Choosing a dog name for your new dog or puppy is one of the first challenges of dog ownership and in some ways one of the most important. The dog name you choose says as much about you as it does about your dog or puppy.
It demonstrates how you view your dog and the relationship you share with your dog. Some people will judge your dog solely on the name you give it, so it is important to use a dog name that conveys the proper image.
Here are a few things to consider:
- You will use your dog's name over 35000 times
- You need to say your dog's name out loud
- Your dog's name will be used for praise and discipline
- A good dog's name is short and easy to say
It is a good idea to spend some time with your dog before naming them. Get to know their personality and characteristics. Observing your dog's traits as well as their physical features may serve as the perfect source of inspiration.
One of the best ideas we had was to get a baby name book. It took us about a month to name our puppy but as soon as my partner read out his name we both knew that was the one!
