Naming Tips

Naming a new dog is a big responsibility.

Your puppy may not understand the specific meaning of their name but will understand that this word has a significant meaning. They will understand that this word means that you need them, want to see them, are going to walk them, feed them, etc. There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding on what to call a new pooch.

  • Keep it simple. Dogs are not going to realize that a big, long title refers to them. For example, The Esteemed Lady Petunia Paddington has a regal feel, but no canine will respond to that long of a name. Keep monikers to two syllables if possible. Three syllables can also work, but two seem to be the magic number for canines.
  • Canines respond to strong letter sounds. These include D, M, T, K, P, and CH. Softer sounds like F, S, and soft C are harder for canines to hear. The first sound should alert a pup that her owner, or someone else, is trying to get her attention. Words that end in vowels tend to be easier for dogs to pick up.
    Avoid words that sound like command words. Naming your puppy something that sounds like a command will just confuse her. Avoid things like “Kit,” which sounds like “sit,” and “Koe” or “Roe,” which sounds like “no.”
  • Try out some nicknames. For every idea, you consider trying out a few different nicknames. Owners always end up calling their dogs many different nicknames, so it is good to try out a few and see how they feel before making a final decision.
  • Keep things appropriate and clean. Stay away from ideas that are negative or can be perceived as offensive. You do not want to embarrass yourself, your pup, or anyone who might need to call them, like a trainer, vet, or dog sitter.
  • Avoid words that sound like other pets’ names and the names of family members. This goes for nicknames as well. For example, naming your sweet baby, Ana might confuse her when Nana is around. Calling your pup Brad may confuse everyone when you try to talk to Dad.
  • When teaching a puppy a new name, use the word a lot in a happy, positive tone. When they respond to this word, give them a verbal reward like “good,” “yes,” or “right,” followed by a treat. You can also use a clicker to signal that they did the right thing, then follow with a treat.

Final Thoughts

Naming your puppy is a fun experience but also a big responsibility. It is ok to take some time to try out a few different ideas to see which one fits your puppy’s personality. Get creative, but make sure to stay appropriate and respectful. Cani Corsi are magnificent, large canines. These big beauties were bred as warriors and guardians. They are oversized yet lovable and fiercely loyal to their owners. Owning one of these dogs is a true privilege. This is one breed that will keep your heart forever. Male or female, we have offered a list of over 600 name ideas for the majestic Cane Corso.
