Gunner Kennel Sale

If anyone is interested in a Gunner Kennel they are having a Black Friday sale with everything on their website 20% off. Which means a kennel will only cost you a leg not an arm and a leg.

Seriously, they are excellent and very safe for car travel kennels. But very pricey.

They are nice. I might have considered them if they had made the small size when I NEEDED it! LOL! OTOH, they are VERY heavy, so in the end, I think I'm happier with my double Variocage. It's not even meant to be moved.

Nancy Speed (who is sometimes on the forum... she owns Pixel's sister, Elke) has a Gunner, though, and she has been very happy with it!

The small size weighs in at 28 pounds!

I've been all over the place about what to do now that Henry has outgrown his sleepy pod. I've been using a soft sided carrier which he doesn't seem to like much and which only keeps him confined. no protection in the event of a crash. I was more relaxed about it until recently because I lived so far out in the country that the nearest traffic light was 20 miles away. There just isn't any traffic there. Now that I've moved (more or less), it's a different picture.

I took the plunge on the Gunner. I may regret it. But the plan would be to leave it strapped in the car. I hope he adapts to it. Me too.

We always had Coop in a car seat with his harness. I wondered if in a crate would be better. He wasnt a big fan of the car. It kept us from taking him everywhere with us.

I think that with a single dog, especially if you can LEAVE it in the car, it's an excellent choice!

I use a Ruff Tough Kennel for Pixel. It's on the back seat in my Forester, and the other two ride in the Variocage in the cargo space. The RTK is very sturdy, but light enough that it's easy to take out if I need to use the back seat for people. (and it's a lot cheaper too)

If you watch some videos of neck displacement in a fairly slow accident, you will never want your dog in a car harness again. I used to have Kodi ride in a car harness too. But as much as I enjoyed having him beside me, the more I've learned the more I've been convinced how unsafe it is. So now they all ride in very safe crates. But even less-safe crates properly secured in the car are better than a harness, IMO.

We never realized that. Well be getting a crate for the car now!

I know the Gunner is expensive but it looks pretty safe. Being that much money, Id only want to buy one so we have to be sure to get the right size. Im assuming the small would be good?

I have not seen the Gunners in person. The person I know who has one (besides Henry's Mom) has a very small Havanese. (Pixel's sister) So hopefully Henry's mom will respond... he should be similar in size to your boy.

Well fingers crossed I ordered the right size because with the shipping it would be an expensive mistake. I used the Gunner quiz on their website and put in answers and got small as a result, even when I changed the answers to indicate a larger size. He also has a larger crate he sleeps in at night. It would be too big for safety in a car because he could become a pinball in it. It's slightly bigger than a Gunner medium. For the car I want him to somewhat snug in the crate. So I went with the small.

I'll let you know when it comes if it's the right size. i think Henry is on the larger end of his litter. I don't expect it until at least the end of next week. They're not quickest out the door.

Just saw the videos of the puppies "manding" they looked so cute and attentive.
