CoolCanucks Review of Dyson DC25 Animal Ball-Technology Upright Vacuum Cleaner!!



It’s defi­nately not a secret that Dyson pro­duces and sells stand-out vac­uum clean­ers. Dyson’s addi­tion to their higher-end DC25 line, the “Ani­mal”, aims to con­tinue their suc­cess­ful line of vac­u­ums with a model geared towards pet-owners, and the chal­lenges of dreaded pet hair.

Hav­ing planned to buy this vac­uum cleaner for months, I was ecsta­tic when the great folks over at Dyson Canada agreed to the review! I was con­cerned that it might not live up to my exceed­ingly high expec­ta­tions. I was not dis­ap­pointed at all, the DC25 Ani­mal got so much dirt and pet hair from my car­pets! If you have a pet it is def­i­nitely worth it!

This vac­uum does every­thing. We had two vac­u­ums prior, One for large areas and another for  stairs. We got rid of both and can eas­ily use our Dyson for every­thing. It’s true, it never loses suc­tion. We have two dogs and can do the entire 3000 SF house with­out emp­ty­ing, and that’s a lot of hair!




Equipped with Dyson’s sig­na­ture Ball tech­nol­ogy, this upright vac­uum cleaner eas­ily twists and turns around fur­ni­ture and obsta­cles for thor­ough clean­ing through­out the house–no more missed angles or tire­some back-and-forth vac­u­um­ing. Its ball design encap­su­lates the machine’s pow­er­ful motor, cre­at­ing a low cen­ter of grav­ity for even eas­ier maneu­ver­abil­ity. Designed for homes with pets, the unit’s motor­ized brush­bar fea­tures pow­er­ful bris­tles that remove dirt and pet hair from car­pets, while its mini tur­bine head thor­oughly cleans con­fined spaces such as uphol­stery, stairs, and the car. It also sup­plies a quick-draw Tele­scope Reach wand, which expands to offer 16 feet of reach for stairs, drapes, uphol­stery, and more. The vac­uum cleaner uses Root Cyclone tech­nol­ogy to sep­a­rate dirt from the air by cen­trifu­gal force, which ensures effi­cient clean­ing with no clog­ging or loss of suc­tion.
For cleaner expelled air, the unit comes with a wash­able life­time HEPA fil­ter that traps micro­scopic aller­gens such as pollen and bac­te­ria. In fact, the air expelled from a Dyson has up to 150 times less bac­te­ria and mold than the air you breathe, and all Dyson uprights are cer­ti­fied asthma friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foun­da­tion of Amer­ica. The unit’s hygienic 1/3-gallon bin quickly emp­ties with­out ever hav­ing to touch the dust–just press the but­ton and dust emp­ties from the bot­tom; the clear poly­car­bon­ate bin also allows for eas­ily view­ing the clean­ing progress and gaug­ing when it needs to be emp­tied. Other high­lights include fin­ger­tip con­trols, a con­stant suc­tion power of 220 air watts, a 24–3/5-foot cord, a max­i­mum reach of 40–2/7 feet, and a light­weight design at only 16–1/8 pounds. On-board acces­sory tools include a com­bi­na­tion tool and a stair tool attach­ment. The vac­uum cleaner mea­sures 12–1/5 by 15–2/5 by 42–2/5 inches and car­ries a five-year parts-and-labor war­ranty.


The Dyson DC25 Ani­mal is a pow­er­ful upright vac­uum cleaner that works great on pet hair and other tough clean­ing tasks. This lat­est model in the Dyson Ball series allows you to vac­uum smoothly around fur­ni­ture and other obsta­cles with the sig­na­ture Dyson Ball technology.

Three pow­er­ful cyclones spin pet dan­der, hair, dirt, dust, and other aller­gens out of car­pet, and the life­time HEPA fil­ter traps micro­scopic aller­gens. You can rec­og­nize the Dyson Ani­mal vac­u­ums by their dis­tinc­tive and fash­ion­able pur­ple colour.

The Dyson DC25 Ani­mal is a lit­tle pricey, but worth every penny. It’s suc­tion cleans every­thing. The ball tech­nol­ogy is great. Vac­u­um­ing around tables, chairs and other fur­ni­ture is a breeze. The wand makes clean­ing ceil­ing cor­ners and base boards so easy to do. My only regret is not being able to review this vac­uum sooner. Even peo­ple who don’t like vac­u­um­ing will love it! Trust me, if you have pets, go buy the thing and never worry about pet hair again!


Vac­uum your home eas­ily with this upright vac­uum that fea­tures a motor­ized brush bar to remove dirt and pet hair from car­pets and a Tele­scope Reach wand.


I give this Dyson DC25 Ani­mal Ball-Technology Upright Vac­uum Cleaner a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend it to everyone!!

A huge thank you to Dyson Canada for giv­ing me the oppor­tu­nity to review this great vacuum!!
