Dog Name

By eHow Pets Editor


ers will see your dog's name as a reflection of the dog's personality or even your own. Choose wisely, but have fun, too.

Things You'll Need:

  • New Puppy Kits
  • Puppy Treats


Step 1:

Keep the name short, preferably one or two syllables. This will be easier for your dog to learn and remember.

Step 2:

Choose from a plethora of the usual dog names: Spot, Patch, Poochie, Rover ... or, for the ultimate in typical canine titles, Dog - pronounced "dawg."

Step 3:

Match the name to your dog's personality. A noble hound may be fit to be King; a timid pooch may solicit the name Fluffy.

Step 4:

Bestow upon your dog the honor of being named after your favorite food: Brownie, Sugar, Cream Puff.

Step 5:

Express your sense of humor. Christen your happy Lab Spike, your perpetually growling bulldog Cuddles, or your Great Dane Tim (as in Tiny Tim).

Step 6:

Go the creative route. Take your canine companion's name from the title of your favorite book, your current or a past lover, the name of your favorite actor, a line from your favorite song, the street where you grew up.

Tips & Warnings

  • Get your pup familiarized with his or her name as soon as possible. In a pleased and happy voice, say the name. When the dog looks at you, give praise and treats. Repeat for several days..
  • Be sure the name is distinct from any command words you'll be teaching your dog. For instance, if you name your dog Noah, you'll have to find creative ways of using the word "no."

My dog knows his name, but when I call him, he'll just look at me and won't come. What do I do?
