Have a new pup coming soon and came up with this name
Firestorms Kona with Lime call name "Salt"
What do you think?

Salt seems pretty close to "Sit". Personally, I'd stray from any name that could be misunderstood or misinterpreted for a command.

Thought of that but tried on my others and no confusion. Also not any worse than the Drake name if someone hunts and a Drake comes in and says Drake, it could release the dog named Drake.

Let's say you do your drinks on the dangerous side, instead of Salt you use... Salt Peter...

Or "Sodium Nitrate"

Or call sign "Nitro"....

Live dangerous~! :)

Great reason not to name a dog Drake (or Rooster). ;)

my immediate reaction was that "salt" sounds too close to "sit", too.

If that has significance to you it is very cool!



How about "Salty" for a call name.
Not too long and wouldn't be confused with a command.

If I can train to leave chickens alone but still tear up on game birds I don't think there will be concussion.
Besides "tweet" sounds nothing like salt. LOL

I have a dog named drake when a drake or any duck for that matter comes in we yell Kill em :p. I think if we tried to say something longer than that like oh theres a drake mallard, it be gone!

I'm a big fan of two syllable names that end in a vowel sound. You can hang that "y" sound out there when you are praising the critter and get lots of waggin'. Salty works.

I wouldn't worry about "Salt" and "sit" being confused. "Sassy" and "Sit" didn't perplex the new pup at all. The vowel sound is different enough not to be a problem. I know that some trainers really emphasized the "S" sound on the "SSSSSit" but we didn't...all is well.

Being a Chef I think "Salt" a great name . Its one ingredient you really can't do without . I'm sure thats how you feel about the dog .
