Our goal is to increase participation and expand on litter enrollment for the NBHA Futurity. When your dog participates in the NBHA Futurity, the dog owner is automatically qualified to receive a prize of $2000 in cash should the dog that participated in a NBHA Futurity, win the Breeder’s Championship. We will increase the cash prize by $2000 each year with a $6000 cap until the Champion is a dog that participated in a NBHA Futurity. Once the Championship is won by a dog who participated in the NBHA Futurity, the cash prize will be reset to $2000 for the following year.

Therefore, is it prudent that dogs participate in the NBHA Futurity so these dogs will be qualified for additional cash prizes for the rest of their lives, when competing in the Breeder’s Championship. A dog that did not participate in a NBHA Futurity will not qualify his owner for additional cash prize, should he win the Championship. However, the Champion and Runner-Up of the Breeder’s Championship will continue to receive a percentage of the entry fee as advertised.

In addition to the massive cash and prizes offered at the NBHA Futurity, you are competing for the most prestigious and honored juvenile stake the NBHA has to offer. Many of the dogs that have placed or won the NBHA Futurity have gone on to win multiple Championships throughout their carrier. The feeling you encounter when winning elaborate prizes in field trials are somewhat limited in time. However, continuing to participate in the NBHA, in pursuit of winning a Championship, is a feeling that will last a lifetime. So visit our website at www.nbhadog.org and find an upcoming trial near you.

To further offer equal participation from various regions throughout the United States, the Futurity and its companion stakes will rotate from the northwestern region where NBHA trials are most popular to southeastern region where NBHA trials are most popular, every other year.

The 31st Annual NBHA Futurity will be held at Rend Lake, IL on March 28, 2017. The 32nd NBHA Futurity will be held in Cedartown, GA. late February, or early March 2018.

Again, please visit www.nbhadog.org for more information and to locate our NBHA Futurity and Jerry Kilgore Puppy Classic litter enrollment forms. As participation increases, so will the prize structure. A one-time Litter Enrollment fee is $30, an additional $20 late fee will be assessed if received after the litter is six months old.
