How to choose a name for your black dog?

Choosing a name for your dog is not a decision to be taken lightly. After all, it’s a name he’ll have for the rest of his life and that you’ll use many times a day. However, don’t overthink it and follow these tips:

  • Observe your dog: sometimes the name can be chosen based on his personality, size, or other traits. If you see that he is very active and loves to run around, you might call him “Flash” or “Bolt”. That’s why it’s important to get to know your dog and observe his behavior if you want to choose a name that suits him.
  • Avoid names that are too long or difficult to pronounce: your dog will have less trouble recognizing a short name. If you choose a long name, you can always shorten it later.
  • Remember that your dog will grow up: Even if your dog seems small when he’s 3 months old, remember that he will grow up. So if you call him “small” and he’s 60 cm tall and weighs 40 kg after two years, the name won’t fit him too well anymore.
