While working out of the country my 80lb. Belgian Malinois had become crazy with me being gone. He was terrorizing my poor wife by escaping kennels and destroying our garage while she was at work. He shredded a normal plastic kennel, torqued a wire kennel, torqued a second brand new wire kennel with industrial strength zip ties added to weak points. After a 7' tall outdoor kennel only held him for 45 seconds before he jumped clean out of it.... I was out of options. I purchased the G1 Large kennel and had it in about a week.
He has yet to escape it or try and damage it. Build quality is better than expected, it is uber heavy ( good because he can't tip it over ). I made a follow up order for the chew guards and a performance pad solely because of the quality of the kennel and their willingness to help out a first time customer.
This is the best dog purchase I have made to date. My dog chewed through 3 crates before I found the GUNNER kennel.
I'm not sure if its the design or the plastic, but he has yet to find a way out and is totally relaxed and calm in the crate. I did notice a few bites marks after his first time in the crate, but he must have met his match, but he has yet to chew it again. I was desperate when I bought this and have been extremely happy with this purchase.
I would recommend this crate to anyone- especially someone with a destructive dog!
COULD NOT BE ANYMORE PLEASED!
This kennel has been absolutely amazing. My GSD had previously broken/escaped four different kennels. On the last one, I even put some caribiners on weak parts of the crate, and the clever girl still figured a way out of that crate. She's only 10 months old and can be destructive when left to her own devices, so that's why I kennel her when I'm away from home. The G1 kennel has been fantastic. I got the metal chewkit on the door, just to be safe. She loves the kennel. Goes right in with no problem, doesn't fuss, etc. So far she has not figured out how to escape this one(fingers crossed that she never will).
10/10 recommend this kennel. Thank you GUNNER for saving our pup!

G1 FOR GUNNER
Gunner is my 1 1/2 old Belgian Malinois. He is being trained as my service dog. His separation anxiety is the worst I’ve seen from any dog. He is very destructive when he’s away from the family or my 8 year old German Shepherd Dog. Wire and other plastic crates can’t contain him when he is anxious and he doesn’t care if he hurts himself escaping. The G1 crate contains him and he’s finally getting used to staying in the crate and overcoming his phobia.
ESCAPE ARTIST MEETS HER MATCH!
In two months she’s 'broken' out of two crates. Since getting the G1 ™ she goes inside just to rest on her own. Glad to know when we go on trips she will be safe and unable to undo the door mid ride.

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
Built-In Tie-Down Pins
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
Custom welded, powder-coated and reinforced aluminum frame. Addison's door system is the first of its kind. Stainless-steel Piano Hinge and hexagonal door design keeps paws in and teeth off
Superstrong Carry Handles
Kayak-grade handles for an easy front grasp that helps moving the heavy-duty crate
Paddle Latch Lock

Backup & Safety Latches
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.
