"Beware of Dog" signs won't keep your guests safe with this manic monster! These crazed dogs will stand guard over your lair as they snarl and open their jaws wide to show frighteningly sharp teeth. A startling glow erupts from their throats and beams from the reds of their eyes as their growls intensify and their bodies shake manically. This is a front-view product, which makes it perfect for displaying inside a dog house, cave or any mysteriously dark enclosure-- the options are endless!

Great decor, but the connector to the fog machine died first use, can't find a replacement.

BEST PROP OF THE YEAR
from Spokane, WA
About Me Budget Shopper
I've been going to Spirit Halloween for the past 8 years and every year gets better and better. Cerberus is easily the best prop of this year. It's a very unique and interesting animatronic that, along with a fog machine, looks absolutely terrifying. So worth the money
My favorite Halloween purchase to date!
ThThanks y was a great hit at our party and on Halloween! Worked great, sensitive sensors and very effective at scaring people!!
Great animatronics - and awesome with connected fog
Bought this online and had it shipped to me (ones in the store had the plastic "shroud" piece damaged). Arrived quickly and used it with a new fog machine that I also bought. Worked very well. Sensors even worked well in low light (my haunted garage is pretty dark). Works best in a corner or somewhere where something is behind it (I had my back corner curtain). Above it I had spider webs and a big spider (also bought). Kids loved the new addition to the haunted garage.

We get so many compliments!!
Love this item.. Was a great addition to out display. Would like it to have been a bit more sturdy, just has to be careful when moving it around.
You gotta have it!
It was the favorite amongst all the kids! Even the one's it scared. Worked great! We made an old run down looking doghouse for it that was perfect. If I had room in my yard I would buy 5 more!

Cerberus is amazing!!!
Cerberus looks great in our graveyard! He looks even better in real life than he does online and we couldn't be happier! Spirit Halloween always has great deals and amazing props! I look forward to the Halloween season each year for Spirit Halloween!!
World good before it got dark after that we had to have a light flash on it to work I'm going to get step pad for night time other wise it was great
awesome - easy to put together real accent to our haunted house!!!
A different effect and people loved them
from vancouver canada
So this was my second yr with my 3 headed dogs. They are good and different but hard to store and no aux output for the speaker. I liked them as it was different. I prefer to use the step pad instead of the motion sensor. It does cost a bit more but it does work well. I put mine in some shrubs as there is no backend to the animals. its creepy to c the dogs coming out of the bushes and the sound effects was good and all 3 heads move at the same time with lights and fog coming out of their mouth. I would recommend it.
cerberus a big hit
I put this cerberus in my haunted hall and was a big hit. only thing i noticed is the motion sensor needs more light than i had in the hall so i added extra spot lighting. The glowing eyes and the fog feature were top dog.lol
By April Woodruff
For the money that this cost I should not have had to make any changes. But I did!! Would not recommend anyone to buy this
Guest Services Response:Thank you for your feedback, We have a doctor zombie that is here to assist with nay troubles you have with any animatronic.
My 7 year old loves it. Really cool with the foger hooked up.
I would definitely buy this again.
Cerberus is awesome. And I haven't even hooked the fog machine to it yet. Can't wait for Halloween to unleash him!
Love what Spirit Halloween offers.
Saw this last year and was glad you still had it. Had to get.Thank you.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
from pikeville ky
this is one of the best props i have ever bought from spirit and i have bought plenty!! i wish all the stuff they made was this durable and worked this well!
I would recommend this to family and friends.
I bought this item to use in my haunted backyard on Halloween. Set up was very quick and easy. It functions just like on the website. I can't wait to see the reactions of my neighbors on Halloween!
Amazing and was a really good edition to my haunted house
from Penetanguishene Ontario
This Animitronic is so awesome it looks and sounds way better in person and our neighbours loved it when they walked through our haunted house. one problem i had is that when i was assembling it the screw holes were drilled in different places forcing me to drill my own but hopefully that was only with the one i had and it doesnt happen again
Great addition to our decor
About Me Midrange Shopper
I bought this animatronic a few years ago when it first came out. It is has an awesome look and works great with our other decorations. The only thing I do not like is that it is a front view decoration. We had to build a small dog house for it to hide the fogger and to cover up the back of it as it is only three heads and some cloth to make up the back and cover up the wood frame. However, it was a small price to pay for such a cool looking decoration!
Good prop to scare people with! :)

We built a box for it to look like it's coming out of and put bloody hand prints all over it with fake limbs in front of it, then added a red light to shine on it , they looked deathly and bloody. Love it would definitely buy another one.
I strongly recommend this item!
This was a big hit for my display...when connected to the fog machine it was fanstsstic
The very best prop of 2015!

About Me Adventurous
He is SO creepy! So far I have had no trouble with mine. Two of his heads smash into each other, but it doesn't hurt anything. I would highly recommend buying him to anyone who's considering.
Quality addition to haunted house/ Halloween party!
Pro: wonderfully realistic, realitivly easy to assemble, light weight so can picked up and moved around Cons:motion detector to activate the really cool effects only work if a a light is shining on the sensor, defeats the purpose of hiding the prop in a dark area and have it suddenly turn on in all it's growling ,eye flashing glory for desired jump scares. Over came disappointing aspect by shining a flashlight at sensor from ground level( still looks AWSOME) but victim had to stand directly in front to block light sensor in order to activate. Would rather have a pressure plate that can be placed anywhere near prop that would turn effects on when someone hsteps on it. Really want to hide "him...s?" In the dark!
This prop is great! This is the second year we used it and still working perfectly. It was easy to put together and worked well (you do need to be gentle with the screws, but so far so good). I worked well with my Fog machine. I used a step pad for this, since it was so much noise and people walking around, I didn't want it going off constantly with the fog. It was a great prop for my haunted house. One of the best Halloween props I've ever purchased.
Awesome! This was a hit!

About Me Adventurous, Classic
This prop is AWESOME! It was easy to put together and worked great out of the box. I also bought a 1000W Fog machine and the step pad for this. I set it up twice. First, I set it up in an unfinished basement closet for our family Halloween party using the step pad. The fog machine was too much for this set up (it took 3 hours for the smoke to clear out from just test-animating it once a few days before the party), so I unhooked the fog machine. It was still awesome in the setup I had. My adult kids & my grandkids loved it! Then, for Halloween, I set it up with the fog machine, but without the step pad. I used 2 Fire & Ice red swirling lights (one on each side) and put it behind a very short fence just inside my garage door. The motion sensor didn't work very well until I accidentally figured out that I could trigger it with my flashlight from 10-15 feet away. I stood beside it for 3 1/2 hours and it was the hit of the neighborhood with kids and parents. Some of the kids were so enamoured with my "puppies" that they almost forgot to collect any of the candy I was handing out before their parents dragged them away. By far the best Halloween prop I've ever purchased.
I love this big puppy!

I love this bad boy I haven't hooked him to the fog machine yet we bought him right after Halloween. But he's so awesome we decided to keep him up to scare our friends and family !

Very poorly made for price
from Youngstown, Ohio
Was very disappointed in the quality and design. Screws stripped, parts were glued on,didn't even last thru one Halloween party. I have bought many pieces in the 20 years we have been doing parties, this is by far the worst purchase we have made. Spirit can do better!
