Hunting for Names

Hunting dogs make the perfect hunting companion, especially if you usually go into the woods alone!

Not only will they offer you some protection aside from your hunting equipment, but they will also help you get the job done faster!

Breeds of Hunting Dogs

When it comes to choosing the right hunting dog for you, you will first need to decide what you need it for. Hunting dogs are typically good at three things, but usually not all three: Scent, sight, and tracking. Individual talents will depend on the dog and how much you work with them, even if many of the breeds were bred specifically for the purpose; after all, humans are made to walk, but we have to learn how to first! Practice is everything.

When it comes to the breeds of hunting dogs, they generally fall into four types:

  • Hounds: American Foxhound, Beagles, Basset Hound, Bloodhounds, Coonhounds, Daschunds, Irish Wolfhound. Great for scent and sight!
  • Feists: Treeing Feist, Charlie Feist, Denmark Feist, Mountain Feist, Kemmer Feist, Thornbug Feist. Perfect for hunting small game such as rabbits and squirrels.
  • Gun Dogs: Pointers, Retrievers, Setters, Spaniels, and Water Dogs (such as Poodles). These dogs are particularly useful in helping hunters to retrieve their game, often birds or waterfowl.
  • Terriers: Originally bred for hunting vermin, this energetic group of hunting dogs includes the Airedale Terrier, Bull Terrier, Irish Terrier, Schnauzers, Rat Terrier, Fox Terriers, and Welsh Terrier.

Keep in mind that these are listed in no particular order and all groups include many more breeds than what I have listed; I just tried to list the most common types. If you are considering getting yourself a hunting dog, a great place to look first is your local animal shelters. Not only can you save a dog from getting needlessly euthanized, but you might just find the exact breed you’re looking for! Or even one that you didn’t quite expect to steal your heart!

Choosing the Right Name

Picking through hunting dog names might just be one of the most memorable moments of the beginning of your relationship with your dog. Although hunting dog names are abundant, not all of the hunting dog names are suitable for every hunting dog! Each dog has their very own personalities, so it’s up to you to choose the most suitable ones you can find.

If you are having a hard time picking through a few good ones, which will likely be the case, let them help you pick their own name! I had a dog one time as a child where we were in this situation; we just couldn’t settle on a name.

Although dogs obviously can’t read, this certainly helped to settle our dilemma. All we did was write a few names on different notecards, placed a piece of food on each one, and let the dog into the room! It was quite fun watching him go from card to card, sniffing all the food and the very first one he decided to eat was the name that he “chose” which so happened to be Fat Boy.

It is memories like this that will stick a lifetime, and make for great stories to tell later on when you are reflecting on your old companion from way back when! Involving them in the naming process is only fair; after all, it’s their name!
