You can not get a free dog you need trainer points.You can neither get free money without selling or winning anything so don't be buying any cheat code books that say any nintendogs or nintendogs + cats. Because it does not have a free money cheat or free dog cheat in it like cheat code explosion or something like that.
In Nintendogs 3DS there are a few ways to earn money. Obviously selling stuff and winning competitions. But if you by chance find a piggy bank, smash it. Unlike in Nintendogs it doesn't just break and give nothing. It gives you money. I got two of thirty and one of 15. If this helped anyone, please give reviews!!!! Thank you XOXOXO
You all probably know this already, but this is for those who don't! Basically, do not buy your treats from the store. Walk your puppy on the pedometer, and if you don't want to walk around then just close the lid and sit and shake the Nintendo 3DS gently, and be careful not to accidently throw it across the room! For every 10 steps you take, you get a presant. From what I've found, from 10 to 1000 steps gets you treats, cat or dog. So don't waste money buying treats, when you can get them for free with a little wrist shaking! Anymore than 1000 steps I've found gets you items, just bits of plastic and the occasional leather shoe. I've never got more than 1500 because I'm a bit impatient, but hey i'll get there! As soon as you open the Nintendo it will tell you how many steps you took whilst the lid was closed. There should be a presant there, and your pup will pick it up and give it to you, like a normal gift. Then the step counter will go back to zero and you have the option to quit or begin again. Be careful if you want to get a high number of steps, because I got 1498 steps and opened it, and I was aiming for 1500+, and believe me, that's a pain in the butt! But anyway, hope I helped you out, I'm pretty new to this game and just thought I would help out the community with something I didn't know before
If you enter a competition you might find that one of your competitors is a "comptetition neighbor", a dog that you won't find on a walk, but you will find in a competition. They are owned by the people who work/own the shops(both the boutiques and the regular shops)but I don't think one is owned by Drew, the guy who works at the pet hotel. And one warning: Truffles is hard to beat in lure coursing. And here's some stuff that's to your advantage: Bella and Milo have tendencies to chew on the lure, but only one of them will chew it if they're both in the competition.
After I got past 500 Trainer Points, I was walking through downtown when I saw a sign on the left of a person walking a dog. When I went up to it, it said that it was called the 'Secret Path'. Upon entering, I saw that it was full of those traffic cone slaloms. If you weave through them w/o touching them, you get a present!
