How to choose a German Shepherd name
Here are some of the things that you need to do when you are about to name your German Shepherd:
- Do not follow trends or what other people are doing.
- Never give your GSD a name based on his negative traits.
- Always make sure that the name is simple and clear.
- Do not choose a name that will end up embarrassing you.
Naming a dog can be quite a hassle for some people something that I have personally experienced when I was trying to name my first puppy as a kid.
I could not come up with the right name to give him. It was as if all the good names had been taken and I could not find one. But I ended up naming him Blackie because he has a black coat and I thought it was good for him.
Now, I do not want you to go through the same struggle that I went through so hear me out.
One of the key things that you need to do when you are naming your dog is keeping it as simple as possible. Choose a dog name that starts with a distinct and sharp sound like D or T.
Pick a dog name that your pooch can easily remember when you are trying to call him/her.
Avoid names that sound like some of the basic training commands, like ‘Joe’ which sounds almost similar to ‘No.’
Look at the heritage where your dog comes from and pick things up from there.
Another good idea is using a name that reminds you of one of your good childhood memories.
But the best thing you can dog is giving your pooch a name that goes hand in hand with his personality and temperament.
