If you ask people about their favorite season, it’s more than likely summer. If you ask people about their favorite pets, it’s more than likely their dogs! You know it’s true. And when you combine the two favorites, things get even better. Whether at the lake or poolside, whether camping, playing at the park, or going out for a warm evening stroll, our pooches love to tag along for the summertime fun. They’re ready to join us for vacations and play with frisbees and beach balls like the rest of us. Summer is full of sun and energy, and our fur children adore all of the activities.

Summer Dog Name Considerations

If you love summertime almost as much as your lovable pup, then a summer inspired dog name could be for you! Think of all the sights, sounds, smells, feels, and tastes of summer. We see people out and about, hear birdsong and splashes in the pool, smell roses and salty ocean breezes, feel cool waters and towels envelop us, and taste strawberries and pina coladas! It’s a time to smile, and often, it’s the time to purchase, adopt, or rescue a dog, aka your summer playmate!

One summer vacation trip or outing and you’ll be overwhelmed with names for your summer-loving four-legged companion. Strap on their doggy sun hats, sunglasses, and lifejackets, and try on these fabulous summer names. Think back to summer childhood activities: consider “Popsicle,” “Sprinkler,” “Snow Cone,” and “Lemonade.” If those don’t suit, ponder tags like “Hammock,” “Snorkel,” “Tanner,” “Bikini,” “Firefly,” and “Wedding Bell.” The summer dog name options are seemingly endless. So many things make our fluffy pals and summertime so wonderful. Check out our name guide below. We hope you find what you’re looking for, or at the very least, we hope you’ll be inspired and be on the fast-track to finding your new pup a fantastic moniker!
