Dogs need a name. We have to call them to protect them from stupidity. And we want to say hello to them when we come home from work. Besides, names are not just smoke and sound, on the contrary, they shape our personality …
Whether this is also the case with dogs, of course, nobody can answer. But we can assume that dogs like bitches or even puppies do not mind if you give them a nickname.
And such a name must be well thought out. A matching dog name must
* reflect the character * match the appearance * sound good and * be as short as possible
It’s not so easy to see at first glance what kind of dog you’re dealing with when you meet him or her for the first time. (e.g., at the shelter, etc.)
Since dog names are typically given quite early, it is even more important to deal with the animal really, so that you get to know him or her properly.
It could e.g. It’s good that the popular name of the dog, RAMBO, does not fit the sleepy Bernhardian hybrid because it is anything but daredevil. Not that that’s typical of the breed, but you never know! It would be fatal to assume that dogs have no character. They have one, just like us.
The right name has to feel right. Since you can not really ask the skin wearer for his opinion, you have to worry extra, without being distracted by unrealistic fantasies.
