How to choose a good name for a dog?

Choosing the perfect dog name may seem like a difficult task. After all, this is the name that your dog will have for the rest of its life. You want to get it right. So, before looking at ideas for dog names beginning with P, here are some suggestions on choosing a good name that your dog can internalize quickly. Although dogs have the ability to relate virtually any word to themselves - and learn to answer to it - here are some dos and don'ts to keep in mind when naming your dog. Following these tips will help you choose the best and most appropriate name for your dog:

DO

  • Choose a short name. Two syllables are ideal, and three syllables should be the maximum. This will make the name easy for both you and your dog to remember. Monosyllabic names are of course the easiest for your dog to internalize, but they can also lead to confusion with other words, so pick carefully. The ideal dog name should have two syllables.
  • Use "a", "e" or "i" in the name. These vowels give the name a positive ring that dogs respond to, so try include one or more of these vowels in your dog's name.

DON'T

  • Don't choose a name that already belongs another household member. This may seem obvious, but it is neither appropriate nor practical to give your dog the same name as a person in your family or another pet.
  • Don't pick a name that sounds too similar to another word or command. The dog may get confused if its name resembles a commonly used word or sounds like a command. For example, Sid is not the best name for a dog because it sounds too much like the command "sit".

Of course, you have already decided on a dog name starting with the letter P. Now that you know some general tips for choosing the best name for your dog, let's go into the lists of dog names starting with P.

Famous dog names starting with P

Once you have chosen the prefect name for your dog, you must be patient while for the first days while the dog learns to respond to it. Not all dogs learn quickly. In general, they take an average of 5 to 10 days to learn their name, a little longer in the case of an adult dog whose name has been changed. To help your dog learn its name, we recommend saying the name as many times as possible and rewarding the dog with caresses and words of encouragement every time it responds.
