Introduction

The Schipperke is a small, fluffy purebred dog with a nautical breed history.  The breed's name is Flemish for Little Captain or Little Boatman and many owners, Belgium or otherwise, choose the Schipperke for its seafaring honors.  Schipperke owners may also choose to give their little pooch a nautical name to celebrate the dog's breed history or as a representation of their own professions on and near the water.  The options for naming a Schipperke are only limited by the imagination and some owners, rather than name their dog based on its nautical history, choose descriptive names.

Schipperke Dog Name Considerations

The Schipperke is a small, feisty dog with fluffy hair, dark eyes, and ears that stand straight up.  This breed is also missing a tail, which is a unique trait among only a select few dog breeds.  Owners or soon to be owners of Schipperkes will want to consider their dog's size, black color, and other outward appearances when selecting the perfect name.  With all its outward cuteness, the Schipperke has a guard dog personality and can be aggressive towards unwanted vermin and approaching strangers.  The Schipperke's original role was aboard seafaring vessels traveling between Brussels and Antwerp.  They were watchdogs and alerted the crew to anything out of the ordinary and provided vermin control on board.  Schipperke owners, regardless of their own professions or ties to the sea, can consider a name that honors this breed's history of sailing with a nautical name, like Captain, Davey, Tempest, or Catalina.
