Two major prizes for dogs entered in the Futurities (in addition to plaques and ribbons, of course) are the coveted Ticket To the National Finals, and the possibility of the dog’s sire and dam getting Featured in the Red Book!  But how does that work, exactly?  How are the points earned?

Red Book tabulations are based on the number of dogs competing.  So, the bigger the Futurity/Maturity, the more points will be earned.  We start with the number of dogs defeated, by class.  A dog that goes first in a class of two gets 1 point – one dog was defeated.  A dog in a class of 12 that goes 4th will earn 8 points.  The dog that wins that class gets 11 points.  Pretty simple!  But then the dogs that earn Best or Best Opposite or Reserve may earn more points if they defeat a dog with a higher point total, just like in AKC shows for Best of Winners.  In the example above, if the dog first in a class of 2 goes Best/BestOp/Reserve over the dog that earned the 11 points, the Best/BestOp/Reserve also gets 11 points (replacing its original points earned, not adding to them).  Best Op and Reserves only get extra points based on the classes in their sex.  Best gets extra points based on all classes (Futurities are tabulated separately from Maturities).

Finally the big winners get Bonus Points:  Three for Reserve, Four for Best Opposite and Five for Best.  So after the all Futurities are completed, the points are summed for all the sires and dams.  Progeny shown more than once will only contribute once, their highest single total.  Top 10 Sires and Dams get a two-page Red Book spread, and those ranking 11-20 get one page.
