Tips for Naming Your Fluffy Dog

Before settling on a name for your dog, make sure you consider a few factors, like physical characteristics, personality, and coat. You don't have to name your dog right away, and it can actually help to wait until you get to know them better before deciding. Keep in mind how easy the name is to understand—you don't want to choose a long or hard-to-pronounce name that your dog won't learn is their name. Also, make sure that whatever name you choose is a name you'll feel comfortable telling your vet, friends, and family. It might seem all in good fun to name your pet dog something funny, but if you'll be embarrassed when your vet calls your dog's name in the waiting room, that name probably isn't the right one.
