If you want to be succesful in nintendogs follow these steps.....
.1)Keep saying your pets name even after your done with naming it, it will help the dog be more obiedient and loyal.
.2)Do not hit your dog,that gets it mad, and as your game gets older you will be sorry that you did that.
.3)*for users with MARIO KART!!!!* If you have a mario cart be extra carfull not to crash into your pets...again you wouldn't want to make him and/or her mad!
.1) Try your hardest to give your pup 2 walks a day!!!(*MORE IF POSSIBLE*) I know nintendogs says only one walk but this will benefit your wealth, your dog, and trainer points.
.2) When your dog is able try taking him to a park with dogs in it (*will have dog icon on the park icon if there is*) this will help him and/or her make friends, social skills, and you will find it will even be friendly to you.
.3) THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!! DO NOT MAKE YOUR DOG RUN!!! ONLY JERK ITS LEASH WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO GET HIM and/or HER OUT OF THE GARBAGE!!!
.1) I suggest you train your dog for competitions in this order ***AGILITY AND OBIEDIENCE THEN DISC COMPETITIONS***
.2) This is a little trick to help your rep and wealth on nintendogs...BEFORE YOU GO TO A COMPETITOPM SAVE YOUR GAME!!! If you get a bad score fault ect. TUREN OFF THE SYSTEM AND TRY AGAIN!!! this will give you better trophies more money and more
