Introduction

The Gordon Setter is an elegant, sophisticated black and tan sporting dog that originated in Scotland by the fourth Duke of Gordon. The Gordon Setter is the most muscled and heaviest of the Setter breeds and their job is to find and point to game birds, and they work very methodically when in the field. They also make excellent family dogs for active families. These dogs are usually mild-mannered and easy to train, but they are also high energy and require a significant amount of one-on-one time to be content. They excel in dog sports such as tracking, obedience, agility, or rally. They can be reserved toward strangers, so if you are not an experienced dog handler you will want to start with a puppy rather than an adult Gordon Setter.

Gordon Setter Dog Name Considerations

When you decide to add a Gordon Setter to your family and have done your due diligence by finding a reputable breeder that stands behind their puppies, it is time to find a name that will fit your newest family member. Most people search for names that are short and easy to pronounce for the entire family. Being a Scottish breed, some people even look for names with Scottish roots. Names should be relatively short, one to two syllables and should not sound like any name of a family member or close friend to avoid confusion for your dog. You also want to make sure your dog is not given the same name as your neighbor’s dog; this could cause great confusion when out walking or even just playing in the backyard! Avoid any names that sound similar to the training commands you will be using. This will avoid any confusion for you and your puppy. Take the time to get to know your new bundle of fur and learn about their personality. You do not want to saddle them with a name that really does not fit them. Have fun when choosing a name and make sure everyone in the family is on board with the name you have chosen. Naming a puppy Stinky because of a few accidents in the house may not be the best choice since they will carry this name for the rest of their life!
