The Puppy Name Game
By host @ 1:02 PM :: 848 Views
 

I love, love that some of our new puppy owners are so excited about their new family member.  It reminds me of how hard it was to wait for Christmas when I was a kid.  That kind of excitement and joy makes it so much easier for us to let our puppies go.  One fun activity to make the days go by is starting a discussion about what to name your puppy.  Each dog has two names – a registered name and a call name and they don’t need to be close to each other.  A call name is simple.  I have found the best call names are names that are distinct and easy to yell over and over again.  Breeders have different naming conventions for the registered name of the dog.  Here is the ‘Name Game’.

  •  The AKC allows 36 characters (including spaces) for a registered name.
  •  The registered name of your puppy will begin with Stonewall’s + a word that begins with their litter letter.

 For example:

  • Scout is from our A-litter and her registered name is ‘Stonewall’s Away Again Scout ‘.
  • River is from our C-litter and her registered name is ‘Stonewall’s Cool Drink of Water’.
  • Rookie is from our D-litter and his registered name is ‘Stonewall’s Delta Force’.

 I think you get the point about registered names.  If nothing else, naming a puppy can be fun dinner conversation.  In the end, the name will grow to only have one meaning to you – your new family member.

We were fortunate to get together Abby, Blue, Cesar, Tessa, and Scout for a play date.  It was great to see how all the puppies were growing and changing.  Their new owners have been hard at work training and it shows.  It was a wonderful opportunity for us to get together and trade tips and stories.
