Fast Animal Dog Name Considerations

There are many means and methods of choosing the perfect name for your new pet, including naming your new addition after another beloved pet or family member, choosing a specific meaning as a basis for your dog’s name or choosing a name based on their position in your family. It is often helpful to pick a name that your dog responds naturally to, and a name that is difficult for you or other household members to remember or consistently pronounce may cause some confusion on the part of your pet, possibly delaying bonding or training times. Many people may choose to name their dog after speedy animals, either to highlight their speed or in the hopes to improve it and if so they have several options available. Some individuals may be able to narrow down their choices by their specific canine’s physical appearance, choosing a name like Peregrine or Hummingbird for a smaller dog, or Colt for one with long legs, while other people may choose to highlight their dog’s personality instead, choosing a name like Gazelle for a dog that is as graceful as they are fast, Cheetah for a dog that limits itself to short sprints, or Shark for a dog that never wants to quit swimming.
