SIZING: Sizing is dependent on the crate’s intended use, as well as you and your dog’s preferences. View a complete guide to our sizing recommendations here.

Based on past purchases our customers tell us that breeds like the Belgian Malinois, Labrador Retriever and German Shorthaired Pointer may work well in the G1™ Intermediate. Please note that these breeds may also fit in a Large and therefore we suggest reviewing all dimensions before selecting the proper size.
PATENTED FEATURES DESIGNED FOR SAFETY
Over-engineered for your dog, designed for travel and built for your peace of mind – the G1™ innovation set the bar for safe crates. Here's why.
Double Wall Rotomolded

Double-Wall Rotomolded

The power of the only double-wall rotomolded kennel on the market: our patented design has been tested to withstand 4,000+ lb. of force and 630 lb. dropped from 8’4". Its construction makes it the safest pet travel crate on the market, according to the CPS.

Escape-Proof, Reversible Door

No more flimsy doors that don't hold your dog, or fly open on a whim. Our nylon door is custom welded, powder coated and reinforced with an aluminum frame – powerful enough to contain even the greatest escape artist.

Heavy Duty For Safety

If it takes a little more muscle to move this crate around that’s probably a good thing for your dog's safety. CPS tested lesser, lighter-weight materials & none stood up to their rigorous crash tests. We won't compromise the G1™ integrity to shave off a few pounds of weight.

Made in America

Our crates are proudly designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA. We work with 20+ small businesses across the country to manufacture and build our kennels and accessories.

LOADING

THE GUNNER DIFFERENCE

Innovative Drainage System

A recessed floor makes sure your dog isn't sitting in water or mud on the trip home. The oversized, removable drain plug makes for easy cleaning

Wider Base

A wider base better prevents rollover, and any unwanted movement

Built-In Tie-Down Pins

Our integrated stainless-steel pins and tie-down strap combination ensures security, and the combination has been tested to not rip out of kennel on impact

Non-Slip Elevated Feet

Raises crate off the ground, limiting heat transmission or conduction from surfaces. Plus, it stabilizes the kennel and minimizes slippage

Custom Door System

Custom welded, powder-coated and reinforced aluminum frame that is the first of its kind. Our stainless-steel Piano Hinge and hexagonal door design keeps paws in and teeth off

Superstrong Carry Handles

Kayak-grade handles offer an easy front grasp and helps moving the heavy-duty crate

Paddle Latch Lock

Paddle-latch door offers easy opening & closing, and includes a key-in-the-hole lock to protect your pup during bathroom breaks

Stainless Steel Hardware

Gunner uses the highest quality materials, 100% of the time. Designed to last a lifetime

Backup & Safety Latches

These top & bottom locks on the door add extra backup, containing even the greatest escape artist

Water-Repelling Windows

Our vents were engineered to limit penetration of seasonal elements like rain, sleet and snow

SAFETY DETAILS

PROVEN TO SAVE

At the heart of our company is safety. Since our launch we've helped protect thousands of dogs on the road. Read the testimonials of how we've helped save lives too.

5 STAR CRASH TESTED

The G1™ is the first 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 BOMBPROOF"

You said it, not us. 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 and more. 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.

HOT WEATHER

Our double-wall rotomolded construction offers an extra layer of material which helps block 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

COLD WEATHER

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 Kennels tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.

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.

A BOY & HIS DOG

In college Addison Edmonds got a dog. That dog changed his life. This is a story about the bond between them, and how it became the catalyst for a family of 6... and why you'll never hear Addison say Gunner is "just a dog".

WHAM!

"I was sitting there when WHAM! This truck came out of nowhere, completely destroying my back end. I couldn’t open the trunk it was so smashed in. When I opened the door he came out of the crate with his tail wagging. If he 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 D.

WORTH IT

"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 never expect something like that to happen to you. You can’t tell me your dog’s life isn’t worth a kennel."

– Peyton B.

SOLVED ALL OF MY PROBLEMS!

"My dog had severe separation anxiety and turned into Houdini. This crate has not only prevented him from escaping, it has actually calmed his anxiety and acted more like the den he is comfortable in. Well worth every cent!"

- Andrew W.

BUILT LIKE A TANK

"What a great product built like a tank and quality throughout! Assembled easily, fit and finish is perfect, can tell a lot of pride goes into their product. Spend the money its worth it!"

- Michael P.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

"I'm tough on my dog and expect a lot of him, the same goes for the equipment. Gunner has more than exceeded my needs."

- Cody G.

WORTH EVERY PENNY!

"Purchased the G1 ™ to see about replacing my aluminum dog box. Drove 1300 miles to and from Arkansas with my dog in the back, threw the kennel in the Polaris to and from the blind, and then inside the house for my dog to sleep in. Couldn’t be happier. Will be purchasing another ASAP."

- Caleb P.

Gunner Kennels are like no other

Our first purchase was 1 Intermediate and 1 Large. Once we received them, we had to purchase an additional Intermediate simply because we had the "peace of mind" of the safety factors implemented within this product. We will no longer need to purchase any other kennel, as these are structured very very well, and will keep your pup safe. We HIGHLY recommend this product. On a side note, Brian from Gunner Kennels had the best customer service we have had in a long time. He knew we were headed out on a trip and made sure he did what he could to get us these kennels prior to leaving. Thank you Brian!!!

Worth every penny!

Wonderful - my dog loves traveling in his Gunner after a long day of hiking and swimming. It's so easy to hose out when we get home if it's dirty. He even likes to nap in it when we are home!

G1 Intermediate

I love this kennel, I got it for my GSP with the orthopedic pad. He’s comfortable in the box for long rides and he’s absolutely secure and safe. I have so much peace of mind knowing he’s safe.
