How It All Started!

When adopting our yellow lab puppy we needed to come up with a great name. We looked all over the web and could only find A to Z lists that were painful to look through.

Kyle decided he could build something better as a web designer and developer. So he created My Dog’s Name, a site for searching for dog names by category and style.

We then branched out into creating a cat name site and now a site for all kinds of other purposes!
