Normally, naming a dog requires a cute name that perhaps holds special meaning, fits the dog's personality or simply sounds good. But choosing the right name for a show dog takes a little more consideration. Follow the rules. Your dog's name should contain the name of the kennel from where she came. Most of the time it's the first part of the name. For example, if your dog came from Green Hills Farm Kennel, you could name your dog "Green's King Midas". If your dog comes from multiple breeders, be sure to use a little of each name. Yes, this can lead to some really long names.
