The 50 Best Black Dog Names

Jul 29 ·

Looking for some black dog names? Here are some great ones!

Some people get their dog as a rescue and love the name. Others get a shelter dog or rescue and don’t jive with the name — they wonder if they can change it (the answer is yes). Some people get a puppy who’s never had a name, and it’s on them to pick a good one from scratch!

It’s good to teach your dog their name as soon as possible, because it can be important for recall and getting their attention. Their name will also provide them with a sense of familiarity in this new life! However, some people agonize over the name. They worry that they’ll choose the wrong one, or hate the name they pick in a year.

This can be avoided by researching all names and making sure you love it and it suits the dog.

Speaking of suiting the dog — what if you have an all-black one, or one that has mostly black fur? These awesome names can be used for any dog, but there’s no denying they fit black ones best.
