Plus Titles 1-3 

The Plus title series requires the skills of Levels 1, 2 and 3 to be completed in a novel location not used in a prior video submission and different for each of the Plus levels.  Details for Levels 1, 2 and 3 are located on the individual level pages.

Levels 1 through 3 of the Plus series OR of the more challenging Honors series must be completed before teams can proceed to TEAM Levels 4-6.

Teams may complete each Plus level in conjunction with the original level or may choose to complete them after successfully finishing all of the TEAM Levels 1-3. For example, a team might choose to do TEAM1, 2 and 3 followed by TEAM1+, 2+, 3+ OR the team might do TEAM1 and then TEAM1+, TEAM2 and then 2+, etc. Once completed, the “TEAM+” title may be added after your dog’s name at the appropriate level.

Location planning is important for the Plus levels, as the location may not have been used in any prior video submissions. We suggest thinking about space requirements and considering how planning may assist you. For example, TEAM3 — which can be completed in any familiar location, including previously used locations — likely needs a fair amount of space compared to Level 1 or 2. You may use a location for either TEAM1+ or 2+ and then use it for TEAM3 only IF you submit the 1+ or 2+ video prior to the TEAM3 video.
