Briard Dog Name Considerations

When naming your Briard, there are certain considerations for you to think about.  You could name your pooch based on your favorite TV or movie star Briard, like Ruff, Buck, or Cho Cho.  You could also consider choosing a French name for your Briard, like Lucille or Pascal. Color could be another inspiration for a name as the Briard breed can be gray, cream, and black.  Names like Shadow or Ebony can be great for a pooch with a black coat. 

Remember, choosing a name is a daunting task, so it’s important to pick something that’s going to suit your pooch forever.  The temperament of your four-legged friend will be unique, so that’s something you can use in your favor when choosing a name – for example Bouncer, for the energetic pooch!

You could also mix it up and put two names together to make one unique name, like Dolly Darcy for instance. Happy choosing!
