RCMP promoting puppy-naming contest for kids

Have you been sitting on a great name for a police dog? Well, now’s your chance.

The RCMP announced they are looking for the public’s help when it comes to naming the puppies that will grow up to join the force.

As a result, the Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) is asking Canadians to suggest names for 13 German shepherd puppies that will be born at the Centre in 2021.

The contest is open to children between the ages of four and 14, and participants are encouraged to be creative and imaginative when it comes to their suggestions.

Additionally, all the names must start with the letter “P,” they must not be longer than two syllables, and they must not be more than nine letters.

The 13 winners will all receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice, and an RCMP water bottle.

Further, while this particular contest will only have 13 winners, there is the potential for additional contests for other puppies born during this year.

Those who wish to submit their entry for the contest must do so online—the deadline to submit is March 18.
