Hunts. Spent a lot of hours researching and decided to buy this crate. It's worth every penny and hopefully my last crate. My yellow lab fits just fine and my next dog will be a smaller Pudelpointer. The quality of the crate is amazing! Keep in mind that this crate when tied down will save your pets life in an accident.

Owns 2 dogs. Family pet. Competes. Super fast shipping and great service! My golden is on the smaller side at only 55lbs and now that I have one intermediate and one large I'm thinking I maybe should have gotten two larges. The footprint of the large with the height of the intermediate would be perfect. We'll keep the intermediate and he'll just have to curl up nice and tight for truck rides, but I definitely wouldn't have him stay in there for extended periods of time at the house.

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. After watching videos about the durability and safety of this kennel I knew we had to have it. Our fur babies mean the world to us, and now I don't have to worry about their safety when traveling. And the amount of time it took from ordering to door step was 4 days. Awesome!!

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. The Gunner Kennel is well made and exactly what I was looking for. With some maneuvering, it fits behind the front seat of my Chevy crew cab pickup for long trips and is secure in the back when we hunt. I couldn't be happier with the quality.

It's a great kennel, but it was WAY too small for my dog. He weighs about 60 pounds, and there is no way he could fit inside the kennel. Great kennel, but too small to fit a dog over 40-50 pounds.

Hunts. Family pet. Fits on the back seat on my GMC 2500 with disasembling it. If your going to place it on the floor of the cab with the backseat flipped up you'll have to disassemble it and put it together. Solid construction Made very well. Door secures and locks well.

By: Lisa Frankland From NM
Competes. Great product. Relatively easy to assemble and very sturdy/safe. Quick and easy to secure inside my minivan with ratcheting tie-downs. My dog loves the optional non-skid floor liner, and the crate design strikes a good balance between ventilation and insulation. The only negative I have noticed so far is the door rattles annoyingly when the vehicle is moving. I plan to stick some small pieces of foam in the doorframe to prevent this.

By: Brian Toia From NJ
Hunts. Family pet. I was extremely impressed with how well constructed the kennel is. I have done a lot of research into which transport kennel to get for my new dog. I wanted the strength of an Owens metal kennel but not the weight and size, then all the plastic ones were very cheap and didn't look like they would last. The gunner dog kennel is the perfect combination. 500 bucks seems like a lot, but you will feel comfortable with your purchase the second you put your dog in it for the first time.

The kennel is great, my only suggestion would be for the company to add a rubber seal where the door meets the kennel to keep the door from rattling. I added some weather stripping and it worked.

Lab. Hunts. Competes. Run my dog in UKC and AKC hunt test. Purchased the Gunner G1 to keep from putting the full size dog box in the bed of my truck. I let the rear seats in my dodge ram lay down and slid the Gunner Kennel inside. Perfect fit, safer for my dog, 70 lb lab, and she has plenty of room. Highly recommended the Gunner G1.
Fast shipping had in two days.

Hunts. Competes. The kennel is built like a tank, but the intermediate is too small for my 65lb lab. He is very tall and all legs. If he lays down in the crate, his front legs stick out about 6 inches. Height is fine, width is fine, just too short.
All that to say, I was so impressed I am just getting the large. Unfortunately the large is expensive, but I think it will be worth it.

Hunts. I have had one problem with the kennel. The nylon on the handles where the screws go in has widened therefore the handles come off when lifting. Which is kind of important since the kennel does have some weight to it.
