I have a Rottweiler puppy crossed with a Siberian, I loved the name Kiki because of how loving he looks with one blue eye and one black eye, he is so cute, I don't know but when I called him by that name Kiki started jumping and wagging his tail I think he loves that name ❤️

I love the names Kiki so much!! I named my puppy Kiki and it suits her perfectly! I adopted her from a lovely breeder as she has swimmers syndrome so can’t walk. If I hadn’t adopted her she would have been put down!! Kiki is now 4 weeks old and living her life to the fullest. That is an opinion on the name from a dog owners perspective. I am also a dog trainer. I train many dogs and love to play with them as well. The name Kiki is great as it only has two syllables which means that it can very clearly be heared by your dog and understood. Also the name is great as it is very unique so can stand out amongst other dogs names being called. Kiki if a fabulous name and if you like it then call you little canine conpanion it!!!

Awesome name, unique, fun, and practical, just like our smart, loving toy poodle. It just fits her personality.

I live in NB, Canada and we have a dog named Kiki. I picked it out but no particular reason besides thinking it was cute. She's a mix breed with about 6 different breeds.
