Riding shotgun on our way to Tampa to look at some puppies. They're 4 weeks old and in another 4 weeks we'll be back to pick up one of the boys.

We need to come up with a good name.

Thoughts?

    We can all give names, but it still comes down what you personally connect with. With that being said, I'll throw out Harley.
    Funny thing about names was the difficulty wife and I had naming our own children.
    We both were teachers. Each name one would pick, the other would remember one hellion they taught with that name.
    We finally settled on Casey for our first whether it was male or female, and Blake for the second whether male or female.

    Back when I was a kid we had a fellow in the community that didn't name his dogs....he numbered them! 'Course he had hunting dogs, mostly Plotts, and a bear or boar hog could be a little rough on the dog population....inventory was always subject to sudden changes!

    A dog's name should be short and easy to recognize. It should be repeated to him over and over when you are feeding or petting so make it concise.

    My current two are Rigby after the 416 rigby and Monroe like the county.

    Most all of my dogs were named after guns or places I have fond memories of.

    I've buried Lostman, Chatam, and Mag most recently.

    My next dog will be named Zeus. Always thought it was a cool name for a dog.

    Triple.... You need to keep in Mind....

    This is a conformation show prospect pup......

    I am sure the breeder is going to have input on the Registered name...

    As far as the call name goes.... It will still end up listed in show catalogs, win reports... Stats, standings, etc....

    Why would the breeder care and how would they have input into what someone names a dog that doesn't belong to them?

    MOST GOOD breeders require you to use the kennel name in the registered name. And a good most also require that they approve the registered names of show and performance prospect puppies.....

    And if Trip has the same deal going on as he had... The breeder will be co owning the dog with him...

    Interesting. Is that in the contract or just done by common practice?

    Usually it is in the contract.....

    And now the AKC offers online registration. And breeders of merit, have to submit the registration for each puppy in the litter at one time. So the paperwork is filled out and signed by the puppy buyer and the breeder when the owner picks up the puppy. Then when all the puppies have the paperwork filled out, the breeder sends it in.

    And some breeders do the registered names of all puppies...

    I mentioned to Trip about the call name because the dog will likely be published in catalogs, etc.... You do not want anything too goofy...

    This is gonna be a tough decision but luckily we'll get some help from a handful of judges to try and determine which of the three boys might have a little edge over the others
