How to choose a name for your dog?

Choosing your dog or puppy’s name is so important – once you’ve picked it, you can’t change it. So, you must make sure you pick the perfect one!

Once your dog has learned its name, you can use it to capture his/her attention, which makes communication between dog and owner a lot easier! That’s not to say your dog will be any more willing to leave the dog park when you call him, but it’s a start.

The most popular dog name in the UK is currently ‘Bella’. But picking a name can’t only be based on your personal preference – your dog needs to like it too!

Think about the sound

The first thing to consider when choosing your dog’s name is the length of it. Did you know that dogs only hear two syllables? It’s therefore better to avoid names that are too long, because dogs will have difficulty hearing them and understanding them. Try to follow a "deaf" consonant, a more "sonorous" vowel, or you can repeat the same sound: Lulù, Kiki …

Think of a clear name

Another element to consider is that your dog’s name shouldn’t resemble any commands you will be teaching him, otherwise he might get confused. For instance, ‘Kit’ sounds a lot like ‘sit’, or ‘Ray’ sounds a lot like ‘stay’. Make sure your dog’s name is clear and easily recognisable.

Think of your dog's personality

Other considerations include your dog’s size, sex, and personality. For example, short impact names are better for dogs who are independent or dominant in nature, as they will pick up on them more easily.

Dog names by language:

Whatever the name you choose, make sure it’s a name you and your family actually like. Though you undoubtedly have more freedom than when naming a human baby, ensure that it’s a name you won’t mind calling out loud at the dog park! A dog is a member of the family and will be your everyday companion for many happy years. You don’t want to be calling out a name you don’t like for that long!

Happy choosing!
