Gunner Kennels earns Top Honors from Center for Pet Safety

The Center for Pet Safety, the 501(c)(3) research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to consumer and companion animal safety, today awarded Gunner Kennels G1™ Medium (with Strength-Rated Anchor Straps) a 5 Star Crash Test Rating for their pet travel crate for dogs up to 45 lbs.

Gunner Kennel Medium Certification Test – 45# Test Dog from Center for Pet Safety on Vimeo.

In September 2016 Center for Pet Safety (CPS) published its Crash Test Protocol and Rating Guideline to grade crash protection of pet travel crates. CPS is leading the first scientific approach to pet product safety and the Pet Travel Crate Crash Test Protocol and Rating System provide essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2015 Crate Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet travel crates offer crash protection.

“Gunner Kennel’s G1™ Medium with Strength-Rated Anchor Straps follows the earlier success of their Intermediate and Small sizes,” stated Lindsey Wolko, Center for Pet Safety founder. “Based on the impressive test results, there is a strong focus by this brand on the structural integrity of their crates. Gunner Kennels continues their reign as the top performing crate we have examined to date, receiving yet another 5 Star Crash Test Rating, this time for their Medium kennel.”

Center for Pet Safety encourages manufacturers interested in participating in this rigorous testing and performance program to contact Info@CenterForPetSafety.org or call 800.324.3659.

GUNNER strap sets are the only ones that we recommend, and have met each of the brand’s crash test standards. They are the straps that the Center For Pet Safety recommends using when anchoring your crate to your vehicle for 5 Star Crash Test certified safety.

Our new & improved tie-downs are made with an extra-thick custom cam buckle for additional break strength and a synthetic material that ensures you can leave these out 24/7: better guarding against fading and stretching, and perfect for high abrasion environments.
