- Lightweight Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner designed for homes with pets.
- DC25 Animal is a lightweight Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner that uses patented Root Cyclone technology for no loss of suction. It has been engineered for powerful pet hair removal throughout the house, with a motorised brush bar for carpets and a mini turbine head tool for tight spaces like stairs, upholstery and the interior of your car.
- DC25 Animal also includes patented Ball technology, which allows you to steer with ease around obstacles such as furniture and household appliances. It rides on a ball, so there's no more pushing back and forth to turn corners.
- At just 7.4kg, DC25 Animal is one of Dyson's lightest full-size uprights.
DC25 Animal includes:
- Ball technology to help you steer with ease
- The components that make up a Dyson Ball
- The motor is housed inside the ball to lower the machine's centre of gravity. View larger
Have you ever got frustrated pushing an ordinary upright vacuum cleaner back and forth, back and forth to steer around furniture and other obstacles? Have a look underneath it, and you'll see that's because it sits on fixed wheels - perfect if all you want to do is travel in a straight line, but not so good at corners. Frustration is an important source of invention for Dyson engineers - it sparks new ideas, new ways of solving problems. It was their frustration with fixed wheels that led them to develop a new way of turning corners.
Dyson Ball upright vacuum cleaners use patented Ball technology to overcome the steering limitations of fixed wheels. They ride on a ball, which pivots around itself so you can steer with ease, changing direction with just a turn of the wrist. The idea for Ball technology came about from a Dyson engineer studying new ways to steer. It started crudely - an old wand handle attached to a wheel. Eventually the wheel became a ball - and an ideal home for the motor.
The ball itself is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene - the same material used in the manufacture of car dashboards. It combines high impact strength with resistance to distortion. The ball is also where you'll find the motor. By putting the motor inside the ball, at a neutral point, Dyson engineers were able to lower the machine's centre of gravity and improve manoeuvrability even more.

Motorised brush bar for powerful pet hair removal
DC25 Animal has a motorised brush bar for removing dirt and pet hair that have lodged deep inside carpets. The stiff bristles on the brush bar spin at high speeds - up to 90 times per second - to agitate the carpet pile and dislodge dirt and pet hair so that it can be vacuumed up and removed. Don't worry if you also have hard floors or delicate rugs - the brush bar can be turned off so you can use DC25 Animal on these surfaces too.
Mini turbine head tool to clean pet hair from tight spaces
Pet hairs don't just accumulate on carpets. They also get stuck on upholstery, beneath furniture, on stair carpets, inside your car... Powered by your Dyson vacuum's suction, the Mini turbine head tool attaches to the wand to remove pet hair from confined spaces. It lets you get into all those awkward spots you couldn't otherwise reach. You'll find it invaluable to make sure your home and car are free from fur.
Quick-draw Telescope Reach wand for cleaning stairs and other high-reach areas
When you want to clean awkward-to-reach spots like stairs and ceilings, you can use the quick-release wand on your DC25 Animal. It extends by 16ft quickly and easily, with no awkward components to assemble. You can also attach tools and accessories, such as the Mini turbine head tool that comes with DC25 Animal, extending your cleaning abilities even further.
Clear bin lets you see when it needs emptying
The bin on a Dyson vacuum cleaner is transparent so you can see when it needs emptying - and just how much dust, dirt and pet hair your new Dyson machine has picked up. Emptying is quick and hygienic - just press the button to release the dirt.
Washable HEPA filter for clean expelled air
DC25 Animal includes a sealed HEPA (High-Efficiency Particle Air) filter - the same filter used by hospitals - to trap tiny particles as small as 0.1 microns. That's about the size of a single particle of cigarette smoke. Particles this small include common household allergens such as pollen, mould spores and dust mite faeces.
The air expelled by DC25 Animal contains up to 150 times less mould and bacteria than the air you breathe. And because the filter is washable you won't need to replace it. Just give it a rinse once every 3 months with cold water.
Approved for allergy sufferers
Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are approved by 12 allergy associations worldwide, including the British Allergy Foundation (BAF) and Allergie Suisse. Allergie Suisse approval is one of the most stringent in the world. To secure it, vacuums have to provide constant suction and separation performance so that they don't lose effectiveness while you clean.
No bags to throw away
The bags in ordinary vacuum cleaners clog with dust and dirt which can cause loss of suction. After a while the suction can fall so low you have to replace the bag - and throw the old one away. A lot of vacuum cleaner bags these days are made from a mixture of plastic and paper, which means you can't recycle them. Like a lot of waste, they end up in landfill, where they take years to decompose.
With a Dyson vacuum, you can simply detach the clear bin and empty it onto the compost heap. Biodegradable dust and fluff will be broken down naturally into useful fertiliser. With no bags to replace, you won't be adding to the landfill problem.
No extra costs
Other vacuum cleaners are still designed to need replacement bags and filters - and the cost soon adds up. Over 5 years, you could end up having to spend up to £175. Dyson vacuum cleaners don't need bags and have lifetime washable filters, so there are no extra costs to worry about.
You'd be amazed at some of the tests Dyson carry out on their machines to make sure they're as tough and reliable as possible. During development, a push/pull rig moves Dyson vacuum cleaners a minimum of 4,452,651 feet. The hose is kinked 7,280 times. The bin is opened 1,560 times. Upright vacuum cleaners undergo 207 different validation tests, cylinders 235. That's why Dyson are so confident in their machines they guarantee all their uprights and cylinders for 5 years - parts and labour.
Dyson engineers are constantly testing and inventing, trying to find new ways to make their technology work better. As they work, they file patent applications to protect their inventions from copycat manufacturers. That's why the only place you'll find Dyson technology is inside a Dyson machine.
Root Cyclone technology for no loss of suction
Ordinary vacuum cleaners rely on bags and filters to trap dust and dirt. Air is meant to flow through tiny holes, leaving dust and dirt behind. The problem is that when you use them, these tiny holes quickly clog up with particles of dust. This chokes the flow of air, so the vacuum cleaner loses suction.
Dyson vacuum cleaners don't rely on bags to trap dust and dirt. They use patented Root Cyclone technology, which spins the air at high incredibly high speeds. The cyclones inside a Dyson vacuum cleaner generate centrifugal forces many thousands of times the force of gravity. Dust, dirt and pet hair are flung out of the airflow and straight into the clear bin. No bags, no loss of suction.
