Dog Names


Naming your dog says as much about the Owner as it does about the dog. Depending on whether your dog is a pet, a companion, a working dog, or a slavedog, the name you give him conveys an image to him and to those who meet him.


Many Owners choose to name their dogs with given human names - Jeffpup or Jackpup for example. Other choose a name that is strictly a dog's name. The choice is up to the individual Owner and must suit the individual dog.

For those of you who have yet to name your dog, or for those of you as yet unnamed, here are some ideas...
