Stupid question - how hard is it for a 1yo dog to get used to a new name?
Easy. Name is for getting his attention basically. So click and treat for eye contact or generally looking towards you when you say his name. Gradually increase the distractions around when you say name and reward for attention shifting to you.

Changed 5 year old Ginger from Lily. Don't know if that was her actual name or just what the shelter decided to call her. Treats and a couple days and so long as the dog's ears work you can change the name.

I always change the name. Too bad because Bucky was Biscuit which was perfect with Ginger.
