Linking to unlock new breeds
When linking copies of Nintendogs to unlock new breeds, remember two things. You can only link with another Nintendo DS system once (and unlock a new breed). The breed unlocked corresponds with your partner's current pet, and it must be a breed that you do not have in order for it to be unlocked.
Easy owner points
Play with a disc, ball, etc. Each time your dog gets it, call it over (or tap the screen a few times.). When he or she comes, pet it on the head for a few seconds. He or she should sparkle, giving you one or two owner points. This also makes it easier to get the toy back and repeat.
Get your dog to sit and hold an ear back. The dog will wave its paw. Do it three or four times to get the trick.

Rag doll puppy
When your dog is playing with the pull rope, grab the other end and pull up with the stylus. This should make the puppy hang on the other end like a rag doll. Drag the rope around the screen and eventually the dog will fly off.
Throw your dog
When you have the Pull Rope, try to get your dog suspended in the air. When it does, make it turn slowly (or it will fly off), and release the stylus. Your dog should fly away.
Get the pull rope, then take it out. Wait for your dog to bite it. If you quickly slide the rope up while it is biting, one of two things will happen. It will either let go, or the camera will go above the dog, and it is hanging on the rope. To stop, let go of the rope or swing the rope around until the dog loses its grip and goes flying.

Teach your dog to lay down and beg. While lying down, tell it to beg and your dog should do a handstand.
Walk on two legs
First, make your dog stand on its hind legs. Put the stylus on his or her leg and drag up. He or she should now be standing. REMEMBER: Teach your dog that trick so it is remembered. Then, pull its paw to the area that the training icon is located. It should now be walking on its hind legs.
Walking your dog more than once a day
You can walk your dog once every 25 minutes. Wait 25 minutes with the game on, in sleep mode, or off before walking your dog. Also, it will not be very active during the day if it stays awake at night.
Mark out the path on your map, ending it at the house. If your last few steps ends at the house, wait 25 minutes, then your dog can go slighter further on the next walk. REMEMBER: Make sure to give your dog water after each walk
Question marks on the map
While marking out where you want to go on the map, try to get as many question marks as you can along the way. There are either other dogs or gifts that your dog will find with each question mark.
Blue circles on the map
While walking your dog, the blue circles that appear represent places to go to the bathroom.
Different colored Dogs
While at the pound, pick a breed. You will have three choices for the dog's coloring (light, medium, and dark). If you do not see the color you like, tap "Back", then tap on the breed again until the color and/or gender that you want with the dog appears. REMEMBER: It may take some time to actually get what you want.

Before entering competitions, save the game. If you do badly, turn the game off before the competition ends to avoid ranking loss. REMEMBER: Whenever this is done, the leader's score will change.
On the camera view of your dogs, tap the question mark under the dog's picture. It will bring up a screen with the dog's information on it, such as name, age, gender, etc. At the bottom is a button to go to the "Trick List". Tap on a trick, and tap "OK" for the dog to forget that trick. If you delete the trick by accident, you can re-teach the dog the same trick, and name it the same.

Go to the park, and keep training your dog until you get a message. Use a frisbee, tennis ball, rubber bone, or stick to train it. When playing fetch with your dog, after you throw a frisbee, tennis ball, rubber bone, or stick in the park or homeplace, to retrieve the item tap the screen at least five times to get their attention. Then, play a tug-o-war until you have it again.
Go to the gymnasium and train your dog on the agility course; it will change with each competition won.
Have a dog do a trick repeatedly until a message appears. Name the trick, then the dog will do the trick every so often. Keep teaching it the trick until it does it the first time you call it. REMEMBER: The dog can only do so much training in one day. For more training, wait until the next day. Additionally, when teaching your dog to fetch, every time your dog brings back the item from tapping the screen, pet it until the sparkles appear. Then, take the item and throw it over again. After doing this awhile, your dog will bring back the item automatically, thus making the contests easier.
Each competition should be trained at a different place (disc competition at the park, agility at the gymnasium, and obedience at an empty park or house).
Take your dog for a walk and make sure you have another accessory to change into. Try to go in as many "?" boxes as possible before you go to the park. As soon as you put the line into the park, go directly home. Go through your walk as normal, getting items, meeting dogs, etc., until you reach the park. Once you get to the park, go directly to "Accessories". Change your dogs accessories immediately, then tap "Back". The message "Saving: Don't Turn Off Power" should appear. After it is done saving, turn off the power. Turn it back on, and you will still have all the items collected, and can go for another walk. REMEMBER: You will not get owner points for this. Also, your dog's stamina will not increase.
While teaching your dog to sit, do not say "sit down", just say "sit". By doing this, when you teach it "lay down", it will not get confused. When teaching it to shake, do not say "shake". Instead, say "shake hands". By doing this, it will not get sit confused with shake.
More trick and competition opportunities
Your dog can only learn a certain amount of tricks a day, while the same goes for competitions. To get additional chances at tricks and competitions, change the system date to to the previous day and set the time to 23:59. Exit the menu and turn off the DS. Immediately turn it back on and load the game. You will see the previous day and time shown. After one minute it will be an entire new day, allowing more tricks to be taught and competitions to be won. This can earn you more money if you win the competition. When you want to follow the normal order of things, just set the date and time back to the correct values.
Go on a lot of walks and get as many question marks as possible along the way. Then, go to the second hand store and sell all the items you do not want or your dog(s) you do not like. Some items are less then a dollar, but the amount adds up if you continue doing this. Additionally, when going out for walks, it is best to feed and give your dog water just before you go (if it's hungry or thirsty). By doing this, instead of your dog finding trash, they will be much more likely to find presents. You will see a white box with red ribbons around it. Try walking slow because you cannot go backwards. Touch it with the stylus. Your dog will bring it to you. These items are the ones that are worth more. The tri-color ribbon is worth ten dollars, and the Moai Statue is worth one hundred dollars.
While walking on the sidewalk, tap the floor and your dog will look and sometimes find an item. Also while walking your dog, there will be a question mark on almost every walk that is not illustrated on the map. When you see it on the touch screen take your dogs leash and drag your dog to the present. It will be a present or garbage that your dog should not eat.
Determining "?" box content
When you find a "?" box during a walk, if you dog barks once it is a present; if it barks twice, it is another dog. Additionally, if you find a present wait until the dog runs off the screen. If it turns white, it will be a trainer. If it does not, it is a present.
Get items with a new dog
Go for a walk and go to get an item. Then, go to the park and take off bow or collar and finally shut off and repeat as many times.
throwing your dog
You need a jump rope(you can get one at the discount shop)And three dogs at your house(or you can go to the park that has two dog icons in it).Now, get out the jump rope and start moving it around a bit, the dog closest to the other end of the rope should pick it up to help you spin, now you need to spin a couple of times to get the other dogs interested, when one of the dogs is jumping, make the jump rope go up and down(quickly)instead of around.It may take a little while, but it is pretty funny when you see a dog fly up in the air!!!
It's not until you get a lot of trainer points that you can find a kart on your walk(I'd say about 20,000 points or so)but its definently worth the hard work!There are three different karts, the mario kart, the peach kart, and the worst one, the bowser kart.If the first one you find is the bowser kart, I'm warning you, deffinently DO NOT run into your dog with it! It will chip away at your trainer points,and it will make your very mad, and then when you want your dog to chase it around the side of the room, he'll just stand in the middle of the room and bark/growl!And you don't want that!?But they all have creepy music in the background when you drive them.The reason the bowser kart is so horrible is because it looks creepy, and it has a lot of spikes. Sometimes you should just sell it, because after you scare your dog it won't ever want to play with it again! So please do yourself your dog and me a favor, DO NOT run into your dog with any of the karts!!!!!
Balloons:you can blow them up by blowing into the microphone. DJ'ing: you can be a dj by scratching the records while they are playing.
Other than the usual stuff sometimes there is something more rare, but you won't be able to get them the first time you go, you'll have to go and buy some stuff a few times, then eventually they will have something new!It will always be at the very bottom though heres a list of things it could be and the prices they will be at: 1. balloon, 10 cents 2. pull rope 3.00 3. jump rope, 4.00 4.wind up toy, 12.00 5. talking bird, around 35.00 6. keyboard 80.00 And thats it! So now you know that maybe next time on your walk you should pass by the discount shop!!
Present, or Dog?
Im order to find out whether your getting a present or a dog is to turn up the volume on your D.S. when you come to a ? listen to your dog. If your dog barks once, it's a present, if you dog barks twice, it's a dog.

Cheaper Natural Dog Food Bag
When you are looking for a natural dog food bag at the discount shop, go to both. When you see the natural dog food bag for $2.50 buy it because that is the cheapest price it sells for anywhere. You can even try this with other things like the keyboard. One store sells it for $100.00 while the other store rips you off with a ridiculous price of $180.00!
