Introduction

If you are considering getting a Miniature Schnauzer as your next dog, then the next thing you will need is a suitable name to bestow on your small but devoted canine. These little dogs are attractive with their striking markings, soft coats and happy wagging tails. They also have real personalities and can be naughty and mischievous. But with good training and understanding they make adorable and devoted pets. What can you call your dog, though? The list can be endless, you can give him or her a name that defines their personality such as Mayhem, for a dog who loves to get in to everything, Rocket, because he zooms all over the place, or even Pepper, for a spirited young lady. A stoic and handsome dog might suit Mozart. Then again, if you have had a previous dog of the same breed and similar temperament, you could call it Deja Vu (having seen it all before). Snuggle down with your new pal and check out the list of names that would suit your Miniature Schnauzer before you rush in and make a rash decision.

Miniature Schnauzer Dog Names

Think of your dog before considering the name. What characteristics does it have? Keep in mind that a puppy will grow up and change in nature from a mischievous ball of trouble to a sedate mature dog. Call him an easy to understand name, rather than a long winded name. These little guys are fast on their feet so you don't want to be stumbling over their name when trying to control them. Don't use a name that is too similar to the commands you will be training your dog with, or they will get confused. Kit sounds too much like 'sit' for a dog. If you have children in the family, don't choose a name for your dog that sounds like your daughter's name, for example. Vicki and Vixen (the dog) sound similar and you may find both your child and your dog start ignoring you because of the confusion over the name. Think carefully before you name your dog. Consider all the aspects of a name - can it be shortened to an offensive name, what does your dog's name mean, and if using a foreign language name, do find out what it means or you may be embarrassing yourself when you yell out a command to come. Take time to get to know your Schnauzer and try the names on them - you will soon learn what suits and what doesn't.
