A Dog’s Name Matters
A dog’s name is important for many reasons. The main reason is this is the sound/name he will hear that identifies him with you and your family. Your dog’s name is the signal when you’d like him to respond in some way. In other words, when you call him, your fur baby will know to respond in some way.
A dog’s name is more than just an identifier, though. His name will have some meaning to you, either positive or negative. Keep in mind that dogs are sensitive to tone, intent, and more. If you choose a name with a negative meaning or connotation, your dog will know.
So, when choosing a name for your dog, be sure to choose a name that has a positive meaning or connotation. Then be sure to choose a unique name.
Choosing a Unique Name for Your Dog
Giving your dog a unique name keeps him from being confused. Think of it from his perspective. What if you’re at the dog park or some other noisy space and you need to call your fur baby. If you choose a name such as “Jake,” you’ll have 10 (or more) dogs answering your call!
