most all my dogs have thought their name was "No" so I'm not too good at picking names. Good luck with the new pup, we've got a new english setter pup named molly. Shes about 14weeks now and quite a handful.
I agree with this. I bought my chocolate lab female when she was 10 months old from a field trial trainer. Of course he had long since named her, calling her Faith. I find that name doesn't sound like any discipline commands your pup should be learning ASAP. I figure I'm also unlikely to run into another dog in the field with that name.
I wanted to name my chocolate female faith, but the wife was not wild about it. My intention was to find a one syllable name. When that didn't work, we went with Lily. Still short and sounds nothing like any commands that she is given.
