Why the name Alaskan Noble Companion Dog ?
Alaskan: to get the idea across that this is a northern-looking breed (not place of origin).
Noble: because they have noble/regal appearance.
Companion: because that is what they are. In addition, there is another play on words that working dog people will recognize, and that is: When you abbreviate the breed name ANCD or Alaskan Noble CD, the last 2 letters are the abbreviation the AKC uses for it's first formal obedience title, AKC CD (Companion Dog).
