My puppy's name is Amaya.

わたしのこいぬなまえはあまやちゃん

I could be wrong, but shouldnt there be another particle の after こいぬ?Showing the name as a possive for the dog?

私の子犬名前はアマちゃんです。
(watashi no koinu no namae wa(ha) ama-chan desu.)

Putting the の is up to you -- if you don't have it you should have a comma after 子犬 to show a pause (so then it's more spoken-style).

Its not necessry. です is only used in polite or "politish" speech. If you are speaking informally, than its fine ^^
