Product information

The Dyson DC39 Animal Complete is a full-size Dyson Ball™ cylinder vacuum. It moves differently to conventional cylinders because it sits on a ball – so it turns on the spot and follows your path more easily.

Built for powerful dirt and pet hair removal, it has Radial Root Cyclone™ technology with remodelled airways to maximise suction power. Its Triggerhead tool is the only turbine head controlled at the handle – so no bending down is required. It also has a mini turbine head for cleaning pet hair and dirt from those confined spaces.

For specialised cleaning tasks, it comes with a range of extra tools. The stubborn dirt brush has stiff bristles to remove hard-to-shift dirt. The articulating hard floor tool pivots 180° to clean under low furniture. And its flexi crevice tool extends into awkward gaps. To clean spots and spills from carpets and upholstery, it also comes with Dyzolv™ spot cleaner.

Key features of the DC39 Animal Complete include:

  • Radial Root Cyclone™ technology – maximises suction power
  • Triggerhead tool – controlled at the handle so no bending down
  • Ball™ technology – turns on the spot
  • Articulated central steering mechanism – for greater control
  • Engineered for reduced noise levels
  • Mini turbine head – cleans confined spaces and upholstery
  • Extra tools – Articulating hard floor tool, stubborn dirt brush and flexi crevice tool
  • Captures allergens, expels cleaner air
  • Quick and hygienic bin emptying
  • On-board combination tool and stair tool
  • Dyzolv™ spot cleaner – for carpets and upholstery
  • No extra costs – no replacement bags or filters to buy

Q & As


Special offer

    Trade-in any vacuum and receive money off a Dyson upright or cylinder machine.

    Conventional vacuums with bags clog and lose suction. Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are different. Patented cyclone technology spins dirty air at high speeds, flinging microscopic particles out of the airflow and into the bin. There’s no bag, so there’s no loss of suction.

    From 09 April to 27 May 2014, you can trade-in your old vacuum cleaner of any make and get money off brand new selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines. The trade-in offer is available at all participating John Lewis stores and through our website.

    All Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums come with a free 5-year guarantee – parts and labour. And because they have lifetime washable filters and there are no bags to buy, there are no extra costs.

    Terms and conditions:

    The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old vacuum cleaner he or she already owns by entering the promotional code DYSON80 at the end of checkout, and bringing their old vacuum cleaner to the small electrical department next time they visit a John Lewis store.

    If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old vacuum will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops. Offer ends 27 May 2014.

Great vacuum cleaner Bought this to update from DC08 cylinder bought in 2006, Love Dyson, very impressed with this - easy to assemble, comes with a range of tools, very easy to manoeuvre & great performance. Also great price & service from John Lewis 20 March 2014
DYSON ANIMAL I love this vacuum cleaner. It has a different head for different purposes and though some see this as a negative to have to keep changing, I have found the system is so much more efficient with the right head on. How hard is it to just change the head???? Actually it's simple and for people with pets or long hair that gets everywhere this really works. The animal gets in where others won't as head swivels to reach the smallest space. It needs to be emptied after every use in my house but it's easy to do and no costly bags to buy. I also wanted a vacuum to be lightweight and though there are lighter ones on the market the animal excels in what it was made for - cleaning, so. that made my choice easy. 19 March 2014
Better than older models ! Have had an upright type Dyson for eight years and it still works perfectly but decided the cylinder type would be more useful so decided on this model. Very pleased with it, its easy to use, gets into awkward places, great pick up, lightweight and very maneuverable. This model is quieter than my old model too and comes with loads of attachments, lead is stored within body of machine making it nice and tidy to store away. Would recommend !! 10 out of 10 !! 18 March 2014
An excellent piece of machinery!! Having been without an upright Dyson for a couple of years, I had the misfortune to use a couple of inherited alternative vacuum cleaners, although they did convert me to the idea of cylinders. I was rather nervous of investing in the DC39, due to a couple of reviews that were non too positive and therefore, I waited sometime before ordering. I have had the new Dyson for a couple of months now and with the exception of a slightly too short suction pipe for floors, it is faultless! My house is sparkling again and the amount of dust and hair collected on the first vacuum was incredible! The accessories make doing a 'full clean' a dream from getting into awkward or high places to the amazing turbo head for carpets. I need not have doubted or hesitated, vacuuming is at last a pleasure to do again!! Compact; quiet; manoeuvrable; long hose for stairs; versatility of tools & easy to change; easy to empty... 02 March 2014
Very efficient, easy to empty, great tools I decided to splash out on a new Dyson after a disastrous flirtation with a Vax machine which drove me mad with popping filters and clogging dirt-collector. Oh what a difference! Not only fantastic strong suction but it does not clog up and is very easy to empty out. The turbo head has a clever brush design that means it's much easier than before to clear off any wound up hair or other strands. And the additional tools are brilliant - the dust brush slides up the crevice nozzle so it can't be lost, and there is a wonderful thin attachment for getting into really small crannies. The spiders didn't see that one coming... Also easy to pull around. 06 November 2013
quicker, lighter, more powerfully efficient gets me done in less time more efficiently and effectively 27 October 2013
Terrible Tips over on corners and cable tangles around the ball. The hose is too short and I am only 1,60m tall. The bin is tiny! And you must use your hands to pull dust out! It just gets compressed to the walls of the bin and the only way to empty bin is to pick it with your fingers!!! And I do not believe that HEPA filter is actually the HEPA ! I washed this filter after EACH use but the air still smells of dust and makes everybody sneeze! The dust inside/around cylinders cannot be removed unless you keep tapping on them with a bin open! If you are after HEPA filtration and have asthma - do not buy! If you are after easy manoeuvrability - do not buy! If you have a lower back problem - do not buy 09 October 2013
Love it!. Would recomend. Having owned a used Dyson DC02 which my dad brought on ebay quite sometime ago now, I thought I would get a nice new one. Even though the DC02 still works perfectly, made in 1995 still going strong, over 15 years old and still works like new, amazing. The DC39 Animal is definitely way much better. The suction is much more powerful, the cleaner head actually clamps down onto the carpet, picks alot more dirt, Is actually alot more quiter, lighter alot more easyier is everyway. It's a brilliant hoover I keep going on at my dad to use it, he hasent actually used it yet, even though I brought it for him, well it's kind of a present to him, from me, to me lol. The brush bar has been improved, you can remove the whole thing, just need a 2p coin, unscrew the side pull the bar out, remove any hair ect and screw it up again easy and its a very nice feature. If your looking for a very powerful cylinder vacuum this is for you. However people will always find issues and then blame the product or the world. So if you find the suction to much, pull the ring built into the handle to allow more air in and that will reduce the power to the head. Emptying the bin, believe it or not that is dust you have in that in that cylinder, and if you should mistreat it, it shall fly around and get you. The clever thing to do if your afraid of dust, is get a shopping bag, press the release button catch the lit before it flys open. and gentle tap the dust into the bag, then the bag into the bin, job done, or to release the dust as gentle as possible. Have had 5 months and wouldnt change it for the world. 07 October 2013
