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 diabetes isn’t always easy. With the support of a diabetic alert dog, that balance becomes a possibility. Alert dogs for diabetics provide the stability, safety, and support that allows for increased activity and peace of mind.

I have been working with DTE for many months now and I am beyond grateful to have found them. You will not find better or more kind trainers around.

To begin with, they need to honor their word. Neal, "son of the founder" Mestas agreed to look into funding options for service dog training, the relevant charities specify communicating with training facility not client. DTE.AZ couldn't have changed their tune quicker!! ::Take heed:: Need beyond basic trai...

We took our time to review and interview with various dog training companies before deciding to go with Dog Elite. We have been so happy with this decision! We decided when we got our wonderful Samoyed puppy that she would be the best therapy dog for those who are going through rough times and need a smile, Dog Elite h...

I'm sure they are fantastic dog trainers! With that said, they advertise for registration under their service dog training program even though they know that there is no official registration for service dogs, there is no legally recognized registration for service dogs, it is illegal to ask for a service dog's registr...

We have been using Dog Training Elite for about 6 weeks. We have always loved our dog but he was getting to be too much to handle. One day when my wife came back from a run in tears because the dog was pulling so much, I knew something had to be done. If we could not get him to change his behavior, he was going to have...
