Our Celiac Story
I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2017, I found that eating a strict gluten-free diet was very challenging due to many instances where food in restaurants contained gluten, even though it should have been gluten-free. After getting sick many times, I decided to train a gluten detection dog. We have been training since Suki was 6 months old. She checks all my food, medicine, and personal care products. She has already saved me several times from getting violently ill from gluten.
Suki is a Portuguese Water Dog who is a Gluten Detection Dog. She checks food, medicines, and personal care products for her mom, Kendra who has Celiac Disease. She raises a paw when she detects gluten and noses a leg when there is none. She was born March 27, 2020, and she is a true pandemic puppy.
