Most Popular Dog Nicknames

What is your pet name for your dog?

Not what you call to make your dog come, because in that case mine would be “cookie” or “treaty”.

But the one you say in a baby voice or when you are telling them how much you love them.

Don’t feel silly. It is a term of endearment to call your pup “champ” or “buddy”, even if his name is Hank.

But let’s be honest, we all have more than one nickname for our beloved dogs. We name them after our favorite movie character, band, town, etc., but how often do you call your dog by its name?

Not very often, right?
