Camping Inspired Dog Name Considerations

You may be tempted to choose a camping inspired name for your new canine buddy for multiple reasons. Of course, if you are an avid camper a name that reflects your love of camping makes perfect sense. After all, you have to call your dog’s name many times throughout the day; why not have the sound of his name remind you of what you love to do?

You may be attracted to a camping themed name as a result of the breed of dog that you have adopted. A Collie like Lassie may bring to mind visions of traipsing through the woods and sleeping in the great outdoors. Dog breeds that enjoy the water often bring to mind the idea of camping by a river, creek or lake, like the Labrador, Newfoundland and Golden Retriever may seem like a good match for a name that brings to mind spending a few days in the woods.

Whatever the reason, a camping inspired name will be an ever-present reminder of the fun you and your dog plan to enjoy.
