Tips for Choosing a Name for Your Dog

Choose a name that suits your pet’s personality, and ensure that it’s easy to pronounce, containing only one to two syllables. It shouldn’t be too similar to other common words or commands and unless you enjoy the mainstream, shouldn’t follow any modern trends. Consider names that hold personal significance and ones that reflect your pet’s breed, size, coat color, and physical features. Pick a name that sounds good when you say it out loud, especially if your pet also likes it.
