On this episode I speak with Kendra, the human who trained Suki to be a Gluten Detection Dog.  Kendra speaks about how Suki was trained to alert her if any food, drink or medication contains gluten.  Kendra trained Suki during Covid, and although Suki is ready to accompany Kendra into restaurants, stores and on public transportation, the training is ongoing.  Kendra takes us through some of the interesting instances when Suki was able to detect very small amounts of gluten, which Kendra would not have been able to detect from ingredient lists.  I preface and follow up my conversation with Kendra with some general information on working dogs, that you, like me, may not have been aware of.  I’m looking forward to a follow-up conversation with Kendra, so if you have any questions for her, please email me at
