Best Cute Female Dog Names
Your dog is quite intelligent; it has the mental abilities of a 2-year-old human child. The average dog can learn up to 165 words, including signals and gestures. The smartest dog breeds (generally, border collies, poodles, and German shepherds) can learn up to 250 words. So, think about the words you use around your dog. And, put some thought into the name you pick for your dog, especially if you want it to come when called.
Tips for Naming Your Cute Dog
Consider names with one or two syllables and hard consonants, which will make it easier for your dog to hear and understand. Avoid giving names that sound like commands, such as "Kit" which can be confused with "sit." Also, do not give your dog a name that sounds like a family member, such as Jax which is too close to Jack. If you're still unable to match your dog to a name, think about your dog's personality or something quirky that your dog does that can yield a truly unique, often cute, name.
