What is a Good Name for a Dachshund?

Dachshunds have a unique disposition, a bold attitude, and a colorful personality. A good dachshund name should be something that you can think of quickly and is easy to spell over the phone to your veterinarian. Dachshund names don’t have to be sausage or hot dog shape-based names (sausage dog names).

How to Choose A Dog’s Name:

I know it can be hard coming up with an awesome name that suites your new dog.  You just met your pup, you still have to learn so much about them.

Easy Tips to Choose Your Dog’s Name:

  • Pick a name that pertains to YOU.  Something that is your favorite or something that is special to you.  Then, as you get to know your Dachshund, you can add in a middle name that goes along with your dog’s unique qualities.
  • Exclude names that sound similar to dog training commands.  For example, names that sound like or include the words ‘No’,  ‘stay’,  ‘sit’,  ‘come’.
  • Avoid choosing a name that sounds too close to a family member’s name.  This may cause some confusion when teaching your dog his name.
