  4. Choosing The Right Name For Your pet

Choosing The Right Name For Your pet


There are many decisions to make when getting a new pet, but perhaps none is more important than choosing a name. If you need help choosing a name for your precious pet we’re here to help! When picking a name it’s important that you choose one that encompasses the personality of your pet. Things to keep the following in mind when picking your pet name are:

  • Pick names that have a general sound and rhythm—a name that is too long can leave your pet confused.
  • Choose a name that is easily recognizable and that ends in vowel sounds.
  • Try and avoid names that sound like command such as “no.”
  • Pick a name that will reflect your pet’s personality.

Give your pet an ID tag that matches his or her name. Choose from a variety of styles and shapes including hearts, bones or circles. Make your pet really stand out with charms and pendants covered in rhinestones.


Safety is always important when taking your pet for a stroll. Having the right gear doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Pick from glitzy cat collars to leashes designed to protect your pet. Having items such as a portable light can make night time strolls fun and safe.
