Classic male dog names

Like khaki slacks or the well-tailored suit, these classic names don’t go out of style, fit any male dog, and will never provoke a “huh?” at the vet’s office or dog park. They’re distinctively dog–you won’t see people turning around when you call them–and they’ve served generations of dogs well. If you go for people names like Christopher, James, and Peter, check out these classic dog names.
