The purpose of the Futurity Stakes is to encourage the breeding of the best possible Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and to reward the breeders for their efforts. For this reason, the stakes are weighted in favor of the breeder. The Futurity Stake, which may be held in conjunction with the National Specialty, is entered by nominating a litter. Individual puppies from a nominated litter are eligible to compete in the first annual Futurity held on or after the date the puppies reach six month of age, and only in this stake. In the Futurity Stake, there will be eleven cash wins, with three individuals (the breeder, the owner and the sire's owner) partaking of each for a total of thirty-three monetary awards won by eight different Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
Nominations to the Futurity are open only to breeders who are active members, in good standing, of the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club OR active members who are in good standing of a Regional Cavalier Club that is an ACKCSC member club (for a list of member clubs click here, member clubs have the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club logo). The bitch whose litter is nominated must be owned, co-owned or leased by a American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club member OR an active member who is in good standing of a Regional Cavalier Club that is an ACKCSC member club. This requirement does not apply to the owner(s) of any eligible puppy, or the owner(s) of the sire. To be eligible to compete in the Futurity, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel must meet the following requirements:
1) Be from a litter, which was properly and timely nominated.
2) Have been individually nominated before it reached the age of four months (BEFORE, not ON the 4 month birthday).
3) Be properly entered in one of the regular classes of the National Specialty and Obedience Trial.
4) Not be bred or ever owned, or co-owned, or leased by that year's judge, or a member of his or her immediate family.
