I was a little worried at first that my daughter would get bored with this game really quick. But she loves playing with it time and time again. She loves the interacting part of it, she calls the dog and the dog actually comes. Terrific game for my 7yr old daughter.
This was a good game but you can't delete your profile (As far as I know I bought this last year but only kept it for a couple months. I'm in tight with GameStop trading) so I got stuck with a dang Yorkie, boxer, and a poodle. Also, during school I ask my mom to feed them and give them water, but she doesn't know how to even turn the dang DS on. (LOL!!!!!!) It is very good, but unless you know how to delete profiles, or want to be stuck with the last renter's dogs, I recommend dropping 20 to 30 bucks to get a fresh start, but if you want to try it first, go ahead. It is pretty much the same with the others (Different versions). The only reason the scores are different is because of the breeds of dogs. Worth buying more than renting, but go ahead and rent it, just to try it!
