Naming your newly acquired pitbull can be a bit more frustrating than any other breed of dog. You know why you got a pitbull and you love him/her. But it’s important to note that unless you won’t be going to any parks and live somewhere in the woods, you may get some strange looks from people especially if your pitbull’s name is intimidating. In this article I will go over a few basic rules to follow when naming your pitbull.

If your pitbull is newly acquired pup and you’re having a hard time coming up with a name it’s a good idea to simply observe the pup’s behavior and pick a name based on the personality, affection or even appearance.

The first rule in naming your pitbull is keep it short. Pitbulls tend to respond quicker to short names. Pick a name no longer than one or two syllables.

It’s also very important that you don’t name your pitbull anything that resembles or sounds like any of the basic commands such as: No, Sit, Down, Come, Fetch or Stay. Pitbulls, or dogs in general, have a hard time telling the difference between words that sound the same. For example “Moe” sounds the same as “No” to a dog.

Consider what you will be calling out to your pitbull in the park or just outside where your neighbors can hear you. The reason for that is the general perception of the pitbull breed is mostly negative. We’ve all heard the stories about what that “crazy pitbull” did. Despite many misconceptions and exaggerations about the pitbulls, many people simply choose to believe that the pitbull is somehow more “dangerous” than any other dog. For this reason when choosing a name for your pitbull it’s important to consider how people will treat you and your pitbull with a name like “Killer” or “Destroyer”.

That doesn’t mean you can’t name your dog what you want, you just need to be sure you’re comfortable calling out to your dog in public without embarrassment. Any name is a good name for your dog as long as it’s something that you and your dog like. Some of the popular names include Max, Baily, Buddy, Molly, Maggie, Lucy, Daisy, Bella, Jake, and Rocky. Short names are always better. You can also pick from names such as Molly, Maggie, Daisy, Lucy, Sadie, Ginger, Chloe, Bailey, Sophie, and Zoe.

Make sure you love your puppy’s name – it’s going to be the name your puppy will carry with him forever. Get more tips to naming your pitbull on the website.
