Complaint / review text:
I have never owned a vacuum as bad as the Dyson animal. The vacuum doesn't have any strength to its vacuum suction at all. When using the hose portion it will partially suck a piece of something off the floor then drop it back down unless you cover the end piece with your hand so it will suck it into the canister. The vacuum also requires cleaning of multiple areas after each use so it will halfway vacuum for the next use. The canister of course has to be cleaned out, the filter inside has to be cleaned out (because it gets clogged with dust, fibers, and pet hair), the beater brush casing has to be cleaned out because things gets stuck in and around it, and there is a spot I found underneath the vacuum where a hose that attaches to the canister also gets clogged. After you clean all these parts you have to sweep again with a sweeper that doesn't have much suction because you have made a mess cleaning out the vacuum. Ridiculous.
