Choosing the right name for your furry friend

There are many reasons to name your new puppy after something in your life. Whether it’s your favorite food or it’s based on the color or pattern of your dog’s coat, the possibilities are endless.

However, you’ll want to be sure that their name is something you can easily pronounce and spell. Not only does this make it easier for vet visits, but it’ll be easier for your dog to understand.
