How to Name Your Boy Dog

Choosing from boy dog names can be more challenging than girl dog names because their personalities are completely different. Male dogs tend to need more attention, be more affectionate, and are a bit harder to train because of their more playful nature. If you have no idea what to name your boy puppy, our site has thousands of ideas to help you. Start with the most popular boy puppy names or browse through our unique names for some inspiration. To help you get started, here are some tips to consider when naming your boy puppy.

Consider His Breed

What breed is your dog? If your new pup is a Rottweiler, then the cute boy puppy that it is now will grow into a 50 pound masculine canine, so Shadow might be a better choice over Sparky. Alternatively, if your dog’s personality is friendly it would suit him well to choose friendly dog names such as Buddy. Check out Dogtime’s breed personality traits and use that as a starting point for your name.

Make it Personal

Oftentimes people who choose a name for their new boy puppy base it on something personal, such as their favorite movie character. Choosing a name based on your personal favorites not only provides a unique name for your dog, but also a personal connection. So start thinking about all names that mean something to you and it might just inspire you to name your male puppy after it!
