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!
