How to name a puppy boy?

So, a puppy appeared in the house, and all households now have only one question in their head: "How to call him?" Of course, the moment is very important, because the name is given for life, and to retrain the dog, changing his mind, it will be difficult. Many people ask - are there any rules that need to be followed when naming a puppy? Of course, there are no strict rules established, but some recommendations are still worth adhering to. Let's see how best to call a puppy boy.

How to call a dog: useful tips

  • Short name. Dogs respond better to monosyllabic names, so it’s better not to invent a long name. Ideal nicknames - Rex, Rich, Tim, Terry, Baston, Charlie, etc. But, of course, the nickname Maximilian will be very difficult for a dog. However, owners of pedigree dogs with a pedigree love to invent something in this style. Well, you can use the name Maximilian at the show, but at home try to call your pet shorter, for example, Maxi.
  • Avoid consonance with the teams.If you are going to train a dog, do not use as a name for it words that are consonant with the basic commands - sit, lie, aport, fas, fu, etc.
  • Euphony. The owners love to invent funny names for their dogs, for example, Riot, but imagine how you will look in the park, shouting "Riot! Riot! Riot". The same applies to the use of human names: the cries of "Boris! Boris!" will sound, again, very strange.
  • Remember - the puppy will grow up. Any puppy is very cute and funny, and therefore it is difficult to restrain himself and not call him by some appropriate sweet name like “Fuzzy”, “Kid”, etc. However, this should not be done, especially if the dog is a large breed, the name will simply cease to match your pet with age.

Hopefully, these tips will help you come up with a great name, and if the desired nickname still does not come, use, for example.
