Brüggli 4pets ProLine TÜV approved dog cage Cerberus L - RETURNED

Code: REBGPL053

4pets ProLine cages are the smartest looking, best designed and best made dog cages that we have seen anywhere.

What makes them even more special is that they've been designed for safety - they've been crash tested and approved by the German TÜV.

This page shows the Cerberus L.

4pets ProLine cages are the smartest looking, best designed and best made dog cages that we have seen anywhere.

They're also the first dog crates to have been crash tested and approved by the German testing organisation TÜV SÜD. To our knowledge they are still the only crates to have been approved by TÜV to these standards.

This page shows the ProLine Cerberus L, a double cage with two doors and a removable central divider, suitable for two medium to large dogs. It's 96.5cm wide, 68.6cm high, and 93.5cm long.

Crash-tested safety: Safety is right at the core of the 4pets ProLine concept, the idea that you’ve done all you can to minimise the risks of injury to your dog when out in the car and, very importantly, to the driver and passengers. The facts are that at 30 mph your dog has a mass that’s 25 times its body weight, so it will be a potentially very deadly projectile in the event of an emergency stop or crash. A typical black Labrador would have the equivalent force of three quarters of a tonne. The majority of wire cages and dog guards are next to useless in these circumstances – they’re designed to separate dogs from people without much if any thought about what forces they’ll withstand; most cages and dog guards are, fundamentally, not designed to keep people safe.

Special features:

  • Shape: ProLine crates are shaped at front and back to maximise the internal space that's available for your dog, so they'll tuck in tight behind the rear seat, be full length of the boot, and still allow the tailgate to be closed.
  • Construction: Anodized aluminium poles, fibreglass reinforced plastic corners with no sharp edges, scratch resistant laminated fibreboard sides, acid resistant plastic floor tray with a removable, washable anti-slip floor mat. Made in Switzerland.
  • Maintenance free: All parts are maintenance free; the hinges are made from a self-lubricating plastic-graphite alloy. They should last for as long as you want them to – years and years. In any event, all parts are replaceable as spares.
  • Ease of use: Single handed ‘slam lock’ system. Opening the door with a twist knob, and then just pushing it shut, means that you can concentrate on holding your dog’s collar. Single handed opening and easy closing is quicker and safer.
  • Good visibility: The vertical bars on both the back and the front of ProLine crates allow the driver particularly good visibility – and being vertical not horizontal also means that dogs can’t easily bite on them.

Dimensions and weight: The Cerberus L is 96.5cm wide x 68.6cm high x 93.5cm long; 30.5kg

The crates arrive flat packed, but minimum assembly is required, with typically only 10 bolts to screw in, and they’re satisfactorily easy to put together. Tie-down straps are included.

Accessories: The accessories that are suitable for this cage are shown in the list below.

  • Crash-Bag: Held against the back of the dog box and designed to absorb braking forces.
  • Scratch-Guard vehicle bumper protector: The concertina construction makes it very quick to fold up.
  • Easy-Steps telescoping dog access ramp: A lightweight but immensely strong telescoping dog ramp with a long lasting anti-slip surface. It only weighs 5.4kg, but will hold 100kg. Single handed opening and closing; only 71cm long when closed.
Summary: It’s no surprise that these cages are gaining such a following. Components and build quality are top notch, they look great, and they’re rattle free. Overall they’re very easy to live with - including being light enough to take out of the vehicle relatively easily. When all’s said and done, crash-tested safety has to be the major plus point.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard two to four day service is £6.50 (£11.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or two days) is £9.50 (£14.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 4pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
