Remember, in diabetes, there will be times when sugar is high, and low, and everything in between. It will be a range over a 12 hour period. Especially when using this type of insulin. It matters more how high it gets and when.

In human diabetes, the only way to try and avoid all high sugar is with a glucose monitoring device that injects fast insulin when needed.
Dogs can handle high sugar better than humans over the long term generally.
