Worth it's weight in gold!!!!
from Waterton Park
I wrote a review in October after I'd had the vacuum for a short while. Two of my dogs are rescues and one is very skittish. My other dog is a pomeranian and a nervous Nelly!! Finally broke down and had my husband help me hold the dogs so I could try the dog brush attachment. Got more hair off my 10 lb rescue in about 8 strokes than the 3 years we've had her brushing her regularly with a slikker brush. The collie, couldn't believe the hair that came off her. The Pom, can only get afew strokes then she's had enough. But even those few strokes were amazing. Don't know what it is, maybe having the suction at the same time as the brushing, but what an amazing tool. If you have shedding dogs and you haven't tried the dog brushing attachment, try it!! You'll be amazed!!!!! The vacuum was worth the price just for this tool!! I only need help with the Pom now, the other two dogs are pretty much use to it now!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not a fan
By Need another vacuum
from SMALL TOWN AB
It's been 9 months since I purchased this and I still don't like it. It's awkward; it's heavy; it doesn't go under furniture; it doesn't pick up pebble type debris and it's way over priced for what it is. It's going in the next garage sale.
Dyson never Fails
from Bowmanville, Ontario
Ordered the Animal when it was the Showstopper and can't say enough about what a deal this was. I did a lot of homework before ordering and found TSC to offer the best price with the best bundle. Can't say enough about Dyson quality. This one isn't my first. The first one lasted longer then my last house and it was time for an upgrade. I would never buy anything but Dyson and the Animal proved my point. This machine is amazing. LOVE IT !! Fabulous quality, light weight, easy to use, exceptional results and a fantastic price. Doesn't get any better then this.
The best vacuum ever!!
from London Ontario
I purchased the DC43 just a couple weeks ago and I am so glad I did. When I seen it on the shopping channel and what came with it, I hesitated but only for a couple hours. I already had a DC14 and DC29 absolute, which I was very happy with. I only have a 2 floor house but I knew passing on this, I would kick myself if I didn't get this one. All the attachments make vacuuming much easier. The hose part is a little stiff but like everything else, the more you use it, the easier it will get. I have 4 cats, 3 of which are longhaired, and there is no hesitation on either of these vacuums picking it up. The DC14, I have had for 4 years and it still works like new, and im sure the DC43 will be the same. Hopefully this will come back to the shopping channel, as now a friend of mine is regretting not getting one when it was on sale. ( I sold my DC29 absolute, cause who really needs 3 vacuums) I would highly recommend Dyson, as I have done in the past to anyone.

Grear Product But Not for The Elderly
from Belleville, ON
Ordered the showstopper because I required a new vacuum since my old one was not doing the job too well.I had heard and seen ads about how great the Dyson was so decided to give it a try.The vacuum is great and lives up to its potential but just one thing when I tried it out found it to be extremely heavy for me to manouver being an advanced senior who still likes to do own housework.The showstopper deal was great and would recommend it but not for the elderly.
This vacuum is an ANIMAL
I bought this as the Showstopper & I am soooo glad that I did. After getting it all put together I plugged it in & began vacuuming the floor rug near the cat box. I was stunned that I did not have to pick up anything, it moved over the edges of the carpet like nothing was there, the suction unbelievable. When I was done that 5x6 rug I was dumbfounded what the Dyson picked up because my husband vacuumed the day before with the old vacuum!!! Yes everyone needs to have one of these!!!
from Morden, MB
I was so excited to see this as a showstopper because my central vac just died. Wow sums it up. when I received my Dyson, I assembled it in about 5 minutes and the additional tools add awesome value to my purchase. I love the bag that came with it to store all those wonderful tools. This vacuum is very easy to use, it has incredible suction and easy to empty. I have used almost all the tools to optimize the productivity of this vacuum. The reach on the hose allows me to reach up to my 9 foot ceilings without having to climb. I can't say enough positive things for this vacuum. Another plus is the super long cord, I only have to change outlets twice to get all of my vacuuming done in my 1330 sf house.
What a Buy!
from Saint John (New Brunswick)
This vacuum was a Godsend in my apartment. Other vacuums would die within a month trying to keep with cleaning up after 3 boys and 2 cats. Not the case at all with the Dyson. Between the carpet and hard floor capabilities, and all the gadget's that come with it. No mess get's left behind. Carpets, floors, furniture, dust, pets, everything. You get what you pay for! Buy this product, you won't be disappointed. We actually fight over who get's to vacuum now because everyone wants to!
Best vacuum by far
from Sudbury, ON
I bought the DC43 Animal Upright Bundle, with 6 easy payments. This machine is so powerful, my area rug is two shades lighter and like the other reviews, I could not believe the hair that it extracted from my carpets. I have a golden retriever (big shedder)and I am so pleased with my new purchase. I also love the soft dusting tool, my furniture is leather and this is the perfect tool to use. I've recommended this Dyson to everyone. Well worth the price. I'm a happy camper.
