Name our Guide Dog pup

Can you help us name a new guide dog puppy?

We need your help to name a new guide dog puppy on behalf of Guide Dogs UK, following our donation of £2,500 to the charity.

Name suggestions for the new pup can be submitted through the intu Victoria Centre Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages. To help you choose your name, please keep in mind that all name suggestions should be two syllables long and not sound similar to any training commands such as ‘sit’, ‘stand’ or ‘wait’.

The winning name will be announced on 30 August 2019.

The money from the £2,500 donation will go towards the puppy’s very important first year, including food, training and veterinary bills. It also forms an integral part of the long-term partnership between intu and the charity.

Competition Terms & Conditions

Only one name can be chosen for our Guide Dog puppy and as a result there will be a set of criteria the name suggestion needs to meet in order to be considered as our chosen Guide Dog puppy name. For instance:

  • Name suggestions should be two syllables long.
  • Name suggestions should not sound similar to any training commands such as ‘sit’, ‘stand’ or ‘wait’.
  • Name suggestions should not be difficult to pronounce.
  • Name suggestions should not undermine the dignity of the Guide Dog or it's owner.

Once we have collected all of the suitable name suggestions we will present the names to a panel of intu Victoria Centre & intu Broadmarsh managers who will make the final decision on the name. They will take into account a variety of factors when choosing the name such as the popularity of the name suggested.
