Description

What is CARAT?

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 the profile created by the nuances and specifics of this complex interaction of multiple traits, an accurate picture is created of the individual, regardless of breed or age.

At all times, behavior 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.

Who needs CARAT?

CARAT is a must-have tool for any serious animal professional who is involved in assessing behavior.

Whether you are a trainer, a behaviorist, a breeder, a veterinarian, in rescue/shelter work, or involved in service dog organizations, CARAT can open a new world of observation and understanding.

CARAT will fine tune your assessments, your behavior modification & training plans, improve your selection of suitable dogs for a given task, sharpen your breeding program’s focus on desired traits, and help find the best possible job/task/home for an individual dog.

This is CARAT Level I-Intro training, which includes development of observation skills, basic Level I CARAT concepts, introduction to assessments, and a very heavy focus on video.

Join us and find out why those who know CARAT say, “CARAT changes everything!”
