Are you one of the many dog-crazy Montanans?  It seems that we love our four-legged friends here in Big Sky Country, and many of us take them with us almost everywhere we go.

I mean, let's be honest here, Montana is a dog paradise.  With millions of acres to roam and all kinds of trails to sniff and critters to chase, if I was a dog, I'd want to live here.

Plus, all across the state, there are places that are dog friendly, from huge dog parks to retail stores and restaurants, if you've spent any time here in Montana, you've no doubt seen a dog somewhere that a dog might not normally be.

Of course, one of the most important things you can do as a dog owner is make sure that your furry friend has the right name. You want to make sure that the name will fit the dog's personality, or maybe you want to go with something unique so that if you're at a dog park and you call out the pup's name, 15 other dogs don't come running to you.
