning pet hair from furniture. It's amazing. I'm so very happy with my new Dyson. It's an animal!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like my Dyson, it is ...
I like my Dyson, it is very light and easy to maneuver.
Received the Dyson DC47 as a gift. It's one of the best gifts you could ever ask for. Not only does it do a great job vacuuming, but it's easy to use and can reach places that are not usually vacuumed with our regular vacuum. Works great, it really sucks and is easy to do stairs with and even easy to empty (which is good because you will need to do it often). A great vacuum which is easy to use!
We moved into a home and was informed that the carpets were "professionally" cleaned. Once we started vacuuming, we discovered that either that was not the case or the "professionals" did an extremely poor job. Dyson has done it again with this excellent, easy to maneuver vacuum. Within the first hour of vacuuming, we filled it up almost twice. It found dog hair that was buried deep into the carpet. It works very well on hardwood floors as well. I intend to purchase one of these for my Mom because it is such a great product. Kudos Dyson.
Small & Powerful
This vacuum is both small & powerful. The Pros are: - Sucks up everything in its pathway with great power. - Doesn't get clogged by pet hair. - Has many attachments for every job. - Light weight easy to move around. - Durable. I've dropped mine a few times and it keeps on running. The Cons are: - Very small space from the hose to the canister gets clogged easily with larger items picked up. - Small canister needs to be emptied frequently & usually not just with the push of the canister button. I usually have to pull the dirt out by hand due to the small space and the large amount of hair. - Pricey
I've just had my animal about a month, I like the ease in which you can vacuum. My previous vacuum was the upright Dyson, so I knew my second one would have to be a Dyson. It's very portable and easy to maneuver. Taking out the filters for cleaning, very simple, cannot put in wrong only one way to go, foolproof. I did have to reattach the little purple bristle brushed to the floor attachment, so far the only think i have had to fix and that was simple to do.
This is my favorite vacuum by far out of the four I own. It is lightweight, cleans exceptionally well. Gets all the fine dust you can't even see. Love love love. My house feels so clean when I use it. I can not stand feeling dirt on my feet, have a lot of floor and spend a lot of time vacuuming and with this vacuum I can relax with clean floors.Thank you Dyson. You are the bomb.
Great machine I would buy it again
The first go around it fills up quick. because of the extra power and the tank is smaller. but that is a great trade off. the pet hair brush works great. Also Great for cleaning the Car. I have a tri- level with tile carpet, laminate fllooring .
DC 47 Animal
I love this vacumme!! It's easy to move, and it picks up great. I also love the fact I can get under all my furniture with the full power of the suction. I have the cordless handheld I use for quick pick ups.
Tiny but mighty
Dyson's DC47 design is 1) visually appealing and 2) ergonomically comfortable during both use and carrying when done. I have small rural home, and we park our vehicles on dirt - so you KNOW there's a lot of dirt (very silty) that comes in the door no matter how much we wipe our shoes on door mats. Through the years, I've had several other brands, some with bags, some bagless, but NOTHING with suction like the Dyson! I was okay with ordering this small unit because our house is less than 1200 sq ft. Yes, I have to move the plug more than once when vacuuming the whole house, but I did with my other vacuums, too. What was surprising was how often I had to empty the bin the first time I used it (if I don't vacuum often, I may have to empty it after every room - but to me, that just shows how well this vacuum cleans and gives me incentive to vacuum more often). This unit pulls up FAR more dirt than any other vacuum I've ever used. We have laminate floors with area rugs and my first use with the Dyson shocked me; I had no idea how much dirt the area rugs were holding! My rugs look newer and feel fluffier now. The upholstery tool works wonders on cat hair and the crevice tool makes keeping my bookshelves clean a breeze. The internal washable filter is great, but it does take 24 hours to dry (sometimes a little longer in our humid Louisiana weather), so I ordered an extra (be aware it's not listed online, but was able to use the chat function on the website and get it ordered - thanks Dyson!); that should resolve the only drawback I've found. Wish I had bought a Dyson years ago!
