Pointer Dog Name Considerations

When considering the type of name you ought to give your dog, it is best to focus on personality and appearance. Is your dog curious and bold, or mellow and observant? What color is his coat? A dog with a red-brown coat might make the perfect Copper, while a dog with a laid-back, loyal personality would be an excellent Atlas. It is often important to consider personality and appearance simultaneously. After all, a dog that’s mellow and regal in personality might make a great Opal, but the name makes less sense when her dark brown appearance is considered.

When coming up with a list of names, you might also consider your dog’s favorite activities. Dogs that love the outdoors or chasing after small animals would be great candidates for names like Fetch, Fox, Reed, and Arrow. Dogs that prefer the indoors, cuddling in their favorite bed, or snuggling you on the couch, might make for a good Sheba, Penny, or Heidi. Focus on your dog and let the name come to you naturally. Remember, no one knows your Pointer quite like you do!
