Rules for choosing a name for a dog
If a puppy is acquired from parents with a pedigree, then it already has a definite nickname, which will be indicated first in the puppy metric, after - in its pedigree. This is due to the fact that puppy parent owners must name all puppies in litter by one letter - for example, Pearls, Geneva, Jacques. But the new owner can give his pet a pet name, which he likes more and call his little pet that way.
For this reason, it is better to wait until the puppy moves home - look at it, evaluate its psychological and specific features, based on what and pick a nickname. So, the playful and mischievous puppy will not suit the name Baron, since his character will be in disarray with the nickname. And, on the contrary, a calm and melancholic baby should not be called dynamic names - Joker, Balamut, Fantik and the like.
For puppies, boys of small breeds should be chosen names, guided by such rules:
- The name should not be excessively long. The ideal nickname consists of 2-3 syllables that the dog simply perceive.
- The best nicknames - consisting of a minimum number of letters, they are most easily remembered by a dog. These include Jacques, Roy, Archie, Wolf.
- It is desirable that consonants such as g, b, f, c, p, z, l, c, m. Such sounds are well perceived by the dog and it is easier to accustom to the nickname.
The owner should choose the nickname that he likes and will be well perceived by the dog, then there will be no problems in teaching the puppy to his name and communication of the owner and dog will be as pleasant as possible.
Variants of nicknames
Names that are suitable for puppies of small breeds can be taken from a variety of sources. For example, a dog can be called, taking the name you like from:
- literary work
- from show business and so on.
The names of cartoon characters are great for little dogs. If the owner of the puppy has children, they can be attracted to the joint choice of nicknames. The most popular options are:
Mini-dogs are suited for cute names such as Pusya, Masya, Baby, Bulya, Zhuzha. The advantage of small breeds is that the dog will not become huge over time and the name will still fit her.
Despite the abundance of nicknames, there are clear favorites among them (in alphabetical order):
How to call a dog boy
As a rule, if your puppy is taken from well-born parents, then he already has there is a "legal nickname". It is difficult formed from the names of mom and dad, as well as the name of the nursery. In addition, puppies of one litter are usually called starting from one letter, for example, Tobby, Tagir, Tilda and the rest in the same spirit.
This is not always a convenient name and you can easily choose a home option. At competitions, the "legitimate" name and nickname that you gave can be written with a dash.
Do not choose a nickname in advance
It would seem, why not choose a nickname before the puppy in the house. Moreover, it often happens that you have attracted some dog's name from the movie, and you already dream to call it a future pet. It may happen that The invented name does not quite fit the puppy - in size, color and temperament. Soon you will feel discomfort, and the delight of the chosen nickname will grow into discomfort.
For example, dreaming about a puppy, you want to give him the noble name Baron, and what if the dog turns out to be anything but a royal character? A playful, smart and mischievous puppy may not give a sign of noble composure and endurance. It would be called "Fantik" or "Joy."
Each dog has qualities that are unique to her, and even puppies of the same litter are very different. Not to mention the fact that the nickname should be related to the breed.
Little miracle in the house
What lovely these tiny lumps of happiness, and I want to cuddle him. And when it comes to name, then come to mind Pusya, Zhuzha, Masya, Bulya and other diminutive names. But a big dog can grow out of Pusi and then such a name makes people laugh.
But in our case we are talking about a nickname for small dogs of miniature breeds, such as pikines, lap-dog, york, toy terrier and other “toy” dogs. They are created for love and tenderness, therefore such names suit them perfectly. Moreover, nicknames can be universal, like a nickname for a boy’s dog or for a girl, for example, Knop, Mini, Fifi, etc.
Very often, dogs give birth as a friend or even a child. And the dog copes with these tasks better than other animals - a faithful friend and gentle child. But no need to call the dog a human name. On the court, this will create double-digit situations, and the rules of good form indicate that the dog has a dog's nickname.
So, we can first say that the boy’s dog’s name should be chosen on the basis of several logical rules:
- correlating it with the puppy's personality,
- expecting that the puppy will sooner or later become a mature dog,
- it should not be a human name (at least not used in your country).
However, there are other rules based on the characteristics of canine hearing and training.
Phonetics and nickname
Do you know that dogs perceive only the first two sounds by ear? In accordance with this, it becomes obvious that the dog does not need a long nickname, because all the same, it will hear only the first two syllables. There are other rules with which it is desirable to get acquainted:
- Sounds. Dogs respond best to names with voiced consonants "B, c, d, d, f, z, l, m, n, p, c". Names with these letters are comforts to remember, besides, the dog will be able to quickly respond to the ringing word,
- Minimum letters. The dog responds best to a short name - one or two syllables. So, Bucks, Roy, Jaco just perfect names both in length and in the presence of voiced sounds.
Nickname and training
And small dogs and big ones can and should be taught to elementary teams. This is convenient and useful for the nature of the pet, because you do not want to keep a rude creature? Then you need to consider a few rules:
- Nickname length and reaction. A long name can be a stumbling block in cases where a lightning reaction is needed. While you will reprimand “Waldemar, phew!”, you dog can already make the intended. The same applies to Barberry, Richmond, Brunnhilde, etc.
- Nickname or team? If you want to train your pet to carry out commands, then make sure that the name does not resemble the main ones. For example, Sedrik or Sid or quite good names for boys' dogs in terms of phonetics, but they are very similar to the Sit command. Still, it is better to exclude names that coincide with the team, otherwise confusion will complicate the training.
It remains only to proceed to the direct selection of the nickname.

In the 18-19 centuries, there was a boom with dogs and there were names in fashion that reflected the characteristics of a dog, such as Bite, Robbery, Scare etc. But in the 20th century it was the wind to call the dogs by the names of the Greek pantheon, for example, Hermes, Zeus, Antey and others.
Wartime ousted fashion for mythological names, replacing them with more realistic Faithful, Friend, Hero, Brave, and names given in honor of geographical features, for example, Baikal, Amur and others. Squirrels and Strelki, as well as various Knocks, Ryzhiki became popular after the famous space flights with dogs.
