Report Going to have her evaluated in Training Discussion Posted February 17, 2012 Around here, we belong to the " names (for BCs) that are single syllable and end in a hard sound (Mac, Kate, etc) and are a little off-beat," camp. When DH was young and learning to train dogs, his trainer advised him to never give a bitch a woman's name because that might also be the name of your future mother-in-law! Our new pup came with the name "George" which none of us liked and he didn't respond well to it anyway. Since his puppy coat was a very dark brown, he got named "Chip" which is short for Chocolate Chip. As he developed, he became keen on chasing chipmunks, eating ice chips and he's definitely a chip off the old block. The name seemed to fit. As long as the dog learns to respond to her name, it's really irrelevant what it is.
