Introduction

One of the most ancient dog breeds in the world, Catalan Sheepdogs were introduced by the Romans during 200 to 100 BC, when the dogs marched across the Iberian Peninsula to watch over livestock. Also known as the Gos d’Atura in its native country, the Catalan Sheepdog is a lively and friendly dog originating from the Catalonia region of Spain. Because of their loyalty and bravery, it was not long before the breed became beloved in Spain. However, after World War II, their numbers started to dwindle. Thanks to the efforts of several enthusiasts of the breed, the Catalan Shepherds where put through special breeding programs to save their kind. At present, the Catalan Sheepdogs are still quite rare, although their numbers are continuing to grow. No longer just a herding dog, this lovely breed is also a prime choice for a home pet and companion.

Catalan Sheepdog Dog Name Considerations

Naming your new dog can be both an exciting and daunting task. On one hand, you have all the power to choose your dog’s new and permanent name. On the other hand, there are just so many options available and you can easily get overwhelmed. Since you want your dog’s name to be fitting and special, you need to take a few things into consideration.

For a breed as rare as a Catalan Sheepdog, a common and average dog name will not do the trick. In fact, it is natural for you to want a name that is as equally special and exclusive as your dog. One of the most unique ways to choose a name for your Catalan Sheepdog is to use their country of origin as a basis. Giving your dog a meaningful Catalan name or anything related to Catalonia’s culture will help retain the breed’s novelty.

If you want to make things a bit simpler, you may also choose a name that reflects the many qualities of your new pooch. Catalan Sheepdogs are known for their long and fringey coat, strong heads and jaw and a muscular build. They also come in a variety of coat colors, specifically fawn, sable, grey and black and tan. By using any of these as inspiration, you will surely be able to come up with a name for your dog.
