About Maera

Maera, a miniature Alaskan Klee Kai, joined the CreScent Service Dogs Inc. family in December 2017, a pleasant surprise, and a very welcome addition to the family. At that time, plans were already in motion to bring in a puppy within a year, yet little Maera came along and enchanted her breeder, everyone she met, and Christina as well. She has an amazing temperament: confident and extremely sociable, curious and intelligent, she quickly demonstrated an aptitude for scent work, and a love for training games. 

In just four UKC conformation shows, Maera far exceeded expectations earning her Championship at 9 months old, without breed competition, by placing in the Northern Group four times against more mature and solid competition.

 

Maera has proven to be an exceptional breed ambassador, well rounded and versatile, she has received consistent praise by judges and trainers alike on her wonderful and stable temperament and friendly and social nature. She loves to learn and is always eager to try new things. She has never met a stranger, and will happily give any new "friend" kisses.

In this compilation video, Maera is demonstrating her gluten detection task and some public access behaviors: loose leash walking through a store and public restroom etiquette. She raises a paw for gluten and makes eye contact for gluten-free. In February 2019, she finished training for her primary SD task and passed her O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Gluten Detection Standards Test (now known as the OGAD Title).
