discourage your dog from chewing with this chew-resistant accessory
06-27-161 min read
We hear the challenge all the time: “my dog can escape that.” Our response to that always is, “we’ll buy the kennel back from you if he can – and that includes escaping by chewing his way through.” Up until this date we haven’t had to do that. But for owners with extreme chewers, we've designed a new kennel accessory that will help give you better peace of mind.
Dogs with Anxiety
Pet Safety
Training Tips

Gunner Kennels were originally created for travel, with every inch of the kennel designed to keep your dog (and passengers) as safe as possible in the vehicle. Because we’ve “over-engineered” this dog crate, the G1™ crate has contained even the greatest escape artist. Plus the design has even been tested to withstand 4,000 lb. of force, a 12 gauge shotgun at 7 steps, a 200-foot cliff drop, and 630 lb. dropped from 8’4”.

Gunner G1 Kennel

That being said, leave a chewer in a kennel at home for a few hours and virtually any material (within reason) can be steadily worked on. Add to that a dog with separation or storm anxiety, and the feeling of fear is so overwhelming that they will try to escape a crate at all costs – including channeling that adrenaline through their jaws.

So how do I keep my dog from chewing through the crate?

Most dogs can’t make a dent on our kennel. And we haven’t had a dog escape their Gunner Kennels either, even if they have gnawed on the windows.

But we founded this company on trust, and a mission to build the best products on the market to keep your pets safe. Because of that our engineers created this exclusive G1™ bite kit to safeguard extreme chewers: waterjet-cut, stainless steel covers that are installed over the windows to keep teeth off of the vents and help protect your warranty guarantee. Designed in line with our hexagonal grid doors, this add-on accessory is highly recommended to owners who know their dogs use their teeth – and we think it will be the answer to prayers for many. Take a better look at them here.

If you are struggling with your dog’s nervous habits, read our crate anxietystorm anxiety and separation anxiety help topics on our blog.

We also feel compelled to mention here that many times, dogs who have been able to chew through our window vents are pets left in their crates for extended periods of time. We do not believe that is good for your dog, and recommend you consider alternative solutions if you have to leave your pet in a crate daily for several hours during the day. As we detail here, a kennel should be a sanctuary and not a prison for your best friend.

It’s like an insurance plan….

This is by far the best kennel made. I use mine daily and they take lots of abuse. They never even seem to wear at all. Hose them off with soap and water and they look brand new. I encourage all of my puppy buyers to get them as well. It’s like an insurance plan for your best friend!

Wow, Just Wow

Wow, this kennel is the Yeti of dog kennels! everything about this kennel is first rate. Yes, there are cheaper, but none can compare to a Gunner kennel.

Amazing travel kennel

This thing is built like a tank. I have no doubt this will protect our little guy if we are ever involved in an accident. We recently completed an 800 mile road trip with him in the crate. It was well worth the money. This was the first time he was calm in the car and not whining. He slept easily during the drive. We felt calm know he was secure and comfortable. Cannot recommend this crate enough!!

Unlike any other crate I have seen

I purchased two Gunner kennels, a medium and a small, for my pups. Immediately, you understand this is a different level of product compared to what you’ve used before. The construction is fantastic and legitimately heavy duty. I feel so much better knowing I’ve done everything I can to keep my dogs safe in case of a worst case scenario.

Best purchase for my best friends

I’ve been buying cheap kennels for the four years I’ve owned my dogs, none of them seemed to hold up. I’ve wanted a Gunner for a year now, and the more I read stories of how they have saved dogs lives, it made me think of how losing my best friends would damn near **** me. So I made the purchase and will never look back. It is one solid kennel and I will not let the kennel hold me back from traveling farther to hunt anymore. It’s well worth the investment. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for, and this will not let anyone down.
