Whats in a name

Hello to everyone. I'm new to forums so you may have to bare with me. Anyways, I am picking up my pup this weekend, and extremely excited to do so, and need some name suggestions. She's blk/tan and I will definitely show in obedience and leaning heavily to schutzhund as well. But I cannot for the life of me decide on a name. This is pretty bad since I manage and am an obedience instructor at a boarding/grooming/training kennel and have seen and worked with thousands of dogs. I have a couple ideas but don't want to say them because I want new ideas. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

PS: I have for weeks now been navigating this site and have received some valuable information so thank you to it's members.

I was going to name mine Rayvne if I was getting a black and rust, but I ended up getting a fawn and rust and named her Maui. I had the name picked out before I got her and I can't imagine any other name for her now.

That is a cool name but one of my employees name is Raven so she might not appreciate that. There is an Isabella male in the litter. He's pretty but I really like the female I'm thinking of choosing. Had plenty of choices though. It was a rainbow litter with 13 pups! Picking up tomorrow and the suspense is killing me.

Thanks for looking out for me. The bitch actually belongs to a client of mine and the sire is a conformation/obedience champion out of California. She is one of the nicest females I've seen and trained. One thing I really like about her is that she is big boned for a female and produced some great pups with big bones and cobby litlle bodies. I'm a big dog kinda guy. I currently have a retired conf/obed Amstaff. And then the boss of the house, our yorkie. Hey he's big at heart!

I strongly agree on doing my homework which I have. The greatest thing about the situation is I get pick pup as trade for training the male that they are keeping. There was an all breed show in town over labor day and we had two judges and two handlers look at the litter and they were very impressed. Now I'm counting down the hours!

The ears will be done at a local vet that does a phenomenal job with dobes, amstaffs, danes, boxers, etc. She used to show amstaffs as well.

Thanks he is quite handsome

I am excited for you, is your breeder cropping her ears for you? If not that is a sign that the breeder is not an ethical one that does not do exclusive health testing. Which in the long run can possible leave you in heartache.

If it is an ethical breeder than yay.

Just thought I would like to warn you because I to came onto this site before I was going to pick up my puppy and this forum informed me that I was not buying from an ethical breeder and in fact a BYB. It was my first time buying from a breeder and did not know what I was doing.

They informed me about the difference between the two and I made the responsible decisions to back out of getting the BYB puppy and surprisingly I got my deposit back, but I was ready and willing to not get my deposit back.

As much as I wanted to pick up the boy that I picked out I waited and found an ethical breeder and I tell you what it was a HUGE difference in quality and temperament.

If you are set on your decision then good luck to you and hope your girl lives a long healthy and happy life, I am just trying to pay it forward with what I was taught about the difference between BYB and ethical breeder.

Thats so awesome : ) I can't wait to see pics. We have had a lot of people getting her lately getting puppies from byb and asking for advice then not taking it. Can't wait to see what you decide to name her. How many more days?
Tomorrow! I like Zara and it fits what I know of her. If it fits once she's home then it stays. If not....
Well WE'RE HOME!!! Chopper (amstaff) and Ollie (yorkie) love new pup and she loves them. Especially Ollie being that he's the first thing smaller than her that she's encountered.

A little whining (not sure why her world just changed) but doing great. Played a while then spent an hour in crate with very little whining at first, went out and pottied, now back in and asleep. YEY!! She's set the bar high so hopefully this good behavior continues as far as crating goes.

Look forward to the morning to see how she's done overnight, fingers crossed. That is if we sleep through the night, fingers recrossed. Guess we will see.

Oh and it is Zara. Will post picks ASAP!
LOL no pics? those pics better be up asap ;)
I know I know! I have to get them transferred to computer and will tomorrow to show her off. She's a joy already. Again she's set the bar pretty high for herself.

I was at the breeders all day. It was between her and another female but it didn't take long to decide. The others a little longer bodied. Although the isabella male is georgious but I really wanted a female, and they are keeping a male and have a blk, red, and him and don't know which one they're keeping yet so won't let any go. Lol. I hope they keep the red because he may be one of the nicest and well-rounded pups I've ever seen. I think they are as they've already named him.
