How to Name Your Dog

Once they’re home, you can mark names off the list as your dog’s personality begins to shine. Maybe when you were looking at names, you were thinking that Cabernet would be a great dog name, but now you’re realizing that you’ve got a rough-and-tumble Jim Beam on your hands. It’s ok to take a few days to choose the perfect name for your new dog!
