To add to the naming "rules". 1. Should not be a human name - no "Fred's". 2. Should be a real word. 3. Should have some significance to the owner(s) - something to do with their life style. 4. Should describe a characteristic - physical or behavioral - of the dog. the dog I had for 13 years - best dog in the world - was named "Flash" - as an extra part to #3 my wife is a pretty serious photographer.


that can be taken so many different ways.

I once met a guy that named his dog Matt. I found it weird and for some reason a little creepy. In otherwords avoid names typically reserved for our species. Mike Morin

We always named our male retrievers after North American wildlife:
Badger, Bear, Otter, Buck, Raven . . .

This worked out pretty well until I had to try to explain to my (then) ten-year-old daughter why Beaver might not be a good name for a dog. Recycled the name Badger for another go-around.

Had two female Labs named Lily and Pad. Funny thing was, we got Pad pre-named at three--already had Lily.

Any climbing term can be a good name if you really want it to.


"Chickenhead"? Ugh, sorry.

Someone said let the name come by itself. I like that and have done it for all the animals I've lived with. Even some of the people.

Oh yeah, and "buck" rhymes with "truck". Duh.

Sometimes you got to break your own rules. My dogs have never been ornaments. They are family companions and working bird dogs. They need a purpose. Name them something that, as said before, has a meaning for you and that they'll respond to. So simpler is better in my mind. A dog which doesn't respond to it's name and more importantly it's owner, can be a dead dog in a bad situation. Nobody wants that.

I named my dog Beazy. Short for 'be easy', which was something we said (and smoked) in college. He has learned "smoke a bowl" when he needs to lay down and chill out..

My dog's name is Ruy, which is a common Portuguese name. I was told it's pronounced Hroo-ee so I've always slanged it to "hoo" or "hoo-dog" (he answers to both).

If my next dog is female I've already picked out Lulubelle or Loo for short.

This is the coolest dog I have ever met. Toast! He has summited several snowy glaciated peaks in the Cordillera Blanca . Here is his write up on Skyline Adventures website.

Toast the Wonder Mutt - Camp Guard, Great Companion

Toast was born in a small cardboard box in the Huaraz Central Market with several other less-cute-than-he black puppies. He joined the Skyline family at the ripe young age of 5 weeks and has been both an asset and a joy ever since. Toast has worked in several different capacities within the Skyline Adventure School, serving primarily as a good buddy, but also in security, couch warming, stick gathering, and is pushing the limits of high altitude canine alpine camp guarding!
