Find a Popular or Unique Dog Name

Choosing your dog’s name is not an easy decision. Here are some of the most popular dog names in 2012 and some ideas to help you to think of a unique or cute name for your dog.

There are a few things to bear in mind when naming your dog. Try to pick a name that your dog or puppy will easily recognise and that will not be confused with a basic command such as Sit, Stay, Down, Come or Fetch. If you have more than one dog in your home, select names that start with different letters and sound significantly different. Dogs tend to respond better to shorter names and it’s easier to shout out a one or two syllable word clearly in the park!
