Bernese Mountain Dog Name Considerations

In the case of a large dog like the Bernese Mountain Dog, it is important that the name you give your dog will still suit them when they mature. While people do adjust to unsuitable pet names, why should you not just get it right in the beginning? Don't rush into naming a new pet. Take the time to get to know your friend and then you will be in a great position to match them with a name. You can use their build to find a name, such as Bear for a large, solid dog. Or you can use their appearance for inspiration, such as Prince for a strikingly aristocratic dog. 

Even the color of a dog may be used to find a name, such as Nero for a black dog, or Alaska for a white dog. You can use bodies of water or location names for unique names, for example, Michigan or Yukon. Is your dog quiet and reserved? A title such as River may be the perfect fit. Are they always on the go? Try Vegas or Ocean. These considerations may be just what you need to help you decide on a name for your Bernese Mountain Dog.
