Tips for picking a good name for your chihuahua

It’s okay if you don’t have a name for your pet right away. Your dog has its own unique personality, and they may not be obvious right away. If your dog is shy and fearful, giving it a bold name like “Tank” may end up sounding like a prank later.

Another tip is to avoid common names. Names like “Bella” are extremely popular, but these can pose problems at the vet and groomer–especially if you have a common last name. The odds are good if you bring Bella to the groomers, you’ll be specifying which Bella for the rest of their life.

Keep your pet’s name short, so your chihuahua finds it easy to understand. Long names only confuse pets, and they may struggle to learn their new name.

Don’t be afraid to test it out. You may not realize a certain name is embarrassing for you until you are yelling it out the door at the top of your lungs.

You’ll know when the right name comes to you. Your pet’s ears will perk, their tail will wag, and they’ll be glad you found just the right name.
