Dyson DC 65 Animal Vacuum Cleaner Review

All right, so I don’t really love my Dyson DC 65 Animal vacuum cleaner more than my husband and my kids, my 14 bunnies {yes, we found 9 – NINE – more babies}, our one Great Pyrenees dog,  and 2 cats. But, really? It might be a close call. You guys, the best part about blogging is being able to share awesome products with you and today I want to tell you a bit about the Dyson DC 65 Animal Vacuum Cleaner!  If anyone is qualified to review Dyson’s DC 65 Animal, it’s me. After all, we only have 17 pets right now. Seriously. People, please help me. 😀 I’m drowning in animals…

I’ve had a Dyson vacuum cleaner for years – since 2006 – and I’ve got to say, it is hands down, the best vacuum cleaner brand I have ever owned. If you don’t have a Dyson, but are looking for a new vacuum cleaner, I hope you’ll consider this awesome brand.

The Dyson DC 65 Animal Vacuum Cleaner Really Sucks. Literally.

I mean that in the best way possible. Don’t we want our vacuum cleaners to suck? This one beats them all, in my humble opinion. It is the most power vacuum cleaner I’ve owned. And I’ve owned them all. Cheap ones. Expensive ones. Little ones. Big ones. Heavy ones. Light ones. I used them to vacuum carpet, hardwood, and tile.  And after owning them for only short periods of time, I threw them all away, or took them to Goodwill, or begged someone to take them off my hands. I was never happy with my vacuum cleaner UNTIL I got my first Dyson in 2006. Best Buy just sent me the newest model though, the DC 65 Animal, and it’s even better than my old Dyson – which I thought would be impossible to improve upon.

Check out some of these amazing features of the DC 65 Animal:

  • Brush bar power increased by 25% for superior carpet cleaning
  • New configuration of bristles dig deeper into carpets to remove more dirt
  • Remodeled airflows to help remove more dirt, dust, and allergens from the home.
  • 180AW of suction (vs. 160AW in DC41)
  • Self-adjusting baseplate
  • Long-reach telescopic wand
  • 2x suction of any other vacuum
  • Closer edge pick-up
  • Built to survive 10 years
  • Hygienic bin emptying

I also love Dyson Vacuum Cleaners for two things they do NOT have!

  • Bags – If you still have a vacuum cleaner that uses bags – why?? Who wants to spend money on something you just throw away? I love that I can simply empty my Dyson’s canister directly in the garbage and keep on vacuuming. No searching for bags. No buying bags. No changing bags. Ever. Easy peasy.
  • Belts – Same for belts. Can I tell you how many times I had to take my previous vacuum cleaners in to have belts replaced??? All. The. Time. Not fun. And what a waste of money. Get a Dyson that doesn’t use these parts. I guarantee you won’t miss them one bit.

Hands down, this DC 65 Animal maneuvers like no other, sucks like no other, and helps keep my pet ridden house clean. It works just as well on my hardwood floors as it does on the carpet. When I can get someone else to run it, that is. 😀

Why I love my Dyson DC 65 Animal The Dyson DC 65 Animal cleans better than any other vacuum across carpets and hard floors and is available at Best Buy. Check it out! You won’t be disappointed. It’s worth every penny.

  1. I had my heart set on a Dyson this last purchase time but I just couldn’t talk the hubby into it. We got a Hoover Pet & although, not as amazing as Dyson, pretty darn good for the money spent.
