Your kid could name a police dog, say RCMP

The recent births of German shepherd puppies at the Police Dog Service Training Centre in central Alberta has RCMP hosting a contest. And it’s for kids! Canadian children between the ages of four and 14 are encouraged to submit a potential name for one of the 13 pups. There is a strict list of guidelines, that have been posted to our webpage. The 13 winning entries will receive, a laminated 8″ x 10″ photo of the pup they named, a plush police dog named Justice, and an RCMP water bottle… all for naming a puppy. A job none too ruff… for your average kid.

The suggested names must:

• Begin with the letter ‘N’
• Have one or two syllables
• Not exceed nine letters in length
The 13 winning entries will receive:
• A laminated 8″ x 10″ photo of the pup they named
