Tips for choosing a good name for a dog

The choice of the name is usually the first decision we make when we adopt a dog, so it is important to spend the time that it deserves as well as knowing some recommendations. In general, it is advisable to choose a short name for dogs, that do not exceed three syllables so that your pet can learn it more easily. Likewise, to ensure success, it is essential that the chosen name does not sound like words used to learn orders or common commands. If not, the animal could get confused and not relate the name with him.

But, within the range of possibilities offered by the previous indications, how to choose the best name? Next we offer you a complete list of dog names that start with A, some cuter, others more beautiful and others that have a fun ring to them. In this way, you can relate the personality of your new friend to choose the name that adapts better to them, by their physical appearance, color or facial features. The important thing is that you select one that you really like and, above all, one that the family knows how to pronounce properly, since, as we said, it is paramount not confuse the animal.
