Nintendogs: Chiuaua & Friends Discussion
Dogs are free-spirited animals and thus, they need a lot of play time and exercise. Keep your dog healthy and happy by scheduling routine walks around the neighborhood. Walking is an important feature in the game as it allows dogs to build their stamina, strength, and more importantly, their confidence. But don't get too overboard in walking your dog. After every walk, your dog becomes too fatigued to the point where it can only go for walks once every thirty minutes.
Walks are planned through an overhead map of the neighborhood. Use your stylus to draw a route to your target location and back. The maximum distance
Walking is an important feature in the game as it allows dogs to build their stamina, strength, and more importantly, their confidence.
that your dog can travel is represented by a yellow bar located on the bottom left of the screen. Think of the yellow bar as the dog's stamina. The yellow bar will decrease according to the distance of the route. To increase your dog's stamina, simply have more walks with your dog!
While walking your dog, you will encounter many events and surprises. The question mark boxes on the neighborhood map represent an unknown event during the walk. The event can be of two things: 1. a gift that your dog finds or 2. an encounter with another dog and its dog owner.
Venture as far off in the neighborhood. You may be rewarded with a rare item for your troubles.
Gifts can be found through a question mark box or at random locations on the street. When walking your dog, look out for random gifts lying on the street since they're not visible on the overhead map. At times, your dog will fetch a random gift on its own. Most of the gifts are nothing special since the neighborhood store offers the exact items. But once in a while, your dog will find a rare item unique to your version of Nintendogs.
Listed below are the rare items for each version of Nintendogs:
Nintendogs: Dachshund and Friends
Red Plastic bone
Nintendogs: Chihuahua and Friends
Blue Plastic Bone
Nintendogs: Labrador and Friends
Red and Yellow Plastic Bone
The only way to acquire a rare item not found in your version of Nintendogs is to use the Bark Mode feature. In Bark Mode, you wirelessly connect with another person's DS to share items and interact with other dogs. But acquiring a different version's rare item is only possible if the other user is willing to give it up.
Dachshund and Friends
Don't let a Beagle's floppy ears and droopy eyes fool you that it's a sad pup. That's far from the truth! In fact, Beagles are one of the most gregarious and inquisitive animals.
Dominating in size as well as stature, the Boxer is a big, lean animal. Due to their exceptional physical capabilities, they are a perfect choice for Disc and Agility contests.
Not only are Golden Retrievers adept in learning, they are also very friendly and outgoing. Although they are quick learners, they have a short attention span and need to be constantly stimulated with activities to keep them in focus. Adhering to their retriever name, they are especially fond of finding things.
Badger hunters by breed, the Miniature Daschund were born fearless. But due to their petite size, they are inadequate in physical activities that involve jumping or running.
Some would say that Pugs have some of the ugliest mugs in the canine world. Their squashed-up face is an eyesore for some, and unfortunately, causes them to snort and sneeze. Drop the "hate-o-rade" and give the poor dog a chance. You'll be surprised that pugs are easily trainable and very playful.
Although not much of learner, Shih Tzu's are remarkable low maintenance and friendly animals. Their non-shedding fur is perfect for owners who hate to clean.
Siberian Huskies are larger than most dogs, thus making them naturally built for the outdoors. Their superior size, high energy, and uncanny reflexes are considerable advantages in physical competitions. But be prepared to clean frequently--Husky shed year round.
Chihuahua and Friends
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Now this is a charming dog! As one of the most popular breeds in England, the miniature Spaniel acts like a figure of royalty--they're extremely well mannered and behaved. They are also incredible generous and will frequently search for gifts to bring back to the house. When adopting a Cavalier, make sure to give their silky coat the pedigree treatment. Their long silky hairs require a ton of brushing.
Here's an example of a tiny fellah with a big attitude. Even though it's the world smallest dog, the Chihuahua won't take crap from any dog or man. The feistiness of the breed really shows when you interrupt it during meals or playtime. Other than its attitude, the Chihuahua is known for its quickness.
Strong, muscular, and extremely trainable, the German Shepherd could be considered the ideal pet. Its sharp intelligence is a valuable asset in rapidly learning new tricks; the angular and long body structure is well suited for the physical demands of a Disc or Agility contest; and his versatility, such as his short hair coat, makes it a low maintenance pet.
No, the dog is not from the land of shet. Shelties are quite intelligent and thus easily trainable. Depending on its mood, you may even teach it four tricks instead of the usual three per day.
Yorkshire Terriers are a tiny breed--a full grown is barely nine inches tall. But the Yorkshire Terriers' colossal personality makes up for its lack of size. They are energetic and extremely playful. Though, they may be difficult to train since they tend to lose focus. They also have a demanding grooming habit because their silky long coat requires constant brushing and bathing.
Labrador and Friends
Active owners take note: Labrador Retrievers are one of the most popular dogs due to its active and outgoing nature. They are naturally strong and muscular; well suited for those who demand the best for Agility and Disc competitions. Their working dog mentality makes them committed for training and exercising. Also, their intelligence is unrivaled by any other breeds. May be that's why Labrador Retrievers have been used for everything, from hunting to search and rescue.
Tall enough to pass as a large breed, but compact to be considered a small dog, the Miniature Pinscher is the apartment-friendly version of a big dog. Apartment owners will love the fact that Pinschers have low maintenance grooming habits due to its smooth, short hair coat.
Resembling a grumpy old man, the Miniature Schnauzer is a smaller version of its cousin, the Standard Schnauzer. Although smaller than its bigger cousin, the Mini Schnauzer is an active and strong breed. Be patient when training. When learning new tricks, their lack of focus and average intelligence may result in spending a little more time than usual.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Perhaps, one of the smartest breeds in the game, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi's is widely known for its intelligence. Even Hollywood acknowledges this fact, as seen in the recent anime series Cowboy Bebop, which featured Ein, an incredibly gifted Pembroke. Not only are Corgis intelligent, they have a vast amount of energy.
A small agile dog, the Shiba Inu was originally bred in Japan as a hunter. They have a reputation for being highly intelligent and independent. It's not unusual for a Shiba to learn a new trick in a few attempts.
It's no surprise that in the 18th century, just about every royal family owned a Toy Poodle. Who can blame them for owning such a majestic dog? Toy Poodles are considered to be one of the smartest dog breeds. They are able to adapt and learn just about anything you throw at them.
Jack Russel Terrier
Stroke your dog's head from top to bottom.
Stand / beg
Pet the dog's throat to make it tilt its head up. Once the head is facing up, stroke his throat from bottom to top. Alternatively, you can touch its belly and slide the stylus up to its neck.
While your dog is sitting, stroke its head from top to bottom.
Lying on its side (Roll over)
While lying on the floor, move the stylus on its body in a horizontal motion (left to right, or right to left.)
On its back
Have the dog lie on its side and move the stylus on its body in a horizontal motion.
Repeatedly tap the stylus above the dog's head. The dog may be more inclined to jump if it's consistently wagging its tail.
This could be done either standing or sitting. Grab your dog's paw and move it up and down.
Run in a circle
Grab your dog's tail and hold it in front of its face. It will run in a circle, chasing its tail.
The majority of advance tricks must be done with voice commands. Don't pet your dog while the trick is in process. Once you start petting, the dog will assume that the teaching process is over.
To make your dog to stand on its two front paws, command it to lie on its stomach and tell it to stand/beg.
Get your dog to lie on its back, and then tell your dog to jump. It will perform a summersault in the air
Back Flip from a sitting position
Tell it to sit and then jump
Turning in circles while standing
Command your dog to beg/stand. Once it's on its hind legs, tell it to run in a circle.
These are Just SOME of the tricks that can be learnt
