Choosing the Perfect Name:  Suggestions

  • Choose a name you feel comfortable shouting in public or one you won’t be embarrassed to write on the dog’s health record at the vet’s office
  • Pick one that is easy to use when you start training.  Remember when you begin to teach commands, you will want to say your pup’s name first, then the command.

Example:  Jake, Sit

Example Napoleon Bonaparte the Third, Sit

Which name do you think might be easier?

  • Pick a name that is not too close to any other family pets or humans in your household. For example, your son’s name is Jake and you name the dog Jakey.  Someone might get a little confused.

  • Don’t feel obligated to choose one of the most popular dog names in the land.  This list changes often and by the time your dog is a senior, his name is unlikely to remain on the top ten lists.
  • Choose a name that will be appropriate for the dog’s entire life span
