There are many stressful decisions to be made in this world we live in. One of the hardest is picking a good name for your hunting dog. OK, I hear you’re protesting, there are probably much harder decisions people have to make on a daily basis, but naming a living creature can certainly be tricky.
So how do we name our hunting dogs? The one thing we have to remember is that this is hunting, and when we hunt we kill. Of course naturally, our dogs will be helping us make these killings, and thus should have a name that is tough, rugged, and dare we say mean.
But some hunting dogs serve a different purpose. Some are quite fierce, and others are just to help out, collecting our shot-down quail, or fetching those couple of pheasant you hit a minute ago. Some dogs are more adventurous, and will wander off.
So let’s figure out some names to jog that creative brain of yours. All of these names have an exploratory, fierce, or valiant feel to them. Don’t hesitate to steal one from this list.
