It also has a mini turbine head for cleaning pet hair and dirt from confined spaces, upholstery, stairs or the car.


This Complete model has extra tools for specialised cleaning tasks. The Stubborn dirt brush has stiff bristles to clean dried-in dirt. The Flexi crevice tool extends into awkward gaps. And to clean spots and spills from carpets and upholstery, it comes with Dyzolv™ spot cleaner.

Q & As


Dyson DC41 Animal Complete Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Extra Tools, Blue 4.3 5 44 44
Makes hovering a joy if such a thing is possible! First of all as usual ordering and delivery of goods by John Lewis outstanding. This is a really impressive piece of equipment and will hover up the most testing of fluff. This is my first upright vac and I am impressed how easy it is to move around, though a big machine I have found it relatively light. Up to dyson's high standards. Would recommend for heavy duty areas 15 July 2014
Powerful, but........ More powerful than my previous Dyson upright and the flat, manoevreable head gets right into corners and to the edges of kitchen cupboards but you cannot wheel it on its back wheels without the cleaning head falling forward, you cannot clip tools to the body and dust etc clogs the inside of the cylinder which has to be dismantled every time you empty it. Very expensive. 09 July 2014
Feels more flimsy than my last one I bought the DC41 to replace a DC07 which suddenly gave up the ghost after 10 years reliable service. There is no doubt that the DC41 vacuums thoroughly. However, I personally find the whole thing feels a lot flimsier than my old Dyson and I can't imagine this one lasting 10 years. The bin is more tricky to open than my old one and somehow, more than once I have managed to end up with dust on the floor as I'm emptying it. Also, the vacuum cleaner sometimes needs a few shoves before it snaps back into the upright position. The flex seems to be longer than the old one which you might think would be an advantage, but actually I seem to end up with it round my feet quite regularly. On the plus side I like the fact you can see through to the brush as the plastic is clear. Also as it's flimsier means it's more light weight to carry up and down stairs than the old model. And the carpet stripes don't bother me - at least you can see that the room has been vacuumed. I suppose I thought 10 years on, Dyson would have made some amazing improvements and in my opinion they haven't, so I'm rather disappointed. Yes, it vacuums brilliantly, but so did my old one. 16 June 2014
Just what we expected Strong sucking power and vacuum and flexible handle to go everywhere. 03 June 2014
Most powerful vacuum yet. Great suction, good brushing, comprehensive tools. Does leave lines on some carpets, as other reviews have reported, but these soon disappear. Quite heavy - a frail, elderly person may struggle to carry it up stairs. 28 May 2014
Best vacuum cleaner ever! This is our second Dyson, but it's our first upright vacuum cleaner (have always opted for the cylinder design before now). This vacuum cleaner is awesome! It's performance is second to none, and the additional tools are excellent. Yes, it's heavier than some of the other Dyson models, however it's just as easy to manoeuvre. It does leave visible lines in our carpet after use, however this doesn't bother us in the slightest as it just demonstrates how it out performs any other vacuum cleaner we've had. Extremely happy with this purchase! 20 May 2014
Not Disappointed! After many years, I have replaced by old Dyson Animal with the new DC41 and could see straight away that the suction was much improved and it was much easier to manoeuvre. The pile on my rugs and carpets seem to have a new lease of life. The self adjusting cleaning head made light work of moving from my laminate floor to my rugs which meant that I no longer have to lift it to move it from one surface to the other. I can see a use for all the included attachments so I'm really please we bought this model. 19 May 2014
Disappointed with my Dyson Animal I have had this product,( my first ever Dyson) for about 3 weeks. The positive is that the suction and cleaning of carpets is very good as an upright machine - I have two cats which is why I chose it. and it makes light work of picking up the hairs. The bin is easy to empty and a joy not to have to use bags. Negatives: I find, is that the max. level of fill is about half the size of the cyllinder and if you go about this the dirt gets trapped between the inner and outer casings and difficult to remove. 'Animal' is an appropriate name here because using the attachments is like fighting a giant Cobra that wants to return to its den - the flexible hose is really difficult to hold out, making cleaning of the stairs and curtains a real struggle. There is no description on the instructions to say what each tool is best for. This may be on the box -which got thown away? Maybe the lesson here is to try it out first in store but wanted the speed and convenience of shopping online. Overall, I would not recommend this product for stairs but great for normal upright use on floors. 12 May 2014
