Our Family: -2 Adults, 1 Child & 2 Boston Terriers Our Home: -1008sq ft [1st floor, not counting partially finished full basement] -Built around 1970 -80% Original Hardwood [About 10% of that has a rug(s) on it] -10% Linoleum -10% Tile First Dyson product. This little, powerful, canister is exactly what we wanted. I thoroughly researched what it can do/was built to do...after receiving it, it does exactly what Dyson says. Purchased Multi Angle Brush as well as Asthma & Allergy Kit in addition to DC47 Animal. Pro's: -Small, maneuverable, powerful, average noise for a vacuum, range of abilities with the accessories & ease of use. +Great feature: Pressure release, you will love this if/when the head snags on a rug or surprise object. Con's: -Only able to attach 2 extra tools to vacuum wand. [Flexi crevice tool & Soft Dusting Brush replaced what came in the box with the DC47] I acknowledge the price difference between Dyson & typical vacuums, however, I firmly believe you cannot find this level of quality/ability/polish for a lesser price. I want to point out that using a canister is FAR different than using a standard vacuum. Once I got accustom to it I don't think I'll purchase an upright again. Upon receiving this I vacuumed the entire house, which was done with our old vacuum the day prior. Usual story, the new Dyson found GOBS of dirt in our home. I generally clean one or two rooms a day, not typically doing a whole home cleaning in a single swoop. That fact allows the cord length & bin size to work well for me. The bin is easy to dump & easy to tell when dumping is needed. Sure it is smallish, but your home should never be dirty enough to have the bin size of the DC47 become an issue. All things connect logically & work well. I especially like the carbon head as I feel it cleans our hard surfaces well & far easier than using a broom. The Tangle-free Turbine tool truly is a marvel, works great on pet hair as well as human stragglers, I use this on our throw blankets & couch pillows. I highly recommend this vacuum if our family & home are similar to yours, best vacuum we have EVER owned. I also make these recommendations to Dyson on future models: -either increase the # of accessories that can be attached to the wand or place the 2 connectors on opposite sides of the wand. This would allow 2 of the wide accessories to be housed on the wand without interfering with another. Bottom Line: It works, it's easy & it makes sense. You cannot go wrong with this model, provided you do not have a massive home & plan to vacuum it all at once.

After having this vacuum for one month, the beater brush now turns itself off randomly while cleaning my carpet. I pry the button into the "on" position (which isn't user friendly at all, no other vacuum I've ever used required me to use my nails to pry a button out), and the beater bar turns off almost immediately after being placed on the carpet again. I've also got pets, and thus, a lot of pet hair in my dirt cup. With my old vacuum, I could just press a button and everything would fall out. With my Dyson DC47, only the dust comes out - the hair remains stuck between the cyclonic thingie and the side of the cup, meaning I have to touch my vacuumed dirt and hair every single time I empty the vacuum.

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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!

Truly Amazing!

By snuphiluphigus

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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

By HenriettaHairyHouse

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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.

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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.

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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 .

Tiny but mighty

By LouisianaRN

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

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!

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

So for the first time in 20 years I have a new Vacuum! The old one served me well but it went out in a blaze of glory! Literally! Ordered this one and tried it out for the first time today. This vacuum is awesome, it will take a little time to get used to but I really do like the fact that there are no more vacuum cleaner bags to buy. I also like the idea of being able to take it apart and clean it easily. Small and compact follows you around the house easily, and all the little tools cleaned out under the refrigerator really well.

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

This is my 3rd Dyson I just I gave my old Dyson to my daughter, which she really likes. I purchased the animal. DC47 It is a great machine. You can go crazy reading reviews .Take your'e time pick the right tool for the job. I am 69 yrs old live in a tri-leveal With two dogs. four floors are carpeted the other's are tile and wood. This is a smaller machine which is great for me. I might empty it maybe a little more often,than bigger machine .But that is ok This is easy to store, Great for under the tables,beds and other furniture . It has lot's of power, Would I buy it again YES I would. The other bonus is the Dyson people, they are great to help you, too make the right decision. The DC47 had a real nice beat, it was easy to dance with and I gave it a 5 Star rating .

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

I received this as gift and if I were to purchase a Dyson, I'm not sure I would have choose this. It works fine on my hardwood floors but is not best on carpet. If your whole house is hard flooring I think it would work great! If you have carpet with a high pile, I would suggest a different Dyson vacuum.

Great Vacuum - needs a longer cord

By BigIslandCIA

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

This is my second Dyson vacuum. My first, which I still have, is an Animal DC14. I used that vacuum for everything I could. Retiring to a home without any carpeting prompted me to purchase a canister vacuum, and of course the only consideration was a Dyson. I love everything about the DC47 except the power cord length. When using the DC14 I was able to do my entire house alternating between two outlets. Now, with the DC47 I can't do an entire room without moving the plug several times.

Great Little Animal!

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

Love this vacuum! It's light, easy to store, and is powerful. It makes vacuuming not a chore & something we do more often than with the heavy upright we had. Having a dog indoors means pet hair and dander...this little animal picks up better than the other upright "pet" vacuums. I can now vacuum under the couch and other large furniture without moving them because of the slender design. Even our pre-teen enjoys vacuuming now! :)

Small but powerful

By MrCln

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

What strikes the user first is the thoughtful design that has gone into the machine, and as you examine the parts more closely, you appreciate the close tolerances that have been achieved and how all the parts combine into an efficient and light-weight machine that has the power to produce very good results on the tough jobs. The design is functionally effective and in style exhibits an artful appeal. If there is a slight drawback, it is that the cannister does not hold much before it needs to be emptied. The ease of emptying, though, reduces the impact of this limitation. In general, it is a great little machine!

The cleaning performance ...

By bodhi

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

The cleaning performance was relatively good. But on a darkish carpet it still doesn't pick up all the lint and I still have to sticky roll to completely clean. The retractable power cord got stuck and didn't retract after the third use. When I brought it in to be repaired they said I had over filled the cup and it needed to be cleaned, which I paid for. Overall it is not super easy to decipher in terms of the parts and how to use. I had to really read all the directions.

Animal DC47

By DirtyNelly

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

This is the 3rd Dyson product we have purchased and by far, the most expensive, poor performing, frustrating vacuum in he world. It takes 2+ hours to vacuum one room. The floor tool binds up and stops when cleaning the smallest stuff - like a piece of thread. When we first called Dyson customer service they sent us a new floor tool. The replacement tool does the same thing. I tried to return it, however, I had it too long for the store to take it back. The store suggested contacting Dyson and I've spent hours on the phone with customer no-service. This machine is horrible and Dyson won't refund the purchase price. I am not happy about this experience.

Greatest vacuum ans cusomter service

By rcpepe54

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

I owned a Dyson for about 6 years. I have a large home and use it constantly. After about 6 years, it finally failed. I brought it to a store to have a fixed. They could not fix it, and tired to convince me to buy another brand, as they did not carry Dyson. I always thought that Dysons were priced high, but found that inferior vacuums are priced about the same. My wife insisted on another Dyson. We have used other vacuums in the past, but nothing picks up like the Dyson. Also, due to its ergonomic design, it moves around my house and under furniture with ease. We cannot image buying anything but Dyson vacuums.

Great Vacuum

By MIPP

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

I have always been skeptical about Dyson and there products claiming they are so much better than the competition. I never believed there advertising until i purchased a dc47 as a gift for Christmas for my mother. This vacuum maybe small but man can it clean and out perform any other vacuum i've ever had. It is very light maneuvers easily and the engineering that has gone into it is amazing. You can defiantly tell the engineers at Dyson know what they are doing. I have never owned a vacuum like this. The suction is incredible and i cannot believe the dirt this thing picks up. I though my home was clean until i purchased a Dyson vacuum and i quickly discovered how much dirt my old vacuum was missing. All i can say is i am a Dyson owner for life now!! Worth all the money, no bags and comes with a 5 year warranty. Great product!

I've always heard about how great Dyson vacuum are. When my dyson arrived, it was super easy to assemble and I was impressed how easy I can maneuver and how light it was!! It is not as loud as my old vacuum cleaners and it seems to be getting all the dirt and dust more since I can see how much stuff it sucked! I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

Lightweight & Powerful

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

ideal for a multi-story home, can easily be carried up and down multiple flights of steps. Unlike most "compact" vacuums I've owned before, this one performs as well as larger, heavier models. I'd recommend for seniors, anyone who has trouble lifting uprights. Also very easy to take apart and clean, with good instructions.

Not Happy

By wdavbell

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Compact Animal Canister Vacuum (DC47):

I had the upright version and it was impossible to clean my stairs even though the advertisement said it was easy. I purchased this little one so I could carry it up the stairs to clean them. The unit clogs with anything bigger than a small leaf. The head is so light it doesn't get anything beyond the top of the rug and its so light it hops and jumps so I have to hold the head down while vacuuming. The head has an odd feature where the air suction drives the brushes. It clogs every time I use it and it takes extremely long pinchers (I had to go out and find one that worked) to get the debris out. For the price I paid this vacuum it should be flawless.

Does all it says it will do, not used to the compact size and lighter weight of the DC47 and find that I am tipping it over. The control will come with time. Even with the lightweight design it does what it says it will do, This is my 2nd Dyson I still have my Upright which is still going strong but wanted a canister to match it. I will be a loyal Dyson customer from now on!!!!

Outstanding! The DC47 is so light weight and easy to move and carry. The floor brush get most everywhere in the house. The floor brush is so flexible, with a slight turn of my wrist the brush moves so easily. It is so easy to use, all parts are so convenient. For as small as it is, it has huge vacuuming power. The DC47 Animal far outperforms my expectations.
