FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT TRACKING™ FOR DOG OWNERS AND PROFESSIONALS
Introducing a dog’s best friend: Functional Assessment Tracking™ (FAT™). Created by professional trainer Suzanne Clothier, FAT™ helps you translate what you know about a dog into a powerfully informative profile.
Each profile is a reflection of your dog in that moment, in that setting, under those conditions. You may create as many profiles as you like, whether that’s every day or every now and then. Each profile can be emailed, printed out or shared via URLs, and all profiles become a part of that dog’s record.
Available as a subscription service, FAT™ will become the hallmark of knowledgeable and compassionate caretakers, whether dedicated owners or animal professionals.
WHO NEEDS FAT™?
You are the expert on your dog. How can you effectively share that knowledge with others caring for your pet? How can you gain knowledge and insight on your pet’s changing needs?
FAT™ makes sure what you know about your dog can go with your dog, so you know all caretakers have the information they need to provide the best possible care. The easy to use format guides you through 15 different aspects of your dog’s behavior, and then creates a comprehensive FAT™profile.
As someone with many animals, Suzanne knows all too well the worries about leaving a beloved companion in someone’s care. FAT™ addresses those worries. Stop asking yourself “Did I remember to tell them…?” Use FAT™ to provide them with the information they need to know.
DOG CARE PROFESSIONALS
So much important information goes into caring for any dog. Will you remember to ask all the right questions? Will you or your staff remember all the details, or recognize changes? FAT™ makes sure that up-to-date, detailed information about the dog stays with the dog.
FAT™ was created to help professional caretakers, such as:
- Veterinarians & Staff
- Trainers & Behaviorists
- Shelters, Rescues & Sanctuaries
- Boarding & Daycare Facilities
- Dog Sitters & Dog Walkers
- Service & Guide Dog Organizations
- Therapy & Service Dogs
Accurate, easily communicated information is vital to providing the best possible care. FAT™ profiles give you and your entire staff a world of current information about each dog. Avoid the confusion of interpretation and inexpert assessments. FAT™ provides clear, observation based information that keeps every one on the same page, and doing the best for the dog.

See Spot Grin will be offering FAT portals to our clients for a small monthly fee as soon as they become available!

It’s a great time to get outside with your pet; for a dog, there’s nothing like a romp in the leaves, while for cats, midday sunbeams have never felt better as the days get shorter and the nights get colder.
