Some Suggestions For naming Dogs

  1. Don't name your dog with the name similar to the name of the dog of your neighbor. If you do, you will face many problems like - the other dog might come and sleep with you if you just take the name of your dog with love, the two dogs can end up at same place at same time resulting in a fight.
  2. Don't name your dogs on the name of your family members. This might result in a homely fight and thus affecting the cordial relations.
  3. Try and see which name your dog likes. Just murmur few names in front of your dog and note down the one by hearing which the doggy wags its tail the most. It is a clear sign that the dog wants that name.
  4. Avoid naming dogs after the names of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. Someone might file a case against you blaming you for hurting his/her religious feelings if you do so.
  5. Don't you ever try to change the name of dog after few years of naming ceremony. Just like you, dogs take great pride in their name. Changing name of dogs can create whole sort of problems for them, including their relationships with other dogs. Although they might still use their nose to smell pick the correct buddy.
  6. Take great care for naming the dogs, especially if you have bought the street dog. The street dogs usually don't like pet dogs. If the street dog hear a name of a foe he might loose his temper and attack you.
