How to Name Your Dog

How you decide upon the best name for your pup is up to you, but if you’re having trouble narrowing the search down, there are some ways to go about it.

Many people choose a name based on whether their dog is male or female, which simplifies things. Others might pick a name referencing some aspect of their canine’s appearance, like “Spot” for a Dalmatian or “Hershey” for a brown dog. And some go with a name based on their dog’s personality—“Moxie” for a particularly feisty pup or “Diesel” for a dog that’s incredibly cool.

No matter how you go about looking for a name for your canine, though, you can’t go wrong!
