Tips to Help You Choose a Dog Name
When choosing a name, it’s important to choose it wisely. Whatever name you choose you will be saying it for 10 or more years. Here are some tips to help you choose the best name for your pup.
- Stick to one or two syllable words. Shorter words are easier for them to understand. If you really love a longer name find a nickname that you will use most of the time.
- Don’t pick a name that sounds like a command. Dogs will not be able to tell the difference between Bo and No.
- Pick a name you can easily say. You will be saying it a lot.
- Make sure you are comfortable saying it in public.
- Remember your dog may be judged based on the name you give them. You don’t want to name your sweet pup, “Killer.”
- When choosing a name think about how it relates to the dog.
