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.
Every aspect of this kennel is designed with the invested dog owner in mind. The thoughtfully engineered details below are what makes our crate safer and stronger than any other competitor on the market.
Made in America
Our crates are 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.
"Well worth every penny for the safety of my family member."
"Extremely well made and gives me incredible peace of mind. The ventilation windows are larger than I thought, so my dog can see me if she's laying down or sitting, which I love. We previously had a harness, however, she wasn't comfortable pulling against the seat belt tension to reposition herself. Having a kennel solves that issue!!"
- Alexa H.
OUTSTANDING KENNEL BAR NONE!
"Extremely satisfied with the kennel. Customer service is very caring and top notch! The build quality, the design and choice of materials are superior to anything else available in the market. All this backed with Lifetime Warranty and Made in America!"
- Ara G.
SURPASSED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS
"Surpassed all my expectations. Excellent quality and design. Most importantly, my very active Jack Russell loves it."
- John W.
SUCH PEACE OF MIND!
"I have a small competition dog and travel with her all the time, both for shows and for pleasure. I had always used a harness in the back seat until one day when I had to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident. Her body went flying off the seat and landed on the floor while her head remained on the seat still in the harness. Luckily, she was not hurt, but it was a strong warning to me that the harness I felt was safe was indeed risky at best. I ordered the small kennel and installed it in my SUV. My dog went right inside and loves it. Both of us are very happy!"
- Beverly M.
THANK YOU FOR SAVING OUR PUP!
"Our cardigan corgi has car anxiety. We had a doggy car harness that almost choked our pup. We then tried a dog car seat the she kept trying to jump out of! Finally we tried one of those canopies you put over the back seat of the car. That worked fine for awhile, but when our pup was about 6 months old we nearly got into a car accident with her in the backseat. Needless to say this kennel has saved our pup! She no longer gets anxiety on car rides."

Fits my female 64lb American field lab. she loves it.
Only used it once so far. But that went great. I liked that it was delivered assembled except for the carry handles. OK for the corny stuff - like the gunmetal color and the bright orange straps (easy to see through tinted windows. Real Stuff: It is much heavier than other kennels which goes to the construction quality. It was easy to install on the backseat of my 2011 Chev Aveo. I did not install it. I took it to the dealer and he installed it. I watched. I could have done it even though I am 74, 5 foot tall. But hey, Why?... And it is easy to move. First we installed it on the rear passenger side. It bothered me since it was close to the door. (I think the manager thought I'd also have a human passenger in the rear seat. Ha. too bad. So a few days later I took it back and had it moved the middle (only very, very skinny human passengers in back now). Piece of cake. It is very secure. I thought it might wobble only having the straps go around the kennel and attaching to the rear fasteners. But you can't move it. So far I am glad I spent the money. Oh, love the way the door closes and the opportunity to lock it.
These are clearly solidly built. Very sturdy, love the built in bars for the tie down straps. Great customer service too--they forgot to include the handles in one of the crates we ordered and they called me before they even arrived to let me know that--I had the handles before I had the crates!
Very happy with the kennels
I trained my Jack Russell in bed bug detection and to chase nuisance geese off of properties. We were spending a lot of time driving to homes and businesses, getting cut off in traffic constantly (the joys of city driving). He was good in the car and always sat patiently and watched, but I realized if we got in a car crash, which can't always be avoided even though I may believe I'm a good driver, not only could my dog die, I would also quite likely **** my business and end up jobless. He'd much rather be loose,and it took him about a week to stop whining while driving (he did always go in it on his own), I can rest easier knowing his chances of surviving a car crash have improved dramatically. I do wish the G1 Small came with the performance pad as he is on the tall side for his kennel and the orthopedic bed raises him up even more.
