Adopting a Dog?

What about shelter pets who got names before they got forever homes? Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Karen London suggests it’s perfectly fine for adoptive pet parents to select new names. What’s important is that they take time to introduce these new names to avoid confusion. Additional positive reinforcement, Dr. London adds, can ensure dogs begin answering to their names quickly and helps promote a stronger bond.
