Have You Decided On a Name?

Sometimes, a name immediately jumps out at us and we just know that’s the right name for our new furry friend. Other times, it takes seemingly forever to choose an outstanding name for our new dog. 

Hopefully, you’ll in that first group and already know exactly what you’re going to name your new pooch. If you aren’t though, here are some tips that might help you along:

  • Make a list of names. If there are many names that you love, write them all down on a list and then try each one on your pup for an hour or two. This won’t confuse your puppy since it often takes a week or two before a dog learns their name. Sometimes we just absolutely love a name, but it just doesn’t fit well on our canine. 
  • Involve others in the process. If there are multiple people in your family, be sure to invovle everyone in naming the new dog. If there are children in your household, be sure they can pronounce your dog’s name. The last thing you need is for your dog to get confused by the mispronunciation. 
  • Choose a shorter name if possible. Short names are easier for dogs to learn, especially in a training context. It is also easier for you to say a shorter name than one that is exceedingly long. It is especially important for dogs to have shorter names in recall situations, where being able to call them quickly can be life-or-death. If your dog is running to a busy road, you’re going to need to say their name quickly. You aren’t going to be able to do that if your dog’s name is “Amarantha”. If you’re in love with a longer name, give your dog a nickname to use for training purposes.
