With many expecting the pitter patter of tiny pads over the holiday season, PIA suggests taking your time with naming your beloved new friend.

 “A great tip when considering a name is to have a few,” Nadia suggests. “Sometimes you’ll have a certain name in mind then when your pet arrives home he/she simply doesn’t suit the chosen name.”

 Being sensible in your naming choice is also a good idea.

“Remembering that your precious pup or kitten will be a cherished family member for up to 20 years, so choose a name that will suit them when they are fully grown dogs and cats.”
