Names for small dogs include Tiny, Minnie, Peanut, Pixie and Tinkerbell. Naming a dog can be difficult, but experts recommend choosing a name that has one or two syllables so that the dog can easily recognize its own name.
Longer names can confuse the puppy. It is also best to choose a name that is distinctive and does not match any of the family members names within the home or other animal's names. Dog experts also advise dog owners to choose names with hard constants such as "k" or "c" because it makes the name easier to identify. It is important that the dog can easily distinguish its own name from commands such as "sit" or "come." Other cute small dog names include Pluto, Petey and Professor Flitwick (Flitwick for short).
