CRASH TESTIMONIALS


Since our launch in 2015, we’ve helped protect thousands of dogs on the road with our G1™ series, earning the first 5 Star Crash Test Rating for a pet travel crate from the Center for Pet Safety.

But don’t just take our word for it – see below from customers how we’ve helped save K9 lives too.

"Gunner Kennels saved his life that night. Grizz walked away from the situation without any injuries, and he was riding right where the blow happened. You can’t tell me your dog’s life isn’t worth a kennel."

- PEYTON BULLARD

"The truck came out of nowhere, completely destroying my back end of my Yukon. If Clyde had been sitting in the car he would’ve gone through the windshield. There was glass everywhere in the trunk, but no glass in Clyde."

– SCOTT DEATON

"No doubt in my mind that if Coy had been in another plastic kennel it would've been bad – and the scary thing is, I had him in one of those cheaper ones recently. Y'all helped save my pup's life."

– WILL DUNNAM

"Thankfully he was good to go for the rest of duck season. I am forever in y’all’s debt. Gunner Kennels really saved my dog’s life. He wouldn’t be here today if weren’t for y’all."

– JAMES THOMPSON

"Hook went for a ride. It launched the crate pretty far and then rolled. The kennel landed at least twice as far as the photo shows. The Gunner door stayed locked the whole time too. Hook owes his life to it."

– CHARLIE BARBERINI

"I found Kase in his kennel 15 yards down the road from where my truck had flipped. I'm very thankful to Gunner Kennels for keeping him safe and alive."

– KODY VAN PELT

"If I had gone with a lesser quality kennel, it would’ve been completely smashed back there. I really want to give a testament to what your kennel did for me. I want to thank y’all very much for that."

– JOSH MOORE

"I don’t want to think about what would’ve happened if it hadn’t been a Gunner. Your kennel saved my dog's life."

– SPENCER HARRIS

"The kennel took the direct hit. The K9 officer asked what type of kennel I was using. I said: ‘It's a Gunner, I won’t trust anything else with my K9 partner."

– KHARA SCHUETZNER

"If Diesel had been loose in the car – or is another crate back there in the bed – I don't believe he would still be with us. I would never want Diesel traveling in any other dog box, and no dog of mine will ever ride in anything else."

– ZACKARY RAKISITS

"The Small is the first, and only, product to be award a dual certification in both the crate and carrier categories. Test dog size: 30 lb."

– Center for Pet Safety

"The Gunner Kennel G1 Medium (with Gunner Kennels strength-rated 8´ tie-down straps) is awarded a 5 Star Crash Test Rating from Center in the Pet Crate category. Test dog size: 45 lb."

– Center for Pet Safety

"When I walked back there and found Bear alive, I wanted to call you right away because I was almost in tears. He was in a head-on collision going 55 mph & now I’m out here tonight throwing bumpers to him."

Chris Killion

CRASH TEST VIDEOS
The G1™ Intermediate is the first - and only - 5 Star Crash Test Rated pet travel crate, according to the Center for Pet Safety certification program.
The G1™ Medium also earned a 5 Star Crash Test Rating for dogs up to 45 lb., according to the Center for Pet Safety certification program.
Gunner Kennels G1™ Small is the first - and only - product to earn dual 5 Star Crash Test Rating in both crate and carrier classes, according to the Center for Pet Safety certification program.
The G1™ actually broke the vice machine so we know it can withstand even more pressure than 4,000 lb.
Increasing consistent pressure from 0–4,000 lb, administered by a third-party on a single-wall rotomolded kennel.

CRASH TESTED STRAPS
Crash testing was a crititcal part of our R&D and impacted the kennel's final design, as you know. This included our strap system: In that testing, we were also making sure our Tie Down Strap Kit passed muster.

CPS Certified

The G1™ is the only pet travel crate to earn a 5 Star Crash Test Rating from the Center for Pet Safety. See what that means and why that matters.

Virtually Indestructible

Our kennel's been tested to withstand a 630 lb. sled dropped from over 8 feet, a 200-foot cliff drop, 4,000 lb. of force and a 12-gauge shot gun. Watch the results.

Protects In All Weather

Due to its double-wall rotomolded construction and patented details, the G1™ has properties that work for your dog in all types of weather.

5 STARS

The G1™ is the only pet travel crate that has earned a 5 Star Crash Test rating from Center for Pet Safety.

100,000 DOGS

are killed each year falling from pickup trucks, and more are injured, according to a study by Ford & AHA.

4,000 LBS.

We couldn't apply any more force, because the G1™ actually broke the vice machine. We don't really know how much our product can withstand, but it's a lot.

85 PERCENT

of products FAILED the safety certification when crash tested (2015) by CPS. The Gunner design passed. In a vehicle accident, this could be a matter of life or death.

2,700 LBS.

In a vehicle accident at 35 mph, an unrestrained 60 lb. dog can become 2,700 lb. of projectile, according to Bark Buckle UP advocacy group. Think about the implications of that for your dog, as well as other passengers.

12 GAUGE

We applied crazy stress tests to see how much the G1™ could take. We tossed it off a 200-foot cliff, and shot the kennel with a 12-gauge shotgun – not one bullet penetrated. The Gunner was built for your peace of mind.

TUCK SURVIVES A TRUCK ROLLOVER
Late one afternoon Spencer and Candace loaded up their 1-year-old yellow lab, Tuck, and their 4-year-old Yorkipoo, Si, in their friend’s Toyota Tundra to head back home. They were first going to drop off the truck and his Polaris Ranger, and were traveling about 60 MPH on a four-lane highway towards Northport when disaster struck.
