Introduction

Also known as a French Mastiff, the Dogue de Bordeaux is considered one of the oldest French dog breeds. “Douge” means Mastiff in French, hence the name. This breed can easily be identified through its huge head and thickset build. Because of its stocky body and impressive strength, the breed was formerly used for numerous tasks such as towing heavy items, pulling carts and even guarding castles. Nowadays, however, the Dogue de Bordeaux has become a prime pet choice. This is because of their relentless loyalty and devotion to its owner and its family. They also possess a gentle attitude, especially around children. This is why the Dogue de Bordeaux will make for a superb watch dog or household pet.

Dogue de Bordeaux Dog Name Considerations

Being an extraordinary breed, the Dogue de Bordeaux deserves to be christened with a name that will match its distinctiveness. Normally, new dog owners like to keep it simple by choosing short, memorable names. This is quite helpful since dogs are only likely to remember the first syllable of any word. Therefore, it makes sense to choose a name that is short and can be remembered without much effort.

Another great idea for naming your new Dogue de Bordeaux is to choose a French name. For one, this breed is native to France. Giving your dog a French name will definitely add flair to its already special personality. Also, there’s something about the French language that sound really sophisticated and majestic, don’t you agree? With its country of origin, a French name for your Dogue de Bordeaux is a great way to retain the novelty.

You can also take your dog’s exterior and interior qualities. This covers everything from color of the coat, markings (if any) and size (the Dogue de Bordeaux a huge breed!) to personality, behavior and even certain idiosyncrasies that your dog may possess. For instance, if your dog’s coat is red in color, you can give it the name “Copper”, which is a kind of reddish metal.
