It's a name that's as rich, warm, and comforting as a mug of hot cocoa on a cold day. Plus, it's a fun way to pay homage to pop culture icons like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Just remember, while your dog may be named Chocolate, actual chocolate is a no-no for dogs! So, keep those Hershey's kisses to yourself, alright?
