What Should I Name My New Puppy?

How to Choose a Name for Your Puppy

With the holiday season upon us, many of us will be adding new members of new furry friends to our family dynamic as new pets are quite popular with many people during holiday season. The arrival of a new puppy to the house is always an exciting event. Puppies fill the house with joy, good energy, and love. 

Then an inevitable question arises; How are we going to call him/her?

Naming a puppy is not always an easy task. Some people have the tendency of using “people names” for dogs. The name we select for a puppy is key to communicating with him or her. According to trainers, a dog’s name has an effect on how he or she responds.

It is important to remember that dogs do not understand the meaning of a name. For them, a name is just a sound, a command to which they will respond. You should strive to choose a name that can generate a quick response from your dog.

A dog’s name should not rhyme too closely with the name of another family member or with a command. The goal is to make it easy for your dog to learn his or her name. And, yes, you can also choose a name that matches your dog’s personality!

Many trainers suggest choosing a dog’s name with two syllables. Some examples of good dog names are:

  • Bella
  • Buddy
  • Cosmo
  • Lucky
  • Rocky

Once you and your family have agreed on a name for the new family member, it is a good idea to consider acquiring a personalized dog collar. Not only will your dog look really cute with a collar or harness that has his or her name, but he or she will be safer in the case of an unfortunate event.

We have a great selection of personalized items for your furry friends by Coastal Pet Products offering a great variety of personalized dog collars, harnesses and leashes, which allow you to include your dog’s name and a phone number to be used in case of an emergency.
