Creative is where the fun really happens.  In this level you will be creating your own course based on a set of obstacles.  Your course must include all the obstacles in that set.  You must have at least 10 behaviors (maximum 20) for these obstacles.  

If for any reason you cannot find a spot or create the obstacles in a listed course, you may create your own.  Please submit the obstacles with pictures of the course(s) you need to create to coach@playyourwayobedience.com.   

For instance: the obstacles in set one are Broom, Garbage Can, Pails, PVC Pipe, Surfboard, Boogie Board, Pillows, and Foam Rollers.  You would set these up in your training area or backyard scattered about.  Then start working out the skills you could have your dog do with each obstacle.  The broom could be on top of two pails for a jump. The garbage can could be on its side for a short enclosed tunnel. The foam rollers are balance beams and jump bumps and you could add sit, down, and stand on the rollers.  The PVC Pipe could be placed in a maze like construction and your dog could be asked to figure out how to get from one end to another.  The Surfboard and Boogie Board are good for up, on, over, jump, sit, down, crawl, sit pretty and a dozen other tricks.

Novice level requires 3 creative courses, Open, Excellent and Masters require five creative course.  The type and complexity of the obstacles will increase as you go up the levels.  Creative is an actual course, all obstacles to be done in one session and one video.  You can repeat obstacles for different skills in the same course.

Remember that Novice Level in Creative has a pre-requisite of having obtained at least Open in Standard and Jumpers.
