Tips for Choosing Your Puppy's Name

Tips for Choosing His Name

Choosing puppy names is pretty straightforward, but it would be wise to bear a few things in mind when running through the list of names:

  • It's good to choose a name that suit's your puppy's personality, but don't be tempted to give him too 'girlie' a name simply because he's a cute little Cocker Spaniel puppy.

    It won't be too long before he grows up to be an adult male so ask yourself if his new name will still suit him when he's no longer a puppy?

  • Why not consider something that sounds a little more macho? For example, Hannibal, Butch, Solomon, or Tiger - especially if he's a tough or courageous little puppy.

  • If your Cocker has any particular traits or characteristics, that stand out, why not use those traits for your inspiration? For example, if he loves to dig, why not name him Digger?

    If he's constantly bounding about, what about Tigger? I'm sure you get the picture!

  • You could even use the colour or texture of your dog's coat as the basis of his name if you wanted to. If your puppy's coat is golden in colour, why not name him Sandy, Ginger, or Goldie?

  • Keep your puppy's name short and snappy - a couple of syllables is about right.

    Keeping his name to two syllables will make it much easier to communicate with your puppy when training. It will also be easier when using the recall command and he'll learn his name much quicker too.

Good luck!
