How Do You Pick The Right Name?

You’re going to be saying your dog’s name for years to come, so you’ve got to be sure it’s a good fit for your furbaby.

Over the years we’ve helped millions of new dog owners find the perfect name. Here are a few tricks that will help you in your search:

  1. Make sure it rolls off the tongue. A name may look good on paper, but if it’s hard to pronounce, that’s not good for you or your dog.
  2. Say it out loud. Can you imagine standing at your front door calling this name? If the answer is no, skip it.
  3. Does it fit your dog’s appearance and personality?  You might have the perfect name picked out but it doesn’t fit them, that’s a miss.
  4. Trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it!
