We want to help you out when it comes to the difficult but important task of naming your pet. When choosing a name, it says as much about you and your pet, so take care to get this right.

It’s difficult to name your new pet straight away, like human babies, we sometimes must wait for their characters to develop and name them accordingly. Can you imagine calling your pet a big bold name, when they are timid and shy. Choose a name that reflects your pets’ character and charm. Take a few days to reflect and let them adjust to their new surroundings.

Some ideas for naming your pet could come from the movies, a popular name is Fraggle as in Fraggle rock. Others choose famous people even going so far as to call their pets Queenie or Duchess so using status in the monarchy as a benchmark for characters.
