How to Choose a Dog’s Name

It’s not all just in a name. A female puppy’s name is an important part of her training and socialization. Take some advice from experts in the field:

Choose a name with one or two syllables. These are easiest to say and short enough to get your dog’s attention.
Consider a name with hard consonants, which may be easier for dogs to hear than sibilant sounds, like “Gracie” or “Bailey.”
Try not to choose a name that sounds similar to a command. Avoid names like “Kit,” which sounds like “sit,” or “Poe,” which sounds like “no.”
When a dog hears her name, it’s a signal that whatever is coming next is meant for her. So use her name frequently in a positive context so she doesn’t associate it with punishment or something negative.
Don’t name a dog something that sounds a lot like the name of another family member. If your daughter is “Annie” and the dog is “Franny,” the dog (or your daughter) may be confused and not know when to respond.
