How to Pick a Good Name for your Shih Tzu?
Naming your new Shih Tzu is an important and fun task.
Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect name for your furry friend.
- Think about what qualities you want your dog to have. Do you want a name that reflects their energy and playful personality? A name that is regal and stately? Something whimsical?
- Consider your Shih Tzu’s appearance. Is your pup small and delicate? muscular and burly? Do they have unique markings or coloration?
- Take into account your own name and the names of other family members. You may want a name that goes well with your own, or one that is distinctly different.
- Make a list of your favorite names. Once you have a good list, start narrowing it down by eliminating the ones that are too difficult to pronounce or spell.
- Try out the names you’re considering. Say them out loud and see how they sound. Pay attention to your dog’s reaction when you say each name. Does one make them perk up their ears? Wag their tail?
- Be prepared to change your dog’s name if it doesn’t suit them. If you find that the name you’ve chosen just doesn’t fit, don’t be afraid to try something else.
