One last tip from us before choosing a name for your pet: you might be tempted to give them a silly or witty name like Macron, but bear in mind you’ll be stuck with it forever. It might also be a bit awkward to have to call this name out when you’re outdoors and everyone can hear you. Consider a two-syllable name that your dog will hear and grasp easily. And last but not least – make sure it matches their personality and appearance.
