Cool Dog Names – How Will You Name That Puppy?
Your definition of what is cool really depends on your interests and personality. Naming your pet is the first step toward bonding. Don’t pick a name because someone else thinks it’s cool. Choose a name that suits both your dog’s personality and yours.
Your dog is your best friend and you will call your dog an average of 25,000 times during his life. Imagine giving your dog the wrong name!
Another fact is that many dog owners would like to change their dog’s name after a few months. Why stress the dog with a new name when you can get it right from the start?
Below are some great dog name suggestions. But before we start, here are some more tips. Don’t use dog names that sound similar to very common words and commands like ‘go, stay, sit, eat, come, run’, etc. The biggest mistake owners make is to give the dog a cure name that fits well while the dog is young and still a puppy, but sounds stupid for an adult dog.
Another not-so-great idea is to name the dog after people you know. They may not be very happy with it. Here are some suggestions on how you can find a good dog name:
If you like sports:
Name your dog after your favorite team or the city he plays in.
“Dolphin” is only great if your dog likes to swim. “Miami” is a great name.
