need puppy name

Recommended Posts

Just got a new puppy, Golden Retriever.  Need a boy name.  He'll be coming home on the 13th so we still have a little time to decide.

 

Please nothing Asian.

 

Maybe something from Breaking Bad:

 

Jessie

Hank

Heisenberg

 

Saw something on the internet today which prompted me to post this.  I figured one of you could come up with something good.

Dogs respond better to names that are simple and sound like a single command. Put multiple syllables together and they get confused as to what you are saying. All the extra sounds are just for you, not them so when you are calling them they respond to the first thing they hear. If the name is complex they may just ignore you altogether.

 

Try making sounds that are sharp and clear when you yell them because you know they are going to bolt down the street if they get out and need a sharp command to get their attention. Soft consonants or syllables fall on deaf ears for dogs.

 

High pitched sounds are happy sounds, you hear women talk baby talk to puppies all the time in that upper octave fingernails on a chalkboard sound and the mutts lap it up. Names that sound like you are happy with your dog makes them happy. Golden Retrievers love to be happy so don't go baritone with the name like wolf or boomer. It shouldn't sound like a bark or intimidating to them.

 

Love this puppy to death, never hit it with your hand, never make any punishment protracted or delayed they have zero memory for doing something wrong 5 minutes after the fact. And for God's sake never, ever, ever think they want to be a vegetarian.
