I believe in the power of a pet's name. Here's some help for choosing yours.

Dogs with beautiful red or orange coats are a true pet blessing. They stand out from the pack because their coats are shiny, and their fiery reddish-orange hue is pretty rare compared to other basic canine coat colors like black, white, or brown.

Below are red-hot names for your red or orange puppy. There are so many great ideas that you might have trouble picking just one, so here are a few tips to help you narrow it down to just one name:

  • Write the top five names down on pieces of paper. Whichever one you pick out of a hat is the one!

  • Try calling your puppy. See what she or he responds to the most.

  • Narrow your choices down to your top five favorites, and ask friends and family which name is most suitable.

  • Come up with a name that doesn’t have to do with the color of the coat! There are so many other things you can base the name off of, such as personality, breed, the type of activity the breed is known for (is it a sporty dog, a hunting breed, or a lap dog, etc.), or how it looks.

If you are looking for a red or orange dog, I’ve included at the end of this article a list of breeds that tend to have red or orange coats.
