Now that you’ve brought home the perfect puppy, you may find yourself in a rut because you have not picked out the best name for the newest member of the pack. One thing to remember though in picking out a puppy’s name is that it is not just a name. Your puppy dog’s name will reveal a lot of things about you, your puppy, and the bond of friendship that binds both of you together for life. Over the course of your puppy’s life and as he grows into adulthood and into his twilight years, he will respond to the name you have chosen for him while he was still a puppy. If you are still looking for that perfect name to give your cute and cuddly puppy, here are some tips to help you on your way. Make the “name our puppy” activity a family affair. When thinking about names, more heads are better than one. Since everyone will be using or calling out the puppy’s name, it would be a good ounce of measure to make everyone feel that they are already responsible for the puppy even when it has just arrived. Never name your dog after your favorite persons especially the closest ones—think about what you will feel when your best friend names his dog after you. Stay away from words that rhyme with the most common commands like “Fay” (rhymes with “stay”) or Bop (rhymes with “stop”). Your puppy will surely be confused when you call out his name.
