Top 10 Potty Training Secrets...

If you're looking for dog names by breed to match your breed specific pup, then this page offers name lists that we felt might be a better match for a given breed than the more general names offered on our site.

As an example, we had a hard time visualizing the name Fifi on a German Shepherd, while we thought it would be a better match on a French Poodle. We didn’t think the name Baxter or Barney would work on a Poodle, but thought it would be a better name fit for a Beagle.

Also, there are puppy names out there that sound biggish or sound smallish, so we felt they would fit better on a big or small breed. As an example, the name Peanut or Gumball on a small Pomeranian might work, while Brutus, or Thunder might work on a larger breed like a German Shepherd, or Rottweiler.
