Introduction

The Keeshond is a beautiful dog with plush thick fur that has two layers to protect them from the ice and cold. They seem to be forever smiling, so if you have acquired a Keeshond as your new dog, then you know you are in for happy times. They have been man's companion for many long years, and were watchdogs on the boats and barges in Holland, way back in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today they enjoy a role of treasured companion, and lets face it - they are such a distinguished looking dog with their silver and black fur with a ruff and a curled tail! As a puppy, they are irresistible balls of fluff, smiling away at anyone who will give them the time of day. Having established how special they are, next comes the conundrum of what you are going to call this adorable dog. Sheba comes to mind for a female, while a name like Kaiser or Kishi would suit a male. Because they are such a handsome dog, we have compiled a list of names that suit their characteristic and appearance. Browse our Keeshond Dog Names list, and you may find that will be all you need to select a name. Keep in mind the many happy years you will share with this dog, so give them a nice name, a name with honor or at least a name that is crisp, clear and easy for your dog to understand.

Keeshond Dog Name Considerations

A lot of dog names are trending towards shorter names that are easily recognized by your dog. If you counted how many times a week you used your dog's name, your would be amazed at the high number. Therefore it makes sense to choose a name that you like the sound of, and one that combines well with the type of commands that you will use to train your dog. While one or two syllable names are best, you can buck the trend and go longer, just make sure the name is easy to say. If you think the name can be shortened by family members and friends, ensure you are happy with the sound of the shortened version. Dog names shouldn't be similar to names within the family or friend circles, it just gets too confusing for your dog. They get to a point where they don't know whether you are talking to them or one of the family. If this is the case, they will tend to switch off, and although it may seem as if they are disobedient, they are in reality just downright confused! So before you choose the right name for your Keeshond dog, think it through carefully. Say the name out loud and get a feel for how it sounds. Consider the character of the Keeshond, always willing and able to sound a quick alarm when someone is near. An attractive dog as well, a name to suit this alert breed may be Belle. The Keeshond likes to keep busy; perhaps a name along this vein may be just the fit. Consider Captain or Bolt; the possibilities are endless!
