Some Tips In Picking the Perfect Name
If you are finding it hard to choose a name for your pup, it might be comforting to know that you are not alone.
When in the process, you shouldn’t forget that you can get inspiration from a variety of sources, such as your favorite books, movies, celebrities, or even food!
For instance, you might want to call your dog Yoda or Willow. Try to choose one that suits your dog’s aspect or personality, and ensure it “suits” your pup.
Also, don’t forget that a dog’s name must be relatively short and not confusing for your pups. A short one will be easier to memorize for dogs, but also to understand whenever you are calling them.
A dog will more likely immediately recognize his or her name after some training when it is one that has few sounds.
You should avoid choosing a name for your French Bulldog that is too similar to other common commands such as “sit” or “down.” When words sound alike, your dog might get confused. Reducing confusion will improve your dog’s reaction to training.
Finally, consider applying a “backdoor test” to whatever name you selected before making a decision.
Just as it sounds, the practice consists of standing on your back boor (or front, it doesn’t matter) and call out the name. Imagine yourself calling the dog for dinner or telling him off.
Think about whether it is too long, and if you like the sound of it. Try to say it out loud and pay attention to your dog’s reaction.
The Bottom Line
Choosing your French Bulldog’s name is not as easy as it sounds, but you shouldn’t feel sad if you can’t seem to find one! Allow your creativity to flow, take inspiration from the things you love the most, and make use of our list to get some additional ideas to assist you in the process of finding the perfect name for your cute puppy!
