Preppy Dog Names (and Breeds)


The naming of the new dog is always an interesting group activity for a family.  Here are a handful of dog names (with their breeds):
  • Scout (English Setter)
  • Yankee (Irish Setter)
  • Tug (Yellow Lab)
  • Tiller (Golden Retriever)
  • Sport (English Setter)
  • Salty (Yellow Lab)
  • Schooner (Golden Retriever)
  • Bear (Black Lab)
  • Buck (Golden Retriever)
  • Skipper (Chocolate Lab)
  • Scupper
Additional sources from which names are drawn include favorite coastal  towns, dorm names, authors, political leaders, and ancestors (perhaps already covered in the first four).
