Kamloops RCMP is home to Eric, Fargo and Griff, police service dogs who were all born at the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfail, Alberta and now all work together in Kamloops.
Again this year, the RCMP need help in naming the puppies that will become Canada’s future RCMP police service dogs. Children under the age of 14 can submit names that may be chosen for one of 13 German Shephard puppies born throughout the year.
Rules of the contest:
- 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
With their parent’s permission, children can participate online at www.rcmp-grc.ca/depot/pdstc-cdcp/name-the-puppy-nomme-le-chiot-eng.htm or mail your puppy name, own name, age, complete address and telephone number to:
Name the Puppy 2017 Contest
RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre
P.O. Box 6120
Iniisfail, AB T4G 1S8
There will be one winner from each province and territory. Non-winning puppy names will be considered for other puppies born during the year.
Contest winners will be announced on May 11, 2017.
Who knows? Maybe the name you submit will be chosen for a puppy. And maybe some day that dog will come to work at Kamloops Detachment alongside Eric, Fargo and Griff.
