PARKSVILLE — Do you know a great dog name that starts with a ‘D’?

The RCMP is training 10 puppies to work as police dogs and they’re holding a contest to name them.

The deadline for entries is March 7, 2011. Contest winners and prizes will be announced on April 4.

“This contest provides a tremendous opportunity for Canadian children to take part in a police program that saves lives and protects their neighborhood,” said Inspector Lawrence Aimoe, the officer-in-charge of the the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre.

• Contestants can suggest only one name (one entry per person). The name may be for a male or a female pup.

• The name must start with the letter “D”.

• The name must have no more than nine letters.

• The name must be one or two syllables.

• Contestants must live in Canada and be 16 years old and under.

To enter, contestants must print their name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy on a postcard and mail it to:

“Name the Puppy Contest”, Police Dog Service Training Centre, Box 6120, Innisfail, AB, T4G 1S8.
