These are the best dog names that start with I.

When you’re picking a dog name, you need to be sure you’ve picked the perfect one. Dogs are a lifelong commitment (though that exact commitment depends on the breed, but is always a lot of years!).

Many breeders suggest you pick a name before the dog even goes home with you, so the breeder can start using the name and getting them used to it. If you’re adopting, this may not be an option, but you’ll still want to pick a name as soon as possible to get the dog used to it when they come home. It’s used for recall, and a lot of other things that can be helpful!

There are many things you can base a new name on: color, personality, different languages… or letters!

Here are the best dog names that start with I.
