Subj: Thank you letter for training


Dear Mr. Jerry Bradshaw,


I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the excellent training that Anna Gianninoto provided to our K-9 Team at East Mississippi Correctional Facility here in Meridian. From the first day of training when we took possession of our dogs to the last day of the certification process.  Anna was very helpful and very professional in her approach and knowledge of canine handling.  She was very patient with me as I made a lot of mistakes and answered any and all of my questions.  Anna, who has never worked in the correctional environment, listened and tailored her training to meet our needs.  I would also like to compliment you on the quality of the dogs that your company provided for us. Both dogs are well mannered and hard working.   Maja has found a home with me and is a real pleasure to work with.


I know that we are at the bottom floor of a new program and the way training was provided was a new approach.  I feel we are headed in the right direction and it is all thanks to you and your staff. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in preparing the dogs and training us as dog handlers.  Anna is a true professional and it showed every day.  She is a great credit to you and your company. Thank you again for everything.
