Girl Dog Names and Boy Dog Names Perfect for Miniature Schnauzers.

Choosing Boy and Girl Dog Names
Perfect for Mini Schnauzers

What boy or girl dog names are right for your Miniature Schnauzer?

Whatever name you choose will – for the lifetime of your pet – say something about the personality of your dog and how you feel about him or her.

The name can even influence the way other people react to your Schnauzer, and make training either easier or harder… So it’s an important decision!

Here are some tips to help you decide!

 

Don’t Rush Into It!

Names are ideally a reflection of the personality of the bearer. If you want to choose boy or girl dog names appropriate to the character of your Mini Schnauzer it makes sense to not rush into it.

Pups are like babies. They are either sleeping, playing or eating. Depending on which your puppy is engaged in when you see her, she may come across as lethargic and introverted, boisterous and playful, or preoccupied and aloof.

Also, leaving her breeder and litter mates is a stressful event in her life so when you first take her home she is likely to be a bit subdued for a day or so.

Wait a few days to allow her to settle in and fully express what sort of little doggy person she is before you name her.

Think Adult Not Puppy!

Mini Schnauzer puppies are sooooo adorable! It is only natural that cute male and female puppy names will seem just right for your baby. But just remember… that name might come across as a bit sickly sweet once he or she grows into a proud adult!

Emotional Charge

Some male or female dog names have a strong emotional charge to them that might influence how people react to your Miniature Schnauzer for the rest of its life. Names like “Fang” or “Hitler” could make people a bit wary and even fearful! So name with care.

Training

Names that are short – either one or two syllables – are easier for your dog to respond to. Anything longer than that is likely to get shortened anyway!

Also, avoid names that sound similar to the basic commands you’ll be using – sit, stay, come, heel.

Now you’re ready to choose a name!

Are you a conformist or a bit of an individual? Will a popular dog name be right for you or are you looking for something a bit more unique?

Popular Dog Names

Veterinary Pet Insurance recently published the most popular US dog names out of 450,000 clients’ pets.

The Top Girl Dog Names were

Molly, Bella, Lucy, Maggie and Daisy.

The Top Boy Dog Names were

Max, Buddy, Jake, Bailey and Rocky.

An interesting trend in both boy and girl dog names over recent decades has been a move towards giving them people names. Psychologists surmise that this reflects the increasingly almost human bond that people feel for their dogs.
