Kiah is an English Cream Golden Retriever who was born on December 6, 2019, in California. At just 8 weeks old, she came to live with Dr. Monaco, who named her after the Sanskrit word for “New Beginnings.” Kiah is a highly trained dog who graduated from ClubK9’s service dog training program in December of 2021. She has earned her Canine Good Citizen and Advanced Rally AKC titles and is a trained PTSD service dog. 

Despite her training, Kiah’s true passion is giving hugs to everyone who needs one and showing off her toys. She is currently  “working” as a clinic therapy dog, bringing comfort and support to the clinic team with her gentle temperament. She is loved by everyone who meets her and has quickly become an important member of Dr. Monaco’s family and clinic.
