Introduction

The English Shepherd is a working dog that belongs to the Collie family. This particular dog can be considered a "Made in America" dog. The breed descends from Scottish and English farm dogs brought to America between the eighteenth and nineteenth century. This dog can be described as quite versatile; they are working dogs on farms and ranches. They also hunt for vermin in addition to guarding the homestead. These pooches are extremely intelligent and loyal to their families. However, the English Shepherd can be very independent, which can be challenging for their owners. To prevent mischief, this breed should receive ample activity, such as playing fetch.

English Shepherd Dog Name Considerations

The English Shepherd is a sweet and lovable dog. They are also protective of their family members as well as very active. The English Shepherd will enjoy spending time indoors with you at night, but, during the day, the dog is happiest out among the farm animals, running and herding them on the property. It is because of these characteristics that the English Shepherd should be given names that mean loyal, kind or have to do with a hard-working individual. Names such as this include Dillon for a male and Shelby for a female. 

The English Shepherd is also highly independent. Alex, Billy, and Kai all have meanings related to independent characteristics. For females, Bess and Belle are suitable names for your English Shepherd. The English Shepherd is a working dog, and they are tireless. Abby and Amelia are great names for the hardworking English Shepherd female. For males, Darren is a great way of depicting the working nature of the English Shepherd. 

Of course, you might rather choose a common dog name for your English Shepherd such as Max or Sam. Names such as this make training much easier for the hardworking English Shepherd.
