Introduction

Active dog names are very popular among monikers for dogs. Many new dog owners choose active dog names to relate to the activity their dog enjoys the most. There are many dogs, of all breeds, who are spry in many ways. Some dogs love to hunt or were bred to hunt, some dogs enjoy playing in the water, there are dogs who like agility, running, and fetching, and more. The adventures your dog enjoys depends on your dog's personality and what they were originally bred to do. However, there are dog's who were not "bred" to do anything specific but who still love being active. Many sprightly dogs make great house dogs and family members but need activity to keep them content. Even if it is daily walking or running free in a field, your dog is considered active, and you can choose any name that fits what your dog loves to do with you!
