Small Dog Names

      Small dogs are becoming increasingly popular because they just fit. With smaller yards becoming the norm and an increase in apartment dwellers, sometimes there just isn’t room for a large dog. For many families and living arrangements, only a smaller dog makes sense. There are also many characteristics that new owners look for that just can’t be obtained in a big breed. A Golden Retriever will not fit in most purses and it is hard to watch television with a 200lb Mastiff in your lap. Because the little dogs are getting more attention, we have put together a special list of names tailored for your small puppy.

      The best advice for a new owner of a toy or miniature breed is to think small when naming. It might be a good idea to choose a size related theme as well. Cookie, Nacho, Skittles, and Raisin are a few examples of cute names that come from a small food theme. Naming themes help get the wheels turning in your mind so that you are generating more name options. A person that tries to think of names in general will come up with only typical names that they associate with other dogs. On the other hand, a person using a theme will come up with new and interesting name possibilities. Keep in mind that a name should not only incorporate the size of a dog but also his/her personality.

      A small dog goes best with a small name. In fact, choosing a short name is a good rule of thumb for any dog. It comes highly recommended that you stick with just one or two syllables. A longer name like Benjamin is too much to say repetitively. It would be no surprise to see an owner that chose this name resort to using Ben. There is nothing wrong with choosing a longer name like this, but the shortened version might merit some consideration. If you are having trouble coming up with anything, you can gather ideas from the small dog names below.
