Most Popular Dog Names on Talent Hounds
Did you recently get a new puppy or dog? How exciting!
But first things first…. Choosing a name for your dog can be a challenge. Maybe not as much of a challenge as naming the Royal babies HRH Prince George Alexander Louis and HRH Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, but you want to find a name that fits your dog’s personality and one you like (and perhaps one your spouse likes too if you were on Facebook when our wonderful Carrie got her new Puppy Bella)!
Observe your dog for a few days and see if his or her personality or behaviour or appearance suggest a name. This beautiful border collie is rightfully named Smarty for his bright intelligence!
Short simple names of one or two syllables are often easiest for dogs to learn and respond to. A name that is too long or difficult to say may confuse your dog.
Avoid names that sound like commands. A name like “Joe” might sound like “no” when called.
