Country Dog Names in Pop Culture
Homeward Bound is the story of Chance, an aloof American Bulldog, Shadow, a mature and wise Golden Retriever, and Sassy, an opinionated Himalayan cat. They are forced to work together when they are left in the care of a family friend. Due to a mix up, the pets are left alone for a period of time and assume that they have been abandoned. Determined to find their owners, they embark on a trek which takes them into the rock mountain wilderness of the Sierra Nevada's. Their trip is full of action and events and is well worth watching. But my point is that dogs (and cats) are amazing creatures who seem possible of negotiating a trail through the country to find someone, regardless of time or distance.
Chance and Shadow are great names for a country dog, and this movie includes some amazing scenery and additional characters that may give you an idea for a name. The movie won high reviews, so relax and enjoy; maybe you will be inspired and a name for your new family member will leap out at you. Chance, the reluctant hero, was played by a dog named Rattler, which is another perfect name for a country dog. Shadow was played by a dog called Ben, a simple, easy to say name that suits a wise stoic pooch.
Dogs often have supporting roles in movies, but are often the scene stealers in film as everyone focuses on the cute puppy instead of the human actor. Consider names such as Baxter (from Anchorman) played by a dog named Peanuts, another awesome name. Enzo and Moose, from Back to the Future are fitting names for a pooch who enjoys the country air.. You could also include Toto from The Wizard of Oz - after all, Toto had to navigate a fair bit of country, albeit in a weird land. So take heart when searching for a name for your dog. It could be as easy as curling up with your new pal to watch a movie that will inspire a name!
Country Dog Name Considerations
Things to consider when naming a pet include choosing a name that you really like (obvious but worth pointing out ), don't just go with a whim. Pick an easy one or two syllable name which is easier for your dog to understand. And don't choose a name that sounds like a command; for example, Fletch sounds too much like fetch. Don't go for a popular dog name unless you really do love it. Remember you will be out in public with your pooch, and when you yell out 'Buddy, come here!' you may find yourself with four or more Buddies! Another thing to consider is a name that other people may find offensive. When choosing a name, consider how it will be used and how you feel about saying out loud in public. Always do your research first, even if it means your dog hasn't got a name for a day or two. Taking the right time and finding the perfect name will pay off in the long run. When brainstorming a name based on a country theme, consider what it is that really draws you to the space. It is the Willow trees in the field or the rushing brook? Does the color of your new pet remind you of the wheat fields or the flowers in the meadow? The country theme offers plenty of ideas when considering a name for your new addition.
