Google gives us this!
The name is said to derive from Sirius, the "Dog Star", on the claim that Sirius
the first star to come into view on the first dog watch.[1] In fact, however,
the time of the rising of Sirius varies with the time of year, so that for six
months of the year it is below the horizon at sunset. Moreover, the first dog
watch (1600–1800) is typically in daylight, and the stars are not visible. An
alternative folk etymology is that the name comes from the fact that someone
tasked with one of these 'half' watches was said to be 'dodging the watch',
taking or standing the 'dodge watch'. This became shortened to 'dog watch'.
Another variation is that those sleeping get only 'dog sleep' in this watch.
