Top Dog Names for 2018

Deciding what to call your new pup can be a very hard task. Especially when there are multiple decision-makers in the family who all want a say.

From our experience, we find the best way to decide is to come up with a shortlist of dog names based on every family member's input.

Need inspiration? The team at Pet Insurance Australia have compiled a list of the top dog names for 2018.

The list was formed after gathering data from more than 150,000 pets who were newly insured in Australia in 2018. See the results below...

Now that you are inspired, it's time to start crafting your shortlist! Have fun with it, and just remember that it is good to have a shortlist, but not actually choose a name until you meet your furry new friend. You might be set on calling your pup, 'Cooper', only to meet your fur baby and decide he's more a 'Oscar' or even 'Porkchop'!
