Tough Military Dog Names for Your Fearless Pup

Dogs have been used in warfare since 600 B.C. Today, they are assigned special tasks such as patrol, explosives detection, or guarding.

Their heightened sense of olfaction and ability to see in low light are extremely useful and provide an advantage in combat.

Due to their comparatively small size, they can reach places and traverse tunnels that would otherwise be inaccessible. There are 5 main breeds that are used for military duties and roles.

German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, Doberman Pinschers, Farm Collies (short coat), and Giant Schnauzers are preferred military dog breeds because they are athletic, intelligent, easily trainable, and aggressive.

Especially German Shepherds have a unique set of traits including adaptivity to climates, dependability, predictability, and trainability and are more suited for this work than any other breed.

Hunting dogs, in general, are rejected because of their prey drive and giant breeds like the Great Dane are not easily trainable and just too large for this type of work.

So if you are looking for a tough, badass military name that fits your German Shepherd or Malinois, the following list will definitely provide you with some unique inspirations.

Badass Hunting Dog Names

Retrievers, Pointers, Hounds, Spaniels, Setters, and Terriers are not part of the working group but they share a very unique bond with their handler.

They not only work together but actively communicate through body language on the field.

If you have chosen a hunting dog to be your life long companion, you are probably searching for a name that reflects his curiosity and willingness to work with you in water as well as on land.

Animal or nature themed names are amazing choices for hunting dogs but you could also opt for gun inspired names such as Gunner or Magnum.

To provide your with the best hunting dog names, I have created a whole article about 200+ Hunting Dog Names for 2020 with Meaning. Check them out and see what fits your puppy best.

My personal favorites are the ones that will always remind you of the beautiful landscape and nature like Meadow, Aurora, or Algon.

Sled Dog Names for Your Husky, Alaskan Malamute or Samoyed

Sled dogs are probably the most robust and enduring dogs of all the different working group types. Dog sledding originated in Siberia and has been around since 2,000 B.C. where it was used as a way of travelling.

The Husky and Alaskan Malamute were typically used for this task but there are many more breeds like the Alaskan Husky, Samoyed, and Canadian Eskimo Dog that have played an important role in the sledding history.

Even dog breeds that are not part of the sledding group have been used as such including the Poodle, Labrador Retriever and St. Bernard.

When choosing a fitting name for your Malamute or Husky puppy, think about the snowy mountains and icy landscapes of Alaska and how your pup’s ancestors were racing over frozen lakes and untravellable land.

Whether you are actually living in Noma or way more south in warmer climates, your dog will always have a part of Alaska in himself.
