Tips For Naming Your Dog

 

While naming a pet is fun, (and sometimes challenging for the whole family), there are a couple of important tips we would like to offer so you can avoid confusion with your furry friend in the future.

When choosing names for pets, keep in mind:

  • To pick a name that your dog or puppy can easily recognize
     
  • Many animals, including dogs (and cats) respond better to one and two syllable words
     
  • So instead of  "Theridamas" they will respond better to the shortened, "Terri" or "Damas"
     
  • With dogs, try not to give him or her a name that sounds like one of the basic commands (No, Down, Sit, Stay, Come, Fetch,etc.)
     
  • For instance, the name "Kit" might be mistaken with "Sit" or the name "Star" might be confused with "Stay"

This Site is Always Adding New Dog Names and Information!

 

This website is a hobby for us so we happily do it for free. (We know, we're crazy!) But we love all animals, are considerate of their rights, and are continually adding more information that we hope you find helpful. 

We have recently added an pet adoption and rescue section, giving useful resources and a reserved list of agencies, as well as some good dog health and training information.

We hope to give you many more different German, Scottish, popular, and favorite names for your furry friends, because this site is by no means complete; simply because the possibilities are endless. 

We are always adding new dog names on a regular basis, so bookmark * this site, and come back often to visit and see what's going on!

So get started, play around, and have fun.....Woof!
