Very pleased withy purchase and the excellent service. Since they are changing the rules for travelling on airplane with service dog, I would need a letter stating the training of my dog saying he is approved for psychiatric service dog, can you guy offer that type of letter/form? Since I was happy with your service I would like to use your service again. Thank you Tara Guillemette 514 557-6963 tarastephy@hotmail.com
