Introduction

Cowboys are the original superheroes. However, instead of superpowers, they had integrity, spunk and true grit. They were known to get down and roll in the mud to get the bad guys. Or maybe they were the bad guys. Either way, does rolling around in the mud sound like something a dog would do? It's a good thing there is a lot to draw from when naming your dog something straight out of the cowpoke genre. Saddle up and get your spurs on folks because it is almost high noon and you know that means, it is time to giddyup! Yee-haw!

Cowpoke Dog Name Considerations

As with any theme for naming your dog, you should choose something you really care about. If you do not like westerns, perhaps you should go another route. However, if you love westerns then there are so many names to pull from this theme. Shows like Gunsmoke and Bonanza are rich with names and ideas, while a movie like The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly has an all-star cast of names to choose from. Clint Eastwood has remained a star even after the age of spaghetti westerns and Clint is an ideal dog name.

For naming your dog, you want to keep it simple. Too many syllables and you lose your dog's attention. If you choose a name like Doc Holliday, consider going with "Doc". You can choose a unique name that is quick and to the point. Colt is a popular name because it is both a gun and a young horse. Both are super fast, but the horse is definitely a better ride. Make sure it is something a dog will respond to and learn their name. A unique name is great, but not if your dog won't listen to it. One or two syllables is all that is necessary.
