Dog Names That Start With H

Aug 25 ·

When you’re picking a dog name, you need to be sure of the choice you’re making. Dogs are a lifelong commitment (which depends on the breed, but is always many years!). Today we are focusing on dog names that start with H. You’re going to hear that name every time you practice recall, every time you take the dog to the vet’s office, and every time someone says, “Can I pet your dog? What’s his name?”

That can be a lot of pressure. You want a name that’s catchy for your dog, but that you won’t hate down the line. Many breeders suggest you pick a name before the dog even goes home with you, so they can start getting the dog used to their name.

If you’re adopting, it’s also best to pick the name as soon as possible to get the dog used to their new home.

There are many ways to pick a new name: color, personality, different languages… or letters! If you have a favorite letter, you can start by looking through names that start with said letter.

Here are the best dog names that start with H.
