Known for being loving, loyal, friendly and happy dogs, they need names that match their larger-than-life personalities.

Labrador Retriever Dog Name Considerations

One of the most exciting things about getting a new dog is coming up with a name. It’s also one of the most daunting tasks. Not only does the name need to match your new companion’s personality, it needs to be one that you will like for 10 to 14 years. In many ways, naming a dog is like naming a child, so it’s important to get it right.

When trying to think of Labrador Retriever names, consider your dog’s appearance. Is your Lab the standard yellow, chocolate or black? Or is he or she a more unique color like red or silver? Does your pup have any unusual features such as exceptionally large ears or paws? All of these characteristics could help you choose the perfect name.

For training purposes, it’s easier to give a dog a name that is short and does not sound similar to any commands (like sit, stay, down). Think about your Lab’s personality. Labs have big, friendly personalities, and names that focus on these traits work well. When choosing a name, remember that your dog’s ability to understand human language is limited. As a result, it is always best to choose one that is easy to recognize.
