So our family dog recently passed away and my dads looking at getting a new puppy. My problem is my dad is very adamant on her name being Noel. It’s what he wanted to name our old dog and me and my sister were against it. I’m just afraid that Noel is to similar to the word no. And since I’m the one training her and raising her like our last one I want to use the right command from the beginning. So does anyone think the name Noel and the word no are to close and if so what other words could I use instead of no. My biggest concern is if god forbid someone would have to tell her no that doesn’t know her when me or my dad wouldn’t be around. I never had a problem with my dogs being mean in the past and they are boxers wich are usually very friendly I just like to prepare for the worst and want her training to go as smooth as possible.
