We all know and love the adorable Golden Retriever. This dog breed is all-around friendly with everyone. For example, they’re great with kids, friendly with other dogs, and affectionate to their family members. They’ll even think that strangers are their best friends, so if you’re looking for a guard dog, this one isn’t it. The best part is this pooch is easy to train as they want to please their owners, too. So, if you’re bringing home a puppy, check out these Golden Retriever names.

What should you name your Golden Retriever puppy?

Among crate training and potty training, you’re going to need to teach your Golden Retriever their name. Naming your dog is a fun process as you get to know the personality of your pup. If you and your family can’t decide on a name, then you can have your pooch choose their own name. For example, call them a few different names and see which one they respond to the most.

You can choose any name you want. It can be based on your favorite food, favorite color, or even your favorite movie character. Whatever you end up deciding, your pooch will thank you for it later. Plus, their unique name will be the talk of the dog park.
