Beagle Names Inspired By Their Howl and Baying

How Do You Pick The Right Name?

How do you know if you’ve picked the right name for your dog? That’s a question all new dog parents ask.

After years of helping new pup parents, here are some tips we’ve picked up when it comes to selecting a name for your dog:

  • Is it easy to say? Some names are great in theory but tough to pronounce in everyday life. Before you lock in on a name, make sure it rolls off the tongue.
  • Say it out loud. Can you imagine loudly calling for your dog with this name? If not, then it’s not the right name and you should move on.
  • Does it fit your dog? Check to see if the name matches your dog’s personality and appearance. This is important for both you and your pup.
  • And finally, trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it!
