Top 10 Food Inspired Dog Names

Book Dog Walk


Food is a basic necessity in our lives. It's recommended we eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and over the years, it has become something much more than a need. Thanks to all the different kinds and varieties of cuisine out there, it has become a want for many of us. No wonder we want it so much, it has so many uses. It helps us when we're sad or depressed, we can impress people with special recipes, or even a romantic evening with a loved one.

For many of us, that loved one is our favorite pup, who would loyally accompany us on any food adventure we desire. Our dogs, with their happy and joyous personalities, always put a smile on our face and they are always there for us, just waiting for a crumb to fall. From dog-friendly restaurants, to picnics at the park, to a quiet dinner at home, our dogs are food connoisseurs who would never turn up their nose at any offering.

So it's no wonder that we would want to combine the two things, and give a unique food name to our favorite foodie pooch. Giving a dog the name of a food may sound silly, but some of the top food names really do fit, so Bone Appetit!
