Our training program is intensive and takes approximately 6 months to complete. Our trainers are highly specialized in this area of diabetic alert training. We only train a small number of dogs per year, and as a result, feel confident we offer the best dogs available. Our trained dogs are offered at $35,000 cdn.


Our training also includes: 

  1.   All dogs that complete our program will be prepared and trained to  complete the      British Columbia Public access test required for a legal Service Dog designation in    BC, where we are located

  2.  Dogs that compete our program will alert on both low and high blood sugar and offer a highly recognizable and customized alert sequence. They will also offer an audible alert (such as a bell or alarm) for night time alert work

  3.  Intensive training with our team for  5-7 days in your home once the Diabetic Alert Dog is ready to begin living with their new handler.  The individual who will be using this canine as their Diabetic Alert Dog (and their families if they are under the age of 12) would need to be present for training during this timeframe.

  4. We continue training and support once the Diabetic Alert Dog team leaves, including return visits to us, reporting and review of Dog’s performance, video training assignments and possible home visits. Ongoing training and support will continue for at least the first 6 months the Diabetic Alert Dog is in your home.

  5. Canadian Alert Dogs Inc. will incur the initial service dog certification fee

  6. No additional client resources (other than sample shipments) will be required for the initial 6 mo. training period

  7.  Annual follow up to ensure continued success
