It’s been an ongoing debate for years: What is the best dog box for your truck? Is it an aluminum dog crate or a traditional crate? It used to be that the large, bulky aluminum dog crate was the safest way to transport your dog. But that’s no longer the case. GUNNER has produced a kennel that is safer and more fitting to most lifestyles. Here are four reasons why a GUNNER kennel is the best truck kennel for your hunting dog.
Flexibility is a major benefit of a GUNNER kennel, especially if you’re mainly using it as a hunting dog crate.
Our G1™ kennel is designed for travel. Its portability lets you take it anywhere and move it between home and truck easily. Don’t worry if you have to take a buddy’s truck out for a hunting trip or if you’re staying at a lodge for the weekend–your GUNNER kennel can come with you.
Debating if an aluminum dog crate is right for you and your pup? Think twice before going in that direction. Even our largest G1™ kennel is less bulky than the standard aluminum dog crate that usually takes up most of the space in your truck bed.
With the G1™ dog crate, you have the advantage of being able to move your kennel from vehicle to vehicle. And you can do all this without disturbing your dog’s sanctuary and safe space.
“Exceptional value and made rock solid. I sold all my aluminum kennels and now use only GUNNER Kennels.” – George P., trainer
First and foremost, the best dog box for your truck must be safe. At GUNNER, safety is our number one priority. Our dog crate has been tested & proven to save real dogs in real accidents. Check and see if the other product you are checking out can say the same.
Here's something to think about: an estimated 100,000 dogs are killed each year from riding in truck beds alone–not to mention dogs who die from general car accidents. Plus, there are about 18,000 wrecks per day in the US, according to the NHSTA. These statistics is shocking and an important reason why we’ve made safety our primary goal here at GUNNER.
The G1™ kennel is the original 5 Star Crash Tested dog kennel on the market. It was awarded this certification through rigorous testing standards set by the Center For Pet Safety and set the standard. In 2015, the organization tested its first round of products using this protocol. 85% of all the products tested failed; every other dog crate but GUNNER Kennels failed. Like we said: safety matters to us.
Now, we have to say that CPS hasn’t yet tested traditional stationary aluminum dog boxes. In fact, we can’t really find well-documented testing for them – but they have put other plastic and aluminum crate options on trial.
Plus, we’ve conducted our own tests. We’ve thrown the G1™ off a 200-foot cliff, shot it with a 12-gauge shotgun at 7 steps, dropped a 630 lb. sled on it from 8 feet high, and applied consistent pressure all the way up to 4,000 pounds (at which point the G1™ broke the machine…. We don’t actually know how much it can withstand). Even the best aluminum dog crate can’t withstand that much force.
To say that your choice of a kennel isn’t important is to put your dog’s life on the line. Even the most careful hunters (and drivers) know that accidents happen. So when they do, make sure your pup is in the safest dog box he can get, which is a GUNNER kennel–it can actually save his life.
Engineered for your dog, designed for travel, and built for your peace of mind, nothing comes close to a G1™ kennel. Here are a few of the features that make a Gunner kennel the best dog box for your truck:
Many dog owners are concerned about the price and value of their desired kennel. It often seems like the options are to pay an arm and a leg for the best aluminum dog box or go with a cheaper plastic crate option that isn’t trustworthy.
Not only is a Gunner kennel cheaper than a custom aluminum box–it’s designed to last forever. Gunner guarantees a lifetime warranty, provides better safety for your dog, and offers more versatility for your lifestyle.
You can rest assured that a Gunner kennel is the best dog box for your truck and home to keep your dog safe and comfortable wherever you go. After all, man’s best friend deserves man’s best kennel.
