Select from multiple breeds, ranging from Labradors to Chihuahuas, then care for and train the puppy using the touch screen and microphone.
Play nice! Interact wirelessly with your friends' Nintendogs. How will you and your friends puppies get along?
Pet your puppy, go for a walk around the neighbourhood, acquire and play with more than 100 items like flying discs and outfits or teach the dog to do tricks by creating voice commands.
If you train your puppy well enough, you can compete in dog shows and agility contests - win to unlock other items and puppy breeds to keep yours company.
In Nintendogs, you can teach your puppy's new tricks! Just speak into the built-in microphone and they'll respond to the voice commands you've taught them. Not only that, but you can even play Nintendogs over the DS's wireless connection!
Nintendogs' great graphics and touch-screen interactivity take the virtual pet genre to an entirely new level. Selecting "Scratch" from an options menu is one thing, but actually taking your finger and rubbing the touch screen to scratch your puppy's stomach is quite another.
Nintendogs is available in four different versions. Each version contains a different selection of 6 dog breeds. To unlock all breeds on a single version, players can enter bark mode with other players. When they meet a dog breed they do not have, it will then become available to buy from the Kennel.
