So, you’re bringing home a new puppy. Congratulations! But, you might have trouble deciding on a name. Your family can’t agree on a name. Luckily, we’ve narrowed down your options to the 50 best boy dog names.

How to name your new puppy

Before choosing a name for your puppy, make sure it’s a name that’s not similar or the same name as someone else. Whether it’s a human friend or family member, or another pet in the house, you don’t want to confuse your pup.

You can also choose a few different names and let your pooch pick out their name. Call them the different names and, whichever one they respond to the most, can be their name. Dogs respond to certain sounds and syllables. So, one name might perk their ears more than another.

If you’re ready to consider a few different names, then read this list of dog names for boys.
