A Word of Warning: When naming your dog you might want to make sure that none of your friends or immediate family have the same name. While it could be viewed as very flattering, they might take offence. If they say ” you named your DOG after me?” – don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Similarly my name is Phoebe and through out my life people have said to me “Oh I love that name I have a cat/dog/horse called Phoebe”. The only response to that is “ohh” followed by a confused face.

Here are a few Do’s and Don’ts:

DO:
Choose a name that you like. You will be using it all the time, so you should enjoy the sound of it.
Pick a one or two syllable name. Longer names could be difficult for your dog to understand.
Try out the new name for a few days and see how your dog responds.

DON’T:
Use a name that sounds like a command you plan to teach your dog. You’ll end up confusing your dog and yourself.
Name your dog something that others may find offensive or embarrassing. Your dog’s name is as social and as frequently used as your name, so don’t name your dog something that others may find offensive or embarrassing. Otherwise the joke will be on you.
Pick a complicated name like Sir Fluffy Von Wagglestein unless you plan to actually use a simplified call name like “Sir” or “Fluffy.”

Above all make sure your pet is covered with pet insurance. That way even if you run into trouble with the name you won’t run into trouble with your wallet.
