laugh quietly

I grew up in the UK, and Snickers bars always seemed about as substantial and no-nonsense as a chocolate bar could get.

Personally, I see Snickers working well for powerful looking dogs like Rottweilers and Pitbulls. It's a playful nod to your dog's strength, while making light work of it at the same time. And it's sure to get a chuckle out of anyone who hears it.

You might not know this, but the Mars family, creators of the Snickers bar, were dog lovers themselves. So that's another reason to run with the name Snickers for your boy or girl.

For me, this is a unique and witty choice for a dog. And it's also quite simply delicious!
