Choosing the right name for your dog is a very important decision for new dog owners.

Choosing the right name for your dog is a very important decision for new dog owners. The first thing that most people ask when meeting your dog is "What's your dog's name?" How people respond to your dog (and in turn, how your dog responds to people) will forever be linked with the name that you choose. So, as with naming children, great care should be taken when conferring a name upon your pooch.

At Pup Life, we recommend choosing a dog name that presents your dog in the most positive light. We like classic dog names that evoke feelings of nostalgia and the charm of the past. Mabel, Lucy, Jake and Maxwell - dog names like these lend a human air and yet they avoid being classified as trendy or as a passing fancy.

Names with negative connotations ("Killer, Fang, etc") should be avoided, as they can put your dog at an immediate disadvantage. Consciously or unconsciously people often respond to negative names negatively and you might needlessly damage your dog's reputation. So when choosing the right name for your dog, think positive!

Here are some of our favorite dog names. Have some favorite dog names of your own? E-mail us your dog name suggestions, and maybe we will add them to the list!

After you have chosen the best dog name you can, make sure to Teach Your Dog To Recognize Her Name using positive reinforcement.
