Choosing the best name for your dog

The most basic tip to choose the perfect name for your dog is to find a simple, meaningful name that's easy to pronounce. Since Star Wars characters are usually short and they're familiar for everyone, a Star Wars name will be perfect.

It's always best to choose a name that reflects your dog's looks or personality. If you have a Shih tzu, the name “Chewie” from “Chewbaca” would be perfect! On the other hand, if you have a completely black dog, you could go for the name “Vadar”.

You could also choose the name based on, not on their physical characteristics, but their personality. If your dog is a female and very active and curious, you could go for the name “Rey”. Or if your dog is shy and follows you around, perhaps you can go for “R2” or “Jar-Jar”.

A dog's name is a key tool in their socialization process and training, so their name will not only need to be attractive to the ear, but also practical. It shouldn't be longer than 2 or 3 syllables long, nor sound similar to words you will use everyday.
