Choosing a dog name

That’s why choosing a name for a new puppy is a big deal. A name is something that will stick around for a long time, so both you and the dog has to love it.
When naming a white dog, there are so many options, as we’ve seen from the list above. But here are a few extra tips to help you choose a name that will stand the test of time.
While going for a comedy name can be fun right now, will it still be funny in a few years’ time? You don’t want to end up embarrassed by your dog’s name every time you go out for a walk. And remember, you will have to train the puppy with the name.
Dog experts also recommend choosing two-syllable names, like Lily or Luna. Two-syllable names are easy to say and nice to hear. Plus, you can convey more emotion, which means your dog will know when he or she has been good or bad.
So, have some fun with puppy names for white dogs, but also think long-term before making a final decision.
