Introduction

Bringing home that new puppy is such an exciting time for the whole family.  We can't begin to know all of the happy thoughts running through the minds of every member of your family as you drive home with your new beautiful baby.  Have you decided where they will sleep; or, what food you will feed them; or when and how to begin housebreaking and leash training?  While these are necessary decisions, there is another which is also essential - choosing the name you will call this new frisky friend.

Merle Dog Name Considerations

Most of the new duties associated with a new puppy are those who are welcomed and pleasantly anticipated by pet purchasers.  There are some, however, which are not.  We refer to tasks like getting up in the wee hours of the day to take the pup outside to relieve themselves or the inevitable discovery of an “oops” during a midnight stroll to the bathroom which evidences that you should have taken them out 30 minutes earlier, or the when and the how of housebreaking and leash training.  The one obligation that many pet keepers avoid is that of picking a great name for that new pawed playmate, the potential pool of perfect prenomens so vast that it seemingly defies manageability.  We would like to point out that approaching any challenging task with a plan improves the odds of success.  Many pet owners opt to use their pet’s breed, size or friendly frolicking behavior to generate name clues. Other owners focus primarily on the color of their new pal's coat.  How about looking at merle dog names for your precious pup?
