How Do I Play?
This is your pet, and although it doesn't shed, it still needs your
love. With the stylus, you pet your Nintendog, all the way from head
pats to belly rubs. The more love you give, the more your Nintendog will
bond with you. As your puppy becomes your best friend, you use the
built-in microphone to teach your dog its name and many tricks! So after
you train your dog to know its name, it will come to you (and your DS's
bottom screen) when you call its name. After it learns a trick, it will
perform that trick when you tell it to. For example, after it learns the
sit command, your pup will take a seat each time you say "Sit."
Of course, like a real dog, you need to care for your little pup. This
includes regular feeding, watering, walking and bath time. If you're a
person who doesn't constantly play video games, don't worry about
anything bad happening to your Nintendog if you don't get to it every
day. Nintendogs don't die, and they stay puppies forever. If you haven't
played the game for a few days, though, your puppy will be thirsty,
hungry and might need a bath when you start the game up.
Your puppy needs to go out for walks, naturally, but these walks are
special. In addition to giving your pup some exercise, your Nintendog
will come across special item boxes. Inside these boxes are all sorts of
goodies, from apparel to toys. With tons of items to be found, your
Nintendog will always be stylin' or at least have a fun ball to chase
Be The Best
Nintendogs isn't all pet and prim. There are trophies to be won, and
money to be made! Show that your Nintendog is best in show by winning
the three events: disc competition, agility trials and obedience trials.
In obedience, you score big points when your puppy does a certain set of
tricks at your comman. Here, grooming and a good relationship with its
master is vital. With agility trials and the disc competition, you'll
use the touch screen to throw a flying disc or lead your dog through an
agility course. These two events require some practice before you enter
(although some dogs are just naturals at catching a disc).
With the money that you earn from the events, you can buy supplies and
more dogs from the kennel! Don't let your Nintendog get lonely. You can
keep up to three dogs at a time, and you can store more at the "dog
hotel" where they'll look after your dogs.
Bark, Bark, Bark!
If another person is playing Nintendogs within the Nintendo DS's
wireless range, the two of you can meet up in Bark Mode. When you go
into Bark Mode, your DS searches for a wireless partner. When you've
found a match, your dog will play with that person's dog!
You can also bring gifts into Bark Mode and swap them with fellow
Nintendogs players. Also, you can unlock a breed on your game card by
meeting a dog of that same breed in Bark Mode.
Put a puppy inside your Nintendo DS! Nintendogs brings puppy love to a
whole new level!
This truly unique experience will do more than bring you and your
Nintendog together. It opens your eyes to a whole new way to play video
