Naming your pooch is very exciting and important task you have to undertake. Get the family involved, make a fun filled family night on the pretext of naming the dog. Here are some important guidelines you should keep in mind while deciding the name:

  1. Keep it short: Dogs have a memory space of around 150 words that they can remember so make sure the name you assign them is short sweet. Pick a name that comes easily to your lips. Make sure that his name doesn’t rhyme with any of the commands you plan on teaching him. For ex: “Rover, roll over” you will just get a quizzical look from your pup. You can also name him based on some unique character of his, like if his tail is a little curled up you can call him “Curly”.
  2. Don’t think of relatives: It is extremely rude to name your pup after a relative (whether dead or alive) or even friends. People go to the extent of naming their children after a deceased pet, which some may frown upon, so stay clear from names you know and shop for names that are fresh.
  3. Give a second name: This second name is only to be used when you want your pup to know that you are angry with him for something done wrong. So instead of getting the anger into your voice, the simple emphasis on the second name should make your dog realize that he has done something wrong. For example, when you play with him you affectionately call him “Tommy” but when you say “Tommy Sawyer, please come here” your dog should know something is up.
  4. Successor of the predecessor: If you’ve had a pup/dog before and think it wise to name him as the second, please don’t. Make new memories and move on from the name. Example: “Freddrick the third”, “Philip the second”. It all sounds like part of the royal family than your family.
