If you’re preparing to bring home a new puppy, every member of the family will want to help choose the “pawfect” name for your new fur-baby. And if your kids are obsessed with the Nick Jr. series PAW Patrol, there’s a good chance they’ll want to name your pup after their favorite animated TV character.
But don’t worry. If you’re not up-to-date with the cartoon canines your kids love the most, we’ve put together a guide to the names of PAW Patrol characters below. Who knows? One of them might be just right for your new furry family member!
Of course, there’s no guarantee that your PAW Patrol-loving child will want to name your pup after a four-legged character. Maybe they’ll be inspired by Ryder, the 10-year-old kid in charge of this heroic canine crew. He’s smart, a real go-getter, and boasts tenacious determination — all of which are qualities any pet parent would love to see in their pup.
Finally, who could forget mustachioed Mayor Humdinger, the show’s main bad guy? The mayor of Foggy Bottom may be the nemesis of the plucky PAW Patrol pups, but despite all his sneaky plans and nefarious deeds he never seems to come out on top. The one thing he does have in his favor is a name that’ll turn a few heads when you’re yelling it out in a crowded dog park!
