The 50 Best Small Dog Names

Looking for some great small dog names? We have you covered.

Picking a name can be one of the hardest things about getting a dog. You might agonize for days or even weeks over picking the perfect one but the truth is, it’s best to get it settled as soon as possible. Dogs can learn their name, and it’s very useful for getting their attention and calling them back. The sooner you get them used to their name, the better!

No pressure, then! But it’s understandable you also want to take the time to make the right choice.

You can ensure you’ll love a name in the future if it truly suits your dog. For example, if you have a small dog name, there are names to suit breeds like this. That way, even when they’re fully grown, the name will still suit them!

If you need an awesome name for your small dog, these are the best. You can take one of these as they are or use some variation of them, such as a different spelling!
