Unique Dyson Product Features

BAF Approval Lifetime HEPA filter
The Dyson DC17 Animal has a HEPA filter which lasts for a lifetime. No expensive filters to replace, just clean air and more clean air! Additionally, this vacuum cleaner is approved for allergy sufferers by the British Allergy Foundation. 
Unique Clear Bin
Unique Clear Bin
The innovative design of the Dyson's clear bin is great because you always know just how well your Dyson is working! One quick glance and you can tell when it's full, and it is easy to empty.  Completely hassle-free, especially since there are no bags to buy, ever.
Dyson Brush High Velocity Air Intake
Intake nozzles on the DC17 tools direct high velocity airflow down into the carpet pile.  This means that you pick up more dust, dirt, and debris. The directional force of the air agitates and dislodges all the nasty stuff hiding in your carpet. And the airflow is continuous, even when vacuuming curtains or upholstery, so they don't get stuck to the cleaner.

best vac I ever owned and I have always been a canister vac girl. It is heavy and I wish the cord retracted but I still love it. I sucked up a tie with it and the belt broke but one call to Dyson and they sent me a new belt and beater bar free and it was easy to change them out.

The belts or belt is covered for the life of the vac as is everything else.. Call them and they will send you a new one or replacement vac if you have bigger issues. NUMBER IS ON THE HANDLE..
  Great vacuum - does need belt!
Reviewed by: Dog Enthusiast from South-Central NC

This is by far the best vacuum cleaner I've ever owned, and I've owned a LOT. We have five dogs - all in the house, and this is the first vacuum that's been able to keep up. I do, however, have to agree with DH from Florida - our belt has broken and the most annoying thing is I can't find a replacement?? No answer from Dyson and the 'numbers' on the belt are completely worn off??

Dyson DC17 Animal Vacuum Cleaner

The DC17 Animal is the ultimate cleaning tool for allergic pet owners.  This vacuum introduces the world's most efficient cyclone technology with Level 3 Root Cyclone Technology. It will never clog or lose suction. Three powerful cyclones spin pet dander, hair, dirt, dust, and other allergens out of carpet, and the lifetime HEPA filter traps microscopic allergens. You need a vacuum that lets you clean any space in your home. Experience the ease and cleanliness of Dyson's no-bag, no-mess dust bin and enjoy peace of mind knowing you will never lose suction.

What I liked about the Dyson DC17 Animal

This vacuum is perfect if you have pets. The vacuum has a low profile that helps you get underneath furniture and in hard to reach places. It also has a pet attachment that works well. Another great feature of this vacuum is that it has attachments that instantly extend so that you can clean hard to reach places, curtains, furniture, and upholstery.

One problem I always have with my own vacuum is that I do not know when to change the dust bag. With this vacuum, you do not have that problem. There are no dust bags to deal with on a Dyson. Secondly, you have a clear dust bin that makes it possible for you to see the amount of dust accumulated. The clear bin is easily emptied by pressing a single button.

What I did not like about the Dyson DC17 Animal

One thing that you could complain about this vacuum when you first receive it is the weight of it. The vacuum is pretty heavy, but when you are using the DC17 Animal it seems to propel itself. This makes it feel lighter. One other thing to know about this vacuum is that it is very powerful. You have to make sure that you turn the brush roll off if you are doing hardwood or smooth floors. It might damage the finish.
