5.0 out of 5 stars How much is that Doggy in the window? - by Holly, aged 12, 28 Aug 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Nintendogs Labrador Retriever & Friends (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Nintendogs is a fun and rather addictive game. You start off by choosing from a range of 6 cute puppy breeds (you unlock more breeds as the game progresses) and then take him or her home.
It takes a few minutes for your puppy to settle in and then you can name it. You use the microphone to say your puppy's name out loud (but speak clearly and at a reasonable volume or it will not work)
Once your puppy has learnt its name, you can take it for walks and enter it in competitions. Make sure you stroke your puppy and play with it regulary or it might get annoyed and run away.
Walking your dog gives it the opportunity to exercise, meet other dogs, train in the gym, play in the park and find presents on the street. Every time you take your dog for a walk, the distance that it walks is increased next time you take your dog out. The first time you take your dog to the gym, it will be slow, probably knock down jumps and be scared of the see-saw, but these things will gradually improve every time you visit the gym. Use your stylus to guide your dog through the obstacles and to indicate where the dog should go. Practising in the gym will help you when you enter agility events.
You can also practise for disc competitions in the park by selecting a disc to train with from your inventory in the sport section. Throw the disc by using the stylus and if the dog doesn't bring it back to you, tap on the bottom screen to make the dog come to you.
Obedience trials are usually difficult (especially when in the championships) You train your puppy for obedience trials at home. It is better to work individually with your puppy when training (because your puppy can get distracted), so it is best to leave any other dogs you have in the dog hotel. The only thing that annoys me sometimes about the game is training (obedience) because it's very difficult to teach your puppy the right commands, and sometimes if you say "sit", it might lie down, which can be irritating.
Once you have money (winning money in competitions or selling items in the second hand shop), you can re-style your house with lovely designs at the interior decorator's shop.
Overall, it is a good game with realistic graphics, good microphone and extremely cute puppies!!
I would recommend this game to younger players and dog lovers!
Happy Gaming!
