An Overview of CARAT: The Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool

Presenter: Nancy Reyes

Developed by Suzanne Clothier in 2007, CARAT (Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool) is a novel assessment system that categorizes behavior traits in multiple components that are intuitive and practical. It is the assessment system currently in use at selected guide dog schools,

and is used to evaluate puppies, breeding stock and dogs coming in for training. CARAT takes a detailed view of the individual dog as a unique combination of many factors working together to influence, exacerbate, mitigate and enhance each other.

In this two hour workshop we will present an overview of CARAT

At all times, behaviour is assessed according to how productive, functional, or adaptive it may be, with a full understanding that what may be productive, functional or adaptive in one context may not be in another context. For example, there would be great differences in the CARAT profiles for a successful guide dog, competitive agility and a suitable companion for an elderly person with mobility issues.
