Good Girl Dog Names

Dog Name Inspiration

Inspiration for your dog's name can come from almost anywhere. It is important to find a name that you won't mind yelling out in public, that you find attractive and appealing, and that suits your new puppy or dog.

A simple place to begin is by looking over popular dog name lists and finding a few that seem stick out from the crowd. From there you may look at some of your favorite foods, seasons, celebrities, fictional characters, or any verbal representation of your new dog's attitude and personality.

For example, you may have a puppy that was known to bully their litter-mates. A great name for the alpha of the litter can be as easy as naming them 'Alpha', or as intellectual as giving the name of 'Alex' after Alexander the Great.

Another few areas to explore are names within pop culture and digital media. For example you can pay homage to names of favourite characters from tv shows, films, musicians and even idols you look up to.

Inspiration is all around you. Just be sure to pick a name that you know everyone in your family can be happy with to ensure that your new dog is greeted with nothing but love and affection when they come home for the first time.

Help Choosing The Perfect Name

If you are still having issues choosing the perfect name for your dog, don't be too concerned. It is a normal thing for new pet parents to struggle with this decision in the beginning.

While some pet owners may have had a name picked out for weeks before they even see their new puppy, it is much more common for owners to wait until they get a feel for the dog that they are bringing home before picking out a suitable moniker.

Remember that in the first few days your new dog will still be getting used to the name that you give them, so if you need to try out a few different options until you find one that feels right now is the time to do it.

Some Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A New Name For Your Dog:

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere. Books, food, your own background, even from your dog's breed.

Don't limit yourself to the usual names, but don't be ashamed of giving your dog a name that has seen its fair share of use.

At the end of the day, if your dog is a 'Spot' or 'Fido', there is nothing wrong with that, similarly if you just know that your dog is a 'Shasta' or 'Tigress' then be proud of the unique and wonderful name you have chosen for your new puppy.

Keep in mind that some names can confuse your dog during training. For example, if you choose to name your new puppy 'May', it might get confusing when you attempt to teach her to stay.

A simple method around this issue is giving commands using your body, your intention, and your voice. This will allow your dog to know the difference between a 'sit and stay' command and you simply calling their name.

Dog experts recommend considering a name with hard consonants such as Callum or Kendra, as these sounds are easier for dogs to hear.

A final note to keep in mind when choosing your dog's name is that you need to pay attention to how you feel when you say it. Test it out a few times before deciding.

Give commands using the hypothetical name and really get used to saying it over and over again. Especially with puppies, this will be a name that you use more times than you ever thought possible.

It's important that you are comfortable and happy with your new dog's name to ensure that they are comfortable and happy.

If you get annoyed, anxious, or frustrated any time you try to pronounce a unique, but ultimately difficult name, then you have a good chance of conveying those negative feelings to your dog, even when they have done nothing wrong. Keep in mind that most communication between an owner and their dog is non-verbal.

Conclusion

Whichever name you choose for your dog, just remember that the most important thing is not what you call your dog, but how you train, exercise, and love your new companion.

While humans tend to get stuck on strict naming conventions and our desire for our pets to be named cool, cute, or tough names, our dogs care very little about what they are called. They only care about how their new family treats them and how quickly they can win some tasty snacks.

So, take your time choosing a name that you love, and once you have, be confident in your choice, knowing that your dog will love you regardless of what you call them.

Now you have an idea what you may call your new furry friend why not take a glance at our custom pet blankets. They are perfect gifts for any dog lover!
