How to choose a name for a Golden Retreiver

You can consider reflecting the Golden Retriever's physical or behavioral characteristics in the name you pick. However, it can be fun to play with its opposite characteristics as well: for example, you can call a cream Golden Retriever "Noir".

What you must definitely pay attention to is that the name you pick fits its main function: to help us socialize and train your dog.

  • The name of your Golden Retriever should not be too short. Discard any monosyllabic names.
  • The name of your Golden Retriever should not be too long, that is, it shouldn't be longer than three syllables.
  • Avoid any name whose sound might be confused with a basic dog command such as "sit".
