I have a rather peculiar admission—I love to vacuum. In fact, if I could vacuum the entire house from top to bottom every day without being considered an unreasonable neat freak, I absolutely would. Which, of course, is why I won't be passing up the massive deal I just found on the Dyson V8 Animal Extra vacuum ($469; $350), which comes with *eight* accompanying tools. And you shouldn't either, especially if you have dogs or cats in the house. The lean, mean, cordless cleaning machine is on sale for nearly $120 off at QVC right now, and if you're a first-time shopper on the site, you can even score an *additional* $10 off your order with code NEWQ10.

Like the regular Dyson V8 vacuum ($470), the V8 Animal Extra features detangling technology that automatically clears any pet hair from the brush bar, as well as a powerful motorbar cleaning head and whole-machine filtration that purports to trap 99.99 percent of airborne particles. However, the Animal Extra model does come with a few more attachments than the standard V8 and other Dyson vacuum variations. What are those bonus tools you ask? Oh, just a mini soft dusting brush for delicate surfaces and fabrics, a stubborn dirt brush for caked-on messes, a mattress tool for cleaning your bed and an up-top tool and extension hose for getting into especially hard-to-reach places. Ah, music to my cleanliness-loving ears.

What’s more, the lightweight vac includes two different modes, powerful suction and max, which you can alternate between. Choosing the powerful suction mode means you’ll get up to 40 minutes of run time when using non-motorized tools, which should give you plenty of time to tackle all your pet messes and then some. 


If you're still not sold on whether or not it lives up to the hype, just take it from those who have made the splurge. “This is absolutely the best vacuum I’ve ever owned,” says one of the nearly 1,500 QVC shoppers who have given the V8 Animal Extra a rave 5-star review. “This [one] has the most suction and the best tools ever! I’ve now used all of them. My favorite new tool is the extension hose as I can finally get the crevice tool into the dryer lint trap...I also really like the up-top adapter. I have two large dogs that shed a lot, and their hair would get stuck in the previous version of this vacuum, that doesn’t happen any more.”

Yep, this baby sounds like an excellent addition to my cleaning closet—and yours. But we'll all have to act fast if we want to grab this anti-tangle, pet-hair-clearing pro for a total steal, because this deal won't be on for long. See ya at checkout!
