You are getting a new puppy and often the first thing people will ask is – what are you going to call them? Gone are the days when the top female dogs’ names were more likely to be Lady, Bessie or Lucky, now anything goes when it comes to naming your new pup.
Often owners decide on one name for their dog and when they bring it home the name doesn’t fit the dog – and is swiftly changed to another before the training begins!
Angela Fagan CEO for Trust My Pet Sitter “There is something wonderful about naming your new puppy, so make sure the name you choose reflects your puppies personality, look etc”
What makes a good female dog name?
Only you can decide what name to call your female dog. Perhaps you’ve already got one in mind a female character from a movie such as Belle from Beauty and the Beast, a favorite human name, an old fashioned dog name or even one you created yourself!
One thing to bear in mind is to choose a female dog name that doesn’t sound similar to a training command, to save you and your dog a lot of confusion during the early days! Names like ‘Kit’ may be confused with ‘Sit’, ‘Clay’ with ‘Stay’- you get the idea. Also, consider names that may cause members of the family embarrassment like a neighbor whose son is often found hollering after ‘Mrs Pipkins’.
