The Canaan Dog is an ancient breed that many believe dates back to Biblical times. They are lean, medium-sized dogs with an inquisitive expression. They are confident and very clever. The Canaan Dog requires a handler that has experience with this type of dog. Training and socialization are important because they can be territorial and become problematic when they are mature. If you do decide that this ancient breed is for you, once you find your new puppy it will be time to decide on a fun and unique name. Being a Middle Eastern breed, your search for the right name may just take you in that direction and give you ideas for a one-of-a-kind name.

Once you have decided to add a Canaan Dog to your family and have found a responsible breeder, it is time to pick a name for your new bundle of joy. Being an ancient breed, they are deserving of a name that is as storied as they are. Some people may decide to give their Canaan Dog a Biblical name since they can be traced back to those times.

There are some Middle Eastern names that may be a bit difficult to pronounce and younger family members will probably struggle.
