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.
We're 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 this warranty does not cover destruction caused to the crate by its inhabitant or external forces, and extends to the original purchaser only.
"I was sitting there when WHAM! This truck came out of nowhere, completely destroying my back end. I couldn’t open the trunk it was so smashed in. When I opened the door he came out of the crate with his tail wagging. If he had been sitting in the car he would’ve gone through the windshield. There was glass everywhere in the trunk, but no glass in Clyde."
– Scott D.
"Gunner Kennels saved his life that night. Grizz walked away from the situation without any injuries, and he was riding right where the blow happened. You never expect something like that to happen to you. You can’t tell me your dog’s life isn’t worth a kennel."
– Peyton B.
"My dog had severe separation anxiety and turned into Houdini. This crate has not only prevented him from escaping, it has actually calmed his anxiety and acted more like the den he is comfortable in. Well worth every cent!"
– Andrew W.
"What a great product built like a tank and quality throughout! Assembled easily, fit and finish is perfect, can tell a lot of pride goes into their product. Spend the money its worth it!"
– Michael P.
"I'm tough on my dog and expect a lot of him, the same goes for the equipment. Gunner has more than exceeded my needs."
– Cody G.
"Purchased the G1 ™ to see about replacing my aluminum dog box. Drove 1300 miles to and from Arkansas with my dog in the back, threw the kennel in the Polaris to and from the blind, and then inside the house for my dog to sleep in. Couldn’t be happier. Will be purchasing another ASAP."
– Caleb P.
How safe is your dog in case of an accident? In a Gunner Kennels, you never have to wonder. The G1™ kennel is the only pet travel crate that has earned a 5 Star Crash Test rating, setting a new industry standard and putting our product in a category all its own.
