Introduction

The Emerald City - that's what they call Seattle because it is full of and surrounded by nature's greenery. Located on the east shore of Puget Sound, this city is beautiful and lively. It is a hub for culture, technology, and industry. This is where Starbucks got its start, where Bill Gates, founder and CEO of Microsoft calls home, and where the Boeing airline industry began. Seattle is a great city to live in...but it's gone to the dogs. There are officially more dogs than children living within the city limits. There are dog-friendly employers, off-leash recreational areas, and even a place to take your dog to do yoga. If you're joining the number of dog owners in Seattle, you'll need a good name for your fur baby.. Here's a list of Seattle influenced names for you to consider.

Seattle Dog Name Considerations

Naming your dog is one of the first steps in establishing a relationship with your pet. It's something you'll say often, so it's most important that you select a name you like. Think it over carefully before you decide and permanently label your dog with a name that doesn't fit.. 

The name should be fairly short and easy to pronounce, especially if their are children in the family. Make sure it is one the dog will recognize. Avoid names that rhyme with standard commands. For instance,.you wouldn't want to name a dog "Moe" because it sounds too much like the command "no.".Dogs may have trouble discerning similar sounding words.

If you need inspiration, you might look to your dog's heritage. Lots of breeds, like German Shepherds, Irish Wolfhounds, and Scottish Terriers can suggest a variety of names for you to choose from. French Poodles and English Bulldogs are other breeds that fit a name based on origin as well.

Don't forget to think ahead. A name that may seem perfect for a puppy might not be right for a grown dog. For example, Puppy might not seem appropriate for an adult. Using a little humor never hurts either. When lookig for a specific theme, remember place names like Seattle offer a myriad of ideas for names. You can be inspired by food, nature, monuments, or historical events related to the place, just to name a few.

If you want to wait and observe your pup for a few days and take time to watch his behavior, that's fine. Getting to know your dog before choosing his name is never a bad idea. Whatever you decide, do it with love and begin bonding with your new pet.
