Gameplay
In Nintendogs Dachshund & Friends owners purchase one of the six breeds available at the beginning of Nintendogs, then start spending time with their pups. They throw flying discs and balls to improve the pup’s agility, bathe it when it gets dirty and repeat voice commands to train the dog to do tricks. If owners train it well enough, they will excel in obedience and agility trials and disc competitions, which will earn money that they can use to buy other supplies and puppy breeds. When owners earn enough cash, they can buy even more puppies to live with their original pup.

Key Game Features

  • Visit the kennel and select a puppy from some of the most popular breeds, including Labs, Chihuahuas, dachshunds and more, then care for and train the puppy using the touch screen and microphone.
  • Pet the pup, acquire and play with more than 100 items like tennis balls, flying discs and even clothing accessories. Owners teach their dogs to do tricks by creating their own personalized voice commands.
  • Owners who train their pups well can compete in obedience and agility trials. They win these competitions to earn cash, which they can use to buy supplies and even more dogs to keep their first puppy company.
  • Owners can set the DS to Bark Mode, then take it with them as they head out into the real world. The DS will bark to let them know when another Nintendogs owner is in range and ready to meet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mom's take...Just give in and Buy it already! September 19, 2005
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son actually had a "Dogz" and "Catz" game similar to this for our computer some years ago. Very fun...very cute but wow, how far the technology has come in a few short years! First of all, the images are amazing and very crisp and clear. Secondly, he'll play it for hours on end (if I let him) and really seems to be doing something constructive rather than just shooting things and running in circles finding coins. The voice recognition is really genius, he's the only one that can train the dog he's chosen, even if his friends decide they'd like to try the game. It also teaches responsibility before the fact if you are thinking of getting a pet. No...it's not "real life" but it's the coolest virtual thing I've seen in a long time! It's not a bad price as games go, and it really will keep the kids occupied for a long time. I just think it's really neat and hey, it's not annoying like a Furby.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is so much fun and adorable! June 28, 2005
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We are americans living in japan and currently have the japanese dachsund version (there are 3 different versions in japan). Each version allows you to own over 4 different dogs.

After figuring out how to use it (we don't read japanese) my daughter spent a lot of time teaching her dog his name and how to do tricks. The game incorporates a voice recognition function so the dog only responds to it's owner. The dogs act like real pets, it took my daughter a whole day to teach the dog it's name (like a real puppy) so it would respond to her. It gave her a taste of what it's like to own a real dog. She has to feed it and clean it's mess or is fined "money". There is not one problem my daughter has had with this game and it can be reset if you want to start over. This is such an awesome interactive game, the graphics are outstanding and the puppies are sooooo cute! You can also detect other DS puppies if you're walking around town with your DS on. The puppies start barking to each other then you can link up and let them play together....Well worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Responsibility Builder for All Ages October 1, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've always dreamed about having your own dog, be sure to give Nintendogs a try for your Nintendo DS. The game helps to teach you the skills necessary to care for a pet!

There are three different types of Nintendog games out there - Chihuahua, Dachshund, and Labrador Retriever. Each game has a different group of dog breeds available in it. If you get all 3 games you get the full collection of dog types - but there are plenty enough to choose from with just one game.

You start out by choosing a dog and naming it. The simple interactions come first of course - tossing a tennis ball, petting the dog, teaching it to sit. Your pet learns to respond to your voice commands, and develops a personality depending on how you interact with it. You take your pet for walks, feed it, give it water, and most of all provide it with love and affection.

As you progress with your pet, you can teach it more tricks, play frisbee with it and enter it in a variety of competitions. You can earn money, buy new treats for your pup, and even customize the home you live in. If you have other Nintendo DS owners in your area, you can even share pet time together and exchange information!

I've played many pet games before this one - Catz, Dogz, Creatures, NeoPets, you name it. It's impressive how far the graphics have come in these games. The Nintendog pet is very emotive - from the hopeful eyes to the wagging tail, you really get a sense that this is a live creature anxious for affection. You can pet the pup, nuzzle it under the chin, tickle its belly. When you throw the ball or toss the frisbee, it really reacts the way you would think it should.

It's delightful to see a game that doesn't involve violence or destruction. Sure, if you neglect your pet it will get upset.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nintendogs October 24, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember when I first saw this game. I was bored and then my friend pulled out nintendogs and asked me if I'd like to try it. I had so much fun with it I wanted to get it right away, of course, if your like me, and spend your allowance on gum, that's just not gonna happen. So I had to wait for Christmas, figures, but the wait was deffinately worth it! Most people say things like " if you can't have a dog this game if right for you!" or "this game can get boring after a while..." but that's not true! I have a dog, so I should know... Anyway, first you have to pick which version is right for you, I picked Dachsund and friends because I had a Goldend Retriever, and I always thought those "weiner dogs" were so cute. And I got a dog that was simaler to my actual dog and named it Millie, the name of my actual dog. That way I could say that I was carrying my dog in my pocket all day. Anyway, here are the things that make nintendotgs so sweet:

*Bring it anywhere

*Many dogs to choose from

*Use bark mode to meet and greet other nintendotgs owners

*So realistic

*No two dogs are the same

*Respond to your voice

*Tons of things to do

*Really care your dog, feed, give it water, and pick up (eww) poo

*Teach it tricks

*Many Easter Eggs (AKA: secrets)

*Take your dogs on walks

*Enter competitions to make moola

*Too many dogs, drop some of at the Doggy Hotel

*Upgrade your apartment

*Many,many,many toys.

*Any questions, ask me!
