Default Dog training business name??

I have been jotting down possible business names as I think of them for sometime now but almost everything I've come up with is already taken. I'm getting very frustrated.

Some of the unavailable names that I've come up with, and thought I was so clever in thinking of, include:

Endless Pawsibilities
Sit Happens
Opportunity Barks
Dogs Gone Wild
The Refined Canine
DogSkills or PetSkills
and about 50 others....

For those of you in the business of dog training - how did you come up with your business name and did you have a difficult time finding names that didn't already exist? Any tips or suggestions?

What do you think of the name "Get a Cue!".

Thanks for your feedback!

Actually, I'm still in the process....I'm an Animal Behavior College student(should be finished at the end of June) and I've been assisting group classes with a local trainer since last summer.

It will be a little while before I start my own business....I'm just thinking ahead. I want to have a few names in mind before the time comes.

There's another Sit Happens here in Calgary too.

I thought I was totally original..and I was for a while. My company name is Diamond in the "Ruff" Inc. and of course you do a name search at your local registry to be sure that it's available. it's pretty cheap to register your trade name so that you remain the only one within the city/s that you register.
There are a few others now with my name but they're nowhere near me.

By the way...I'm a mentor for ABC. Good Luck!!

A few quick questions...
So I don't really need to search online, I just need to seach the registry?

If I come up with a name that I like and it's available, can I register it right away or do I have to be in business first?

Your best bet is just going to your registry. You can register it and hold onto it for when you need it. You do have to decide what kind of registration you want...ltd. inc. just a simple trade name.

I love some of the names that you've come up with!
