Whether it's your first pet or you have several four-legged friends at home, naming a new dog is always an important (and sometimes difficult) task. There are so many names out there, it can be tough to know where you even start. That's why we rounded up 50 boy dog names that are perfect whether your pup is a puppy, a senior pet, or somewhere in the middle. To make the naming process easier, we recommend having everyone in your family pick out a few of their favorites. Then, go through each male dog name and come up with a handful that everyone likes. After that, try calling your dog by each one, and see if they respond to any of the names. Plus, once you start calling your pet by the names, you can decide which one you like to say out loud the best. (After all, once you start teaching your pooch tricks, you're going to be talking to them and calling out their name quite a bit.)
