Is there anything more daunting than picking your dog’s name? Many owners are afraid they’ll make the wrong choice. Some want to test out a few names in recall and other situations to make sure they’ve made the right one. However, it’s important you choose a name for your dog and stick to it to avoid confusion — unless changing a shelter dog’s name, which should be fine if there’s consistency! Today we focus on dog names that start with R.

So how do you make sure you’ve made the right decision?

You need to take your time when choosing a name and consider them all carefully. You can look at names based on the color of your dog, or even different languages. It is also smart to look at what names you already like for people and see if there’s a number of syllables in common or a first letter.

For example, you might find yourself drawn to dog names that start with R! In that case, we’ve compiled the best of them.

Of course, if one of the supposedly female names appeals to you for your handsome male dog or vice versa, don’t be afraid to swap some of these around. You can pick them for whichever gender of dog! You can also alter the spellings to put a unique spin on your dog’s name.

Whatever feels right for you is what matters most, as it’s your dog.
