Air Bud Inspired Dog Name Considerations

When you get a new poochie, you have to get many things such as some fun toys, tasty treats, healthy kibble, a soft and cozy bed, a leash and collar, a veterinarian, and a name that fits your pupster perfectly. While some people already have the name picked out before they get their new fur buddy, as they do with human children, many people find it better to give their doggo a name according to their color, size, breed, or personality. Your pup doesn’t care if you take a few days or even weeks to get to know them before you choose their moniker so go ahead and spend some quality time together first. 

For example, if your canine kid is fast, you could name them Flash or Comet; if you have an orange pupster, you could name them Peach; and if your furry friend is gray or black, Pepper would be a furific name. Dribble is a fun name for a drooling dog, Old Blue is great for a blue pooch, and Flop is pawesome for a canine who is always flopping on the ground. Also, Bounce would be an adorable name for an energetic dog, and Double seems fitting for a plump pup. Here are some more of our faves.
