  • Product Overview

    The DC44 Animal is as unique as it is lightweight. This cordless vacuum has a long-reach wand that provides balanced cleaning from floor to ceiling—making it perfect for quick, flexible cleaning. A powerful motorized floor tool drives bristles deeper into carpet while a brush bar removes fine dust from hard floors, meaning this vacuum can clean any type of flooring. Radial Root technology provides constant, powerful suction, and 2 operating modes offer additional versatility.

    Balanced Cleaning

    Dyson’s patented Root Cyclone technology spins dust and dirt out of the air and into its bin without losing suction. Its digital motor is small, light, power-efficient, and spins up to 104,000 times a minute—which is faster than a car engine.

    The Dyson DC44 comes with a wand that’s just under 26 inches long to clean floors and ceilings—and everywhere in between. If you need a handheld vacuum for quick cleaning, you can attach the floor tool directly to the machine (by removing the wand), and easily turn it into a handheld vacuum.

    Increased Power and Run Time

    A motorized floor tool with 2 types of bristles makes it possible for this model to clean different surfaces. Ultra-fine, anti-static carbon fiber filaments grab fine dust particles from hard floors while stiff nylon bristles remove dirt and debris from carpets.

    The DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum also increased its run time to 20 minutes of high, constant power. Its Boost mode, which is designed for tougher cleans, runs for 8 minutes. Other vacuums claim a longer run time, but this model provides even power while it’s in use.

    Additional Features

    • Mini-Motorized Tool: A mini motorized tool comes with this vacuum and has increased power for tough tasks like removing pesky pet hair and dirt from confined spaces or upholstery.
    • Docking Station: The DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum comes with a docking station that stores the machine and attachments when it’s not in use. Its battery can also be charged in the docking station (but doesn’t have to be).
    • Lightweight Design: This model weighs only 5 pounds. Its detachable wand is made from lightweight aluminum, so you can clean high, low, and in awkward places.
    • Additional Tools: A crevice tool can be attached to remove dust and pet hair from couch cushions or upholstery, and a combination tool is also included.
    • Washable Filter: The Dyson DC44 includes a washable filter designed to remove and contain microscopic allergen particles as small as 0.5 microns, helping you allergy-proof your environment.
    • One-Touch Emptying: Empty dirt and debris easily and minimize contact with harmful allergens using the removable pushbutton canister.
    • Powerful and Durable: The Dyson DC44 is constructed with light, impact-resistant materials for easy handling and greater durability.
    • No Maintenance Costs: With no bags to replace and filters and belts designed to last longer than the life of the vacuum, this model has zero maintenance costs.


    You can forget about conventional cleaning with the DC44 Animal, which is battery-operated and cleans rooms from floor to ceiling. Additional cleaning tools, increased power, and balanced cleaning make this a great choice for quick, flexible cleaning.

    What Customers Love

    • Root Cyclone Technology: This technology means it won’t lose suction power and keeps allergens in the bin (and out of your air).
    • Floor Tool: The motorized floor tool attaches to the wand or directly to the machine, so this vacuum can be used as a handheld or reach awkward, hard-to-reach places.

    Things to Consider

    • Cordless: Some customers don’t want a battery-operated vacuum, and instead want one that uses a plug and has a cord.

    Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

    First off, I want to say I am writing this from the perspective of somebody living in a small one room apartment.

    Upon moving into this apartment, I realized out of necessity, that I needed a smaller vacuum. I just did not have the storage space to keep my old canister vacuum. After doing some research, I found that the problem with a lot of small, compact vacuums was that battery life was only about 20 minutes max. Well for me, this wouldn't be a problem, because with such a small space it only takes about 6-8 minutes to go through and clean the whole place.

    After using this vacuum, I now have to say that it is absolutely perfect for what I needed. It had great suction, picked up everything on my carpet and transitioned right into picking up everything on my hard floors without a hitch. After vacuuming the whole apartment, I still had plenty of battery life left, so I used the brush and crevice tools to finish off the corners and edges of my furniture.

    I would highly recommend this vacuum for anybody that lives in a small space but still has a lot to clean.

    Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

    My husband and I love this vacuum! We live in an industrial-style loft with mostly hardwood floors, and this Dyson fits our needs perfectly. The vacuum is easy to store (our loft doesn't have a lot of storage space!) and has the batter power to clean our entire loft.

    We use this vacuum a lot in the kitchen to clean up crumbs and dirt. The flexible head moves easily around our kitchen island to clean up a quick mess and maneuvers into all the corners of our kitchen for thorough cleaning. This vacuum also fits easily under our furniture, chairs and tables to eliminate dust bunnies, dirt and sand that my husband and I track into the house. For a quick cleanup in a smaller space, this is an ideal vacuum.

    The only drawback to this vacuum is that it is trigger-powered. While I didn't even notice, my husband said he didn't like having to hold down the trigger the entire time he was vacuuming.

    Dyson DC44 vs. Wet Paper Towel, Fight!

    Comments about Dyson DC44 Animal Cordless Vacuum:

    Great vacuum for what it is built for... and that is the key. This vacuum is designed for short usage (8 - 20 minutes of vacuuming) and for easy convenient spot cleaning. It is great at that.

    My quest begins several years ago.. My holy grail is making it easy to pickup food particles and general crud around my kitchen on a nightly basis. I started out wiping the floor around the table with a damp paper towel.. I bought a Rumba robotic vacuum. It was cool but it broke down after a couple of months. I went back to using a wet paper towel to wipe up crumbs and stuff. Then I bought a different cordless vacuum... it didn't have enough suction so I went back to using a wet paper towel... then I bought a corded but small profile vacuum.. had the suction.. but still found it easier to just use the wet paper towel then have to deal with a long cord for a quick cleanup. Finally, tried the Dyson. Easy to use? check. No cord. Can be wall mounted so easy to get to. Enough suction? Check. Problem solved and wet paper towel in the garbage.

    Negatives? I find that on "regular" mode it doesn't have a lot of punch.. so sometimes it doesn't pickup a particle that I swear I went over.. so I use "max" mode which is very good. But you only have 8 minutes at maximum.. so really, it is excellent for around the kitchen cleanup after a long day of 3 kids destroying your house. Not so great if you need to vacuum an entire home.

    Goodbye paper towel. You will not be missed.
