Chihuahuas are brave, loyal, and alert dogs. They’re small, but their personality can really pack a punch. While they might have an attitude and a mind of their own, this dog breed is fun to have for any family. If you’re bringing home a new Chihuahua furry friend, then consider some of these Chihuahua names to give your pooch.

Tips for naming your Chihuahua puppy

Naming a dog isn’t always easy. First, it’s difficult to choose a name the whole family agrees upon, and then you need to teach your doggo their name. Here are a few quick tips when it comes to naming your new puppy.

First, try to make it, so the name doesn’t rhyme or sound similar to a common command, your dog’s favorite toy, or someone else’s name in the house. Otherwise, it may confuse your pup, and they may not respond to their name. Or they’ll respond to someone else’s name, thinking it’s theirs.

You can take your time with naming your pup, as well. Get to know your dog’s personality and try out some different names. They may be more inclined to respond to a certain name. Then, your puppy has chosen their own name. Overall, have fun with the naming process.
