How to pick a dog name

Now just because you adopted your dog in October (or even just because you love Halloween) doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give your dog a Halloween-inspired name!

When picking a name for your dog, make sure you’re doing a few things:

  • Taking into consideration her personality
  • Making sure it doesn’t sound like a common command
  • Having fun with it!

As long as you’re comfortable calling your dog Cobweb even at the summer BBQ, give your dog the name you think is the most fitting — and fun — for the both of you.
