Best Chihuahua Dog names
There are several things you need to take into account when naming a dog. Even an adorable tiny one like our Chihuahuas. All dogs need training – even if it’s just to come when they are called as a minimum. So you want your Chihuahua dog names to be something that is easy for you to say, and also simple for him to understand.

Words of two syllables or less are popular for this reason. But you don’t have to stick to the rules, after all, this is your new puppy! Here are some of the types of names you can expect to see in this article.
