In support of the RCMP’s Name the Puppy contest, the Lower Mainland’s Integrated Police Dog Service (IPDS) invited the media to attend a photo opportunity with two puppy recruits and police service dog Dave at BC RCMP headquarters today.
“This is a national contest and we want to invite BC kids to take part,” says Corporal Mike Jordan. There have been winners from BC in the past. Five-year-old Andrew Chin’s entry to name an RCMP puppy was one of the few chosen from across Canada last year.”
We 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 rules of the contest are simple:
- Puppy names must begin with the letter “L” 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 sent no later than February 28, 2018.
