Import of animals

This is the world's most modern animal facility, which is designed to provide the animals with the most comfortable handling and stopover possible. The whole building is protected by surveillance cameras, entry is permitted to authorized personnel only. Here too, your animal will be safe and secure.

Why we fly dogs to the US for the US Armed Forces

Certificate of Achivement Maybe you’ll ask yourself: What’s the connection between Gradlyn Kennels and the US Armed Forces? The answer is to be found in the company’s very beginnings. Starting in 1968, the business was limited to fly military dogs and pets of members of the US Armed Forces between the US and Germany. Although our customer base has expanded over the years, the US Armed Forces still represent an important customer as many members of the US Armed Forces do not only use the services of Gradlyn Kennels when flying on business, but also when travelling privately.
