To guarantee adequate safety, quality, durability as well as functionality, every dog safety transportation systems for vehicles should undergo inspection by independent and recognized technical service organizations or authority. Self-conducted safety and crash test do not provide certified, independent and/or impartial judgment and safety. Actually, they can be dangerous and misleading. This concern is also addressed by a leading US pet non-profit organization. They want to create a unified safety standard for harnesses and other safety products in the pet industry.

Therefore, all 4pets safety transportation systems undergo safety testing by the TÜV SÜD, the world leading technical service organizations. Founded in 1866 in Germany, the TÜV SÜD is a highly specialized testing and product certification company with particularly extensive experience in the automotive industry. They are obliged to guarantee the compliance with internationally standards and legal requirements. Consequently, the TÜV SÜD product certification marks issued base on standards set according to internationally recognized benchmarks. Therefore, TÜV tests guarantee consumer to buy a safe and sound product.

The Crashtest:

The 4pets ProLine dog-boxes have been mounted on a sledge and loaded with reference weights of up to 55kg (121.2 pounds). This setup is equivalent to a dog-box in a car trunk with a folded-down rear bench. To comply with the TÜV-SUD provisions it had been required that a dog does not break through the back panel in case of a head-on collision. The tests have been executed with a speed of 50 kmph (31 mph).The force generated during such tests are approximately equivalent to the twentyfold weight of the load in the crate. All the crates have passed these tests with excellent results. Additionally there have been test drives on a bad road (Belgian block test drives) with 25 kmph (15.5 mph) with following criteria: There must be no permanent deformations, which impair the function; cargo must still be in secured condition; no breakdown of the attachment parts; attachment parts must not loosen and doors must not open. The ProLine crates also passed these tests and all the other above listed and tested aspects with excellent results.


TÜV SÜD and 4pets are very well aware of the fact that people normally do not drive with their back seat down. A back seat in its normal upright position provides additional resistance in case of an impact. The TÜV crash-test for the ProLine has been carried out under aggravated conditions. In case of the ProLine, this was with a folded down rear bench to investigate if the included straps could hold the crate in its position and the animal does not break through the back panel during a crash. The ProLine passed all tests under these aggravated conditions. Consequently, in the normal every day situation with the extra resistance of the upright rear bench to the back panel of the ProLine, it is even safer.
