CH Karma's Star Icon Lunar Eclipse, Jill Hardy
Judge: Ms. Valerie Barber

The TTCA Futurity Stakes was established to provide breeders with a venue, held annually at the TTCA Specialty, to exhibit those dogs they bred which best demonstrate the goals of their breeding program as exemplified by the TTCA breed standard.

The Futurity event is intended to be a prestigious one, as no other TTCA and/or AKC exhibition advances the cause of the breed in the same way. It is an occasion when the Tibetan Terrier breeder community is formally recognized for the contributions they make to the breed, as well as gain greater awareness as to the inherited possibilities in fellow TTCA member breeding programs. It is the TTCA breeder community which points the way to the future of the breed, thus the extreme importance of the event as an educational tool for the entire TTCA membership is apparent.

Major Rules for Futurity Participation for litters and dogs born on or after January 1, 2016 are:

  1. Litters must be nominated by a TTCA member breeder within 4 months of whelping. Alternatively, individual dogs from litters meeting eligibility requirements may be nominated after the age of 4 months.
  2. All nominations require compliance with the TTCA Guidelines for Responsible Breeders.
  3. A nominated dog may be shown at any one Futurity Stakes during its lifetime entered in a Puppy, a Junior, or an Adult class.
  4. The eligible dog must be shown by the breeder, owner, member of their immediate household or an amateur substitute.
