Choosing a name for your dog seems easy enough, but the name you think you like may not “fit” the puppy you picked to come home. Also, other family members may think their “names” are the best name.
Sometimes it’s best to compile a list of names that you and the rest of your family likes and vote on it. Another fun way to choose a name would be to put every name in a hat and draw the name. That keeps things exciting and makes the process easy and fun. If you can’t decide between two names, make one the middle name.
