Choose a clean name.

We all want our dogs to have special names, which is not that popular, and it’s awesome, but we want to keep the name of your dog as much as possible “clean”. When we say that, we mean that your dog can easily remember that name without headaches. 

If you choose, let’s say for example Ermenegildo, your dog will probably be confused. We have nothing against this name, but we think that this name isn’t just ideal for a dog. You also what to avoid names that sound similar to the basic commands (sit, come, here, speak, no…) when you pronounce them.
