The Best Vacuum For Pet Owners: The Dyson DC15 Animal

By: Brad James

One of the biggest problems for pet owners is pet hair. If your pet sheds, you know all too well how their hair can get on and into just about anything, and can be quite difficult to remove completely from upholstery and carpeting. Realizing the market potential in pet hair cleanup, many popular vacuum manufacturers have created vacuums specially designed for this purpose. Bissell and Hoover each have a so-called pet vacuum that is designed to forcefully remove that stubborn embedded pet hair. However, it is a new vacuum by the revolutionary vacuum company, Dyson, which gets top honors for pet hair removal ability.

The DC15 “The Ball" Animal vacuum is one of the best selling vacuums by Dyson. Dyson vacuums are naturally efficient at sucking up dust and debris thanks to its never-clogging root cyclone technology. In short, the vacuum spins the incoming dirty air so fast that particles are literally thrown out of the air and into a collecting bin. The incoming wind tunnel never gets clogged with debris, so the vacuum does not lose suction. The result is astonishingly powerful suction that is capable of removing nearly everything from carpeting and other surfaces.

Added to the DC15 Animal’s raw suction power, is the vacuums special add-on attachment: the mini turbine head. The mini turbine head is specially designed to lift pet hair off of upholstery and carpeting. You know that pet hair on your couch you just can’t seem to get rid of? The mini turbine head makes short order of it. In addition to the mini turbine head, the vacuum is one of the few that comes with a special carpet care kit. The powder and liquid spray is great for getting out a variety of carpet stains, including those wonderful pet-related blemishes.

The DC15 is called “the ball" because of a very unique design feature: the vacuum maneuvers around on a single large ball at the base of the vacuum, rather than on typical wheels. The result is easier and better controlled twisting and turning around furniture and in tight spaces. The motor of the vacuum is actually located inside the ball, giving the vacuum a sturdy, low center of gravity.

As you can see, the Dyson DC15 Animal is the best bet when it comes to vacuums for pet owners. Despite it’s hefty price tag (around $500), most would agree that it is well worth the money.
