Founder Addison Edmonds created the Gunner kennel specifically for transportation, and that factors into our own fit recommendations: when choosing a size, please consider if you will use the G1™ primarily for kenneling at home, or for securing the K9's safety while traveling.
Check out our Sizing Guide to help you find the best size for your dog.
If using the crate for traveling we always recommend a snug fit. This protects the dog in the case of an accident or if you’re hitting the brakes too hard: the less wasted interior space the better. It's a bit of a mind-shift in what you'd normally consider when selecting a kennel, but we believe this is for the safety of the dog. Many of our customers have found that their dog feels more secure when traveling in a tighter area, too.
Those who are using their crate primarily for home kenneling will obviously want to opt for a larger size if the dog is spending longer, more consistent periods of time in there. Watch Addison and Gunner walk you through these parameters in a video here .
