How To Pick The Best Name For A Labradoodle Puppy

Labradoodle Names

Sometimes, the breed will have already picked a name for your puppy. However, that job is usually left to the pup’s new owners.

So, how do you go about choosing the best name for your new furry friend?

On-Trend Names

Labradoodle names tend to come in and out of popularity. For example, the name Marley was incredibly popular because of the 2008 film “Marley & Me.”

If you choose a trendy name for your puppy, that’s fine. But bear in mind that you’ll probably find lots of other Labradoodles with the same name at the beach or dog park, which could cause chaos when you call your pet!

Baby Names Books

Baby-names books are often an extremely useful source of inspiration for puppy names. The books often contain dozens of names, often with the name’s meaning.

Ask Your Family and Friends

A great fun way of selecting a name for your puppy is to invite a group of family and friends around and ask for their ideas.

Quite often, someone will suggest a name that you never even considered. Kids are particularly good at thinking up fun dog names, especially if you offer a small prize for the best suggestion!

Make Lists

It’s so frustrating to think of a few names and then forget them later! When inspiration strikes, make a note of the name so that you end up with a list of ideas, and then pick the best one.

Try pinning the list on your kitchen noticeboard so that others in your household can add their ideas to yours.

Once you’ve accumulated a decent selection of possible Labradoodle names, try putting all the names into a bag and ask a friend to draw one out.

You could even hold a puppy naming party for everyone who made name suggestions!

What To Consider When Choosing A Labradoodle Name

When making a list of Labradoodle names, there are a few important factors to consider:

Short and Sweet

Labradoodles are pretty smart, but your puppy won’t remember a long, rambling name. Ideally, two-syllable names are the longest you should pick. A short name is easier for your pet to memorize and quicker for you to shout out in an emergency.

No Commands!

A common mistake made by newby dog owners is to pick a name that sounds very similar to a command. For example, “Brit” sounds very much like “Sit!” Imagine you’re at the dog park, and you need to call your Labradoodle to come to you. Brit might remain sitting obediently where he is, no matter how much you shout his name!

Unpronounceable!

Although that sounds odd, you’d be amazed by how many pet parents choose unpronounceable names for their pets.

If you can’t say your puppy’s name easily and quickly without stumbling or hesitating, it’s totally unreasonable and unrealistic to expect your dog to memorize his moniker.

Nicknames

Some well-bred dogs have a long, fancy name that’s simply not practical to use as an everyday name for your pet.

Instead, you need to use an easy nickname that’s easy to say and simple for your dog to understand and remember.

Don’t Offend People!

Labradoodle

You might think it’s amusing to name your dog after someone you know, such as a friend, relative, work colleague, or public figure. However, some people can find that incredibly offensive, and human names can also cause confusion at the vet clinic or dog park.

Remember, too, that a person who is currently a social media sensation or politician will most likely no longer be in that position in a few years’ time. So, if you call your puppy Joe Biden, or Donald Trump, keep in mind that name will probably be out-of-date ten years from now.

Avoid Jokey Names

If there’s a joke doing the rounds that you and your friends find hilarious, you might want to use that as an amusing name for your Labradoodle.

Ask yourself if that joke is still going to be as funny five or ten years down the line?

Avoid Confusing Names

If you already have pets in your household, be very careful not to use similar-sounding names for them.

Imagine the confusion you’ll cause if you name your puppy Jess when your family cat or your sister are called Bess!

The Importance Of Choosing The Right Name For Your Labradoodle

Labradoodles can live for as long as 15 years or even longer in smaller dogs. That means it’s vital to pick the right name for your dog.

Your dog’s name is the cue you use to get your pet’s attention focused on you. So, you need to choose a name that your pup can learn quickly and one that’s clear enough for him to hear and understand over a cacophony of barking on a breezy day at the beach or dog park.

How Long Does It Take For A Labradoodle To Learn His Name?

Labradoodles are pretty intelligent dogs, so it shouldn’t take long for your pup to remember his name. In most cases, a puppy can learn his name in a few days or a week or two at the most.

Consistency is the key! Don’t chop and change between versions of your puppy’s name. For example, don’t call your dog “Biggles” one day and “Bigs” the next, as that will confuse your furry friend.
