How Do You Pick The Right Name?
After years of helping people select the right pet name, we’ve picked up a trick or two to help new pet owners hone in on the perfect dog name. Follow these four steps and you’ll be 100 percent confident in your name choice.
- Does it roll off the tongue? Some names are awesome on paper but tough to pronounce out loud. If you have troubles with the name, others most definitely will as well. And that makes it confusing for your dog.
- Say it out loud. Can you imagine loudly calling for your dog with this name? If not, then keep on searching. You’ll have to say your dog’s name many times throughout the day, so make sure you’re comfortable with it.
- Does it fit your dog? You might have the perfect name picked out but if it doesn’t fit with your dog’s personality or appearance, then it’s not the right one.
- Trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it! Always go with your intuition.
How To Teach A Dog Its Name
Teaching your dog its name might seem like an overwhelming task in the beginning, but with a little practice and persistence, your pup will pick it up in no time.
Here are some tips to speed things up and make it a painless and pleasant experience:
- First, make sure you’re in a quiet place without distractions. This will allow your dog to focus and fully understand what’s going on.
- From there, repeat your dog’s name, and when your pup looks at you, say “Yes!” and give them a treat. Repeat this 3-5 times in a row.
- Continue to say your dog’s name in every interaction with them. Even if it seems obnoxious (and trust us, it will). Before you know it, they’ll understand their name like a champ.
