People buy Yorkshire Terriers more on fashions than on their own. But after a while, this little dog occupies all your thoughts. Dogs are always very fond of their owner, infinitely loyal to him, and a person usually responds to the dog in the same way. And the desire of each owner to give the dog a beautiful and sonorous name is quite understandable. But sometimes this is not so easy to do.
You can give your pet a nickname based on the rules established by the Russian Kennel Federation (RKF). These rules state that a puppy with a pedigree must have a nickname that would confirm its origin. Therefore, the name of the kennel is added to the name of the puppy, which is engaged in breeding and selling such puppies. Thus, the puppy has not only a first name, but also a surname. The dog's surname should be no longer than fifteen letters.
Breeders keep a strict record of all puppies born in their kennel, including litters. Letters of the alphabet are used to denote litters. All dog names and litters must be registered with the RKF. They are assigned a certain letter of the alphabet, the repetition of which is possible only after 15 years. As a result, your pet's nickname should start with the letter that is indicated in the registration book. If you bought a Yorkshire terrier puppy at a club, then he will not have a surname. You will be given a metric and offered to choose a nickname for the puppy with the letter indicated in the registration book.
It is believed that a dog can choose a name for itself. Give your puppy a few nicknames and then test how he responds to them. There is another option. Take a close look at who your puppy looks like, and, based on this, give him a nickname.
You should not give puppies nicknames that are difficult to pronounce and consist of several words. Nicknames for girls should be gentle and melodic, and for boys snooty and playful. Also, do not call puppies by the names of people. Imagine that your boyfriend or girlfriend is named the same as your puppy. A very ugly situation can turn out. It's good if your friend has a sense of humor, and if not. In any case, the choice is yours.
