One of the most exciting as well as confusing part of adopting and raising a new pup is choosing a suitable name for it. There are so many options that people often don’t know where to start. Consequently, they often end up calling their pups with random names. And their dogs even don’t know how to respond to such names.
Selecting that one right name for your furry friend is very important for an effective start to your dog parenting journey. Your pup’s overall behaviour and response towards you will depend on the name by which you call him. If he doesn’t understand or remember the name you have given, there are high chances that your dog won’t listen to you at all.
Points to Remember While Naming Your Dog
Here are some important points that you must keep in mind while naming your pup. These points will not only help you to select the most suitable name for your dog but also streamline the whole name selection process.
- Select a name that concludes with a vowel sound: Dogs have a much higher potential to differentiate between frequency ranges than human beings. Consequently, when you call your dog with a vowel name, they become aware of the change of tone that a vowel name tends to exhibit.
- Avoid using lengthy names: Your Dog’s brain size is one-tenth of your brain. Consequently, he may find it difficult to remember his name if it is too lengthy. Besides that, you will also get tired of calling him with such a long name after a point of time. Therefore, use a small, snappy name that contains only two syllables.
- Avoid using a name that sounds like a command: It is very important to select a name that is not similar to any of the commands you may use to address your pup. Otherwise, your dog may get confused whenever you call him by his name.
- Choose an uncommon name: Your dog has its own unique personality. Then why choose a very common name? Moreover, a common name or a name that is similar to your other pets or family members can confuse your dog. Therefore, you must try to search for a unique name for your four-legged friend.
