Pet name advice

Dogs and cats find short names easier to understand. Long and complex names are difficult to interpret.

Always stick with a name once your pet is older - renaming a pet can really confuse it. However when they are young you can experiment to see which they respond to best.

Avoid names which are similar to common words in your native language, otherwise your pet may think you're talking to (or about) them when you're not!

Hard sounds are easier for your pet to interpret, for example Tigger.
