So when I first got my ds, I didn't want to get Nintendogs because I heard that it got boring, and it just didn't look fun. But since I got gamefly, I decided what the heck; I'd rent it.
It is so much fun! I really wish they had a keep it price. I don't want to send it back!! I love my puppies. :(
So, let's see, as a practical review; The contests are a little hard, yes, but I think some are easier depending on the dog. My husky is fabulous at the disc competition, but terrible at obedience. My dachshund is champ at obedience, but okay at disc. So, it depends on the dog. Not necessarily the breed either.
Downsides... I wish they'd give you more money at contests, and that it didn't take so many trainer points to get different dogs. I bet it takes forever to get all the breeds! And I wish the dogs could grow up and have puppies! (I am a lover of the pc dogz 5).
Last word: I am totally buying my own copy next paycheck!! Thanks gamefly!
