Yorkies are chosen for their explosive gaiety, courage, beauty, and for the fact that they are very mobile: you can carry dogs everywhere, buy them beautiful suits and magnificent collars. Naturally, the name of the Yorkie should be appropriate.
It is necessary
- - access to the Internet;
- - catalog of nicknames for dogs;
- - puppy metric.
The rules established by the Russian Kennel Federation (RKF) state that a puppy with a pedigree must wear a nickname confirming its origin. Therefore, in the name of the puppy, or rather, in his surname, the name of the kennel where the breeding and sale of this breed takes place is added. The surname of the doggie should not be longer than 15 letters.
Please note that breeders keep a strict record of all puppies born in their kennel (including litters). Litters are designated by letters of the alphabet. All dog names and litters are registered in the RKF without fail. They are assigned a certain letter of the alphabet, the reuse of which is possible only after fifteen years. Thus, your dog's name must start with the letter shown in the registration book.
If you purchased a Yorkshire Terrier from a club, it will not have any last name. You will be given a metric and will be offered a choice of a nickname for the puppy, starting with a specific letter written in the registration book.
It is believed that dogs can choose their own name. To test this statement, give your Yorkie a few nicknames and watch which one he will respond to.
You can give a name to the dog, based on its external features (similarity with someone or something, the presence of some special marks in the coloring, etc.)
Don't use hard-to-pronounce, multi-word nicknames. Nicknames for girls should be tender and melodic, and for boys - cocky and playful.
Don't use human names for puppies. Some people don't have enough sense of humor to calmly react to such similarities, and as a result, you can get into a rather unpleasant situation.
There are sites on the Internet with catalogs of names for dogs, often sorted into nicknames for girls and boys.
