FEATURES AND SAFETY
Engineered for your dog, designed for travel and built for your peace of mind – nothing comes close to a G1™. Let's show you 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.

Detailed Design

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.

G1™ DIFFERENCE

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

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

Water-Repelling Windows

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

SAFETY DETAILS

Saving Lives

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

CPS Certified

The G1™ is the only 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 Indestructible

Our kennel's been 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. 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™ Small is the only crate to earn 5 Stars from CPS for both crate and carrier categories.
Center For Pet Safety simulated a collision at 30 mph on a standard plastic carrier.

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".

Please note that the Gunner Kennels' lifetime manufacturer's warranty does not cover destruction caused to the crate by its inhabitant or external forces, and extends to the original purchaser only.

GOOD INVESTMENT

"Well worth every penny for the safety of my family member."

-Connie F.

AMAZING

"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."

- Alex H.

I feel a lot more

I feel a lot more confident knowing my two Chihuahuas are in a safe crate when we travel. They love it also. The crate feels and looks very well made. I'm glad I purchased this crate.

  • How would you describe your dog? Family or Companion Dog
  • What's your primary use of the kennel? Safe Travel

Kennel is working well and we feel our dog is safe.

We have a 13 pound Jack Russel mix rescue dog. We researched travel kennels for him after purchasing a different type that basically was a containment system and really didn’t provide any safety beyond that and he didn’t like being in it at all. After researching and watching the crash test video on your kennel, we decided to try it. We’ve had it a few months now and really like it. We feel our dog is very safe in it and he rides calmly and comfortably in it. We recently brought my mother’s elderly chihuahuas to live with us and just purchased another G1 small to transport them in (they are tiny and a bonded pair) so they are safe when we need to take them somewhere. We just got the second one and are going to give them a trial run in it soon. We also just purchased two of the orthopedic pads for the kennels. So, so far we are loving the products and feel our pets are much safer in the car now.

I have never been so excited about a purchase for my dog!

My mixed breed rescue dog, Kevin, is the love of my life. A year ago we were coming back from a road trip and were nearly in an accident. It motivated me to research the safest kennels. I saved up and just got my first Gunner. Kevin usually doesn’t care for being in a kennel but he loves his Gunner! I feel better knowing he is safe!

G1 Small, Worth Every Penny

I strongly believe that this kennel was worth every penny and the 14 hour round trip (Edmonton to Montana) to know that my dog is safe. I've always had a fear of getting into an accident with my dogs in the vehicle; it's not necessarily the accident itself that is scary but the aftermath. Even though both my dogs are fairly confident I would not put it past them to run if there was a serious accident and they had somehow become loose. It gives me peace of mind to know that if I was to be in an accident that their kennel door is going to remain closed and locked until it is safe to open. The customer service from Gunner Kennels was above and beyond what I expected as well. I had so many questions and being a student in Canada the discount would not apply, they entered it manually for me and refunded the discount the same day. I can't wait to order my other dogs his kennel.
