I was randomly trying to think of the 'most approrpiate' agility names ever- names like Bounce, Zoom, Dash, Zip- but not things like "Oops" or "Uh Oh" (We know an Uhoh who has managed to NQ herself like 12 times in Utility A- she's a lab and she's AWESOME when she's on but when she's not, she's creative....).

Any ideas? My googlefu is failing me. I can't believe there's not a list of these somewhere!

Those are names of just some dogs that do agility. LOL.

More names that relate to speed and such. Hahaha We are bored.

The name Strider does work. I know a BEAGLE of all breeds...that does very well in Agility and he is named Strider. I know cuz I named him LOL.
There was a beagle named Reese that did quite well in obed and agility (as well as confmation) She was sooooo adorable... looked a bit puppish even though she was full grown. She beat Kaiden and I when we were starting out lol. Beagles can be awesome sports dogs.

I've seen a few beagles do excellent in agility, actually. I think they're the only scenthound I've ever seen do very well.

My Strider's trainer trained a basset hound for agility once. Everybody laughed at her. That hound was not fast, but she was very accurate. :)

My next one is Harley... that's just because my dogs are given badass names, though, not necessarily named for the agility ring.
(Yes, Auggie is so very badass. Really.)
