Boring Misalanius and cool rare items!
You remember all those sticks and tissue boxes that you find on walks? You probably sell them. Well don't! Wait till you get 99 of them! Then the game can't give you anymore of them, so it will give you the rare stuff! To do this make sure you walk everyday, getting the presents. But that's not the only way to get this stuff! See if your friends will give you their almost worthless items! But if you sell them you will always have room for more boring stuff, so don't, please don't, sell them unless the survival of your dogs is counting on it! =D

Nintendogs: Labrador and Friends Tips

Back to top
A better way to get items on walks :)
If you want better items when you are on your walks, here is what you do.

-Feed your dog NATURAL dog food (NOT canned or regular).
-Give him MILK to drink.
-Rub his BELLY and EARS.

Doing those will make your dog feel more confident on the walk.

(These next ones are optional)
Next:
-Put the "Lucky Collar" on your dog (If you have it).
-Bring out the "Clover Clock" (If you have it).
-Play Flower Waltz before you leave the house (If you have it).

Doing these will INCREASE the chance of finding rare items.

If you don't have the "Lucky Collar", the "Clover Clock", or the record
Flower Waltz, that's ok. Just make sure you do the other three, so your dog
is more confident on the walk.

When you are mapping out your walk (The places where you will go), try and
hit as many "?" as you can. You might find more (and better) items the more "?" you hit. Now if you find something like.. Ex: A Space Shutle Toy, A Globe, ect.. and you think it's worthless.. think again! The Space Shutle Toy is worth over 500$! So even if you think you found something worthless, check the Secondhand shop to see how much it is.

Hope this has helped!

A cheat for a walk......
I get so so so annoyed having to wait half an hour to go on another walk, but luckily I found a way to prevent exact that...

All you have to do is go to the park for the last part of your walk and put on an accessory ( you have to be wearing an accessory ). This automatically saves the game. Go home and immediatly switch off your DS. Turn it back on and you can go for a walk again. Bear in mind that you will have to keep on changing accessories every time you do this, and your dogs courage for walks will not go up.....

This worx for all copies of nintendogs BTW,

Hope I've helped,

Love,

Beth

A cheat for heaps upon heaps of money
Do the maximum number of contests (3), save it so you keep all the money. Then turn off the power, easy enough, eh? Then turn your ds back on, but click the little ds logo under all the options (pictochat, download play, ect.) and go to the date, set the date back TWO days, then go to the time adjustment, and put the time at 23:59, then turn off the ds. Go and turn your ds back on and go to play nintendogs. Pet your dog, yadda yadda ya, until the minute is up. You can now do the three contests and learn 3 tricks all over! Vouila, money in grosses.

NOTE- when you do this, when it goes to another day, you have to wait an extra 30 minutes to take your dog on a walk, so before you do this cheat, be sure to go on a walk!

A faster way to clean your dog
I get so annoyed when I'm washing a very dirty dog because it takes sooo long. Now I don't get annoyed anymore because of this simple cheat. All you have to do is scrub it until the bubbles are light brown. Then, you get the shower head and wash all the suds off. When you scrub again all the suds have turned white and you only have to scrub for 1 or 2 more minutes.




Hope this helped,

A tip about the"Talking Bird"
Sometimes you can find a talking bird in the discount shop. If you take it out and press the button, you can speak into the microphone to say a message to your dog(s). Most will bark at it, as if they are scared, but some dogs will actually play with it. Note: The parrot will repeat your recorded message very fast, so say it slowly.

Agility contest
If you want to do really well in agility contests, get a small dog like a poodle. They can run very fast. Train at the gym on every walk you take, and when your dog is really good, feed it, give it water, give it a bath, etc, save your game (but don't turn the power off) then enter it in the contest. Look at the leader's score and time and keep it in mind. Then try to be quicker than the leader. If you do too many faults, or you are too slow, turn off your DS before the scores come up. Then turn it back on and try again

Better Competition Results

Better Way to become Friends with your Neighbours
Do you want your pup to become friends with neigbours? Well just tug the leash to get closer to the other dog, but the things is, you need to wait for the other dog to lay down, because if the other dog is jumping and stading up, sometimes your dog and the neighbour's dog will fight, so wait until it's laying down.

P.S: It might take a few tries and tugs to become friends...

Dogs React to Music!
Get one of the blue records and the dogs will react differently to each song.
For Example:

Naptime: Lulls them to sleep
Surprise: Wakes them up
Colonel Bogey: They all march in line
Toreador: They get a little bit feisty
Flower Waltz: They all start dancing

HOWEVER: This will not work for unnamed dogs.

Free Gifts And Toys
While you can purchase new toys for your pup to play with, you can actually get some goodies for free if you know where to look. When you take your Nintendog on a walk, outline a path that goes by the blue "?" boxes marked on the map. Your puppy is likely to run off screen at those points and come back with a present for you! Your puppy will also randomly run to get presents for you if you leave the game on the "Home" screen for long. If left unattended, your Nintendog will leave the apartment and stay off screen. Simply tap on the center button (the circular one) to whistle and call back your pup who should be carrying a new present.

Getting A Gift and a very nice
On your walk, draw right over a question box. If your lucky, it will be a present. If you are even more lucky, it will be something you have never ever had before. If you find a Lucky Collar, put it on your other dog and go for another walk. You will be more likely to get good presents. If there's a present on the side of the road, jerk your leash backwards and you dog will most likely pick up the present. Touch your leash to control it. Don't let go of that leash! Getting a present on the sidewalk works best if your dog is running. To run, jerk the leash forwards. Now, there's one more present, poop. To clean this "present" up, just touh it. Hope I helped!

Go for walks more!!
Do you have one dog, and would like to take it for walks more in half an hour?

You need another accessory first!!

What you have to do is:

1. Plan your route on your walk, and at the end, put a park.
2. When you are in that park, change accessories.
3. When you press back, it saves.
4. When the saving message goes, switch it off (If you do it before the message goes completely, you will risk your account data.)
5. When you switch your DS back on, you should have the items AND you can do walks again.

Note: Your dog will NOT have more courage (Want to go any further) by using this method!

Helpful Hints on Dogs and Walks
Dogs:

(For beginners. Read the personality of each dog before getting it. This and the way you reaise it will afeect how it grows up.

(For the more experienced). There are some more difficult tricks you can teach dogs. These
include:

Laying Jump: Get your dog to lay down on his back. Don't pet him just yet. While on his back, command him to jump. If he is healthy and well-fed, he'll jump from this position! Sometimes your puppy won't be in the mood to do this trick and will simply stand before jumping. If he does it correctly, touch the training icon and say "laying jump".

Handstand: Have your dog lay down, then tell him to stand. It sounds confusing, but he will understand that you want him to stand on his front paws! It's more difficult, but you can also slide the stylus down and up quickly when your puppy is in a playful mood (if he shakes his butt) to perform this trick. Tap that training icon and say "handstand", you'll definitely want to repeat this trick!

Walks:

(For beginners). When on a walk, go through as many ? boxes as you can. Some have presents, which can be sold to make money, and some have DS characters who are also walking their dogs. They will give you helpful hints with the game.

(For the more experienced). Need more good presents like the Jack Russell Book? There are no guarantees, but try this:
1. Press the Go Out button.
2. Go to Info.
3. Go to Trainer Info.
4. Go to Birthady. Set it as the date today.
5. Where a Lucky Collar and Four Leaf Clover Clock if you've got them and go on a walk. This way you have a 50% more chance of getting valuable items.

Jumping puppies
When you are taking your puppy for a walk, your puppy will walk at 3 different speeds. Slow, Medium, and Fast. Normally, your puppy will walk either Slow or Medium, but somtimes, your puppy will burst with energy and start running. When your puppy starts running, use your stylus, and grab the leash and quickly yank it up. You have to do this quickly because your puppy doesn't run for very long. If you yanked the leash in time, your puppy would have literally jumped into the air. If you do this quite quickly, you might be able to have him/her jump a couple times. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />

Making friends with dogs on walks

Have you ever wanted, say, something like a new treat or dog food? You can check the shop but they most likely won't have it. And if they do, it'll be expensive. Don't check the shop. Get a dog and go walking. On your journey you'll see a shop with a bone on top. Go into that shop and finish the trail. After that, you're dog will walk into the shop. Have a look around there. They usually get great new items for CHEAP!!! I got a dog biscuit for 40c. I got 99 at the moment. Only 5 dollars something. You can also get new toys! How cool! I recommend this definitely!

No more potty breaks.
I have discovered (But I probably wasn't the first) a way to stop those annoying potty breaks your dogs do on your walks together. All know, that when your walking, if your dog(s) starts sniffing around on the ground, they want to use the bathroom. That, or they want to remark territory another dog had claimed. If you are in a hurry, and don't want to have to pick up any *accidents*, all you have to do, is use your stylus, and grab your dog's leash. Rapidly, start yanking, and pulling, and moving the leash all over. Your dog will be pulled out of using the bathroom. Once you do this, your dog will continue walking, like it never needed to use the bathroom in the first place. Doing this WILL NOT harm your dog in ANY way, and is perfectly safe for never-ending bladder puppies. This hint HAS BEEN tested, and works perfectly for ANY Nintendog game.

No more territorry marking
Isn't it anoying when you hit somewhere on the map where another dog has pottied and your dog stops to mark it again, well, heres a tip that lets you completley skip them out.

First you need to make sure your dog is running up to it on the map (to make your dog run quickly yank the coller to the right side of the screen), then, as soon as you get literally right over the top of the wee image on the map, yank the leash sharply toward the top right of the screen to make your dog jump. you need to get it exactly right and if you do the dog will just carry on running as if there was nothing there!!

Hope this helped!!

Ribbon Glory
This is a little secret that I think I should definitely share. Okay here it goes.

You know how as you make progress in contests and win up to more levels (like Beginner or Championship) they get harder. Right? Well, if you have either the Green Pearl Ribbon or the Purple Pearl Ribbon wear it. It will help you do better in the contests! So if your dog is bad at jumping and you wear on of the ribbons, he/she will jump good on the jumps!

Sometimes you may think that things in the pet supply store are rips. For example £40 for a brush?! Easily solved. Go for a walk and go to the building with a bone on it. It's the discount shop.

Scrubbly Bubbly and Going places
When you give your dog a bath, or brush him / her, scrub or brush in a circular motion on their elbow or knee and they will relax and enjoy their bath / brushing more.When brushing, the doggy you are brushing will keep waving its arms in the air, but keep the brush in the same exact place!

When you are on a walk and you get a "red" or "green" hat, it is just the hat Mario or Luigi wear.

If you want to enter the agility trial, you have to take your dog to the gym at least once.To get to the gym, just go on a walk an go into the biggest place you see other than the park by the beach.

Simple Hints and Tips
These tips are probably obvious to regular Nintendogs players. But new players might not know them.



Right before a contest...

Obedience:
1. Pet your dog and train it with as many tricks as you can. Remember to train him/her with the required tricks for that level of competition before getting into advanced tricks.
2. Give your dog natural food (not canned or regular food) and give your dog milk.
3. Then, wash your dog with the CORRECT SHAMPOO. [Go to the main menu and click on your dog's name to find out what type of hair they have: short or long.]
4. Next, brush your dog with the CORRECT BRUSH. The rubber brush is for short haired dogs, and the wire brush is for long haired dogs. After this, it should say that your dog is beautiful and feeling very good.
5. To raise its confidence, pet your dog and train it with each trick that he/she knows.
6. Now, put a lucky collar on your dog (this is optional, for not everyone has this item) and bring him/her to the competition. Your dog should do very well and win 1st place if you have trained him/her correctly. Also, make sure not to discipline your dog if he/she gets something wrong. Yelling or hitting your dog will only bring DOWN its confidence and make it angry with you. When you get home (whether or not you won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place) give your dog a few treats. This will make your dog love you, and your dog will be happy.

Agility:
1. Take your dog to the Gymnasium to practice for agility competitions. The more you practice, the more confident your dog will be, and the more likely he/she will win.
2. Repeat steps 2 through 4 of the Obedience tips.
3. Pet your dog. Rub its belly and its ears. This will raise its confidence and your dog will love you. :]
4. Put a green or purple pearl ribbon on your dog for good luck on jumps. (This is optional, for not everyone has these items.)
5. Take your dog to the competition and hope for the best. Also, make sure not to discipline your dog if he/she gets something wrong. Yelling or hitting your dog will only bring DOWN its confidence and make it angry with you. When you get home (whether or not you won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place) give your dog a few treats. This will make your dog love you, and your dog will be happy.

Disc:
1. Take your dog to the Park to practice for disc competitions. The more you practice, the more confident your dog will be, and the more likely he/she will win.
2. Repeat steps 2 through 4 of the Obedience tips.
3. Pet your dog. Rub its belly and its ears. This will raise its confidence and your dog will love you. :]
4. Put on the lucky collar or the green or purple ribbon. Both are lucky. (This is optional, for not everyone has these items.)
5. Take your dog to the competition and hope for the best. Also, make sure not to discipline your dog if he/she gets something wrong. Yelling or hitting your dog will only bring DOWN its confidence and make it angry with you. When you get home (whether or not you won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place) give your dog a few treats. This will make your dog love you, and your dog will be happy.



Other tips:

If you want extra trainer points...
1. Feed your dogs every time they're hungry.
2. Give your dogs water every time they're thirsty.
3. Wash your dogs once each day, whether they're dirty or not.
4. Brush your dog RIGHT AFTER you bathe them, this will make them EXTRA beautiful. :]
5. Play with your dogs everyday. This could mean throwing a ball or disc and throwing it again when they bring it back, or simply leaving them with a soccer ball, tennis ball, etc.
6. If you plan on leaving your dog alone with a toy, leave it with other dogs.
7. Leave your DS on its charger and leave the brush on your dog's belly (make sure NOT to bathe it before, otherwise it will stop brushing it and tell you your dog is beautiful.) You can leave the brush there overnight as long as it's on the charger. For each real time minute the brush is there, you earn one trainer point. Therefore, when you wake up, you will have tons of trainer points.



Right before a walk:
1. Feed your dog natural food (not canned or regular.)
2. Give him/her milk to drink.
3. Wash your dog with the correct shampoo (long haired or short haired).
4. Brush your dog with the correct brush (rubber brushes are for short haired dogs and wire brushes are for long haired dogs).
5. Pet your dog. Rub his/her belly and ears.
6. (Optional) Put the lucky collar or purple or green pearl ribbon on your dog. Also, take out the clover clock. Play the Flower Waltz record before leaving for a walk.
5. Go on your walk and you will have more of a chance of getting extra/rare items such as: Jack Russell Book, Weird Alien, Gold Bar, RC Helicopter, Combat Helicopter, Records, Meteorite, Asteroid, Pair of deer antlers, Santa hat, Life Ring, Broken Clock, Smart Clock, Wall Clock, Clover Clock, Pearl Necklace, Pizza Disc, Mario Kart, Peach Kart, Bowser Kart, etc.)

When you enter an obedience competition, there's a Free Performance at the end. Here are some advanced tricks that will help you get extra points on this competitions, and will give you extra trainer points for teaching them to your dog.

Laying Jump: Get your dog to lie down on his back. Don't pet him just yet. While on his back, command him to jump. If he is healthy and well-fed, he'll jump from this position! Sometimes your puppy won't be in the mood to do this trick and will simply stand before jumping. If he does it correctly, touch the training icon and say "laying jump".

Back Flip: This trick is similar to the laying jump but is performed from the sitting position. Have your puppy sit, then immediately tell her to jump. If she's in a good mood, she will turn a flip from a seated position. Quickly touch the training icon and say "back flip".

Handstand: Have your dog lie down, and then tell him to stand (beg). It sounds confusing, but he will understand that you want him to stand on his front paws! It's more difficult, but you can also slide the stylus down and up quickly when your puppy is in a playful mood (if he shakes his butt) to perform this trick. Tap that training icon and say "handstand", you'll definitely want to repeat this trick! This trick also works the same as beg in the obedience competition. (Sometimes, your dog will do the handstand trick rather than beg just to impress the judges.) :]

Spin/Turn: Tell your dog to stand (beg), then make him chase his tail (spin). If it works right he'll run around in a circle on his back two paws. Touch the training icon and say "turn" to start learning the trick. This trick also works the same as spin in the obedience competition. (Sometimes, your dog will do the turn trick rather than spin just to impress the judges.) :]

Dance: Tell your dog to stand (beg). Take one of your puppy's paws and motion upwards with it. Help him up and he'll eventually stand on his hind legs unsteadily, giving the illusion of dancing.

Bunny Hop: Tell your puppy to stand, and then tell your puppy to jump. If it works, he'll hop around like a bunny!

Break Dance: Have your puppy roll onto his back, and then tell him to chase his tail. He'll try to do it and end up spinning on his back! Tap your training icon and loudly proclaim "break dance!"

Sneeze: Not as much an advanced trick as an interesting one, touch your dog's nose at any time to make him or her sneeze. Then, touch the training icon and say "sneeze". Don't worry; your puppy won't get sick.

Wag: The excited butt wagging puppies do when they're ready to play can also be taught as a trick. Simply touch the training icon while your puppy is in this mood and say something like "wag" or "butt".

Howl: Sometimes a dog will bark outside of your house, causing your pup to start howling. Catch the training icon quickly and you can teach your dog to howl!



Extra Tip:
~ Do you ever hear a firetruck siren that makes your dogs bark like crazy? This is probably some sort of signal... When you hear this, quickly go on a walk (try to wash your dogs, brush them, feed them, water them, etc. early in the day that way they're ready for their walk.) When you're walking, try to hit as many ? marks as possible. Also, watch the top screen. If you see the little dog on the top stop walking, jerk your dog's leash. This is an indication of garbage or a present. Hopefully it's a present. The firetruck siren before your walk is a hint that you might find the fire hat and get dalmatians when you get home! :]

Solution for Scared Puppies
When your puppies are scared of a toy, they won't always be, so don't just automatically put it away when you see your dog barking at it. Leave it out for a long while and eventually they will grow accustomed to it and learn to love it if you give it to them often.

The obedience competition
When in the obedience competition, make sure you save before you enter the competition. When you are doing the tricks, when it comes to the scores or you feel you have done badly in the show, before before or when the scores come up, restart your DS seeing as you can only enter three competitions a day.

The Perfect Pup
Ok, even though it's only virtual, you may want to consider on what puppy to get, for example, when you go to the Kennel if you click on a dog it will say it's personality, only get the dog with best personality, and after you have your puppy, go out for walks, teach it tricks, enter contests, spend LOADS of time on your DS with it, soon, you will get more trainer points and different puppies in the Kennel, so before you get four puppies in the hotel and 3 with you, wait until there are more in the Kennel, that way you can pick a PERFECT puppy.

Theorys of certain items!
People say that you can get an asteroid only at night i got one 6:30 in the morning, you can only get new years tiara on newyears i got it december 3rd,you can only get a pumpkin collar on halloween i got one on august 5, so my point is you can get any item at any time but items farther away from your house and the more trainer points the more exclusive and rare the gift! I have a peach cart now with over 22,000 trainer points! Beginners better get to work! An easy way to get trainer points is to leave your ds on brushing your dog and you get 3 tp every minute leave your ds on charge all night with the sound down NOT closed! Closing your ds will pause it and is a waste of time! It only takes 2 weeks of doing this to et 5000 + trainer points I hope my extremely long tip helped! lol =)

Tips for Beginners and more Experienced Players
Dogs:

(For beginners. Read the personality of each dog before getting it. This and the way you reaise it will afeect how it grows up.

(For the more experienced). There are some more difficult tricks you can teach dogs. These
include:

Laying Jump: Get your dog to lay down on his back. Don't pet him just yet. While on his back, command him to jump. If he is healthy and well-fed, he'll jump from this position! Sometimes your puppy won't be in the mood to do this trick and will simply stand before jumping. If he does it correctly, touch the training icon and say "laying jump".

Handstand: Have your dog lay down, then tell him to stand. It sounds confusing, but he will understand that you want him to stand on his front paws! It's more difficult, but you can also slide the stylus down and up quickly when your puppy is in a playful mood (if he shakes his butt) to perform this trick. Tap that training icon and say "handstand", you'll definitely want to repeat this trick!

Walks:

(For beginners). When on a walk, go through as many ? boxes as you can. Some have presents, which can be sold to make money, and some have DS characters who are also walking their dogs. They will give you helpful hints with the game.

(For the more experienced). Need more good presents like the Jack Russell Book? There are no guarantees, but try this:
1. Press the Go Out button.
2. Go to Info.
3. Go to Trainer Info.
4. Go to Birthady. Set it as the date today.
5. Where a Lucky Collar and Four Leaf Clover Clock if you've got them and go on a walk. This way you have a 50% more chance of getting valuable items.

To make your dog always bring back frisbee/ball

Trainer Points Overload
Go to the screen where you can brush your dog. Take the brush and put it on him. Leave it there for a few hours. As long as the brush is on him, you get trainer points for every 1 minute. Leave on overnight and you will have a ton of Trainer Points and most likely a brand new dog at the kennel!

Unlockable Breeds easier
Do Bark Mode with a dog in a breed that you don't have.

Example: Do Bark Mode with a Boxer and after you do Bark Mode with that dog, you will be able to buy the Boxer breed at the kennel.

Walks
When you are on a walk and you meet a dog,you can tell if your dog likes that one by the music.If you here drums in the backround(the same music as the "potty" music)then your pup dosn't enjoy that dog's behavior.You can also tell if the other dog is chasing you dog.If you here nice,"romantic"(some people would call it that)music,then your dog likes that dog.If the music stays the same,your dog is still curios about that dog.

While walking your little "angel",if you keep the leash at the same level as your dog's nose,then it will start to trot,but keep it in the same place even if your dog's head lowers or gets higher.

More Colors That Basic 'Three' Colors
So, I'm always looking at different dogs and how they look, act and sound. Something I've noticed, is that on some dogs, instead of your basic orange, white and dark brown/black colors, there's an extra one. For example, if you look at the Chihuahua's, there's the dark brown, the orange & white, the white, and then a more pinkish/peach colored one. This extra one also doesn't have the furry look the other ones do, as in it looks skinnier, and it's tail doesn't have the fluff on it that the other ones do~! Not only that, but based on the breeds personality, color and gender will depend on what type of bark it has. It's neat to look around and zoom in sometimes xD If I find any more, I'll be sure to add them here~

Want to walk all your dogs, but you have to wait so long? Well, just walk one dog. When your back, walk another. Then the finally dog. By that time dog 1 will be ready for walk, so go ahead and walk him/her.
Also, this works well with training dogs. Because dogs sometimes tire, by the time your done walking your other 2 dogs, you can train your first one you started with.

You really don't have to wait 30 minutes after your dog's walk to go on another one. Just change your dog's accessory at the park to save the game. then after that little "saving: do not turn the power off" box goes away and the screen becomes normal again, turn off the power. Turn the DS on again. You will still have your presents (if you picked up any) from your walk. Now you do not have to wait half an hour to go for a walk. Repeat as many times as you want.
