Here is a timeline example for 2022 show:
Assumptions May 5, 2022 is the Futurity judging date. National entries close on April 13, 2022.
The 1st possible date to nominate a litter is September 3, 2020 this is the 1st possible date of conception for a litter to be born 9 weeks before November 5, 2020, which is the date that makes a puppy 18 months old (the oldest a nominated puppy can be) on May 5, 2022, which is the Futurity judging date.
Since a nominated puppy must be at least 6 months of age on the Futurity judging date of May 5, 2022, this puppy must be born on November 5, 2021. For a puppy born on November 5, 2021, the person nominating individual puppies from this litter (ie 6-Month nomination form) will need to submit their individual nominations prior to the puppies actually turning 6 months of age since the entry closing date is April 13, 2022. This also means that any puppy born after November 5, 2021, will be too young to be entered in the 2022 Futurity Show. This also means that this puppy’s litter must have been conceived 9 weeks before November 5, 2021, which is September 3, 2021. Therefore, the last possible litter conception date to qualify for the 2022 Futurity show is September 3, 2021.
