|Pretend, (practically) perfect puppies come to life in this triple-release line of pet simulators from Nintendo. In Nintendogs, players adopt, raise, and train an impressively intelligent virtual dog, of a breed they choose. In addition to Labrador retrievers, this version of the game offers Miniature Schnauzers, Toy Poodles, Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Miniature Pinschers, and Shiba Inus. The dogs can be taught a number of tricks, and even entered into virtual dog shows to earn cash for useful items.|
The most distinguishing elements of the DS interface allow players to interact with their pets. The touch screen is used to for physical interaction. Rub the puppy's belly and he might kick his leg; poke his foot and he'll pull it back in surprise. The stylus is also used to manipulate in-game items, including the dog's leash and variety of toys. Players must communicate with their dogs by voice, as well, and a new puppy may need to hear the name he's given (spoken into the DS microphone) numerous times before he learns to respond properly.
In addition to the regular attention he'll expect from his owner, the puppy will appreciate a chance to interact with other computer-generated canines. Nearby Nintendogs players can meet in virtual community parks, supported by the DS' wireless communication capabilities, where their dogs can romp and frolic together. Each of the three versions of Nintendogs is distinguished by a title species (the other two are Miniature Dachshund and Chihuahua), but all editions of the game are designed to interact with one another, regardless of breed.

I love this game because, 1) you get to adopt a cute furry friend, 2) you get to play, walk, feed, bathe and much more with your puppy, 3) It stays a puppy forever! 4) If you have a friend with a nintendo ds and any nintendogs game (doesn't have to be Lab and friends) you can do bark mode and play with your friend's puppy!!!
A disappointment is that your dog can't grow up and have puppies. You can buy a game called Dogz 5 or Catz 5 for your computer and you can have dogs that will have puppies.
Each version of Nintendogs comes with six breeds to choose from, and you can unlock additional breeds by playing with other owners through wireless gameplay; collect and play with a huge array of items such as tennis balls, flying discs and even clothing accessories; compete in obedience and agility trials to earn cash to buy even more dogs; interact wirelessly with friends' Nintendogs using the innovative Bark Mode.

Reccommend to anyone with a Nintendo Ds or a Nintendo Ds!
Look at my other reviews!!!!
I bought my Nephew that I am rasing a Nintendo Ds for his 9th birthday, and this is one of the games he wanted with it because of a game that I got my daughter that is like this except for it is the Dachshund & Friends, but anyway I am glad I got it for him due to the fact that we can't have animals because I am an eBay seller, and a lot of buyers want smoke & pet free items but anyway back to the game this games is about dogs you actually have to play with them, give them baths, feed them, teach them tricks, enter them into contest to win money to buy things with and even give them names which you have to teach them their names it also has few different types of dogs you can pick from. What I think is really great is the fact that these dogs on this game have to be taught, and they respond to the childs voice and pretty much no one elses. It is so cute watching your child on the game trying to teach their dog their names, and seeing them tell the game say sit, and things like that, When I first saw my kids with it, it kind looked silly, and made me, and other family members laughed but I really think this is a great game because my nephew has to get on the game everyday to at least feed dogs he, and my daughter really takes their games to heart. I feel it also can teaches a child some responsibility of owning a pet. This game was money well spent, and I will have to give it 5 S*T*A*R*S* out of 5.
I guess if you live somewhere you can't have a Dog and really want one this is the game for you.
First, you go to the Pound and Pick out the puppy you want. Then you go home and begin training the puppy. You Pick a name and then say the name SEVERAL times into the built-in Mic. in order to get the Puppy to learn its name. You can also teach your new Puppy numerous tricks. Sit, Roll-Over, Spin, Lie Down, Stay, etc.. All of the commands are spoken by the player and recognized by the DS.
You can also enter your Puppy into Obedience, Agility and Flying Disk Catching Contests. You can win money in these events and buy things from the store. Such as, Food, Water, Toys, Shampoo, Brushes, Toys, etc.....
You can also take your Puppy for a walk and Link-up with other Players via the wireless connection so your puppies can play together.
The Graphics are Excellent. The sound could be a bit louder(as usual).
All in All a Good Game. I would rate it a 7.5 out of 10 Stars.
Oh! By The Way my 7 year old Daughter thinks is a GREAT game!
I decided to buy this game for my daughter because she wanted to try it. She saw a lot of other Nintendo DS users playing this game. When I asked her for her comments about this game, she said:
This game is awesome! I love how they included all the colors of the Labs, such as brown, black, and yellow. I love how they have presents for the dogs. I like the fact that I can exchange these presents when I am in bark mode. I enjoy talking to the dogs and I like how they will only recognize my voice. I love the fact that each dog has its own personality.
I dislike that there are different presents for different versions of this game. For example, the Dachshund and Friends game gives you the Mario cart but it is not available on this game.
Overall, I would highly recommend this game to any animal lover or any DS lover!
My sons keep asking for this game and I purchased it for him. I wouldn't let them get a real dog so they wanted the game. The game has them feed the dogs keep them clean by giving them a bath and also they can enter them into compititions. They also have to earn money to purchase their dog food and supplies for their dogs. They have a sense of responsibility of having to take care of something. They are now getting a real dog on Monday and are so excited even more now than before they had the game. There was nothing to dislike about the product. All positive to say about it.
