What Makes Great Male Weenie Dog Names As Good As They Are?

With the classics out of the way, let’s take a second to look into what makes a great dog name before we move on to more suggestions. Naturally, the first criterion for a dog name is that it should be something you’ll like saying. After all, the dog itself doesn’t really care what scribbles are drawn on the front page of its passport.

So, first and foremost, the perfect male wiener dog names are those that feel personal to you. It may even be as simple as the name of a favorite author or a movie character – there’s nothing wrong with that.

If we want to get a bit into the “science” of dog names we can mention that giving your dog a human name can lead you to anthropomorphize a pet which some experts don’t recommend. On the other hand – a lot of us find that quite fun. And then, there’s the perceived importance of the dog’s name for training which suggests that a name should be clear, unique, and short.

Then again, dachshunds are rarely used as working dogs today. So, there’s nothing wrong with picking a name that just feels right and fun for you and your family.
