Good question. We have a product finder quiz that recommends a size based on your answers. Please always check the above dimensions, and also consider the following when evaluating options:
Please note that we are unable to recommend sizing beyond the above guidelines. We suggest asking your vet, trainer or breeder about their recommendations for a pet travel crate, if you still have questions.
*To review detailed exterior and interior measurements of each kennel: go to the appropriate kennel page, and navigate below the photos to the sub menu. Choose "Dimensions," where you will also find photos of dogs in the kennel.
However, some retailers that previously carried Gunner Kennels products may be selling existing stock. If you have any questions about authenticity, please contact our customer service team here.
Yes, and that's a really important question, so thanks for asking. Review the specifics here.
Our G1™ does meet most airline requirements, provided that you follow certain guidelines that pertain to consumer requirements (i.e. "live pet" label, accessible water and food containers, weight limit and size compliant, etc.) that are the responsibility of the pet owner. We always recommend confirming with whatever your airline you are traveling with, regardless, as each has its own set of specifications. We can say that we have had plenty of customers who have successfully transported their dogs through airlines using Gunner Kennels!
The crates allow for ample airflow and proper ventilation was a major consideration for both designs.
The G1™ features 10 windows on its sides, a vented door and three rear windows. In addition, please see below for how our kennels were designed to protect against all seasonal elements, including heat:
Please note that we never recommend leaving your dog in the kennel for extended periods of time in the heat.
The double-wall construction works for your dog in the cold better than any other crate available. We do offer a all-weather kit, but the G1™ was specifically designed to protect against the all seasonal elements:
Please note that we never recommend leaving your dog in the kennel for extended periods of time in the cold.
We believe we've built the most durable kennel on the market. However, our manufacturer's lifetime warranty (review it here) does not cover destruction done to the product by the pet. If your pet chews or destroys the crate, your warranty is not covered and we cannot issue neither full nor partial refunds.
Our crates were created specifically for travel, but we have had many customers who turn to Gunner Kennels for their extreme chewers or pets with phobias/anxiety. Because of that, our engineers created our Chew Kit: waterjet-cut, stainless steel covers for the kennel windows to keep teeth off of the vents and discourage chewing. Please consider purchasing this accessory if your dog is a "chewer" with extremely high drive.
We are working on perfecting additional sizes now. If you'd like to be added to our waitlist let us know here.
The G1™ Small Kennel weighs around 28 pounds. The G1™ Medium weighs around 39 pounds. The G1™ Intermediate Kennel weighs approximately 55 pounds. The G1™ Large is around 75 pounds. All come standard with kayak-grade handles for easy lifting, and the G1™ Large includes wheels for easy transport.
How do I travel with my Gunner Kennel in a vehicle?
Gunner Kennels recommends securing your kennel 100% of the time, by strapping it down with our 8' tie-down straps to the strongest anchor points in your vehicle. Our cam buckle and nylon webbing combo have met our crash test standards, and the strap set is the only one we recommend. In fact, these are the very same straps that were used in the testing protocol that earned our G1™ a 5 Star Crash Test Rating, via Center For Pet Safety certification program.
Absolutely. We have created a Security Lock Kit with a high-strength, stainless steel lock bracket designed to install in 6 different positions on the kennel. The kit comes with a stainless steel security bolt and key to install. All you’ll need is a lock and chain.
Simple. With our large removable drain plug, go to any car wash with a pressure washer, open the drain plug and spray it out. Don't worry, it can handle it (make sure your dog is out of the kennel, of course).
Yes, you can stack our crates by removing the carry handle(s) of the bottom G1™. Please note that because of their durability, they were not created to be broken down easily.
At this time, we do not have dual doors. However, our G1™ door is able to be installed to open from the left as well as the right, so that you can assimilate a dual crate. We also offer a connection kit accessory, to secure the two together.
Gunner Kennels has a 30-day return/exchange policy on unused products. We also offer free return shipping when requests are initiated within 7 days of delivery. Please review details here.
You can review our shipping timelines and estimated delivery times (with a map!) here.
