What’s in a Name?

For many new pet owners, the first and most important decision they will make as a new pet owner is picking out the perfect name for their dog or cat. Whether you choose to stick with the most popular name or seek out the uncommon, unique name, there are a few things you should consider.

First off:

  1. Make a short list of preferred names.

  2. Keep the names on the list simple, unless you want to go for something more complex.

  3. Choose to call the dog by a shorter name, as it’s easier to learn.

  4. Choose a name that’s easily recognizable.

  5. Don’t confuse the name with a command.

  6. Study your pet’s behavior can help make choosing a name easier.

  7. Consider your pet’s appearance as a guide.

Once you’ve done these things, picking a name will be a breeze, even though there are thousands of names to choose from! Remember that the name you choose for them is long-term. Keep it simple, fun and enjoyable for all!
