Rules for Naming a Dog

The rules are quite simple but very important to follow. You probably have seen these general guidelines before, but I'll mention them briefly here.

  • Two syllable names are the easiest for dogs to learn
  • Try not to use the same or similar sounding names of family members or other pets.
  • Do not pick names that sound like training commands (sit, stay)
  • Don't use a name that would be offensive.  Remember you may need to call your dog in public.
  • Unless you live alone and this will be your puppy, be sure that everyone in the household agrees with the name.
  • Once you decide on a name, stick with it.  It's often fun to come up with nicknames but that just confuses the dog.
  • Try it out on your puppy and see how he responds.
