The idea for Gunner Kennels was conceived in a duck blind and inspired by my own best friend, Gunner. Like all dogs he has one mission in life, and that's to please his owner. I’ve always felt uneasy traveling with him in traditional plastic crates – and was tired of replacing flimsy ones year after year. Watching Gunner work in the field made me realize I wanted to produce a heavy-duty kennel with as much drive as he gave when retrieving. I wanted to build the world’s best dog crate.Since that morning I’m proud to say that Gunner Kennels has helped keep thousands of pets safe on the road – because every detail of this crate is designed and tested in real conditions, for the invested dog owner. Man's Best Friend deserves MAN'S BEST KENNEL®.
