How can a site like this better assist the caring owner such as yourself to choose the puppy name that best fits your pal? With so many different ones to choose from, won’t any one do? Well, considering that it’s been estimated that over the course of your pals lifetime, it will be called, yelled and cooed it over 30,000 times, it’s important that the best possible one be chosen the first time.

That’s why when looking for creative names for puppies, we suggest you consider…

Your dogs personality... Is it energetic?…or laid back? Some breeds are naturally one way or the other, it’s like comparing the polar opposite Chihuahua with the Mastiff. One breeds all over the place while the other takes it’s sweet time getting there.

Your pals coloration... If you own a black or brown pooch how about a title that compliments it’s color? Maybe like Twilight, Kahlua, Coco, or Espresso for a dark colored canine that’s full of energy. It’s been said that blondes have more fun, if your buddy is this color why not give it a name after blondes that definitely had more fun, like Marilyn (Monroe) or Paris (Hilton)?

Consider your pals size... A biggish sounding title for a big dog, smallish one for a small one. Like Denali, Yukon, or Sumo for a large dog. Smallish names for smaller breeds can be Peanut, Cookie, or Bon Bon for a sweet, small brown pooch.
