 While Nintendogs may sound retarded, it's more fun than it may sound. The
 object (obviously) about Nintendogs is to raise your dog. You can have up to
 three dogs at one time, but if you go beyond three dogs, your other dogs you
 purchase get deposited in a Dog Hotel for later use. Also, you have to feed
 your dog everyday, give him drink everyday, take him out for walks, brush him,
 bathe him, all the basics. There are also contests you can enter your dog in,
 and you can even link up with another Nintendogs player and check out his dog,
 and play with it and stuff. Also, you teach your dog tricks on Nintendogs.
 Overall, this is not a bad game, but it gets boring quite fast.

 | 2. Version History                                                   |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Version 1.0 / Completed the guide.

 Version 1.1 / Added two new Codes n' Secrets in the section, and another
               question in the FAQs section of the guide.

 Version 1.2 / Added a little something to the FAQ. You will probably never
               notice. This was "supposed" to be the final version, but it
               is not.

 Version 1.3 / This is not the final version, obviously, as I fixed the margins
               of the FAQ, and added some items. Thanks to Paul Almer for
               giving me the info on them. I will hold off on the last versions
               until I truly feel the guide has no need for an update. One more
               thing I added was another question to the FAQs section.

 Version 1.4 / Added a section called "Unlockables", which is section number
               14. Also added a ton of information about the competitions, and
               a good bit of other things, so check it out for yourself!

 Version 1.5 / Added another update. Nothing major, though.

 Version 1.6 / Fixed some info on Code n' Secret #4. That's it.

 Version 1.7 / Added some more information to the Disc Competition In-Depth
               Information part in this FAQ. Also, added another site that has
               permission to use the FAQ. Also, added how much money you win
               from the Master Class and Championship on Agility Trials.
               Nothing else worth mentioning.

 Version 1.8 / Added a FAQ to the FAQs section, also added some information on
               how much money you get from the Competitions on Beginner Class,
               Open Class, and Expert Class. Not all of that information is
               complete yet, though, so please, just give me some time. I'll
               have it.

 Version 1.9 / Added another FAQ to the FAQs section, and also added some info
               regarding the money you win in the competitions. More with the
               competitions to come later. Also, fixed Code n' Secret #5, and
               credited the person who gave me that information. Thank you! :D

 Version 2.0 / Removed Code n' Secret #8 from the Codes n' Secrets section of
               the FAQ, as that was inaccurate information according to someone
               who e-mailed me. Thanks for pointing that out man!

 Version 2.1 / Added something minor to the FAQs section.

 Version 2.2 / Corrected a typo in the Introduction section, and also added a
               small bit of information to the Trainer Points information in
               the Game Basics section. Nothing major in this update.

 Version 2.3 / Finally added the amount of money you win for each place (e.g.
               1st, 2nd, 3rd) in the competitions. Also, added another FAQ to
               the FAQs section of the guide. More to come soon!

 Version 2.4 / Added another FAQ to the FAQs section of the FAQ.

 Version 2.5 / Yet another version. All I did this time was add another Code n'
               Secret to the FAQ. The next version "could" be the final one,
               but I doubt it.

 Version 2.6 / Added some accurate info to the competitions section about how
               much money you win on them.

 Version 2.7 / Corrected something, thanks to LMT!

 Version 2.8 / Added two more things to the Codes n' Secrets section, thanks to
               davgamerx!

 | 3. Dogs                                                              |

 You can get all the dogs from each version (even though this is the Chihuahua
 version) except for the Dalmation and the Jack Russell Terrier. To get those,
 you'll have to find some rare items. The only difference in each version aside
 from that are the version exclusive items, and the fact that you can start off
 with breeds that you can't in the other versions. This section will list all
 of the dogs in this game, including the Dalmation and the Jack Russell
 Terrier. One more thing: You can buy each dog from Kennel (except for the
 Dalmation and the Jack Russell Terrier). NOTE: You can eventually unlock all
 18 dogs in any version by just going through the game.

 Also, each dog has a different personality. For example, if your brother
 bought a Chihuahua and you have one too, that doesn't mean that both of your
 dogs will have the same personality just because they are of the same breed.
 All dogs, no matter what breed they are, are different.

 | 4. Storyline                                                         |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Well, let's see. You simply insert the game into your DS, turn on the "POWER",
 and then you will be prompted to select a dog after knocking on the door of
 Kennel. After acquiring your dog, you are off to raise it as your own, and
 teach it tricks and such. All the basics of raising a dog.

 | 5. Controls                                                          |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 A Button: Confirm selected actions

 B Button: Cancel selected actions

 L Button: Does nothing

 R Button: Does nothing

 Start Button: Does nothing

 Select Button: Does nothing

 Stylus/Touch Screen: This is how the game works. As you can see from what I
                      stated about the controls above, the buttons do hardly
                      anything

 | 6. Game Basics                                                       |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Lightbulb: This lightbulb will appear everytime you do something to your dog
            that will enable to him to be able to begin learning a trick. For
            example, if you were to touch down on his head to make him use
            "Sit", then this lightbulb would appear on the top right corner of
            the screen. When this lightbulb appears, touch it with the stylus,
            and then input your voice command for the trick you are trying to
            learn. It may take several tries. Also, it's a good idea to try and
            use the exact same pronouncation and the same accent each time you
            teach your dog a trick, to avoid confusing your dog (more on this
            in the Tricks section of the guide).

 Bone: If you praise your dog enough, or if you keep playing it him and
       teaching it tricks, then you'll see a gold bone appear. When this
       appears, quickly grab the stylus and move the bone into his mouth, and
       he'll chew it and it'll make it love you more. This gold bone will
       appear more than once.

 Feeding Your Dog: This isn't hard. This is located on the Supplies List icon
                   when you press the red arrow on the top left corner of the
                   screen. Anyway, to feed your dog, simply go to the "Supplies
                   List" icon, and select a Dog Food Can, or Dry Food to feed
                   it and give it to it. You will have to feed your dog
                   everyday to be sure that it doesn't starve. If your dog is
                   not fed for long periods of time, it may feel neglected and
                   run away from home.

 Giving Your Dog Drink: This is also located in the Supplies List area. You
                        give it drink via a Water Bottle, or drink via a Milk
                        Carton. If you don't give your dog drink everyday or
                        often (I would suggest, and I hope you would too, often
                        because your dog gets thirsty a lot faster than it does
                        get hungry) it may feel neglected and run off.

 Walking Your Dog: If you wanna walk your dog, simply go to the "Go Out" icon
                   by pressing the red arrow at the top left of the screen. You
                   can only walk your dog every 30 minutes. When you walk it,
                   you can find other dogs on the road, or find items which can
                   sometimes be rare! Walking your dog builds up its stamina,
                   which means you'll gradually be able to take longer walks.

 Red Arrow: At the top left of the screen, there is a red arrow. The red arrow
            brings up tons of things. I do not feel that I need to explain it.

 Dog Icons: There are three dog icons when you press the red arrow. Two of them
            are mere shadows until you get your other two dogs. The first one,
            which is where your first dog fits in (duh), is where you can find
            information about your dog. By clicking the "?" mark on this icon,
            you can find the Trick List which will show all of the tricks your
            dog has learned. Also, you can view the time of you have spent with
            your dog, as well as other things.

 Supplies List: The Supplies List is found by pressing the red arrow on the top
                left of the screen. The Supplies List menu brings up the screen
                where you can feed your dog, give it a drink, and it also lists
                the books that you what to do on this game such as the Dog
                Training Book. More on this in the Items section of the guide.

 Deleting Tricks: Click the "?" mark on your dog's picture after you press the
                  red arrow. Then, go to Trick List and you can delete tricks
                  if you want.

 Trainer Points: For each minute you spend with your dog, you'll earn one
                 Trainer Point. Trainer Points are used to unlock items and
                 the like. You can also get Trainer Points by walking your dog,
                 but don't do the "Walking Without Waiting" glitch listed in
                 the Codes n' Secrets section of the FAQ, as you won't be able
                 to earn them that way. Finally, if your dog eats trash or
                 loses in a competition, you lose Trainer Points.

 Parks: When you go to walk your dog, there are some parks you can enter in the
        area. Parks help your dog train for Disc Competitons and Agility
        Trials.

 Blue Dot
 Description: After you walk your dog once, you'll notice blue dots when you
              take him/her for a walk again. Blue dots indicate where your dog

              fights!

 There are tons of tricks in this game. There are also two types of tricks:
 Basic, and Advance. I'll list all of them below. NOTE: The game makes you
 teach your dog the command "Sit" after you get it from Kennel. Also, you can
 only teach your dog 3 or 4 tricks per day (24 hours). Not only that, your dog
 can only learn up to 15 tricks. Period. It'll learn even less, depending on
 the difficulty of the trick that you teach it (e.g. if you teach it an
 advanced trick, it won't be able to learn an exact number of 15 tricks).
 Depending on how much you befriend your dog, it'll learn the tricks almost off
 bat. Note that some tricks are harder for certain dogs to do. For example, on
 my first file in this game, it took me about 15-20 tries before I could
 actually learn Roll Over. Whereas on my second file it didn't take me near
 that amount of time, but it took forever to learn jump on the second file, so
 just be patient and know your dog is different from others.

 Finally, try and pronounce your voice command for your dog to learn a trick
 the same way each time, followed by the same accent, to avoid confusing your
 dog. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will probably notice while teaching your dog tricks
 that three red ? marks will appear above its head. When the red ? marks
 appear, it means your dog didn't understand the specified command. If you see
 a blue ? mark, it means it got confused with another command that it already
 knows. Remember this, as it is very important and essential when trying to get
 your dog to learn tricks.

 Basic Tricks:

 Sit
 Description: This makes your dog sit down (obviously). You get this trick when
              you first get your dog, because the game makes you learn it.
 How To Do It: When your dog is standing, move the stylus down on his head to
               make him sit.

 Shake
 Description: Allows your dog to wave at someone (don't ask me why the game
              calls this Shake).
 How To Do It: When your dog is standing, lift up its right paw. Note that you
               can also do another form of this with the dog's left hand. That
               is considered an advanced (mirror) trick.

 Lie Down
 Description: Your dog will lay down when it learns this.
 How To Do It: When your dog is in "Sit" position, touch his head down with the
               stylus and he'll lie down.

 Roll Over
 Description: This makes your dog roll over. Kinda obvious.
 How To Do It: Make your dog sit, then lie down. Then, draw a straight line
               horizontally with the stylus. Your dog will be on its side. Now,
               draw a straight line up with the stylus. and teach him the voice
               command for Roll Over.

 Spin
 Description: Your dog will chase its tail.
 How To Do It: When your dog is standing, grab his tail with the stylus, and
               he'll chase his tail. Keep doing this until you learn it.

 Jump
 Description: Make your dog jump.
 How To Do It: When your dog shakes its butt, tap above its head twice, and
               it'll jump. Keep this up till it learns it.

 Beg
 Description: Your dog will stand up on its two legs, with its other legs in
              the air in a begging position.
 How To Do It: This can be a bit hard to do, as the Dog Training Book states.
               However, if you are good friends with your dog, it shouldn't be
               much of a problem. Anyway, to do it, when your dog is standing
               up, then from the bottom, draw a straight line up with the
               stylus and it should stand on two legs, with the other two in
               the air. Teach it the voice command for Beg when it does this.

 Advanced Tricks:

 IMPORTANT NOTE: Advanced tricks can be extremely hard for your dog to do,
                 depending on its breed. The Shiba breed has the easiest time
                 of performing these "advanced" tricks. When you enounter an
                 advanced trick in the game, you probably won't know what to
                 input for the voice command if you happen to touch the
                 lightbulb (the lightbulb disappears really fast). Try and
                 think a name for the move your dog does, so that the next time
                 it does it, you will be able to teach it the ability without
                 you getting excited and messing it up. Advanced commands also
                 require certain abilities. For example, the Flip technique,
                 which I am going to list below, requires Roll Over and Jump.

 Flip
 Description: Your dog will perform a huge backflip.
 Required Commands: Roll Over, Jump
 How To Do It: Make your dog lie on its back (like you did to learn Roll Over).
               Then, don't pet it, but instead make it jump. Also, it helps if
               your dog is fed, and given water. Don't pet your dog when it is
               on its back, or it'll think you mean to tell him that the trick
               is no more. Keep trying, as this takes a lot of patience.

 Backflip
 Description: Your dog will perform a backflip.
 Required Commands: Sit, Jump
 How To Do It: Make your dog sit, then immediately make it jump. Keep doing it,
               because it could take a while, and be sure to press the
               lightbulb immediately.

 Handstand
 Description: Your dog will perform a handstand.
 Required Commands: Lie Down, Beg
 How To Do It: Make your dog lie down. When it is laying down, immediately make
               it use the command "Beg". There is another way to do it. Here's
               how: When your dog is shaking its butt, quickly draw a straight
               line from down to up and sometimes your dog will do a handstand!

 Spin Around
 Description: While standing, your dog will spin around.
 Required Commands: Spin, Beg
 How To Do It: Make your dog use "Beg", then "Spin". Remember not to pet your
               dog while it is doing this, or it'll mess up.

 Dance
 Description: Your dog will do a dance.
 Required Commands: Beg
 How To Do It: Take one of your dog's paws, and help it up. Your dog should now
               be on his hind paws, and be steady as well. Finally, let go of
               its paw and it'll start dancing.

 Hop
 Description: Your dog will hop. Obviously.
 Required Commands: Dance, Jump
 How To Do It: Make your dog dance, then make it jump immediately to perform
               this command. Keep it up until your dog learns it.

 A New Kind of Jump
 Description: Your dog will jump even higher than with the normal Jump command.
 Required Commands: N/A
 How To Do It: This depends on the mood your dog is in. First off, do the same
               exact thing you did for Jump. If your lucky, your dog will jump
               extremely high. Up to your stylus above his head! WOW!

 Breakdance
 Description: Your dog will spin on its back.
 Required Commands: Roll Over, Spin
 How To Do It: Make your dog roll on its back, then immediately make it do
               Spin. Keep doing this until your dog learns Breakdance.

 | 9. Bathing                                                           |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 I don't know why I included a section for this, but I did. Since we have one,
 I may as well explain "some" information about it. You can bathe your dog at
 any time. The game restricts you from walking your dog until every 30 minutes,
 but you can bathe your dog anytime. Always remember to bathe your dog until
 his status appears "Beautiful" on the screen where it shows you how much time
 you've spent with your dog and all. When your dog is beautiful, it'll help to
 win contests. A LOT. Your dog can go through these stages of cleanliness:

 Beautiful
 Description: This is obtained when you give your dog tons of bath. Even the
              status "Clean" cannot compare to this.
 Message To Know You're At This Status: "<insert name here> is feeling very
                                          good now!"

 Clean
 Description: Your dog is clean, but not beautiful. Easily obtained.
 Message To Know You're At This Status: "<insert name here> is clean!"

 Normal
 Description: Your dog is neither clean nor dirty.
 Message To Know You're At This Status: "<insert name here> is somewhat clean
                                          now."

 Dirty
 Description: Your dog is dirty.
 Message To Know You're At This Status: "<insert name here> is dirty."
 Note: This message may be wrong, because I've never actually got to see what
       it says on this state, because I washed my dog more than once in one
       shampoo use.

 Filthy
 Description: Your dog is filthy
 Message To Know You're At This Status: "<insert name here> is filthy."
 Note: This message may be wrong, because I've never actually got to see what
       it says on this state, because I washed my dog more than once in one
       shampoo use.

 Also, a final note. You need to use the Wire Brush for long-haired dogs, and
 the Rubber Brush for short-haired dogs. ALWAYS brush your dog after giving it
 a bath. You can also bathe your dog till it becomes Beautiful, even if it is
 at Filthy, in just one shampoo use. This conserves money and time.

 | 10. Bark Mode                                                        |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 In Bark Mode you can link up with another wireless partner who is currently
 playing Nintendogs. Even if the wireless user has another version aside from
 Chihuahua & Friends, you can still link up with him/her. In Bark Mode, even
 after the wireless partner has left, you can pet the other person's dog to see
 how it reacts. Also, you can trade dogs with another wireless partner.
 Finally, you can send the other player's dog a present from your own
 inventory. In Bark Mode you can also send the other player a 5 second voice
 message from your "White Record" (more on that in the Items section). Other
 than that, Bark Mode is useless.

 | 11. Contests                                                         |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 There are three types of contests (competitions and trials) that you can enter
 in Nintendogs. In all three versions to be exact. I will list all the
 information needed in this section below. Also, in the Obedience Trials,
 you'll have to do what you are prompted to do on the screen. For example, on
 an Obedience Trial, you will sometimes be prompted to hold Sit for 15 seconds.
 Do what the screen tells you. Also, on other competitions (Disc Competition
 and Agility Trial), you won't be prompted to do any form of commands. Also,
 at the end of the Obedience Trial, you will have to do a Free Performance
 which means you can make your dog do whatever tricks you want without being
 commanded to do what the game wants you to do (duh). Other than that, not much
 else to list. IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure you feed, give water to, and bathe
 your dog before entering an Agility Trial, a Disc Competition, or an Obedience
 Trial, as it'll help you win a whole lot.

 IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all of the information about the amount of money you win
                 may be 100% accurate, but I tried to make it accurate, but I
                 have not played this game in forever. Also, I got the info
                 about if you make first place in the competitions how much
                 money you get, from the message boards on GameFAQs, so credit
                 goes to NintendogBeast for giving me that information. Thanks!
                 Note that the second and third place prize information was
                 written of what I "think" may the correct answer. Please
                 e-mail me and correct me if I'm wrong in ANY of the info
                 listed below. Thank you. Also note that all credit goes to
                 Nathan Arboleda and a couple other people for sending me info
                 about how much money you win on the competitions! Thanks!
                 Note also that this section is almost complete (after the
                 correct amount of money is written down, it'll be complete).


 Agility Trial
 Description: Test your dog's agility here, while trying to get through the
              obstacle course.

 Disc Competition
 Description: Try and get your dog to win several competitions revolving around
              the frisby-type items.

 Obedience Trial
 Description: The most fun of the competitions in my opinion. Make your dog
              perform the specified commands given to you by the game. Also, be
              sure to bathe/brush your dog before attempting one of these.

 Disc Competition In-Depth Information:


 Well, first off, your dog has to know how to catch the discs very easily. It
 also has to be able to return it to you without a fight, if you are to win the
 bigger contests, such as the Expert Class. Also, you start off in the green
 zone in a Disc Competition. The zones represent colors. From the green zone,
 throw the disc as far as you can and if your dog catches it, you'll receive
 points! Depending on which color it catches it on, you'll get greater or
 lesser points. Here are the points each color gives you:


 Blue Zone
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: 10
 Regular Catch Points Earned: 9

 Red
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: 8
 Regular Catch Points Earned: 7

 Orange
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: 6
 Regular Catch Points Earned: 5

 Yellow
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: 4
 Regular Catch Points Earned: 3

 Light Green
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: 2
 Regular Catch Points Earned: 1

 Green
 Jumping Catch Points Earned: N/A
 Regular Catch Points Earned: N/A


 Also note that in a Disc Competition you have only 1 minute to get as many
 points as possible, and score the win. Be very careful in the latter contests,
 and make sure your dog is well trained and disciplined. Take him/her to the
 park for training every now and then. The second your dog has the disc, if it
 does not come back to you immediately or shortly after, tap the touch screen
 to call him. If your dog is not well trained and does not respond to you when
 you call him, this can easily cause you to lose even the simplest of
 competitions.


 Beginner Class
 Description: As always, the Beginner Class is the easy class. Not much of a
              problem, here.
 Money For Winning: 1st Place: $100, 2nd Place: $50, 3rd Place: $30

 Money For Winning: 1st Place: $200, 2nd Place: $100, 3rd Place: $50

              dog is well-trained, and also willing to obey you. It also must
              be able to jump pretty high and catch the disc a good bit to win.
 Money For Winning: 1st Place: $300, 2nd Place: $150, 3rd Place: $100

 Master Class
 Description: A very difficult competition to get through. Your dog must be
              extremely well-trained, and it must also obey anything you tell
              it. Must be able to catch the disc pretty good, too. Must be a
              significantly high jumper, as well.
 Money For Winning: 1st Place: $400, 2nd Place: $300, 3rd Place: $200

 Championship Class
 Description: The hardest of the competitions, as you already know. This is the
              absolute ultimate test for your dog. Your dog must be a master
              jumper, and a master at catching the disc. You must not fail in
              this competition! Your dog must be extremely obedient, as well as

 | 12. Walking                                                          |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Click "Go Out" via the red arrow at the top left of the screen when you are at
 home with your dog to walk it. You can walk as many dogs as you like, but only
 one by one. Each time you walk, your dog gets more stamina. At the bottom left
 of the screen, there is a yellow bar which indicates how much stamina your dog
 has left. You will have to draw a route from your house leading back to your
 house with the stylus and that is where your dog will walk. However, you must
 be sure to draw the line to the point where your dog doesn't run out of
 stamina. When walking, you will also find items and other dogs on the park.
 You can sometimes even find rare items (see the Items section for more on
 that). You can only walk your dog once every 30 minutes, so keep that in mind
 if you are wondering why the game won't let you walk your dog.

 | 13. Items                                                            |

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Q: Are version exclusives available on every version?

 A: If it is a version exclusive, what do you think? Obviously not.

 Q: If you don't feed your dog or give it water, will it eventually die?

 A: No, but if you fail to feed it or give it water, then it'll eventually run
    away from home because it feels neglected. Make sure that this does not
    happen.

 Q: HELP! My dog is nowhere in my house! What do I do?!

 A: It's because you failed to feed it and give it water everyday like you're
    supposed to. Wouldn't a real dog run away from home if you failed to feed
    it or give it water? I sincerely think so.

 Q: My dog eats the garbage sometimes during walks? How do I get him to stop?

 A: Drag him away using the stylus. I always pull up on the leash and move it
    up, and right until he ignores the garbage.

 Q: My dog won't obey my commands. Why is that?

 A: It's probably because you don't spend enough time with your dog. For
    example, if you don't play the game but 5 minutes a day, your dog will hate
    you pretty fast. I know I would be mad at someone who only said "hi" to me
    all day, and then left me alone to fend for myself. Try and spend some more
    time with your dog (30 minutes to an hour a day with your dog) and give it
    some baths and take it for walks and it'll like you in no time.

 Q: My dog likes me, but won't do the tricks I want it to do. Why?

 A: Because your dog is probably tired of doing tricks.

 Q: It won't let me walk my dog or carry it to a contest. Why?

 A: It's because you just walked your dog. You can only walk your dog once
    every 30 minutes. You can also only enter three competitions per day.
    However, there IS a trick to entering unlimited contests, so see the Codes
    n' Secrets section of this guide for more information.

 Q: My dog keeps fighting with other dogs in the park? Is this a sign of my dog
    not being friendly?

 A: While I really am not positive about the friendly part, I DO know that if a
    real life dog fights almost everyone he sees, wouldn't you think he was
    unfriendly? I sure would. Just ignore that, it doesn't matter if your dog
    doesn't like other dogs, it doesn't effect you and your dog's relationship.

 Q: If you know you will not have time or be around for a few days are you able
    to "pause" the game so your dogs won't run away?

 A: Nope, unfortunately. Nintendo made it real in that sort of fashion.

 Q: Is there a possibilty to spoil the dog?

 A: Not that I know of. >_>

 Q: Will my dog give birth or turn into a big dog (depending on breed) e.g.
    Golden Retriever?

 A: Unless you obtain a dog in Bark Mode, or unless you buy one, you can't get
    another one. They will not give birth. This would have been cool, though.

 Q: How do you make easy money?

 A: The only way I know is to get about 4-5 dogs, then enter them each in a
    competition after they are well trained and obedient, and make sure they
    win Beginner all the way to Championship.

 Q: Why won't my dog obey me? It's well-trained and should listen to me! Help!

 A: Well, even a well-behaved dog is capable of disobedience. While it is
    confusing as to why the dogs do this, and not even I know that answer, you
    will just have to put up with that disobedience and overcome it. Keep
    training your dog, and make sure you don't neglect to feed it, give it
    water, walk it, bathe it, and brush it, as those are essential things. If
    you still have trouble with your dog's obedience even after all this is
    done, play more often if you have not been playing. If that doesn't work,
    you look to be out of luck, or you have a really stubborn dog. Remember,
    every dog's personality is different, so keep that in mind. One more note,
    which was given to me by Demon of Demise (I can't give out his e-mail): If
    your dog still won't obey you, try change the command (e.g. try and say
    wave your hand if you are trying to do Shake and he won't learn it), as
    sometimes your dog can become confused with that command, and mistake it
    for another.

 Q: Is there any other way to obtain items other than from a walk?

 A: I get e-mails regarding things like how do I find this item and that item?
    Well, the only real answer I can give is that you can only find items
    during a walk. There is no other way, aside from the Pet Supply Store, and
    they don't sell anything rare anyway.

 Q: Why can't I get the Pull Rope item? I have enough Trainer Points. Help!

 A: Take any dog on a walk and take it to the discount shop at the bottom of
    the map. The Pull Rope will be in there, but bewere it will change every
    time you revisit the place, so it turns to Dog Biscuits and the one after
    that is Jerky. IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm thinking this is how you obtain some
    other items (not all) when you have enough Trainer Points, but I'm not
    entirely certain; correct me if I'm wrong.

 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 In this section I will list all of the codes and secrets in this game, and how
 to do them.


 Enter Unlimited Competitions
 ----------------------------

 Code n' Secret #1
 How To Do It: You would normally be restricted to only being able to do three
               competitions a day, whether it be an Obedience Trial, an Agility
               Trial, or a Disc Competition. Three is what you are restricted
               to. Anyway, to enter unlimited competitions, save your game
               before the contest. That way, if you fail, you can just turn off
               the "POWER" and then enter the competition again.


 Tons Of Presents In One Day
 ---------------------------

 Code n' Secret #2
 How To Do It: Take your dog on a walk and go over as many "?" boxes as you
               can. Then go to the park and draw your path back home, so after
               you go over all the "?" boxes (and get your gifts), you go to
               the park. At the park, put a new accessory on your dog. After it
               has saved turn off your DS, but you'll notice that when you turn
               on your DS you will have all your presents you got. And, you can
               take your dog on a walk again and you dont have to wait 25
               minutes.

 Thanks to prottushhossain for this code and secret.


 Starting A New Game (Erasing Old Data)
 --------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #3
 How To Do It: Before the "Nintendo" screen appears when you load the game,
               hold A, B, X, Y, L and R. The file will erase and you can now
               start a new game.


 Get A Lot Of Trainer Points
 ---------------------------

 Code n' Secret #4
 How To Do It: Alright, this is one of the cheapest things you can do in this
               game, but it's well worth it. To start off, touch your dog with
               your brush. Leave your DS on overnight, but make sure that it is
               charging, otherwise the power will go out eventually. Also, do
               not put the DS in sleep mode, as it won't work this way. NOTE:
               You can actually keep the game on this screen indefinately as
               long as you don't touch the screen or any buttons once you have
               selected which dog to brush. As long as you stay on this screen
               the time spent here will count as touch time, you don't need to
               make physical contact with the screen for this. Using this
               technique I was able to stay on the brush screen overnight & for
               most of the nexy day until I exited from the screen myself.

 Thanks to [email protected], as he gave me the bit of info after "NOTE" on
 the trick above.


 Walking Without Waiting
 -----------------------

 Code n' Secret #5
 How To Do It: Go for a walk and cover as many question marks as you can. Then
               go to the park, change your accessory then turn off the Ds. When
               you turn it on again you can go for another walk without having
               to wait half an hour.

 Thanks to Cara Evans for this bit of information.


 Getting The Two Secret Breeds
 -----------------------------

 Code n' Secret #6
 How To Do It: To get the two secret breeds in the game, the Jack Russell
               Terrier and the Dalmation, walk until you find these two rare
               items: For the Dalmation, the Fireman's Hat. For the Jack
               Russell Terrier, a Jack Russell Book. The breeds are unlocked
               the same way in every version of the game.


 Never Lose Any Contest
 ----------------------

 Code n' Secret #7
 How To Do It: Let's say you have 6.8 points, and the requirement for the win
               is 8.5, turn off your DS before the judges judge you. The game
               has an auto save feature so before the judging comes, it'll
               save. This is especially useful on the Master Class and the
               Championship on the competitions.


 Another Method To Obtaining Presents
 ------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #8
 How To Do It: If you are good to your dog, and if it isn't in your house, do
               not be alarmed, because it didn't run away; it went out to get
               you a present. This means your dog likes you a heck of a lot.
               Now if you aren't good to it and it runs away, you are in
               trouble.

 Thanks to Michelle Jordan for giving me this bit of information.


 Increased Chance Of Finding Rare Items
 --------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #9
 How To Do It: If you have the Lucky Collar on your dog, then when you go on a
               walk, you will have a better chance of finding rare items not
               only when a present passes by, but you will have a better chance
               of finding them on "?" blocks, too!

 Thanks to davgamerx for the above Code n' Secret.


 Easier Way To Get The Dalmation And The Jack Russel Terrier
 -----------------------------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #10
 How To Do It: If somebody else that you can communicate wirelessly with has a
               Dalmation or a Jack Russel Terrier, communicate wirelessly with
               them via Bark Mode. Then, have that person trade you the
               Fireman's Hat or a Jack Russel Book (or have that person trade
               both if he/she has both items). After trading, you'll have those
               two dogs!

 Thanks to davgamerx for the above Code n' Secret.

               salvation. Thanks, brother Jesus! :) Thanks to God the Father of
               lights for sending Jesus down to die on calvary on the cross
               2005 years ago for our sins that we might be forgiven. Also
               thank Him for Jesus's death because the Holy Spirit was
               promised, and by Jesus's death and resurrection, was given to
               us, that when we get saved, the Holy Spirit lives inside of us.
