5 tips for naming your German Shepherd dog

The name you choose for your German Shepherd dog is extremely important, as it will be the word you will say so that she will come to you whenever you need it. That is why it is recommended that the name you choose has a series of characteristics that guarantees that your pet learns it quickly.

Different from other commands

If you have in mind to teach your dog some commands or commands, the best thing that the name you assign to your little shepherd is phonetically different from the commands that you plan for her to learn. In this way, you will prevent her from confusing when you call her when you want her to perform a specific action.

Short

Dogs have greater retentiveness with short names , one to two syllables, thus allowing your dog to be able to remember and learn it easily.

With the vowels “A” and “O”

Another very interesting aspect is that German Shepherds are able to better recognize words that contain the vowels A and O. That is why it is an excellent idea with a name that includes one or both letters.

Avoid changes

Once you choose to choose a name for your dog, it is best to stick to your decision, especially if your German shepherd is already able to come when you call her.

Get to know her first

An ideal aspect that will allow you to select a name that you know is ideal for your little one is to take your time to get to know her . In this way you can observe their behavior and choose the name that is perfect for it.

Finally, remember that, although these simple tips will help you with the process of choosing the name, do not close yourself to other possibilities , especially names that you like and feel that they combine perfectly with your German Shepherd.
