"More than meets the eye!"
5 stars"

This highly interactive game is addictive! The puppy's charac­teristics and responses to you are so realistic that you naturally want to “play” with it more! The bonus of this game is that the puppy doesn't die if you don't play the game for some time – although it will probably need a good bath, feed and water when you next play with it!

It's worthwhile trying out the different breeds of puppies available in the kennel as they all have their own special talents which will shine through at the competitions.

An added bonus is being able to swap breeds wirelessly with a friend (if they have another Nintendogs game).

All up, a great game for young and old alike.

"Great tool for kids to learn what is neccessary owning a pet"
5 stars"

Truley highly addictive. The interativity with the dogs and their personalities is what makes this so great. Even just taking them for a walk. My grandaughter just loves feeding and playing with them. She can spend hours interacting with them and has even used some of the training techniques with her own dog. Great to pick back up after leaving for a while and no fear of the dog dying so no annoying beeping and midnight dashes to save. Would highly recommend.

"Surprisingly fun!"

Very good game, especially if you have friends with the game. The dogs are very realistic in the way they react and the contests are very challenging. If you are into animals or tamagotchi, I reccommend this game :).


Nintendogs lets you pick a puppy from a variety of breeds available at the beginning of the game. As you start spending time with your pup you can throw flying discs and balls to improve the pup's agility. You can bathe it when it gets dirty and use your own personal voice commands to train the dog to do tricks. If you train it well enough, your dog will excel in obedience and agility trials and disc competitions, which will earn money that you can use to buy other supplies and puppy breeds. When you earn enough cash, you can buy even more puppies to live with their original pup. Players can socialize their pups by walking them around the town, where they will meet neighborhood dogs, and maybe even find new toys. Trips to the park and gym offer valuable training time to prepare for agility trials and disc competitions. Over time, the pup's stamina will increase so players can explore farther and farther.

  • Pet the pup, acquire and play with more than 100 items like tennis balls, flying discs and even clothing accessories. Teach your dog to do tricks by creating your own personalized voice commands.
  • Train your pups well and compete in obedience and agility trials. Win these competitions to earn cash, which you can use to buy supplies and even more dogs to keep your first puppy company.
  • Walk puppies around the town to meet neighborhood dogs or interact wirelessly with friends’ Nintendogs using the innovative Bark Mode.
