Considerations When Choosing a Name for a Labradoodle
Unlike humans, there are no limitations to what you can call your new fur baby. In saying this, keep in mind that you may be repeating this name multiple times a day and in public areas as well. Choosing a simple and short name for your Labradoodle can pay off in the long run; especially if they tend to be mischievous.
Just like deciding on a name for a newborn, you should stick to the name you choose once your dog has become familiar with it.
Some owners choose cute names, others choose funny names. The name choice is really up to you and your family. Labradoodles are dogs that are sociable, active, playful and affectionate so many owners choose a name that fits well with their attributes.
The less syllables in the name, the easier it will be to pronounce especially if you end up having children down the road.
How do I Choose the Right Name for my Puppy?
Many owners decide on a name that reflects the attributes or personality of the dog. For example, if your Labradoodle puppy is all black you may decide to call him ‘Shadow’. While many owners name their dog after their appearance, if you choose an appearance name, be sure this aspect won’t change as your dog grows. ‘Fuzzy’ may be a great name for your puppy with thick fur, but what if her fuzz softens into hair?
If you wish to name your dog based upon his personality observe him for a few days before deciding on a name. For instance, you may notice your dog loves to be the center of attention, therefor ‘Kingston’ would be a much more fitting name compared to ‘Cookie’.
Remember that the name you choose for your puppy you will be repeating for the next 10 to 20 years. Short and sweet names are easy for family and friends to remember along with your dog. Owners often like to choose short names that end in a vowel such as ‘Pepsi’ or ‘Kobe’. Choosing a long and complicated name that includes more than one word will confuse your dog.
Once you have decided on a name for your Labradoodle puppy, call to them using it so that they become familiar with their name from a young age. After a couple of days of being familiarized with their name, you may notice your Labradoodle responding to it.
Labradoodle Names to Avoid
When choosing a name for your Labradoodle it is best to avoid names that sound like a command. Such as ‘Bow’ as it is very close to the word ‘No’. Always choose a name that can be easily pronounced by all family members and that is appropriate to pronounce in public places.
