Quick Rules for Choosing a Dog Name

  • Short is Good:  Dogs usually hear the first syllable.
  • Words ending in an "a" or "e" sound work well.
  • Two syllable words are easiest to teach.
  • Choose a name you can hear yourself shouting down your road (You never know when your sweet little fur ball is going to take off.)
  • Pick a name that doesn’t sound like a training command
  • Pick a name that doesn’t sound like the name of someone else in the family.
  • Use the same name always; dogs don’t understand nicknames.
