#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “pup”, “paw”, “fur “and “leash”, you can see that while these words can be related to Dog, they also suggest that you can expect different services for your dog in the business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

My Shortlist:

Puppy Trail


Planet Canine

Woof Recess


Removed Ideas:

The Paw Haven

The Fury Effect



Golden Pup

Little Furry


The K9 Den

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great Dog business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Puppy Trail

This name conveys focus; mostly on raising puppies


This name conveys quality yet fun services.

Planet Canine

This name conveys dedication to making sure canines are having the best time.

Woof Recess

This name conveys care and quality services.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great dog business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful dog businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

RoyalCanin Logo

Royal Canin comes with two words with obvious meaning. Royal conveys quality and ‘canin’ is French meaning relating to dogs. The founder, Jean Cathary came up with the name for his first formula out of the belief that dog ailments were caused by poor diet. Since then, the name has grown to be one of the greatest dog business brands.

PawShake Logo

Pawshake achieves a personal connection by having a simple and yet unique business name. The business is seen to offer a more hospitable and fun environment for canines while their name remains catchy, rhythmic and people can easily relate to dogs.

BarkingMad Logo

Barkingmad business name might sound ironic but it’s very relatable. Specializing in dog sitting services, this type of business naming works best for them and their audience. They come out as a highly professional brand, leaving no question in what they are offering.

5 Tips for naming your dog business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused Dog terms like Fun, service, and dogs. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real dog business named “Barkingmad”.

Literally, this name conveys that the business is excited to barking. At a deeper level though, this is a great name that translates the enthusiasm and passion of dog care: they are not just excited but also experienced to provide luxury dog care.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (PawPups)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Golden Pup, Little Furry)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable dog business names could be:

  • Dolgado
  • PawPups
  • Petfolic

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Dog walker and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Doggie walker, canine walker or dogs walker.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
