Our guide to the best energetic dog names

People talk about “having the zoomies” as if it’s a brief blitz of energy that a dog exerts once dinner has been demolished. But some dogs are just naturally rambunctious to the point that they spend most of the day zooming. And this relentless energy is often what makes larger, sporty breeds so much fun to adopt.

If you’re adopting a pup that just never slows down, what better way to represent their zest for life than with an energetic name? The list above draws upon concepts like speed, athleticism and the natural world to offer some fantastic monikers for your spritely dog.

For male dogs, there’s just so much to love about Pronto. It’s a masculine sounding name that conveys the sense of urgency your boy has to explore the world – and because it’s a Spanish word, it carries a nice exotic twist as well. We also love Bullet, which brings a touch of menace to your crazy canine.

For a more classic name that represents power and energy, why not run with Turbo? It’s a cute name for boys that perfectly represents the way your dog’s energy level is always cranked up to the max.
