Your Bulldog wants to be in your company and you should give your Bulldog a name that will be suitable for your intelligent canine friend and that you will feel comfortable using in a public area.

According to Bulldog information, Bulldog puppies grow into intelligent adults. Knowing that the Bulldog is intelligent does not make it easier for young Bulldog puppies to learn their name right away. You will have to help your Bulldog puppy learn its name by following a few tips when choosing a name.

The tone in which you say a word is key to your puppy’s understanding of your meaning behind the words that you say. The sound of the word is an important clue. Your Bulldog’s name should be clearly his or her name, which can be heard and understood by your Bulldog, especially at a distance. The personal name of your Bulldog puppy should be short and not have more than one or two syllables. A short name is easier to remember, to distinguish from other words and can attract your dog’s attention right away.

Another important tip for naming your Bulldog puppy is to consider how your Bulldog puppy tries to understand what you are saying. At first, your Bulldog puppy gets the meaning behind words by the tone in which the words are said. Your tone will be different depending on the situation and this is key to your Bulldog puppy’s comprehension of your word. With the right name, you will be able to get your Bulldog’s attention under most circumstances.

Bulldog information makes it clear that you should not give Bulldog puppies a name that rhymes or is similar with any command that you give to your dog. You should also avoid a name that rhymes or is similar to another name that is used in the household. If you use a name that too closely resembles someone else’s name, the dog can get confused about it.

Easy to understand and distinguish letters should be used as the first letter of names for Bulldog puppies. This makes it easier to hear the sound from the moment that you say the Bulldog puppy’s name. Hard consonants, such as D, K and T, are the letters that should begin your Bulldog puppy’s name because they can get your dog’s attention even at a distance.

By understanding your Bulldog’s personality, you can give your dog a name that will reflect your feelings for your Bulldog puppy.

Bulldog Club of America

The Bulldog was originally thought to be a butcher’s dog, used to subdue an animal for slaughter. It was then bred to participate in the “sport” of bullbaiting, an extremely cruel activity. The original Bulldog had to be courageous, very ferocious and savage. It also had to be almost insensitive to pain. Many of the features in the current Bulldog Standard are derived from the physical requirements needed by these dogs.

When bull baiting was outlawed in England in 1835, the Bulldog, as it then existed, had outlived its purpose and would no longer exist as a breed. However, a group of Bulldog lovers felt that the breed should not disappear and decided to preserve it. In order to preserve the breed, they had to remove its undesirable fierce characteristics, while preserving and accentuating its finer qualities.
