What Should I Name My Girl Puppy?

The thing to remember about naming your girl puppy is not to rush it. Unless you have a specific moniker in mind  for your new puppy, you should take some time to get to know your pup before choosing one. Before long, your girl puppy will start to display personality attributes that will inspire you to come up with the perfect name for their pet id tag.

Here are some other factors to keep in mind as you weigh your options. 

Getting Your Dog's Attention

A name that has hard consonants and uses only one to two syllables is preferable for not only ensuring your dog hears her name when called but also pays heed when you speak it. Longer names with three or even four syllables don't have the same punch for attracting and keeping a dog's attention. Taking this into consideration will help you with the training process.

Confused Commands

Names that sound similar to standard basic commands can be confusing for your dog. Any name that sounds like “sit”, “heel”, “come”, and “no”, will have your dog wondering if you're calling her name or issuing a command to obey. This can make it very challenging to train your pup.
