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:

It can be hard to come up with a name for your new Dachshund puppy since there is still so much to learn about them.

  • 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 personality.
  • Exclude names that sound similar to dog training commands, this can be confusing for your dog.  For example, names that include the sound ‘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.
