Good Dog Names
Picking out the perfect name for a dog or puppy is a lot of fun. Here are some things to keep in mind when naming a Labrador Retriever puppy.
Dogs learn short names faster than long names.
Dogs with 1 or 2 syllable names are easier to train.
Many experts feel that a name with 2 syllables which ends in a vowel (like Lassie) is easiest to teach and to use for calling a dog.
Consider the pup’s personality when choosing a name.
Use the dog’s name often during happy times, but not while punishing the dog.
New Dog Moms and Doggie Daddies should pick names they like. The pup will have this name for a long time.
