Inspired by TV Shows Dog Name Considerations

Choosing the right name for your dog is a big job. Naming your beloved canine companion is much like naming your child, and choosing the right moniker is important. The name you choose will stick with your pet from 10 to 15 years or longer, so you need to choose one that will make sense for years to come. When using a TV show for inspiration, think about your favorite shows and characters and why they are your favorites. Are there certain traits that you like? Does your dog share those traits? Think about any negative connotations the character or show may have. If there is a chance the name could be seen as offensive, you may want to choose a different one. Remember that the name you select will be the one you have to give the vet, groomer, etc., so it’s best to choose something non-offensive. With that in mind, keep reading to discover some possible TV-inspired dog names.
