If Netflix & chill are the vibe then we are here for it. Get cozy, grab the popcorn, and snuggle up with the best 4-legged snuggle buddy you could have.

Is there anything more elegant than to name your pup after a crystal or gem? Asking for a friend.

To travel with your pup, or not to travel with your pup - that is the question

Best female dog name
The stats are in and the number one female dog name of 2022 is Luna! If you don’t feel your pup is a Luna, that’s ok, there’s literally hundreds or thousands of names out there to choose from.
Best male dog name
The number one male dog name of 2022 is Max! It’s a good boy name for sure, but not every dog has the Max vibe. Ultimately the best dog names for a male puppy is going to be the one you choose.
Since naming your puppy is probably going to be the first thing you do, remember to get their dog name tags so they can proudly wear them so if they ever get lost they can be returned to you.
