PAW Patrol is still one of the most popular children’s shows around since it debuted in 2013. If your kids like animals, particularly cute dogs, then they are bound to love PAW Patrol!
Whether you’re here to keep up with your children’s interests or to find the best PAW Patrol dog names for a new addition to your family, we’re here with the names of all the PAW Patrol characters.
We’ve even ranked them in order of popularity, thanks to The Top Tens.
Full disclosure: one of my guilty pleasures is watching the show over my daughter’s shoulder while hanging the washing… and singing along to the songs, even the Pup Pup Boogie!
With that embarrassment out the way, and without further ado, let’s dive into the PAW Patrol character’s names. Ready, Set… Get Wet!
Ranked: Top 10 PAW Patrol Names
|1. Chase||The number 1 place goes to Chase, the German Shepherd police and traffic officer, and super-spy dog. After Ryder, he was the 1st member on the team and seems to be the most responsible of all the pups. “Chase is on the case!”|
|2. Marshall||This Dalmation pup is arguably the most adorable – and clumsy! – member of the team. A versatile, fire-fighting pup with a hose and ladder to match. “Ready for a ruff-ruff rescue!”|
|3. Skye||The original lady-pup! It’s a shame there was only one main female character so early on, but this Cockapoo’s high-flying bravery knows no bounds. “This pup’s gotta fly!”|
|4. Rocky||The king of recycling! Rocky is a mixed-breed pup who is always on hand to represent team-green, with a chirpy quote like “Don’t lose it, reuse it!” to inspire the future planet-savers. Just don’t put him in water!|
|5. Zuma||Water brave character this pup is! Seriously though, water is his domain, and with quotes like “Let’s dive in!” and “Ready, set, get wet!” you can see why.|
|6. Rubble||Rubble is the rough and tough looking Bulldog who is really a big softy. He handles all things construction and excavation. “Rubble on the double!”|
|7. Everest||Everest came in as the 2nd lady-pup in the team in Season 2 (a smart decision from the producers). She is a Husky who handles the snow and mountain related tasks.|
|8. Ryder||Ryder is the team leader. He put the PAW Patrol together, designed all the gadgets, vehicles, and outfits, and he’s only 10 years old! “Whenever you’re in trouble, just yelp for help!”|
|9. Tracker||Tracker is a Chihuahua with excellent hearing and a Jeep, who lives in the jungle with Carlos. He joins the team as the 8th member from the second-half of season 3. “I’m all ears!”|
|10. Mayor Humdinger||Interestingly, the villainous Mayor of Foggy Bottom and boss of the Kit-tastrophe Crew is far more popular than the Mayor of Adventure bay. Go figure!|
Less Popular Character’s Names

Dog Naming Guide
Do you have a dog who is your own hero pup? Then it’s only fitting that you give them a name from another hero, like one of the PAW Patrol pups names!
Follow this dog naming advice and you can’t go wrong! How to choose a dog name:
- A short name is better. One or two syllables is much easier for your dog to learn, and for you to say. Again. And again!
- Choose a name that doesn’t sound similar to any of the commands you’re going to use, like “sit, stay, come,” etc.
- Say it out loud many times in an instruction such as “Skye, dinner!” or “Come, Rocky!” before you settle on it. Imagine shouting it out loud in public.
If you follow those three steps, then you’re well on your way to choosing a perfect pup name!
The PAW Patrol names in this list include all the characters and are mostly sorted into a rank by popularity.
We hope that you are now a bit more clued up on the characters, and the pups’ names, than you were before.
Now, go and impress your children with your newfound knowledge! Or better yet, by giving your family’s newcomer a dashing hero name!
