Let's See What Makes A Name Good For A Dog

There are some things you should consider when choosing a dog name so that you won’t regret it later.

Gorgeous male Labradoodle.Hello friends! My family chose the name "Sir Spanky" for me. Great name for a handsome boy like me, don't you think?

Sir Spanky's photo was shared by his mom, Kimberly Willis Altenberg, on our happy-lucky-dog's facebook page.

Useful Tips When Choosing Unique Dog Names

  • Keep it sort and simple. Dogs respond better to names with one or two syllables.  Three maximum. Your dog will learn its name quicker and training will become much  easier.
  • Have in mind that you are going to use one of these unique dog names many times a  day -everyday- for the next 10-15 years. Let’s assume that you call your dog 15  times a day. That’s 54.750 times in 10 years! So, pick wisely.
  • Say it aloud and listen to yourself. How does it sound? Is it easy to pronounce?
  • How do you feel saying it? Would you feel comfortable shouting this name in  public? What’s the dog’s reaction?
  • Have in mind that your dog's name is his/her identity in the public world and  also says a lot about you since you picked it. Does it send out the right message?
  • Don’t choose a name that sounds like a command. This will probably confuse your  dog and make training harder.
  • Avoid giving your dog the name of a relative, co-worker, friend or your boss. Many people may feel offended.
  • Avoid any potentially embarrassing name. Something that sounds pretty at first, when your dog is still a cute little puppy, can make you feel uncomfortable in the  future. Names like "killer" or "stinky" can make people smile when they belong to  a little puppy. Things change the moment that same puppy grows up though.
  • Reject any name that humiliates your dog. Names like "silly" or anything like that.
  • Respect your dog. Take into consideration his/her gender, breed, size, color,  personality and special traits. Take your time and get to know your dog. This  knowledge will give you the best ideas for the perfect name.
  • Always keep in mind that dogs may not understand human language but they can  certainly understand human reactions!
