Traits of Bull Terriers

Bull Terriers are strong dogs. they have short hair and very developed muscles, which make them look very robust and even aggressive. Nonetheless, this is a human trait; aggressive dogs are almost exclusively the result of bad training or mistreatment from their owners. Still, Bull Terriers are classified as potentially dangerous dogs in some countries.

While Bull Terriers require discipline and a good training, they have stable temperaments and they're usually gentle with people, as well as loyal, brave and active. They are usually very playful and close to their owners; Bull Terriers ask to be paid constant attention and they hate being alone.

All these characteristics of the Bull Terrier breed can be very useful to choose a good name for our new pet.

Why is naming a pet important?

Choosing a name for a pet is not a trivial thing; it can make the training process easier. That process should begin when the dog is four months old. However, the dog's name should be used as soon as possible so that they learn to recognize it early on.

If you want your Bull Terrier to learn their name quickly, it's better if it's not too short - monosyllabic - or too long - more than three syllables. Moreover, its pronunciation should not resemble any basic orders, since that might confuse the dog.
