Many individuals with type 1 diabetes spend their days constantly monitoring their blood sugar levels in order to prevent symptoms of hypoglycemia. If left untreated, low blood sugar levels can lead to seizures, blackouts, and even comas. There are early symptoms of hypoglycemia such as sweating, shaking, or confusion, however, after a few years, a person with type 1 diabetes may lose their ability to feel these symptoms as they develop Hypoglycemia Unawareness.

Living a balanced life with Type 1 diabetes isn't always easy. With the support of a diabetic alert dog, that balance becomes a possibility. Dog Training Elite has partnered with Tattle Tail Scent Dogs, the top diabetic alert service dog trainer in the country, to provide a diabetic alert service dog to assist with your needs. Your diabetic alert dog is a service dog you can take anywhere and who will aid you with alerting for stability, safety, and support.

About Diabetes Assistance Dogs


A diabetic alert service dog is trained to identify the subtle changes in an individual’s blood chemistry and alert them or their caregivers to low blood sugar before critical symptoms occur. Individuals who would benefit from a diabetic alert dog may experience:

  • Hypoglycemia Unawareness
  • Control Blood Sugar with Insulin
  • Frequent Hypoglycemia (Particularly at Night)
  • Individuals that Live Alone
  • Individuals with disabilities, or an inability to recognize and react to symptoms.

A diabetic alert service dog can decrease constant worries about hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia and improve the quality of life for those suffering from diabetes. A service dog can accompany their handlers in almost all public facilities, transportation, and housing units.

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.


  • Empowering Owners
    We empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
  • Personalized
    We deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
  • Environment Specific
    We train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive
    We support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved
    We work with all members of the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

Fantastic trainers and proven methodology. We have a 1 1/2 year old 80 lbs Sheepadoodle. Within about 6 weeks, he changed from a leash-puller to a full on off leash dog. We hike and run with him off leash and enjoy walking with him a lot more (I climbed a Colorado 14er with him yesterday fully off leash). Life-changing for us. Highly recommend.

I’ve been working with DTE Dog Training Elite, Since August 2021. Told them I had a 28 year old daughter with cognitively delayed Epilepsy, balance issues depression and anger, They found the perfect dog for my daughter. Nevaeh is only 5 1/2 months old and is very well trained/behaved, smart, and loving. DTE and the Ballard family have been so kind and helpful. I look forward to continued training, and the new friends I have made at DTE

We’ve only had our consultation but so far everyone we’ve interacted with has been outstanding. Meredith helped get us set up and Sarah came for an at home visit. She was warm and personable and helped answer all our questions!

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Dog Training Elite-Denver! Our yellow Labrador, Luke, has done wonderfully—such an amazing transformation he has come through—with all the professional training from Dog Training Elite! He really looks forward to his training time everyday and loves Group Class as well! I LOVE our training time together and just the everyday stuff like…healing when we go for a walk and his eagerness to try to fit in with other dogs he doesn’t know…has become so much easier! It has definitely strengthened our bond even deeper.. plus we get to experience so many “Good Dog Days” together now! I couldn’t be happier with all the support, patience, expert training and helpful advice with whatever we needed. We really want to thank ALL of the trainers and especially the owners/trainers, Bert, Sarah and Adria, for helping us through every aspect of Luke’s training…and to be honest, more help was needed on my end then in Luke’s! LOL! We feel like family and this is a rare find with any business! I highly recommend Dog Training Elite for your fur babies! The bond you create with your dog, through professional training from Dog Training Elite-Denver, will last a life time!

We were at a loss on how to help our puppy develop to be a well mannered dog. We saw immediate positive results when we started this program.

I met Sarah at Aspen Grove and signed up for a home demonstration. The appointment was set, but I called Sarah in hysterics because Bucky had escaped from the front door for the umpteenth time. Sarah moved her schedule around so that we could meet sooner. I admit, I was a bit skeptic that my money would go to waste and that it wasn't possible in six sessions for Bucky to change. Well, six sessions later I was in tears again; this time because Bucky was listening to my commands and seemed to be so responsive. As an aside, the Ballard family members are exceptional human beings.

Seems like we have met the whole team and I cannot speak highly enough of the time and patience they bring to us each week in helping us learn to effectively train our puppy. Highly recommend them and will use them for future dogs whom we want to train as well.

In the midst of the Covid 19 quarantine our family had the opportunity to adopt a young mini schnauzer. There were some issues that we wanted to be addressed but didn't know what to do. Simple walks were difficult and general obedience was not always so easy. Trying to figure out our new dog was stressful at times. But, thanks to the Ballard's and Dog Training Elite, life with our dog is so much more enjoyable for our family and the our dog. It has changed everything for us as first time dog owners. Dog Training Elite is exactly what we needed. There continued support is still ongoing even now as we continue to train our dog. If you want to have that special bond and relationship with your dog, I highly recommend Dog Training Elite.

These wonderful people transformed my two beautiful but Ornery dogs into well behaved beautiful ones. Before them I could not walk them together with out taking life or limb risk. They broke my ankle going after a Christmas reindeer ornament. Now we go everyday along with my daughters dog without any danger to them, other dogs or myself. It is worth every penny and then some. I give them 10 stars.

The quality of their program is so much better than we have experienced in the past with other places. Most programs only make your dog do something if you have a treat. This is an affordable solution to serious training needs.
