How To Pick The Right Dog Name?

Congratulations! For your new addition to your home.

As we wind up, picking the most ideal name for your dog is an important thing to do even before you bring your bundle of joy home.

What are some of the things that you may need to consider when picking a name for your dog?

1. Use the K.I.S.S formula:

When choosing the right name for your dog, simply Keep It Short and Simple. In the society we live in today, less is always more.

Choose a name that your dog can easily learn and grasp as his own.

Dogs just like small children have a short memory so you need to pick a name that will not be confusing to them. Hard names which are difficult to pronounce may not augur well with your canine friend.

2. Pick a unique name:

Choose a unique name for your dog that will make him stand out from the crowd.

You can use your dog’s physical features or personality traits to select the most suitable name for him. This will not only be your dog’s trademark but also a great way to portray his unique self.

Also make sure to teach your dog his name during training sessions.

3. Say the name out loud:

Does this name that you picked for your big dog sound right when said aloud? These are some of the questions you need to be asking yourself even as you brainstorm for the right name.

If it does sound right when you say it out loud, then you definitely have gotten the right name.

4. Trust your gut feeling:

They say your gut feeling or your inner instinct is always right. Then you need to trust your gut. When you pick the right name, it feels and also sounds right!

All the very best in selecting the most suitable name for your huge ball of fur. Have fun while at it and may you pick the right name for your canine friend.
