WORTH SAVING UP FOR IT
Khaleesi is my service dog and adventure buddy so we put in a lot of miles on the road. I always worry about getting hit from behind and Khaleesi getting hurt. Now I don't have to worry! We also do NADAC agility and barn hunting so I'm happy to have a kennel that can be locked for when I'm not around her and won't have to worry about anyone letting her out.
I ordered 2 of the Intermediates because, after a ton of research, I felt that the GUNNER would be the safest kennel for transporting my dogs. They arrived on schedule and the assembly was relatively easy. My dogs are very comfortable in these kennels. I have Bearded Collies. We compete in herding, agility and obedience. These kennels are easy to keep clean which is a big plus in the rainy Pacific NW. I would definitely buy again.
AKC SHOW TRAVEL
Our Boston Terrier is just beginning his AKC Show career and we want to keep him safe as he travels with us. We chose the small kennel and he fits nicely inside. The G1 fits well on the back seat of our Audi Q5. The quality construction of the GUNNER kennel gives us peace of mind when traveling with our handsome little guy! We also appreciate that it's made in the USA!

I ordered 1 and was so happy I ordered a 2nd immediately after the first. My dogs travel a lot to Agility & Nose Work Trials. We crate out of the car, weather permitting. I had been eyeing the Variocage MIM for small dogs, but it is much more expensive and too heavy for me to get it in and out of my SUV by myself. These G1 crates I can move myself. They should outlast me, I'm very pleased!
STURDY, SAFE, WELL MADE
Sturdy, safe, well made. Much safer way to transport my show and performance dogs.
GUNNER kennels are engineered for your dog, designed for travel and built for peace of mind. The innovation of the G1™ has set the bar for safe dog crates. Here's why.
The market's only double-wall rotomolded crate better guards your dog from both human error and outside forces. Tough enough to protect against the unexpected.
The second layer separation reduces the amount of UV light that can reach inside of the kennel. Plus the interior surface stays smooth, without potential protrusions from inserts to potentially harm your dog. Learn more.
Escape-Proof, Reversible Door
Even Houdini couldn't escape this crate. The GUNNER door system is built specifically to contain a dog before, during and after a wreck. The powerful proprietary nylon of the G1™ door is custom welded, powder coated and reinforced with an aluminum frame. We went back to the drawing board several times to get this just right.
Heavy Duty For Safety
If it takes a little more muscle to move the GUNNER it's because of its double-walled construction, which offers at least 2x the impact protection than a single-wall. The exterior layer absorbs the majority of an initial impact, with the interior wall adding another layer of protection for your dog. We won't compromise the GUNNER integrity to shave off 5 pounds of weight. Learn more.
Made in America
Our crates are proudly designed, manufactured and assembled in the United States of America. No bs here.
It takes more than 120 parts to make the GUNNER kennel, and we work with 20+ small businesses across this country to create our kennels and accessories.
Innovative Drainage System
An oversized, removable drain plug makes for easy cleaning. The recessed floor makes sure your dog isn't sitting in water or mud on the trip home
A wider base better prevents rollover, and any unwanted movement

GUNNER's integrated stainless-steel pins & tie-down strap combination ensures anchoring to the vehicle. The combination has been tested to not rip from kennel on impact
Non-Slip Elevated Feet
Raises crate off the ground, limiting heat transmission or conduction from surfaces. Stabilizes kennel and reduces any slippage
Custom Door System

These top & bottom locks are an added on the door add extra backup, containing even the greatest escape artist
Our vents were engineered to limit penetration of seasonal elements like rain, sleet and snow
Our double-wall rotomolded construction offers an extra layer of material which helps limit UV rays, as well as humidity.
Rubber feet raise the G1™ off the ground, limiting heat transmission from hot surfaces like truck beds & pavement.
Purchasing our pad accessories add an additional layer of protection, helping bring temps down inside the crate.
The G1™ has ample airflow with 10 windows on its sides, a vented door and three rear windows. The G1™ Fan Kit gets even more air circulation through there.
We conducted temperature tests using our kennel & others on the market. There was a nearly 50 degree difference between one popular crate and ours. See results here
The second layer of construction on our G1™ adds extra protection against outside chill and cold winds.
Rubber feet raise the G1™, limiting heat transmission out of kennel & allowing the dog to retain warmth.
In the same way, our pad accessories limits heat conduction from the frozen ground, keeping the dog cozy in there.
Engineers specifically designed the window vents to repel elements like water, sleet & snow. Plus our All-Weather Kit provides additional protection.
GUNNER tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.
