Female Dog Names

Picked up a cute little lass to be your family puppy? Good for you. Now you just need to name her. Before you rush into calling her any old thing, step back and give the process some thought. You obviously want to go with a feminine name. No young lady wants to be called Rambo! Gather the family around and do some brainstorming. The appropriate name for most puppies will soon just become readily apparent to you and the kids. To get the juices flowing, here are some ideas for female dog names that are fairly popular.

Be Careful
 
You do need to be a bit careful when picking a name in one particular way. Make sure you don't select a name of one of your relatives or good friends. I've done this and it is rather embarrassing when you are calling for the dog while the person is over at your house. They may take it as less than a compliment that you gave the dog their name even if you did so unintentionally. Yes, I've done this before.
 
Training
 
Once you have a name for your little girl, you need to train her to recognize it. This is actually fairly simple. You need to have a handful of treats and a room with just you and her in it. Now sit a few feet away from her. Call her name. If she looks at you, give her a treat. Once she eats it, let her walk around a bit and then call her name again. If she reacts, give her another treat. If she does not, keep calling her name. Once she responds, feed her again. After a few days, she'll get the idea. 
 
At the end of the day, you can name the little fur ball whatever name you like. Ultimately, I suggest you shoot for something feminine, but it is entirely up to you.
