"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!!"

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."

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.

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

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.
I have only had my Gunner about a week and used it for the first time yesterday when taking my dog to a Scent Work class. This crate is amazing. I've never been so excited by a crate. The sense that my dog is so secure and safe is overwhelming. My dog was happy and comfortable in her crate. I showed it to my instructor who was impressed as well by the crate. The craftsmanship and attention to details is like nothing I've seen in a dog crate. It is well worth the $$.
I started to get a lot of anxiety driving with my fur baby and thinking about what would happen to her if we got into a car accident. She had seatbelt but knowing she can still get really injured with it, I knew I needed a safer solution. Imagine finding out that your dog didn’t survive the crash... what would you pay in that moment to have your best friend back? That’s what you have to think about when you make this purchase. It’s a hefty price tag but a worthwhile investment because I feel so much more at ease knowing that in the worst case scenario, she is as protected as she can be while travelling in a car. I live in Canada so with the exchange rate and shipping/duties/customs fees, it ended up being even pricier but I would purchase it again in a heartbeat.
Excellent! We have a Havanese pup that we adore and want to keep him safe. Just today, we were coming back from hiking in one of our State Parks, and I had to hit the brakes hard when another car swerved into my lane. Our dog woke up, but was safe in his Gunner kennel!
My 15 pound dog has already started trying to escape this thing and no success yet!
My dog Bentley (28lb mix) has always hated the car and tolerated being in it. After a few hard stops that upset him even more, I knew something had to change. After a recommendation from a friend, I decided on a Gunner Kennel. Bentley already enjoys a crate at home so this was a very seamless transition. It fits great in my 2020 Tiguan. Highly recommend and were very happy knowing Bentley is now safe AND happy in the car!
