How to Pick the Perfect Name for Your Dog or Puppy

By NamesFx

Getting to Know Your Dog

Think Of Your Dog’s Personality. Watch your dog for a few days and see if his personality suggests a name.  Does he seem regal?  Is she always the center of attention? How about "King" or "Star"? 


Choose a name based on your Dog's appearance 

A miniature poodle can be named 'Tater Tot' (due to the texture of their fur!) and a bulldog 'Butterball' (duh) But beyond looks, personality also plays a big role in naming your pet.


Avoid names that sound like commands 

Choose a name that is not similar to a command you plan to teach your dog. It would be confusing to teach "Fletch" to fetch or "Shae" to stay.


Choose Short Names

The name should be one to two syllables long. Longer names can be confusing for your dog and a hassle for you to pronounce.


Choose a Good Name That Ends With a Vowel 

Vowel names change tone when you call for your dog. This is significant because dogs are much better at distinguishing frequency ranges than humans. 


Pick a name that will fit your dog regardless of his age.  For example, a puppy named “Fuzzy” may not be a good fit after he grows into adulthood.


Dog Age

Choose A Name That’s Unlike Your Other Pets 


If you have more than one dog, make sure their names are dissimilar. They shouldn't be so close to each other that the dogs get confused

Above All Else, Pick a Name You Like


Try out the name you would like to give your dog for a day or two.  Any name you give your dog will be a commitment for the next 10 to 15 years. 


Test out the name

Make sure you use your dog's name often so that he can learn it quickly. Use his name only in positive and playful situations, such as when you feed him, play with him, or pet him.
