Our guide to the best summer dog names

The beauty of summer lies in its ability to bring people together, to create a sense of community and shared experience. Whether it's spending lazy afternoons lounging on the beach or enjoying a backyard barbecue with friends and family, summer is a time for connection and joy.

There’s also a sense of freedom and adventure that comes with the season. With schools out and vacations happening, there’s a feeling of possibility and excitement in the air. Summer is a time to explore new places, try new things, and make memories that will last a lifetime. And for pup parents, this means a lot of time spent with our furry companions, creating beautiful experiences for each other in the sun.

For male dogs, we really like the simplicity and laid-back nature of Breeze. It gives us relaxed feelings of walking by the ocean, and it’s uncommon enough that your pup will really stand out from the pack. We also like Sandy for boys. This works equally well for male and female dogs, but it’s a classic choice that’s easily recognizable for dogs, carrying two syllables and a vowel sound at the end.

If you’re looking for something completely outside of the box, why not name your pup Zomer? This is the Dutch word for summer, and it’ll really take people by surprise when you tell them that. It adds a nice splash of culture to your furry friend too!

For female dogs, there are some great choices. Ocean elicits relaxed, summer vibes right off the bat, and it works particularly well for water dogs or just larger breeds that feel at home wading in lakes. We also think Ruby works well as a summer-inspired name, being one of the more fiery gemstones. It’s a classic name that works particularly well for Golden Retrievers and Labradors.

Finally, you can’t really go wrong with Summer! It seems like an obvious one, but this name just works so well for dogs large and small. And it’ll help bring back warm feelings of your favorite season all year round.
