Yorkshire terrier dog names

Yorkshire puppies are one of the cutest things ever! Do you agree? With their lion puffed hair, pointed ears and sweet expression, how could you not just fall in love? Yorkshire terriers kind of remind us of small cuddly bears.
However, that said, it is important to remember that these dogs are not toys. Therefore, if you’ve just adopted a Yorkshire terrier and live in a house with children, it’s very important that they respect and understand this.

On the other hand, many Yorkshire carers are overprotective over their Yorkies due to their small size and apparent agility. Sure, it’s important to offer all dogs love, care and protection, but we do not recommend giving into all of its wants. If you spoil your Yorkie too much, you can unintentionally promote certain behavioral problems, such as aggressiveness or disobedience; the product of bad socialization and erroneous perception of training. It’s VITAL that your Yorkshire terrier receives proper education and socialization with other animals and people. This in addition to necessary physical/mental exercise and walks.

Yorkshire terriers are extremely active dogs and have an insatiable appetite. This dog breed has, in addition, become prone to obesity as they can easily consume more than their own weight. For more, we recommend taking a look at our article where we discuss how to care for a Yorkshire terrier.

With all of this said, if you just adopted a Yorkshire terrier or are thinking about it, first things first, what are you going to name it? Here are our tips we recommend taking into consideration when naming any dog breed:

  1. Dogs internalize short names much faster, (two or three syllables, at most).
  2. Do you not name your dog after every day objects or people. For example, although our Yorkshire may remind you of a cookie, if you eat a lot of cookies, you will confuse its learning process.
  3. Take your dog’s own character and persona into consideration.

Changing a dog's name after adoption

If you’ve just adopted an adult Yorkshire terrier, you may be wondering if it’s a good idea to change your adopted dog’s name. I mean, can you change an adult dog’s name? Yes, you can, but this requires patience. If you know the dogs first name, we recommend that you simply modify it instead of changing it completely. If you can, try and stick to the same name sound and length. For example, if your newly adopted Yorkshire puppy is called "Gus" and you want to change its name, opt for similar names such as "Mus", "Rus", etc.

If you don’t know your new dog’s first name, you need to teach it it’s new name as if it were still a puppy learning. To help you dot his, take a look at our article where we tell you how to teach a dog its name.
