Suzie Homemaker, I am not.
My mom, who is likely reading this post right now, will cringe as I outline in detail just what a domestic failure I am.
I’m sorry mom. And to my other readers, I promise, it’s not her fault I’m such a slob. She raised me well, nagged me incessantly about my clutter, and to this day, you can eat off her floors (and frequently, my boys do). However, somewhere along our family’s path to evolution, I may have missed that gene that allows me to recognize a messy home.
Oh, let’s be honest. It bypassed me completely.
So when people talk about weekly cleaning, my eyes begin to glaze over. Of course I clean my home weekly! From top to bottom, yes. But the truth is, my home gets cleaned when I ask my husband to do it. And he does, because he’s a lovely man who realizes that when I’m not cleaning, I’m working my butt off and being the best mom to my boys. (At least that’s what I hope he thinks.)
But I have a theory. If you can’t clean like a pro – then use pro equipment to make up for your
Introducing the Dyson Big Ball Animal 2. Simply put, it has the strongest suction of any other vacuum in Canada. This brand new addition to Dyson’s already stacked lineup features a self-adjusting cleaner head to seal in suction across carpets and hard floors. Ball technology allows easy manoeuvring around furniture and obstacles, and the quick release hose and wand stretches to clean high places and awkward gaps.
I’ve owned Dyson vacuum cleaners in the past. Here’s my endorsement: this one is the best to date.
Advanced Radial Root Cyclone technology channels airflow through the center of the cyclone assembly. This maximizes suction to capture more microscopic dust. Since we recently refinished our upstairs flooring by replacing the carpet with engineered hardwood, microscopic dust is a thing… and the Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 eliminates it effortlessly. In fact, this is what our vacuum cleaner picked up after our floors were swept. Yikes! I’m sure you don’t want to see what the canister looked like after we vacuumed our rugs. *Shudder*
With four allergy sufferers in our household including one asthmatic, I know I need to stay on top of our housecleaning routine, and the sheer volume of dust, dirt and debris picked up by the Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 is a reminder that I need to increase my efforts. Thankfully, the vacuum is engineered for tough cleaning across all floors, which makes cleaning carpets, wood floors, vinyl and tile a breeze.
And by the way – isn’t it a beaut?
Of course, since it’s a Dyson, it comes with all the bells and whistles you’ll need for a whole home clean. Included is a tangle-free turbine tool, a Dyson Groom tool, articulating hard floor tool, Stiff bristle brush, combination tool and stair tool. Most of the attachments are quite interchangeable and you’ll soon determine which one is best for the job at hand.
Me, for example? I use the stiff bristle brush to power through caked on dirt along our window panes. Or maybe my husband does that and I took the photos. Same thing, right?
Now, you may be thinking, Oh Lena, you’re clearly pro-Dyson. But I’ve never owned one before – how do you know I’ll love it? Fair question! And you’re in luck – thanks to Dyson Canada, we tested that theory.
I had the unique opportunity to gift a Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 to a friend or family member who had never before owned a Dyson vacuum. Instantly, I thought of my friend Ingie, who has two children, a very large dog, and a combination of flooring throughout her home. I could post a long, detailed review from Ingie, but I think a screenshot from a recent text conversation does most of the talking.
Still not convinced? Here’s what else Ingie had to say:
“I’m not sure why we never thought to own a Dyson – I guess we figured that by spending a few hundred dollars on another vacuum, it would get things clean enough. However, after using the Dyson Big Ball Animal 2, I realize that clean enough is not good enough. We are so impressed with the suction and the vacuum’s ability to perform just as well on carpet as it does tile. The handy attachments are great for upholstery and hard to reach places, too! Love this vacuum and now believe in the #DysonClean.”
The Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 retails for $599.99. More information can be found on dyson.ca.
Love what you see? Stay tuned for a very special giveaway! If you’re ready to experience #DysonClean for yourself, you won’t want to miss it.
This post is sponsored by Dyson Canada. In exchange for my honest review, I was gifted a Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 for myself and one for a friend. The opinions on this blog, as always, are my own.
I absolutely love that it’s like an air cleaner and vacuum in one machine. Dyson Big Ball Animal would be a miracle in a house of 8 rescued cats and men who track in dirt!
Agreed! I love this vacuum!
This would be an awesome vacuum to have and would put my old cheap vacuum to shame!!
love to win this as the current one does not have enough power and the others we had were breaking
I’ve dreamed of owning a Dyson and now that I’ve seen this one – I want it! I don’t own a vacuum and have been trying to save up for a Dyson – just hasn’t happened yet -lol- One day I’ll own one – one day! LOL
Honestly i would love to own a Dyson but it never seems to be in my budget but this one is an air cleaner & vacuum all in one machine,sure sounds like an addition i need to invest in !
This vacuum sounds like a dream! I love that it works equally amazing on carpet as well as hardwood floors. Dyson never disappoints!
My current vacuum is a hand me down from my mom (yikes already , right?) and has a nasty habit of ripping some of the stitches off my carpet ! Noooo! Would be a huge help with my dogs shedding as well!
Our vacuum is giving up but although I would love a Dyson at this point we cant justify that sort of spend. I wish we could though.
I’ve never owned a Dyson before but would love to invest in this Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 with all its bells and whistles and thorough cleaning power!
My mother in law is on her second Dyson, and she loves them. I, on the other hand, own 3 hand me down vacuums that I try to pass off as one decent one. I’d like to just get rid of the three of them and own a vacuum from this decade that has the proper amount of suction!
oh I am totally ready to experience the Dyson for myself! I have always wanted a dyson vacuum! I have the dyson fan and know how great that works ! this thing is quite the machine and my vacuum could use an upgrade
I don’t own a Dyson but my daughter has one which I used a couple of times on my visits. They sure do have a lot of suction compared to my old vacuum.
In the market for a new vacuum and this looks like a fantastic one!
Dyson’s are a dream vacuum! We have one of the original Dyson’s and it has been great but I am afraid to say it is starting to finally wear out, definitely not cleaning up the cat hair as good as it once did. But then it is YEARS old.
Awesome! I’ve never tried a Dyson but have heard wonderful things. I think it would make me want to clean more often than I do now ;-)
This sounds like the vacuum for me. We have a long haired dog and it is hard to keep.
I really could have use for this one as my back is killing me. So that means have mercy on me!
I’d love to try out the Dyson animal vacuum since we have two dogs who are BIG shedders.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about Dyson vacuums! Would love to put it to the test!
OMG I have so been wanting one of these.
I dont own a Dyson because we still use our family owned vaccum of 30 years. Only difficulty I find are stairs, corners and windows. Which I can sweep just ‘enough’ . Is this light enough to move swiftly?
Wow!!I’d love to try out the Dyson animal vacuum since we have two cats, two dogs ant they loose hair all the times on my carpets and my floors! OMG Dyson’s are a dream vacuum!
I have old electric vacuum, I really need a new technology and I think Dyson it’s the best! Thanks for the chance, pick me up please!
I am envious of people with Dyson vacuums. I will say, My vacuum sucks! And they say, no your vacuum does not suck until you get a Dyson! Love your review, it sucks! ????????????
Wow! I love everything about this vacuum cleaner.It cleans the air as it’s cleaning the floors or whatever your vacuuming.It’s so worth every invested cent!
A dyson is on my household toys wishlist! Planning on having a few fur babies so it will come in handy for sure!
I havean Upright, and its too heavy for me to push, I suffer from chronic severe arthritis, and need a vacuum that I can use, I love the Ball, total genius with Dyson. so Thankyou so much for this chance.Love It
I have added this amazing machine to my wishlist,i would so love to own one.
Our daughter has a Dyson and loves it, so we would love to try out this one since we have 2 shedding dogs.
This looks amazing. My current vacuum is okay, but bulky and doesn’t have the best suction to deal with cat hair!
Yes a Dyson is on my dream list.
Seriously, how cool is the Dyson brand?? The technology of their products is incredible. This vacuum would be a dream the way it can get around without being heavy. And the suction power would be amazing compared to my current brand!
It must be like heaven to own one of these Dysons. I could just imagine how much dirt it would pick up from my floor and put me to shame but I wouldn’t care had I got a wonderful Dyson like this one. :-)
I share that gene with you, maybe a shiny Dyson would help. LOL
I have a huge white dog and she leaves fur everywhere. I cannot get the fur off of the carpet. Sounds like this is the Vacuum I need.

I’ve been trying to win this vacuum for years and although I haven’t won yet I keep trying because I have a cat and a dog and the fur is terrible even though I vacuum and sweep a few times a week, I know this Dyson can do a way better job.
I do like Dyson products for their efficiency.
I need this vacuum.
I got to see this amazing dyson first hand when i visited my daughter in May she has one and loves it and believe me after using it i could tell why.
I’ve actually now invested in a Dyson canister vacuum cleaner – one short sweep over the hallway carpet, my wool rug in the living- room and my tiny bathroom and I was shocked at how much dirt it had picked up. So much better than my old vacuum, I’m really glad I bought it.
This looks like a great vacuum that can get any job done!
I would love to own a Dyson. I think they do a great job.
I have always wanted a Dyson vacuum. They look so durable and they do a great job!
My son has a Dyson and loves it and I have only heard good reviews about them.
My sister owns one of the smaller stick ones. My daughter owns a canister type. I’m envious of them both.
I have a Dyson on my wist list lets hope Santa leaves one under the tree
It looks like a new generation of vacuum, I still use Dyson the older version.
I still dream of owning a Dyson!
I love the Dyson products, the work very well
One day I’ll own a Dyson :)
