Anything with at least 2 sylables, and it is a requirement that it "hollers" good.

This also works well for namin` boy chilluns!

Some are named after guns or something simular. Remington, Gunner, Muzzy, Magnum, Beretta or Hunter...

Stay away from names that are close to commands as this will confuse the dog. ex. Bo is too close to no or whoa.

People I got my lab from were calling him Bo, had them stop and start calling him Sam when I picked him out at 3 weeks old.

I had a field trial lab that was fast as greased lightning. His call name was "Jet"...full name was "Flint River's Jet Black Attack"...thought that was kinda neat.

I agree with others, name him a one sylable name and nothing that remotely sounds like any command you are likely to use.

No kidding: My first cousin had a dog he named "******************"...he thought it was cute until he got loose at the beach one day and he had to chase him down....true story.

the name should be one sylable...not 2. (for ease of calling in the field) I own Gus, Jill, Hope, Nell, and Rose....one sylable is MUCH easier to have to repeat than 2 or more.

My two Llewellins are Chipper and Andruw. That's "Chip" and "Druw" in the field.

I don't think "Sam" would work too well, when you think about it being too close to a command or whatever.

Reminds me of the Havilah Babcock story about the dog who thought his name was a commonly used term that would normally provoke fisticuffs when used between humans. A problem arose when a minister hunted with Babcock and his friend, who both used the dog's name freely. At a break, the minister asked just exactly what the dog's name was, and how it had come to be. The friend replied that the dog's daddy was named Bishop, so they had named the dog Son-of-Bishop in honor of the father.

My labs name is Hunter, short for Rocky Top's Slim Chance for Hunter. While in the field his name is Boo (nickname). He is smart enough to know both of them.

My next one will be named Buck.

I once had an English Setter named Rhrett (Rhett Buttler). What a hunter he was. Before I got married she told me that eather the dog goes or she goes. Biggest mistake of my life I kept her.

I once named an old yard dog "Joe Budd" after a WMA down in Florida where I found him abandoned as a puppy.

I got a lab mix from the pound and although I never used him as a bird dog, he was probably one of the best dogs that I have ever owned. We named him CuJo. You should have seen the looks we got when we told people his name. The vet's office was probably the worst. Whenever we went in, there seemed to someone new and they couldn't understand why we would name our dog that. We then informed them that he wasn't named after the St. Bernard, but after a hockey player!

My male is named "Berettas True North Murdock". He answers to "Doc"

I put a lot of thought in his name. I compare him to a compass. We use a compass to point us to a destination. Doc points my Beretta in the right direction,,,,,,,most of the time

Very pretty dog you have my friend. I like to keep it simple also, Jack, Gabby,& Missy are my dogs names. Worked Jack today. He is hunting real well, just needs some "yard work" as the a trainer told me. He needs work on heel and woah, but last week he did great.

my black labs name is Miss Grits, we call her Grits, hence the reason for my screen name, she was a great dog before I left to come over here to Afghanistan, now I think she is a bonified house dog, talked to my wife tonight and they were laying together eating popcorn watching tv hopefully I'll get a good pup out of her when I get home, and start the training over, maybe she has some hope left, but it's been almost two years and when I came home last time she was right at my wifes side and wasn't interested in hearing what I had to say.
