Finding the Right Name for Your Small Dog
Now that you’ve seen our list of small dog names, it’s time to take your pick. Will you choose something cute, classic, funny, or unique?
Before you go, we have a couple of dog-naming suggestions. First, you’ll want to make sure the name you choose is easy to say and will work well for training. Try saying (and yelling) the name a few times to see how it feels. Second, you’ll want a name that suits your dog. If your pup is goofy, look for a funny name. More of a princess? Try something a little more regal – or cute.
