Tips for Choosing Your Labradoodle’s Name
There are no real rules when it comes to naming your dog. But it’s still a good idea to give your dog’s name some thought.
Remember, you’ll be saying this name both in private and in public, and you’ll be repeating it multiple times a day. So, pick a name that’s easy to say and that you’re comfortable saying in public.
Dogs tend to pick up more quickly on two syllable names like Riley as opposed to one syllable names like Jack or three or more syllable names like Maranda or Anastasia.
Of course, that doesn’t mean shorter or longer names should be off the table. You always have the option of giving your Labradoodle a nickname, (which many of us do anyway).
Or simply working with your Labradoodle a bit longer on the name of your choice to help him learn it.
Labradoodle dogs especially are known for their dynamic brains, so don’t count them out. Chances are that, with proper training, patience and repetition, your Labradoodle should be able to learn his name within a matter of weeks.
Why A Good Name Matters
Choosing the right name for your Labradoodle helps give your dog an identity and place in your family. Plus, it is often the first thing you’ll teach your Labradoodle.
Try and keep the naming process fun and lighthearted. And during training, avoid punishing or scolding your Labradoodle if he doesn’t pick up on their name right away.
Your Labradoodle’s name goes hand-in-hand with learning a good recall, and it’s important your dog trusts he can come to you when you call.
