Introduction

People have been fighting fire throughout history; the first firefighting teams in ancient Rome were composed of a line of people passing buckets to one another from the nearest water source to the structure that was burning. The first fire hose wasn’t developed until the late 1600s, and they didn’t become particularly effective until the early 1800s when metal rivets were used to hold the material together. Fire brigades began utilizing horses and carriages to transport the water and hoses, and they employed dogs to run alongside the carriage to help protect the horses and the occupants. When firetrucks came on the scene the sight of the firedog was so expected that they continued riding with the firemen and providing assistance, and they continue doing so even today.

Firehouse Dog Name Considerations

There are several methods that people can use to choose a name for a new canine companion. Some individuals consider a name based on a favorite book, movie, or television show, while others will select one that honors someone they admire, either the name of someone that they know personally or someone that is known for their expertise in a specific field, like an artist who names their pooch Vincent, after Vincent van Gogh or the architect who calls their dog Frank, after Frank Lloyd Wright. If you plan to indoctrinate your dog into a specific career field, the career that you choose can inspire you as well. Owners of dogs that are slated to become firehouse assistants have a wide base of titles to choose from, including the names of famous firedogs, like Bush, a firehouse dog that worked at the Old Vigilant Firehouse in Washington DC in the late 1800s, or Sparkie, a heroic firedog that was employed by the Central Frisco Fire Department in the 1980s. Another option is to give the canine a moniker related to the history of firefighting, such as Marcus, after Marcus Licinius Crassus, who was the first person to organize a fire brigade in Ancient Rome, or Molly, after the first recorded female firefighter in 1818, Molly Williams. You can also consider a handle related to fire, like Aiden, Serafina, Inferno, or Edana.
