What to Do if Your Girl Dog Doesn’t Like The Name?

You may wonder whether it is possible, as you are the owner, and think that dog will listen to you at all points. However, do not be surprised when your dog does not want to react to your calling. Sometimes, it happens in senior dogs that used to have another name and now you changed it or you never knew the previous one.In these situations, you’d better follow the next tactics:
  1. Try to use the girl dog name as much as possible when you play with her. A dog should understand that the atmosphere is positive with only her alongside her owner. In fact, she will think one else there can have the same name.
  2. Try to minimize shouting with your girl dog name. For discipline, you may do it, however, a dog will immediately have the reaction of “danger”. Besides, dogs the same as a human may retire into the shell and then require vet help.
  3. Try to pet your dog by repeating her name. It will strengthen her bond with you, and she will understand that she is doing great. Do not forget to add to the name such words as Good Girl, Great Girl, and many others.

Last but not least, try to monitor when your dog gives you the back reaction. Maybe you use other names or words, so she tends to come to you upon listening to them. Some dogs may wrongly interpret when you address them or someone else. Check it out with the names of your friends or family members.You Want to Change a Name When a Dog Got Used to First Name?It is worth answering this question, as many dog owners-to-be think — what if I want to change the girl dog name in the future. Commonly, such practices should be avoided because it works the same with people. We do not change our names except for some valid reasons, and we definitely get used to the names given to us since birth. A dog will also stick to her first name and when you start calling her differently, there will be only questions and misunderstanding on her face.
