Choosing the Right Name for Your New Pup

Choosing the Right Name for Your New Pup

Many families get a new dog for the holidays. Choosing the right dog for your family may have been an easy task, but choosing a name can be tricky. Here are some useful tips on how to choose a name for your new dog:

  1. Pick a name that is short and sweet. Your dog will be more likely to recognize their own name if you choose a name with one or two syllables.
  2. Avoid names that sound close to a command. For example, the name ‘Bo’ sounds close to ‘No’ and could confuse your dog.
  3. Use your dog’s breed for some useful inspiration. For example, if your dog’s breed is Irish (Wolfhound or Setter), find a fitting Irish name.
  4. Wait a few days to study your new dog’s behavior before choosing a name. Once you get to know your dog’s personality, a name may come easier.
  5. Pick a name that will grow well with your dog. Choose a name that will be a good fit as your dog ages.
