How to Pick The Perfect Dog Name For Dog

Most pet owners think naming a dog is easy until the big day comes, then all hell breaks loose. Choosing the right name for your dog is a really big deal, it’s like choosing a name for your baby or business. A good name plays an important role in a dog’s training, morale, and socialization.

Here’s a guide I always following when I’m picking a new name for my dog.

  1. Keep It Simple

You have to idea how easy it is to pick a good dog name. My brother had a bulldog once and he named her “Bulldozer” and it fit her perfectly. When picking a name for your dog, keep things simple.

Short names with one or two syllables are the best names for dogs. This is good because once you call their name, it grabs their attention and they respond.

You should also know that when choosing the perfect dog name makes training your dog easier. A good dog name has to fit your pet’s personality. Here’s a list of simple and cool names for dogs:

  • Food and Beverage names for dogs – Ginger, Oreo, Sugar, Peanuts, Biscuits, Pumpkin, Snickers…
  • Celebrity names for dogs – Kim, Ariana, Daina, Flair, Diesel, Kobe, Ciara, Charlotte, Lady…
  • Superhero names for dogs – Barry, Flash, Logan, Bruce, Clark, Mary Jane, Groot, Thor, Zeus… See it’s that easy. Pick a name that you can relate to and go with it.
  1. Go for Popular Names

You can ease up the whole task by going for common dog names. You can choose to name your dog after your best friend in college, you can name your dog after the place you grew up, you can even name your dog after your favorite color.

  1. Name Her After a Family Member

Yea, this sounds odd but since you’re welcoming a new member to your family, you should choose a name that is not just right but perfect. This is one of the easiest ways to pick a good dog name.

But when naming your dog after your family member, don’t name her after someone that lives in the same house with you so they don’t confuse each other when you call.

And also, do not pick a dog name that is similar or sounds like the name of another family member. For example, if your daughter’s name is “Penny” and you name your dog is “Lenny”, you will be having two confused people every time you say their names.

Here’s a list of simple but catchy names for family dogs:

  • Betty
  • Max
  • Charlie
  • Lily
  • Bella
  • Harry
  • Arya

  1. Pick Names With Positive Context

You can name your dog after his personality. Why do you think that most people name their dog Chase? You can easily pick a good dog name from his personality. There are good dog names that go with their personalities like Billy, Bully, Jack, Lake, and Cookie.

  1. Avoid Dog Names That Sounds Like Commands

When naming your dog stay clear of names that sound like or rhyme with common command. These types of names have been known to confuse the dog in training. Names like Jay (Stay), Kit (Sit), Luke (Look)…

  1. Pick Names With Sharp Consonant

Dogs respond to names with sharp sounding consonants like K, C, H, P… Research from experts & animal behaviorists have proven that dog responds better to names with hard consonants.

These sounds are easily captured by the dog’s ears and stimulate receptors in their dog’s brain, thereby grabbing more attention. They instantly know that you are talking yo them.
