How to Name Your Dog

Naming a dog is so much fun, and it’s one of the best ways to start getting to know them. You can draw inspiration from things like their fur color, their favorite snack, or a TV show that you love to watch. Fun as it is, though, naming your dog is not always easy. Some names can be too convoluted or similar to commands, and your dog might get confused.

It’s best to keep your dog’s name simple, preferably one or two syllables. This will make it easier for your dog to recognize when you say it. It’ll also be easy to say when you need to call your dog back in from the yard or to go home after a trip to the dog park. Sometimes a name with three syllables can work, but you need to be extra careful to make sure it’s simple enough for your dog to remember.

Always make sure the name that you choose doesn’t sound like a command that you plan on teaching your dog. Instead of hearing their name, they might think that you’re trying to get them to do something else, and it’ll lead to confusion.
