One of the first things we think about before adopting a dog is always: "What will I call them?" We recommend trying to think of their most striking: physical characteristics, personality traits or behavior, to see what kind of name will fit them best.

Choosing a name for your new furry friend can always prove to be a little challenging. Many people believe that in order to choose the perfect name, this name cannot be confusing for the dog. Therefore, the shorter the better! The reason for this, is that dogs tend to memorize words better when they have fewer syllables. Here at AnimalWised we have decided to help you, by presenting you with dog names with only three letters. We have over 100 options of cute, beautiful, fun and original names, so take your pick.

How to choose a name for a dog

As we have already mentioned, the best name for a dog is one that has no more than two syllables. If you really want to, you can choose a name with three syllables, but understand that this will be more difficult for your dog to recall. Also, it is important to remember that this name cannot be a colloquial word commonly used in the house, like; coffee, as it will only confuse your dog. And although it may seem obvious, it is important to keep in mind that all family members must say the dog's name in the same way.

Another very useful piece of advice when choosing the best name for your dog, is to opt for words that start with a strong consonant and end in a vowel. Why? This is because both dogs and cats have a much more developed sense of hearing, so they have the ability to pick up many more sounds than we do. For this reason, the words initiated by a strong consonant capture the attention of these animals more, in turn facilitating memorization.

Once you have chosen a suitable name for your dog, it is essential to avoid: shouting, punishments or reprimands. If you shout a dogs name, it will relate and associate it to negative stimuli. Either way, we strongly discourage this type of negative training, as it is cruel and counterproductive to an animal's development.
