A few tips on naming your dog, though. Try not to make the name too long or complicated. You need to be able to say it easily and you want people to remember it. Your dog will learn his name more quickly if it is shorter and snappy, a couple of syllables is usually the best. Try not to name your dog something that sounds like a command that you might be teaching him.
Look up the meanings of unique dog names if you aren’t sure what they mean. Yes, we all know what star or warthog means, but if you think the name Amber is pretty for your Black Labrador, you might be interested to know that Amber is brownish yellow in color. If you still love it, use it. Remember, it’s your dog, name her what you like.
The most important thing to remember when finding unique dog names is to find a name you love and stick with it. Changing names once they get used to them is confusing to dogs and could cause behavioral problems. It doesn’t matter what dog names you choose, your dog will love you for it.
