Dog Names - Male & Female Puppy Names

Few aspects of bringing your new family member home are as emotional as picking out your puppy's name. This is not something to rush into lightly. Take your time. Often, you'll find a puppy's behavior will inspire an idea for its name. Therefore, you'll want to wait and see if, over the course of the first few days at home, the perfect name jumps out at you! Of course, many owners choose names that are suggestive of physical features of the dog. This is especially apparent with coat color. Still other owners choose names that are people's names. However, you may prefer a name that seems to fit the breed and the dog's eventual size and shape. Keeping it fairly short or simple will be a big help for friends, family members, and veterinary staff who need to learn your dog's name. Take a look at the names above and see if any strike you as a good match for your puppy. The key thing to remember is to choose a name that seems to fit your puppy and make sure it's a name you like!
