Consider The Breed When Naming Your Puppies

Naming your puppies can be tough, since it will stay the same as long as you have the dog. Friends may question your sanity if the name is odd. Likewise, you may be considered boring if the name is unimaginative.

A very small, unpublished study has resulted in a great method for naming puppies. The data has been broken down into instructions for you to maintain the respect of friends, and for the dog to actually respond when you call. Animals can only understand short words that stand out from a sentence. They are not as smart as we like to tell our friends they are.

Names that do not have a hard sound are hard for dogs to hear. Teddy is much easier for dogs to pick out than Theodore because the initial T is hard in Teddy. A simple name used over and over, like Spot is very easy for dogs to understand. Friends, however, will label you boring. Very long names are almost impossible for dogs to remember, like King Reginald of the Matterhorn. King, however, is a great name and dogs will respond to it quickly.

Some people have a sense of humor that may not be the best to impress friends, like naming a puppy Dog. Those same friends may roll their eyes once again if you use the name Cat for the puppy. The study has shown that the same person teaches the command Go to call a dog to them. While funny while very young, adults do not always think this humor is valid.

The best way to name a pet is to first take into account the breed. The next information to gather is to determine the most important personality traits of your pet. Strong, intelligent breeds like German shepherds should have a similar name, like Judge or King. An excellent name for females is Nike, the Greek goddess of victory. Names that have only one syllable are best and dogs respond quickly to them.

Tiny dogs that have a very specific niche of owners, like Pomeranians, often have very cute names. Although they act fierce and will take on animals much larger, they appear to humans as tiny balls of fluff. Those who prefer larger dogs, but have somehow been blessed with a tiny, barking Pomeranian, the name Pox may be best. Check out the lineage of the dogs. Pomeranians have descended from Spitz dogs, a noble breed.

Once known as badger hounds because they hunted beasts of the same name, Dachshunds are sweet and loyal. Often Dachshunds are found as miniatures, but have retained their hunting skills. Although now they hunt rabbits instead of the badgers their predecessors hunted. Natives of Germany, they aspire to achieve the rank of certified hunters and trackers. When they reach this level of training, they are known as a Teckel. Teckel is a wonderful name for this adorable pet.

In the end, naming your puppies is a very personal matter. Discard all of the research because puppies cannot read anyway. If you choose a name that the dog responds to and that you like, that is the ultimate goal.

Part of the fun of naming your new puppy is picking the right name. Puppies learn to respond to the name quickly if you repeat it a few times and reward the pet for coming to you.
