RCMP Asking For Kids Help Naming Puppies
The most adorable contest is back with the RCMP’s annual search for 13 names for Canada’s future Police Service Dogs.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are asking children to help them with naming the 13 German Shepard puppies that are going to be born this year. 3 of which have already been born (above.)
The 13 children whose puppy names are chosen will receive a 8×10 picture of the puppy they named, a plush dog called Justice and an official RCMP Ball cap.
Here are the rules!
- 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.

Winning names will be chosen by the entire PDSTC staff. In the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name, a draw will determine the winning entry. There will be one winner from each province and territory.
Non-winning puppy names will be considered for other puppies born during the year.
The PDSTC is home to the RCMP national police dog training program located in Innisfail, Alberta and is a part of RCMP “Depot” Division. The Centre has earned a great reputation for breeding top quality working German shepherds and for training dogs with outstanding searching and tracking abilities.
