Quick tips: How to pick a name for your dog

Whether it’s military dog names, dog names that mean freedom, or even nicknames for the American flag that caught your eye…if you’d love to give your pup a patriotic dog name but just can’t decide, how do you really know which is the right choice?

To help you out, here are some quick and easy tips when it comes to choosing a name for your dog:

  • Make sure it’s not a tongue twister! Sure, some names may seem cute or clever – but if they’re tricky to pronounce, then this will take the fun out of saying their name everyday.
  • Say the name out loud. Is it the kind of name you’d be comfortable saying in public, or calling out to your dog? If not, then there’s probably a better choice with your dog’s name on it (see what we did there!)
  • Does the name seem to fit your pup? Have a good think about your dog’s personality, and their cute or distinctive physical traits. If it feels like a good match, you may just be on to a winner.

At the end of the day, just trust your instinct and do what feels right for you! After all, no one knows your best friend better than you do.
