What’s in a Name?

One of the first joys of pet ownership is picking out a name for your new 4-legged family member.  For some, this may come easy, but for others, deciding on a name is a task that requires much thought.  On average, dogs live 10-13 years so you will be stuck with whatever name you choose for the foreseeable future.

Tips to consider when naming your new furry-friend:

  • Short and sweet. Short, 1 -2-syllable names often work best, as they are easy for the owner to say and for the pet to distinguish. 
  • Rhymes with no = a no-no. Names that sound similar to common obedience commands can be a challenge for both pet and owner.  While Snow may seem fitting for a fluffy, white puppy, it could make teaching ‘No’ difficult.
  • Give it time. Getting to know your new pup’s personality may make a name choice obvious. 
  • Think it through. Inevitably, you will be yelling whatever name you choose out the back door every day.  Snuggles may seem like a wonderful name to your 5-year-old, but may lose its sweetness when calling outside for him at 3 am!
