Futurity Sire & Dam Jackpot

In conjunction with the 2019 Futurity, dog owners and breeders will be able to nominate a sire or dam of a Futurity dog of their choosing for one of two separate jackpots, one for Futurity dog sires and one for dams. Each nomination will cost $50, with $40 going into the sire or dam pot, and $10 into the Futurity class payout.

The owner of a sire or dam has the first right to nominate a dog. We ask if you are not the owner of the sire or dam, that you obtain written permission from the owner to nominate a dog.

The champion in each jackpot division (sire and dam), will be determined by the points earned by each sire or dam from Futurity dog placings. Points will be awarded by rankings of placings for Futurity dogs in each round. The jackpot winners will receive a plaque with sire or dam’s name, the Futurity dog’s picture, and representation of the NCA logo.

Each person nominating a dog must be an NCA member. Nominations must be postmarked by April 1, 2019. No late nominations will be accepted. 

Please send entry fees and registration papers to the NCA Office:
