  1. I first posted this in 2010 . . . :)

    Koda was our first choice name for Daughtry then within weeks there were about 5 Koda or Kodahs on the forum so we changed her name to daughtry (after the awesome american rock band)

    but in 2010 I asked the question. . . . .


    Sooooo. . . .

    How did you name your Huskies. .(or any pet for that matter) ??

    We have had cats and other dogs before getting Koda

    And we’ve always gone through a torturous process in finding suitable names.

    We always start off by getting each member of the family to write down as many names as they

    can come up with, fun/cute /silly/absurd/normal or just plain boring all are considered.

    We try to take in to account any striking physical markings or differences.

    We then combine all the lists and give each family member a copy of the master list.

    Each person then has to choose thier top 5 names.

    We then combine the top 5’s and go around again until we have whittled several hundred

    names down to 5 that we all sort of like. . . .

    Now we get to the SHOUTY phase. . .lol

    We shout the names as if calling our dogs from a distance to see how they sound. . .coz. . .

    When your dog manages to get away from you and is barrelling across the park with the

    intention of inserting something physically into another dog, nose or. . .erm. . other bits. . . . or.

    . .deciding that , that teacup Yorkshire terrier is the ugliest cat its ever seen and well. . .it just

    has to be eaten.

    You are gonna start bellowing its name to get it to come back, stop or otherwise distract it.

    It’s at this point that “Veridian Gargoyle Saccharine Snugglebunnies” sounds utterly stupid as

    you leg it after your dog screaming THAT at the top of your lungs.

    Or if you have given it what you consider to be a suitable name for your so cute puppy. .

    .remember when half a ton of Rottwieler is going like a frieght train away from you, and you are

    shouting “Peanut!!!! come back Peanut”

    Many really great names have been discarded at the Shouty phase.

    So we are now down to a couple of names and we just start saying thenmto get a feel, does the

    dog respond, am I comfortable with the name?

    At this point we end up throwing the whole lot out because one of us says a name randomly

    out of the blue that everone just lights up and goes. . .”Oooooh yeah”

    Such was the case with both Echo and Koda.

    LOL. . .

    So how do you name your dogs. . . .

  2. i have a 6ft police lead on my walking belt for the streets and a 50ft lunging line for the big fields so Darwin can "roam"

    I have the lunging line on my walking belt too so that if darwin gets a run up from 50ft behind to 50ft in front he isn't going to dislocate my shoulder or wrist

    as he hits the end at full speed.
