SIZING: Sizing is dependent on the crate’s intended use, as well as you and your dog’s preferences. Please review the dimensions listed to choose your size. However, based on past purchases our customers tell us that breeds like the Jack Russell Terrier and the Toy Poodle may work well in the G1™ Small.
Please note that these breeds may also fit in a Medium, and therefore we suggest reviewing those dimensions before selecting the proper size.
Please use this tool as a guide, but also note that we are unable to offer a 100% guarantee of any recommendation.
Please use this tool as a guide, but also note that we are unable to offer a 100% guarantee of any size recommendation. Each dog - as well as each owner's preference - is unique.
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. Helpful hint: you can filter by breed, weight size, vehicle and more.
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.

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.
Gunner Kennels tests on cold winter days showed that the G1™ stayed anywhere from 15-45 degrees warmer inside the kennel than exterior temperatures.
Due to high demand, this product has an estimated 7-10 business day processing time-frame before shipment.
Each kennel is manufactured in the USA and hand built in Tennessee under intense scrutiny, and we want to get each one right. You'll be able to see the care we put into our products when you receive our package. It's worth the wait.
Gunner Kennels is dedicated to building the best dog crate on the market. Every G1™ crate comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty, that's how much we believe in our product.
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.

"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!!"

"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. Excellent quality and design. Most importantly, my very active Jack Russell loves it."

"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!"

"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."
