"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.
"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

- Michael P.
"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."

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

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 Kennels tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.
I was fortunate enough to get the limited addition color and love the look, fit, and stability in the bed of truck. My 6 month old lab, Nelli, absolutely loves her kennel and takes to it with ease. I have been able to travel many hours with her in the kennel, at first started with it in the cab of my truck for a solid 3 hour one way trip and I am a firm believer she felt more secure when I realized her whining and barking that happened in her last, poorly made kennel, seriously and completely disappeared in her Gunner. I am still in college with my dog for the next few years living fair distance away from home so there is no doubt this kennel will be put to use whether it is traveling back home, out to a blind on the weekend, or simply around town I will be using this kennel pretty much daily. Finally, I have never written a review before on anything but this kennel sure deserves it. Not only do I love this kennel and everything about it; I trust this kennel and I am confident Nelli is safe in sound in her Gunner every time I close the door. I am very impressed
After investing countless dollars in cheaper crates that all my buddys told me where “just as good” I finally invested in the last crate I will ever own. All you have to do is put your hands on one and you’ll know... this is the real deal. I can’t believe how well these are built. I hope to never test the safety of this crate but I can’t sleep well knowing that my dog will be safe if I ever have to. Don’t be a cheap ***, buy a Gunner ! Thanks, Bthorpe_outdoors
My girlfriend and I could not be happier with out gunner kennel purchase. Our dog Penny loves the outdoors but gets very anxious in the truck, crying and barking and trying to crawl into our laps. The kennel has provided a safer and better experience for everyone, giving her a spot to rest and relax while we drive. Quality wise this thing is top notch and clearly built to last.
Everything about this kennel says it’ll last a lifetime.
