What Should I Name My Pug?
Puppies need to learn their names pretty quickly. They are the way you get them to come to you, and form the basis of that all important early bonding. So it’s a good idea to give them a name that it’s easy to learn.
Names that can be said easily, clearly and in the same way by every member of the family are a sensible move. They shouldn’t be too long, just a couple of syllables at most. And they shouldn’t sound like any of the other commands you will want your Pug to learn later on either.
