My poor dogs. They don't have a team name or a theme song.
We use them in disc and I know they are popular with dock diving, but that's the only two places I have heard of team names being used.

Yep, I think Dock Diving is where the team names really started. They are starting to creep into agility but it seems like it's mostly because people want something cool to embroider on their lawn chairs hahaha.

I wanted something that incorporated the history of the breed. And well Coach is used so many ways. I went with a different way. Although I have yet to use it on a dog. Hopefully this ! summer ! though!

It's not uncommon in mushing, either.

Mine's more just a name I incorporate in all their registered names to tie them together on paper. It'll likely be used as part of Mira's litter's registered names as well if all goes well. I've never heard of team names in agility unless someone uses their kennel name to refer to their dogs as a whole (even those who aren't technically of the same breeding or even breed). Kind of like how I refer to my dogs en masse as the ShaiCrew. It's just an informal moniker.

Tully's registered name was "DayDream London Calling", which meant that Tess' registered name clearly had to be "London's Burning", but with DayDream in there too, that left me only 5 spaces for my own kennel name. Which also had to not sound stupid with "DayDream". So, Flyin DayDream Londons Burning. "Flyin" was for my first Stafford, Elmo, who I adopted as a rescue/rehome.

For training, I picked Red Fox Dog Training, for obvious reasons LOL.

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!
