Introduction

Oh, those billowy and flowy long ears and how we love them so much! Luckily, there are many breeds that have this lovely characteristic. For ear-loving people, there are hounds, spaniels, setters, and others that are choices for many. Long-eared breeds are generally loving and gentle, and you will enjoy stroking their soft, velvety ears. With long-eared dogs, though, there are some consideration owners must take to keep the ears clean and dry inside. Your veterinarian will recommend an ear-cleaning solution to use to keep them this way. This can help prevent infections. Also, remember, since the ears are long, it is important to lift them up and take a look inside for any mites or dirt.

Floppy Ear Dog Name Considerations

If you are thinking about acquiring a long-eared pup, congratulations to you! These dogs are very easy on the eyes and they are so fun to watch them in their daily lives as their "ears hang low". There are many name considerations for these furry friends, such as Floppy, Dumbo, and Bugs for a male. For a female, you may consider Amelia (after Amelia Earhart), Velvet, or Silky. 

You may also consider naming your dog by just looking at his face and droopy ears on the side. Names that may fit are Marmaduke, Eeyore, Beuford, or Droopy. Long-eared breeds tend to have a friendly personality, so you may wish to consider a dog name that fits this characteristic. 

Your long-eared dog may be so special that they have another characteristic that you wish to point out in a name. Either way, by spending a few days with your droopy-eared companion, the perfect name will come to you. You can ask family and friends to suggest names as well. Making it a fun event will make it very special for everyone involved in your dog's life. Also, a human-name will be just as good for your family member, such as Susie, Maggie, or Fran for a female and Bo, Hank, or Demont for a male. Good luck and enjoy those ears!
