How To Choose A Girl Dog Name

A female puppy’s name is an important part of her training and socialization. It can be difficult to think of a dog name that you think fits the personality of your dog. Here is some helpful advice on dog naming from experts in the field:

  • A dog’s name should be short and easy to pronounce.
  • Harder consonants are easier for dogs to hear over sibilant sounds, like “Gracie” or “Bailey.”
  • Avoid naming your pup something that sounds similar to a command word. Names like “Bo” are very similar to “no” which can make it difficult for your puppy to learn commands.
  • Using a dog’s name lets the pooch know what’s coming next is meant for her, so always use it in a positive context like giving treats or telling her she did a good job.
  • Consider giving your dog a name that is different from any other family member’s name. If your son is “Manny,” and the dog is named “Annie,” there may be confusion later on about who is being called to come in.
  • Take some time to understand the personality of your new puppy before you rush into a name, but don’t take too long as you should  start getting your new dog used to her new name as soon as possible!

2022 has seen a few different female dog names that have been trending over the past 12 months. Many new dog parents are looking at mainstream media such as TV shows, movies, music, artists, podcasters, social media influencers, and more when picking a name for their dog. 

Below are a few of the female dog names that are cute and popular this year:

  • Bella
  • Luna
  • Charlie (short for Charlotte)
  • Lucy
  • Bailey
  • Daisy
  • Sadie
  • Lola
  • Molly
  • Stella

Finding the best girl dog names for your new puppy can be a difficult task, and we hope we made it just a bit easier by giving you choices!. Whether you name your new pup after a Stranger Things character or your favorite football player, it is important that the name will be easy for your new puppy to understand and learn.
