Do you have a nickname for your dog? (Maybe we should ask “how many nicknames do you have for your dog?”)
A while back, we asked DogTipper.com’s readers about the nicknames they’d given their dogs…and the results were amazing. Over 1,000 dog lovers responded; we saw nicknames of every type but it seems that most nicknames fell into a few broad categories.
Rhyming Dog Nicknames
- Ravey Baby
- Spotty Dotty
- Buddy Wuddy
- Teddy Weddy
Nicknames that Referenced the Dog’s Size and Shape
- Rolly Polly (guess that one could also fall in the rhyming category)
- Lil Bits
- Short-boy (a dachshund)
- Teeny (we don’t know but we’re picturing a Great Dane)
- King Kong
- Miss Piggy
Nicknames that Reference the Dog’s No-So-Great Traits

And in the interest of full disclosure, we must tell you that our dogs’ nicknames are Tiki-Biki for our dog Tiki and Bar-Bar for Barli…our Irie was Irie-Wirey for our dog Irie. And we also have Poochichi and Poochy-Woochy which can be used for everyone.
