Black Lab Dog Names
Names for your Black Labrador Retriever Dog

Black Lab dog names can be just about anything, but there are a few that seem ideally suited for this most popular of all dog breeds. This smart, loving, easily trainable and always happy breed deserves some special consideration.

One of my three current dogs is a chocolate Labrador Retriever named Bailey. She has been one of the best dogs I have ever owned and Bailey is the perfect name for her.

“The neighbors” who live next door (my sister and her family) have two Black Labs. From among 1,000s of possible dog names, they picked Mollie and Buck.

Mollie is a lively, energetic dog with endless engergy and the unquenchable desire to retrieve – anything! Buck just likes to love his family. Woof!

Perfectly suited for hunting, these gun dogs often have one syllable dog names. My dad’s college room mate has raised Labs for most of his adult life.

Black Lab PuppyMy two favorite of his Black Lab dog names were Rat and Tuff. These are perfect hunting dog names as they are easy to say, one syllable in form, and ideal for issuing voice commands.
