How to choose a name for your dog – useful tips
Options for interesting and funny nicknames for animals are a great many, but some tips will help to significantly narrow down the search for that very name.
It is not enough that the name of the dog is funny, the name of the pet must meet certain criteria. Experts advise choosing short names of one or two syllables – they are easier to remember and to them, dogs respond better.
It is not advised to choose a common word or command as a name, as it can confuse the dog. If you prefer a long and complicated name, think of a short form that will affectionately call your fluffy partner.
