Nintendogs

Is Outer Space worth getting?

Games Guru: It’s not “outer space,” it is the outer space interior decorator. I was not so impressed.

Are there any codes (like letter codes)?

Games Guru: Not that I have heard of—but have you tried dragging the light bulb that appears over your dog’s head down to your dog? He’ll eat it. (Definitely do not try this with real dogs at home.)

    Is there a cheat to get the jack Russel book I already know you have to go on walks and I have chiwawa and friends and I have lab and friends and I have dalmation and friends and dauchund and friends which would be the best one to use getting it I had the chiwawa on longest but I have 8 dogs on the lab one and I am much better with the lab then all of my other nintendog games please help

  4. how do i get a Bowser cart?! please reply!

  5. This might help you guys to get the fireman’s hat. When you hear a siren go on a walk right away and walk past all “?” boxes and then one of then will be the hat. Once you get the hat you most likely get the dalmation.

  6. if you hear a rumor of a helicopter that shoots dog treats dont belive it i bought both helicopters and neither shoot dog bones

  7. How do you unlock chiwawas???

    I have an awesome Shnauzer named Harry (which I dress up with scholar glasses) who gets me tons of money at agility contests. I also have 2 labs, Muray and Jordan, and a retreiver, Nate, who get me tons of money. I am saving up for the desk and beach homes. Are they worth all the trouble?

    Here`s a trick. Brush your dog but keep the brush in the center. Don`t move it! Give it a bath.Give it a Then turn your DS off. Put your DS in the charger.Wait a couple hours. This will get you lots of trainer points. So you can get about 950 points in 8 hours.

    To lab freak I tried pressing A,B,X,Y,L,R,start,select when I went past the beach like10 times.But it didn’t work.

  26. Does anyone need any help.

    To get a Dalmation you need the Fireman hat.
    To get a Jack Russel find the Jack Russel book.
    And to get certain dogs you need more trainer points

    Okay, it is very hard to get the Fireman’s hat and Jack Russel book. I think wearing the Lucky collar helps.
    It’s Chihuahua. I’m sorry but I kept seeing people spell it chiuaua.

  35. I CAN NOT find the jack russell book or fireman’s hat i have all breeds unlocked other than those. I have lab and friends. Also I heard you can go to the beach.

    1. go on a walk past the beach
    2. when by the beach press A,B,X,Y,L,R, start, select
    3. a question box pops up “looks like (dogs name) wants to go for a swim hit yes and awesome items await.
    (it may not work but sometimes it does it worked for my friend but not me:(

  36. I need to find out what action replay is and how u enter it in Dalmation

  37. In reply to klr21’s comment,
    To get a dalmatian, you must first hear a fire truck while on a walk. Then the dalmatian will appear in you kennel.
    I hope this helps!
