I love this vacuum. I have been using a Rainbow for 18 years due to my daughter's asthma. I can't believe how much dirt this thing picks up since I have ben using what was supposed to be the best vacuum! I have three cats and two dogs inside and I am pleased with the power of the dyson. I did not get the animal because I have very little carpet (bedrooms only) so I chose the 'All Floors" instead. I give it a 4 because I think it could do a little better on the hardwoods and the hose is not very usuable but I can get along walls and into corners with it. Overall I am enjoying using it much more than the old one which required filling with water and emptying each time. I purchased a refurbished model after reading the reviews and I can't tell it's been used.

This vacuum really is the best at getting up pet hair and dander! We have two dogs in a carpeted studio apartment, and we bought this vacuum when our old vacuum died. The difference between this one and our old vacuum is like night and day - this Bissell sucks up probably 10x more pet hair and leaves our carpet softer and cleaner than it has ever been. I'm very glad that I decided on this vacuum, and I highly recommend it to all pet owners!

I am and have been recommending this to pet owners. I also own a Windtunnel, but thy Dyson animal works better, i think, for the animal hair in the carpets.

As my old vacuum recently died and my cat began shedding its winter coat, it was time to upgrade to the bigtime in vacuum cleaners - Dyson. The day I got this thing I put it to the test and went through every attachment, cleaning everything in sight, including my cats scratch post house thing that she lays on and was coated in her hair. This vacuum had no problem whatsoever picking the hair up off of anything. I cannot recommend it more for pet owners!

I got my vacuum last night and started on the upstairs where I had just vacuumed earlier after I used this vacuum I got a whole additional bucket!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Today I tried it on the stairs which I have always dreaded because other vacuums don't have a stair attachment; I used this one and got (ashamed to say) 3 buckets of dog hair and dirt! It works great on hardwood and is easy to maneuver.I have three dogs and my house now looks like a show room house and I have white carpets! Thanks Bissell.

I actually love to clean my house again. I had a rainbow vacuum and it did a great job but it was a pain to get out and put water in it and then lug it around the house and empty all the time and refill with water. The dyson is lite and so easy to use. I love how it picks up my 2 cats fur on everything! I will spread the word! Thanks, one happy customer.

This is the best vacuum I have ever owned and I have had an Electrolux, Dirt Devil, Dyson, Shark, Kenmore, Hoover, and a less espensive Bissell. Before I describe this product let me inform you to never buy a Dyson, Shark, or Eureka if you live in the United States because you cannot buy replacement parts. I learned this the hard way. Also, vacuums (no matter what brand) are made to last 18 months to 2 years. Another thing I have learned the hard way. That is why buying a refurbished vacuum at this price is a smart decision and buying a Bissell where you can easily get replacement parts is one as well. This vacuum is amazing. It has all of the cyclonic suction of a Dyson and is much more functional. It is not only an upright but it is a canister as well. It is so convenient to be able to lift off the center and leave the clumsyness of the upright behind. It is the best of both worlds. If you are a pet owner it will change your life ( at least, the smell of your house). It picked up dog hair from my medium pile carpet that my Shark left behind. I highly recommend this vacuum (and I am an avid twice a day vacuumer) to everyone. I also recommend after purchasing it that you order the Universal Pet Hair Vacuum Tool from Bissell (about $35). If Overstock does not have it Bissell's official site does. This set of 2 attachments is amazing for stairs and pet beds. It is several inches wider than the one already attached to the vacuum. Also, I ordered from Bissell for $14.99 a bare floor attachment. I lift off the the vacuum from the center and add the bare floor attachment and it is a light, easy, and effective way to vacuum my wood and tile floors. With the amazing Overstock refurbished price and the very reasonable Bissell extra attachments I purchased there is not another vacuum that can compare out there. For the first time I am completely happy with my vacuum and will replace it with another one of the same when the time comes.

This vacuum is amazing. I have wanted a Dyson for quite some time. After doing much research on the models available, I decided to go with the DC25 Animal since we have 2 dogs at home that shed excessively. This vacuum picks up hairs in areas that a normal vacuum could not. I happened to receive it the day before we were scheduled to have our house professionally cleaned. After the cleaning crew left, I decided to run the DC25 over the carpets that had just been freshly vacuumed. The amount of dirt and hair that it picked up was incredible. I would highly recommend this vacuum for pet owners especially. It lived up to its hype and is well worth the investment. Easy to use, easy to maneuver, easy to clean.

Very, very pleased so far. Vacuum did arrive one day later than quoted but not a big deal. Easy to assemble, up and running within 5 minutes of opening the box. We have a very fluffy Husky mix and two cats so hair builds up fast on our mostly carpeted floors. Had borrowed a vacuum before it arrived and this one STILL picked up a TON of hair and dirt that the other had missed. It also cleans spiky sandburs out of the carpet fibers with ease!! Extension tool works really well and adds significant reach. Edging tool works perfectly. Also came with a special pet hair tool (yay!) and a two sided brush attachment. Canister is very easy to clean. Rollers don't clog up. It is light and easy to maneuver and feels like it propels its self along going both backward and forward. Only complaint is that the handle comes unattached. It came off at one point as I balanced the vacuum with it while using the extension tool. The handle does fit on quite snugly so I'm hoping that was a one time quirk. All in all, an excellent vacuum for the price. Now to see how many years I can get out of it!
