Considerations for Picking Your Dog’s Name
We encourage you not to be afraid to take your time in picking your puppy’s name. Naming dogs is more for our benefit than our dog’s. since we could teach them to come to us by associating any sound with positive reinforcement. So, we encourage you not to worry about rushing to pick a name.
Take the time to get to know your dog and its personality, favorite activities, toys, foods, etc. Ask yourself:
- Are they snuggly and lazy?
- Are they full of energy and rambunctious?
- Do they love long walks or prefer to tire themselves out playing fetch at high speeds?
- Does your puppy enjoy the company of other dogs or like to stick by humans?
- Is your puppy more reserved or silly and wiggly?
The answers to these questions can help you pick a great name for your furry friend.
Your puppy’s appearance can also inspire a name. Some dogs look regal and similar to their wolf descendants, like huskies and shepherd breeds. In contrast, other puppies look adorably hilarious, like French bulldogs and pugs. Some dogs have wide stances, while others are long and lean.
Some puppies have coats that are long and black as night, while others, like the oh-so-adorable Pitbulls, have a very short coat that comes in a variety of colors. Many names can be derived from thinking about the physical characteristics of your puppy.
