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. Before you receive our kennel, no less than a dozen American hands from small businesses across the country have helped craft this product.
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
A wider base better prevents rollover, and any unwanted movement
Built-In Tie-Down Pins
These ensure that your kennel is secure when strapped down in the vehicle. Plus you can travel with confidence knowing the crate won't be "wobbling in the wind"
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 Manufactured Door
Custom welded, powder coated and reinforced aluminum frame. Our stainless-steel Piano Hinge and hexagonal door design keeps paws in and teeth off
Superstrong Carry Handles
These kayak-grade handles offer an easy front grasp and helps moving the heavy-duty crate
Paddle Latch Lock
Ever worried about leaving your dog in the truck on a bathroom break? Our paddle-latch door includes a key-in-the-hole lock to protect your pup
Stainless Steel Hardware
No worrying about the rain, and no ugly rust stains. Designed to last a lifetime
Backup & Safety Latches
These top & bottom locks 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 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
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.
VERY WELL BUILT KENNEL
"Oh boy is it a beauty! The Gunner designers/engineers did a great job with these things! It looks like the medium size is going to be perfect for our Brittany pup as she continues to grow. Thank you you to the Gunner Customer Service department for being so responsive and helpful to all of my questions while I was trying to decide which size to go with! "

THANK GOD FOR GUNNER KENNEL
"This is my third Gunner Kennel. They are the only ones I’ll ever buy. We got hit buy a drugged driver and my dog was in a large cheap crate she did not survive. After that I looked for a stronger better dog crate. I had never heard of gunners kennels until then. Again I thank God for Gunner Kennels, it’s the most protection I can provide for my 4 legged friends."
- Randy L.
JUST BUY IT
"I had wanted a Gunner for several months, had it in the shopping cart at least 4 times and ended up backing out. Almost went with another kennel, then one day I got a call from my brother in law saying his wife got in an accident with his Lab in the back of their truck. The lab didn’t make it, I saw what it did to them and I bought my dog Hank a G1 medium that night. Well worth the money."
- Hunter A.
WORTH EVERY PENNY
"I see a lot of people say 'But they’re so expensive!!!' Tell me, how much is your dog worth to you? I have dogs that to me, are priceless. Gunner Kennels are the ONLY kennels tested for car crashes. I know my dogs will be safe in my car when traveling. I trust no one more than these kennels!"
– Sara H.
BEST EVER DOG CRATE!
"I have had dogs since 1974 and purchased MANY dog crates. I have seen the various types, styles, configurations, compositions, etc. The Gunner crate is light years ahead of any crate today. Its features and safety record are worth their weight in gold. If you have to wait for your crate. it will be worth it. This is an investment for your dog.....it could save his/her life. Don't regret not buying one."
- Sandra G.
AMAZING HIGH QUALITY KENNEL
"Above and beyond the best kennel available. We have been kennel training with a cheap metal crate that she can now open on her own. Now, there’s no way she can get out. We know she can be left at home in the kennel and be safe. No doubt in my mind this kennel will last a lifetime."
- Chad E.
I've only had the kennel a week so I cannot speak to the long term durability. The initial quality seems great. We decided to purchase the kennel because we would be taking our dog with us on a week-long trip across the country and having a safe place for her to sleep was our primary concern. I wasn't sure if we would be able to receive the kennel in time due to the high demand and poor planning on my part. I reached out to the customer service team. Brian and Virginia were amazing. They worked with me to decide the right size for our dog , put a priority on our kennel because we needed it within 4 business days, and even follow-up once we received it to verify that everything was great. You've won a customer for life! Good people make great businesses.
Very good experience. Very safe to travel.safety and practical experience
My husband and I bought the medium G1 for our standard long haired dachshund. She probably could have fit in the small, but we are glad she has the extra room as she was just about the same length as the small. We have had the kennel for one week and so far she has used it three times. She is eager to go into it when we get it into a vehicle. The therapeutic pad seems comfortable for her. We are very happy to know she is traveling safely and with more comfort than her precious kennel.
The only kennel my dogs will ever ride in again.
I think the G1 is great - seems to be super solid, high quality, and a good weight for moving easily on and off of my truck bed. The medium size is good for transporting my 50-lb cattle dog - I wouldn't say that it's "spacious", but it's good from a safety perspective as he will not be flying around in there. Initially he refused to enter the kennel, but now he knows the drill and just goes in without my assistance. Only negative for me is that for some reason I thought that the kennel's interior length would be 30", but it is only 25" - this is a bummer because i has aiming to also use it for kenneling at home but it is not large enough for my pup to lie in without having to curl up. Anyway, the kennel seems to be very safe and durable - so great for traveling on the truck.
