Engineered for your dog, designed for travel and built for your peace of mind, Gunner Kennels® G1™ has set a new industry standard by offering a list of exclusive features as the market’s only double-wall rotomolded dog crate. The patented design has been tested to withstand over 4,000 lb. of force, a 12-gauge shotgun at 7 steps, a 200+ foot cliff drop, and 630 lb. dropped from 8’4” – nothing else comes close.

The manufacturer is currently working on getting the Gunner Kennel approved for International flight. Currently for continental US flight, American, United and Alaska Airlines all prefer dogs being shipped in the Gunner crates as opposed to the cheaper plastic crates that are normally used. Southwest Airlines does not ship pets unless they are small enough to fit under the passenger's seat. The Gunner Kennels are made in the USA.

Bought this product?

I did a lot of research before purchasing my LG. Gunner crate. I had a high strung escape artist who has been crated in the past in wire crates, but no more. From the moment I got this she has loved it, she is content, calmer & does not mess with the front door. The latch is fantastic, the workmanship is well executed and well designed. Yes heavier than most but has wheels in the back. Has a back bottom plug for easy washing. Your buying quality and safety for your dog, I highly recommend this crate.

I have looked for crates that are big enough for my 60lbs Lab and still fit int he back of my Tacoma. The intermediate Gunner was the perfect fit. Also easy to take in and out. The crate is a little heavy but with the 2 handles I can drag it out of my truck and into the house or office with ease.

Extremely durable and well built. This crate looks like it could survive just about anything.

My only complaint on these crates is that the door rattles a bit when riding int he truck. But nothing 4 inches of weather stripping stuck on the back side of the door couldn't solve.

All in all these are the best crates I've ever seen. Thought about 4 stars because of the door rattle but because I've never used a better crate I had to give it the full 5.
