5-Star Crash Test Rating For Our Dog Crates

The G1™ was built to be the safest, the strongest, and the easiest-to-use crate on the ​market, because my dog Gunner deserves nothing but the best – and I know that many other dedicated owners feel the same. I started this company to give those consumers the option to feel confident when traveling with Man’s Best Friend.

5-Star Crash Test Rating For Our Dog Crates

Gunner Kennels is honored to announce that the G1™ Intermediate (with our 8′ Tie-Down Straps) has received the Center For Pet Safety’s very first 5 Star Crash Test Rating certificate.

Each Gunner Kennels G1™ crate boasts exclusive features that demonstrate we engineered this product with safety as the top priority, and we believe several factors contributed in earning this CPS Certified distinction – including our double-wall rotomolded construction, a lockable paddle-latch door, designated tie-down pins for anchoring, skid-resistant rubber feet, super-strong carry handles, a wider base to prevent rollover, all stainless-steel components, and more. 

CPS is leading the first scientific approach for pet product safety measures through this Pet Travel Crate Crash Test Protocol and Rating System – which outlines a consistent test methodology to ensure that crates and carriers offer protection in case of an accident. 

Watch the video below to see how our crate fared in the CPS testing:

We’ve had several real-life customers attest to the G1™ difference, after being involved in vehicle accidents and put our lifetime manufacturer’s warranty to the test. Read one of those experiences here.

In the coming year, Gunner Kennels plans to submit additional G1™ sizes to the CPS testing program, for their own official crash tested certification.

Launched in 2016, the CPS Pet Travel Crate Crash Test Protocol and Rating System outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation protocol to ensure that crates and carriers offer crash protection. The certification program is a result of the 2015 Crate Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America. Additional information about the program may be found here.
