Washington Dog Name Considerations

Washington, DC loves all dog breeds so if you’re leaning towards a political name there’s one that’s perfect for any canine. Tall or tiny, fat or sleek, any dog can suit a Washington name. Imagine an English Bulldog named Trump or a show-stopping Afghan hound named Melania. These names are instantly recognizable to people and will bring a smile to many faces.

Consider your dog’s personality. Is he a mouthy little guy who yaps a lot? Or maybe you’ve got a big, burly dog with a loud bark. Is your dog cautious and conservative or one of those pups who loves to dive right in to the activity? Perhaps yours is stately and elegant or quiet and reserved. All qualities to consider when naming your pup.

Color, too, might be a consideration. A shaggy white dog might be named after Bernie Sanders while a well-groomed dark coat could remind you of John Kennedy. No matter which politician you would like to celebrate there’s a dog that is the perfect representative.

Of course all of Washington isn’t politics. There are museums, restaurants, nature, and history as well. Take inspiration for your new dogs name from anything Washington related and you’ll have a real winner on the ballot.
