Nugget
We used to joke about hippy show kids with dogs with names like Nugget.
At crags we would start calling my partner's dogs Nugget.

Its not funny unless you say it like a lost angry loud hippy with a lost dog.
"HERE NUGGET, WHERE ARE YOU NUGGET?! DAMMIT NUGGET GET OFF THAT ROPE NUGGET! ANYONE SEEN MY NUGGETS?!"

I can't remember the instance, but I think the joke started out based on witnessing some hippy kid and his dog nugget (that he was screaming for all day).

Hey Mozeman;

They're "Brittanies" (if that's the plural of "Brittany").

And, yeah, they're pretty good little dogs--a buddy hunts over 'em, and he does pretty well.
But, I'll stick with my Labs for now! His Brittanies do better in the heat, and the Labs do better in the cold.

I beg to differ that it is "Brittanies", because the term was short for Briattany Spaniels, the first term "Brittany" would not change. That is at least what it seems to be. Any readings regarding the breed refer to them as "Brittanys" not "Brittanies"..................ok done trolling for now

Naming your dog anything climbing related is probably the dumbest thing you could do for a dog. Get some creativity. Blake Cash

Not climbing related, but 'Askum'

Whenever someone says 'whats your dogs name?' You reply with 'Askum'

Moose is a cool dog name, but your dog can't have it because mine already does ... and he is way cooler than your future dog will ever be.

Bolt after the super hero dog movie of the same name. For sport climbers. Just realized that 'clip that bolt' would have two meanings.

Bitey just to let everyone know what he might do.

When I was a kid I had a paper route and delivered papers on my bike every morning with my dobie - rott mix named Oscar. There was this freakin MEAN German Shepherd that would attack me and my dog almost daily. I tried maceing the damn thing and it only pissed him off more. His name was Damit. I can still hear in my mind the owners calling " Damit! get over here", "Damit, you're in trouble now", "Damit, I'm gonna beat you a$$", Damit, dont make me come out there". ---- priceless!

No. The dog is NOT a "people. No matter what you think. That's why no people names. For YOUR benefit.

Spaniel was dropped due to the fact that it inferes a water breed or a flusher. Brittanys are a pointing breed hence the dropping of the spaniel term. Whatever, they are energetic, funny as hell and have a huge personality. I wouldn't be without one or two around.

Not quite. Its just that the dog only really hears one syllable, so make it count. You should avoid sounds that are difficult to say loudly. Basically, any voiced consonants (e.g. v, d, b) are not good consonants to start the name with. Ideally, something that starts with a short vowel sound. Better still, short o or a, so Alaska is better than Elliot.

My dog is named Otso, after the Finnish bear spirit. It fits him. Put some thought into it, come up with a list of good names that are easy to shout, and then find the one that fits your dog best.
