Alaskan Husky Dog Name Considerations

It pays to keep in mind how your dog will be once it grows up. All puppies are cute, a bit plump, and full of beans. They bumble and stumble around, and are just an overdose of cuteness. But they will grow up, and their cuteness will morph into more mature, streamlined and better coordinated dog. So the name you chose must not only suit then as a puppy, but it must be fitting for when your dog is older. Short names are often best, they are easy to say and your dog can understand a brief, clear order. That is not to say that you shouldn't have a longer name, but just try it out by speaking it out loud and in conjunction with the commands you will train your dog by. A name that sounds like stay (Clay) or down (Hound) can be confusing. When naming an Alaskan Husky, you can look into his heritage; for example a nice strong name would be Mackenzie, after the Mackenzie River that follows sledding trails. Or think of the Alaskan Husky's looks; the moniker Blue would be very fitting for a canine with gorgeous blue eyes. And beside all the above, your dog is special, it deserves a great name. So be kind and considerate - give your dog a name you both will love and enjoy.
