Choosing The Right Name For Your Manor Lake Australian Labradoodle

Tips On Choosing A Pet Name

While perhaps not the same as naming a child, some serious thought should still be put into choosing a name for the family pet. Below are some tips to consider when choosing a name for your four-legged family member:
  • Animals respond better to one or two syllable names, so keep it short.
  • Remember that this is a name you will be calling out, so make it easy to say and something you are comfortable with.
  • It is best to avoid names that sound like commands such as “no” (Joe…).
  • You may want to wait a few days to see what your pet’s personality is like before coming up with a name.
  • Take into consideration your pet’s size, breed and gender.
  • Don’t give your pet a name with a negative or aggressive meaning; they just might live up to this.
  • Avoid names that sound similar to other members of the family.
  • Use a name that is slightly uncommon. Avoid names like Fido, Spot and Fluffy to avoid confusion when calling your pet in public places.
  • If there are children in the family it is a good idea to let them participate in naming the new pet.
  • Brainstorm and write down possible pet names.
If you have adopted an adult pet that already has a name it is best to stick with this name or change it just slightly to avoid confusion.
