The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) needs help in naming a new litter of puppies that will become Canada’s future RCMP police service dogs.

Like in previous years, RCMP are asking Canadian children to 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 winning names must be original, imaginative, and will serve the puppies well during their careers as police dogs.

Rules to apply

  • 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.

Applicants can apply online or by mail including the following: your puppy name, own name, age, complete address and telephone number. Mailing address is:

Name the Puppy 2017 Contest
RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre
P.O. Box 6120
Innisfail, AB T4G 1S8

Winners will be notified by May 11, 2017 with each recipient getting a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the puppy they named, a plush dog called Justice and an official RCMP baseball cap.

How: Online or by mailing your submission

Deadline: April 11, 2017.
