While naming a child can be somewhat stressful because people need to think about how the name works with last and middle names, how initials appear and how peers may accept it, the same stress doesn't exist with naming a dog. This means that people naming their dogs can feel free to be a bit more adventurous and creative.

Understanding a dog's heritage can help a dog owner name her puppy. For example, shepherds, dachshunds and schnauzers are of German descent, so giving these dogs a German name may be a consideration. Similarly, because wolfhounds and setters are Irish, a dog owner may choose to give her dog an Irish name.

One consideration that dog owners might want to consider before naming their dogs is how long the name is. Dogs typically respond better to one- and two-syllable names.
