Product information

The Dyson DC41 Animal Complete is an upright vacuum cleaner with Ball™ technology for turn-on-the-spot manoeuvrability. It has numerous features to assist all-round dirt and pet hair removal. These include a self-adjusting cleaner head that maintains optimal contact with any floor type – reducing leaks and sealing in suction power. 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.


Like all Dyson vacuums, DC41 Animal Complete has Radial Root Cyclone™ technology, with remodeled airways to maximise suction power. And with a washable HEPA filter, it captures allergens and expels cleaner air.

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 DYSON110 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.

Does wonders for your love life This is an amazing product. It's brought new life to our carpet, it's quite new so is still pilling, it gets all of it, I used to have to do it by hand. The tools make doing the stairs much easier. It's so easy to use I now vacuum naked which my husband seems to like too. Like I said has brought life into our carpet and our marriage. 16 April 2014
Excellent Fantastic Hoover. Very easy to manoeuvre and picks up so much dirt and dust. Also lots of very useful attachments. Would recommend 08 April 2014
Excellent vacuum cleaner The Dyson DC41 Animal is a fantastic vacuum cleaner far better than my old DC4. The extra manoeuvrability by having the ball steering function makes it so easy to use as well as it being fairly lightweight. Overall an excellent buy and great service from John Lewis for click & collect service. 26 March 2014
Carpets look like a lawnmower was used on them I have been a Dyson user for many years and have always been very happy. I bought this machine two days ago and used it yesterday. It leaves lots and lots of deep marks on my carpets - looks like I have used a rotary blade on them repeatedly. I have tried it on various carpets (all of them wool, none long haired) with the same effect. I rang Dyson today and was told this lawnmower effect is a 'feature' of the design of the product - not a fault. That this is part of the 'performance' of the machine. This feature is not listed anywhere that I can see and certainly not something I would ever expect from a vacuum cleaner. If I could give this a zero rating then I would. I will never buy another Dyson product. 26 March 2014
Dyson DC41 Complete upright vacuum cleaner This product is powerful and relatively easy to maneuver. So far I am very pleased with my purchase. 25 March 2014
Disappointing product Excellent suction, apart from that, difficult to use especially if you have any problem with your Wrist or back. Leaves very bad marks on the carpet, there are definitely bad design faults, ie snapping it upright is very difficult, bin is too small, debris forces bin open leaving mess on the floor, feels very flimsy, not convinced it will last as long as my old Dyson. Overall wish I had not purchased it. 25 March 2014
Dyson DC41 Animal Complete This is not the first Dyson that I have owned, but it is probably the best I have had to date. The suction is un-believable, and its a dream to use. You get loads of tools, but not enough on-board storage for them all, so in the cupboard some will have to live. But overall I would buy one again. 18 March 2014
Makes light work of chocolate labrador hairs This is the only vaccum which has coped with my dog's hairs - so far so good! Hope it lasts! 18 March 2014
