We believe we've built the most durable kennel on the market. Though our crates were created specifically for travel, we've had many customers find their solution in Gunner Kennels for their extreme chewers or pets with phobias/anxiety (just check out some of our reviews or read our blog).
Because of that our engineers created our Chew Kit: waterjet-cut, stainless steel covers to keep teeth off of the vents and discourage chewing. We always recommend purchasing this accessory if your dog has anxiety or an extremely high drive. Note: that our manufacturer's lifetime warranty does not cover destruction done to the product by the pet. Please review our warranty here.
Please use this tool as a guide, but also note that we are unable to offer a 100% guarantee of any recommendation.

We have asked our G1™ owners - who have some of the world's best canines - to submit their dogs' photos and stats, so that we could index them for you. Whether you have a question about your dog's sizing or your specific setup, our Pack has some visual guidelines for you.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our double-wall rotomolded construction offers an extra layer of material 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.
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.

"In two months she’s 'broken' out of two crates. Since getting the G1 ™ she goes inside just to rest on her own. Glad to know when we go on trips she will be safe and unable to undo the door mid ride."
