Are There Any Rules To Picking Your Chocolate Labrador’s New Name?
While there are no real rules to picking out a dog’s name, there are some tips experts suggest you follow.
Look, we get that rules are made for a reason and bla bla bla, but they aren’t always the most fun things to follow, right? Luckily, there aren’t any serious rules you need to follow when it comes to choosing the best dog name for your new dog.
Still, there are some tips and tricks that experts and dog trainers suggest new dog owners consider when picking out their dog’s name. These tips and tricks are especially important for those of us looking to teach our dogs their names quickly.
So, what are these tips and tricks?
Experts suggest dog owners pay attention to a few key factors, including syllables, pronunciation, and the timelessness of a name.
Let’s break this down, shall we?
When it comes to syllables, many experts agree that dogs tend to pick up quickest on names that are two syllables long. This means your Chocolate Lab may learn names like Jasper, Frankie, and Shiloh quicker than names that are three syllables like Dahlia or names that are just one syllable, like Max.
Of course, this doesn’t mean your dog can’t learn a name that is shorter or longer than the advised two syllables. This only means that it may take more time for your dog to learn his name. And that brings us to pronunciation.
Dog naming experts want you to consider the pronunciation of our dog’s new name. Is this name difficult for you or others in the home to say? This is an especially important tip to consider when you have a dog who is going to be a family dog.
If you choose a name that is incredibly difficult for someone in the home to pronounce, this could lead to confusion for the dog during training and also slow down the bonding process for family members. Remember, naming your dog is the first step towards bonding with him, and if getting the new dog is a family event, then naming him should be a fun family affair.
Last but not least, we want you to consider the timelessness and appropriateness of your dog’s name. Now, this doesn’t mean that you should try to choose a name that is going to be popular forever and ever. This simply means that choosing your dog’s name is kind of like getting a tattoo.
You should stick with a name you like and keep in mind that you will be using this name repeatedly for years to come. You will also be using your dog’s name in public, when out on walks, when taking your dog to the vet, and when running daily errands when your dog tags along.
Not sure if you’ll be embarrassed by using your dog’s name or not? Practice saying your dog’s name aloud in the presence of strangers, and make sure you are comfortable using it. For example, if you feel embarrassed saying the word “Poopscicle” out loud at the local coffee shop, then you may want to reconsider naming your Chocolate Lab Poopscicle.
And not that it’s any of our business, but please don’t name your Chocolate Lab Poopscicle.
Or do, if Poopscicle is really the name you have your heart set on. It’s entirely up to you and, as we mentioned already, there really aren’t any rules. The only rule is that you are happy with the name you choose, and that you are ready and prepared to use it for the next 10 – 15 years with your Chocolate Lab.
And now that all that boringness is out of the way, let’s get to the fun stuff! Are you ready to find the best, most delicious name for your new Chocolate Lab? Then keep reading!

Tips On Teaching Your Chocolate Lab Puppy or Rescue Dog His New Name
Experts say with the proper training and patience, most dogs learn their names in as little as two weeks.
Are you hoping your new Chocolate Lab will pick up his name quickly? Well, you couldn’t have chosen a better pup. Chocolate Labs, and Labs in general, are known for their incredible intelligence and devotion to their people.
These eager to please, easy to train pups are quick to learn and will enjoy picking up on new tricks and cues so long as you go about using the proper training techniques and methods.
Remember, most dogs learn best when trainers use positive reinforcement methods like treats and praise, and your Chocolate Lab is no different.
Start out by saying your Chocolate Lab’s name, and when he looks to you and makes eye contact, offer him a treat and give him lots of praise. Repeat this daily. Once you know your Lab has caught on to the trick, start moving farther away.
You can call him by name from across the room, or even in another room. The most important thing is that when you are calling him by name, especially in the early days, you are using his name is a positive way.
This will help your Chocolate Lab to learn that when he hears his name it means something good is going to happen to him, and so he will pay attention.
Be careful not to scold your Chocolate Lab using his new name during the early days of name teaching, or he may begin to associate his name with something negative. If this happens, he will be less inclined to come when called or to respond to his name in a positive way.
And don’t worry – old dogs can learn new tricks! So whether you’ve bought your Chocolate Lab from a breeder as a puppy or you have recently adopted an adult Chocolate Lab, giving your Chocolate Lab the name of your dreams shouldn’t have an age limit.
Dogs are adaptable and catch on quickly, so don’t be afraid of trying new things with your Chocolate Lab no matter his age.
