Dog names meaning friend

Another tip that you might want to keep in mind is that a dog name should not be too long. Stick to a name of about one or two syllables, this way you will keep it simple and clear for your dog. Your dog’s name is like a command to him, it simply means having to give you attention and then another command follows.

Pronunciation is very important


Every command we try to teach our dogs are short and clear terms, we don’t want to confuse them. Remember to keep the name short and simple as well. You could even practice a possible name out loud first. Say it out loud, are you able to call the name correctly and clearly at all times? Then it could be that one perfect name!
