A Brief Guide to Dogs Names

Jul 9, 2008
Ever since dogs became pets, owners have named them. Some of these dogs names are very strange and one always has to ask where the owner come up with the chosen name. When you get a new puppy, choosing a name is one of the first things you want to do. You may even have a name picked out before you bring the puppy home. There are several things you need to consider before deciding on a definite name. The most important thing is not to choose a name that will sound almost like a command that you want to teach your dog. For example, it would be a bad idea to name a dog "Kit" because this can easily be confused with the command "Sit".

The name you choose should also be short and easy to pronounce so that the children in your family will not have any difficulty calling the dog or learning to say the name. There are also list of both common and unique names for dogs that you can easily find when you search online. You can find names specific to dog breeds. Another thing you should keep in mind is the gender of the dog and try to find a name that is suitable for a female or male dog, but there are some names that could be generic and used for either gender.

Choose the name wisely because in many cases owners choose a name that is closely associated with the dog's personality. A name such as Killer, for example, would lead anyone to think that this is a vicious dog and it is probably quite friendly. You also have to select a name that you really like because it is one that you will be repeating many times.

When you search online for possible names for your puppy, there are various ways in which you can conduct your search. You could look for the most popular names for male and female dogs, or you can search for cute or unusual names. You may want to name your dog after a famous dog in history and there are lists of those online as well. What about choosing a name from another language if you are looking for something completely different? You can even search for a name that has a certain meaning.

It doesn't hurt to wait a few days after you bring home a new puppy before choosing a name. This time allows you to pick up on any unique characteristics of the dog that could lead to your choice of name. Books and television are another source of names. Perhaps you read a book in which there was a dog with a name you really liked or you may have seen on one TV. Whatever name you choose, take steps to teach the dogs its name by using it as much as possible when you call the dog. The faster the dog learns its name, the easier it will be to train.
