Guest answered:

my Lil sister was pushing all these buttons and a thing popped up saying i had to rename my dog so yes it is possible to rename a dog that has already a name that u want to change.

Guest answered:

No you can't change the name I soooooooo wish you could. I have a shiba inu named vanilla, and I like the name, but I wanna make it something more unique that I came up with, and I want to change it to "jynxee" (cool unique name by me huh?) but I can't and I really don't want to delete her because ahe can do all the advanced tricks and has full stamina and all that stuff, and it took me ages to make her the dog she is now. But sadly, you can't change the name... Though it would be SOOOOOO AWESOME IF YOU COULD!!!

Aww, I also have a black and tan shiba inu named Shadow, I was thinking, and I decided I wanted to name her magic, sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I really want her to have a more unique name too........................

Guest answered:

One time my friend pressed random buttons rapidly, and it asked me do you want to rename my pet( something like that), SO YES!

Guest answered:

I thibk you can. Today my baby sister was playing my game and when I got it back my dogs name was changed from taco to 22345. I have no idea how she did it. Plus I don't think she knows how to buy a new dog so I'm a bit at a loss myself. (By the way my sister is only five)

Guest answered:

There is a code that allows you to change the gender of your dog

Guest answered:

If the dog forgets his name you can rename it and I think this only happens early on or can't hear you properly

Wrong! Thalia and hardly are BOYS TOO I was surprised because this whole time I thought they were girls so I want to change there name but I can :(
