Things to avoid when you are looking for a puppy name

When you are looking for a newborn puppy name there are certain things you need to avoid. You want a name that is nice, fits the puppy and one that the puppy really listens to. It would be a shame if you put all this effort into finding a good puppy name just to end up with a puppy that does not listen to that name. The first thing to avoid is picking a puppy name that is too similar to other names in your household. Is your son called ‘Tim’? Then you probably should not choose ‘Jim’ as the name of your puppy. This might confuse the puppy and he starts reacting when you call ‘Tim’ or does not react to ‘Jim’ because he does not know that you are calling him. The same is true for a puppy name that is similar to words that are regularly used in your household. If the pet name for puppies is too similar to certain words, the puppy can easily get distracted. Also, do not choose a name that sounds like a command. The puppy name ‘Kit’, for example would not work very good in combination with the command ‘sit’. You could end up with a puppy that sits down every time you call his name. One more thing to take into account when looking for a puppy name is the names of people you know. Maybe you think that it is cute or nice to name your puppy after someone you know, but always check with that person, first. Not everyone likes to have the same name as a dog, even if it is meant in a nice way. So before naming the puppy after a friend or a family member, always ask first!

Things to consider when searching puppy names

Before starting to look for a puppy dog name, there are several things you should think about beforehand. There are many different types of puppy names with lots of different characteristics. In order to keep an overview and not get lost in the abundance of dog baby names, it might be handy to make up your mind beforehand. Would you like the puppy name to have a meaning? Or rather not? And if yes, what meaning should it have? Would you like a popular new puppy name? But then you need to be aware of the fact that you will probably encounter quite a lot of other dogs with the same name. Some people do not like this, so then a popular puppy name might not be the right choice. If you do not mind, then a popular puppy name might be the right name for your puppy. The next thing to think about is the length of the newborn puppy name. You might already have your own preference for the length of the puppy name. But there are some guidelines you should take into account. First, the longer the pet names for puppies, the more difficult it is for the puppy between all the other words you are saying. It will also take more time to teach a dog a long name. Then you might think that the best puppy name is as short as possible, but that is not completely true. If you choose a one-syllable puppy name, the puppy will be quick to learn it but in your everyday life you will quickly start to change the name. If you have to call your puppy ‘’Bo’ for the tenth time and he still does not listen, it will quickly become an annoyed ‘Boo-hoo’. Experts advise to pick a puppy dog name with two syllables. It is still short enough so that the puppy can easily learn to recognize it, but not too short to call in every tone of voice. The last thing to take into account for a good puppy name is the sound. Some sounds are easier for the puppy to distinguish than other sounds. Puppies can distinguish the s-sound better than humans and in general, hard sounds are easier to recognize. If you want to make it easier for your puppy to learn his name, make sure to take this into account. However, the most important thing is that you like the name that you choose. After all, you will have to use it quite a lot for the next 12 to 15 years.
