The Royal Canadian Mounted Police needs help in naming the puppies that will become Canada’s future RCMP police service dogs.
Canadian children once again can choose the names of 13 German shepherd puppies that will be born at the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alberta, throughout the year.
The 13 children whose puppy names will be selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the puppy they named, a plush dog called Justice and an official RCMP baseball cap.
The rules of the contest are simple:
- puppy names must begin with the letter “K” and have no more than two syllables and nine letters,
- contestants must live in Canada and be 14 years old or younger,
- only one entry per child must be sent,
- entries must be received no later than April 11, 2017.
To participate, fill out the online form or mail your puppy name, own name, age, complete address and telephone number to:
