Letter of Support for Therapy Dog Volunteer Team
Completed: January 22, 2018
Expires: January 22, 2019
To Whom It May Concern:
Dr. Jolee Brunton has been under my professional guidance for training her therapy dog. As Dr. Brunton is a licensed psychologist, she regularly uses her therapy dog in her practice, Focus Psychological Services. Dr. Brunton has made a wonderful commitment to her dog’s training, health, and care. I have full confidence that Dr. Brunton and her therapy dog will bring much joy and companionship to those they volunteer, work, and visit with!
Dr. Brunton’s therapy dog is a brown MGA Labradoodle named Pearl. Pearl has earned the outstanding American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Award and is surpassing all needed therapy dog commands with Golden State Service Dogs since October 2016, qualifications which can be verified on our website. Additionally, Dr. Brunton continues to excel with Pearl’s therapy dog certification with Love on a Leash. With Pearl’s advanced therapy dog commands and Dr. Brunton’s professionalism and responsible, kind, patient, and respectful attitude, I know that they will make a wonderful attribution to wherever they volunteer at.
As Pearl will be regularly working with Dr. Brunton within the community, she will make sure that Pearl continues to have regular health checkups by her veterinarian, maintain her health preventives and grooming. As Dr. Brunton is fully responsible for Pearl and her actions, if required, she can provide any needed health certificates and vaccine records, as she ensures that Pearl is well-behaved and kept safe while working. Please note that Golden State Service Dogs is not liable for any dog or handler, and does not provide liability insurance or pet medical coverage to clients. If a client wants such coverage, they are responsible for researching, purchasing and maintaining coverages from an outside licensed provider of their choice.
Thank you for your time and support in welcoming Pearl and Dr. Brunton as a therapy dog volunteer team. Please contact me if you have any questions.
