Tips for Naming your Dog

  • Go for names that you truly like and enjoy calling even in public. It can be based on some cultural heritage, unique values the dog possess or just something that sounds really great. I could go for something like “Cowboy” if I have a Catahoula Blue Heeler Mix because both are well-known for herding cattles.
  • Shorter names are more fun and easier to pronounce. Your dog would master his name more readily if it does not have too many syllables that are hard too memorize.
  • Give your dog’s names that can easily grab their attention. Use the name on your dog to see his response for few days.
  • Avoid names that have a command ring to them, for example Jump can be confused as John by your dog. To prevent such be more selective in the way you name your dog.
  • Try to never change your dog’s name if he is already used to it. If it warrants that you must change it, use easy names as a replacement.
