Tips for Naming Your Dog

  • Choose something that sounds natural to you and rolls off the tongue. Ask yourself if you can envision yourself saying this name for years to come.
  • Pick a name you're proud of. Are you comfortable yelling out this name in public at the dog park? If you aren't, steer clear.
  • Don't pick a name that is similar sounding to another person in your household. This will confuse your pup.
  • You could choose something that holds meaning to you or reminds you of something special.
  • Go with your gut! Don't spend too much time researching, or you'll just end up frustrated and confused. Go with the first name that sounds right. You'll know when you hear it.
