The G1 Kennel from GUNNER is double wall rotomolded for twice the impact protection. It has been tested to withstand a 630-lbs. sled dropped from over eight feet, a 200-foot cliff drop, 4,000 lbs. of force, a 12-gauge shotgun, and much more. Yes, GUNNER’s G1 is a virtually bombproof kennel that is 5-star crash test rated and proudly made in the USA. What is the price of peace of mind?

The G3 Kennel from Dakota 283 is a strong option for uplanders with its one-piece design, easy grip handle and keyed paddle latching door. The kennel also features large ventilation holes for keeping your dog cool and comes with an easy to clean drain hole for those muddy days afield. This kennel is also compatible with Dakota 283’s Forever Kennel Insert Divider for puppies, which allows you to reduce the kennel space inside while your pup is young and also saves you from having to buy a second kennel as he matures.

Orion Kennels – AD Series

Perhaps the most notable feature on the Orion is the door system. Unconventional in design, it is highly functional. The door design combines four 350 lbs. weight rated straps at each corner, for a total of 1,400 lbs., keeping the door closed in an accident, but also allowing the door to flex, slowing down the rate at which the dog will hit the door in an impact, and thus reducing the probability of internal injuries. The AD Series Kennels from Orion are also available in several sizes and vibrant colors.
