Re: when I went to turn my idog on it made these weird...
Check underside near front legs and switch the "on". Volume is tail front to back to change. Push the nose and rub the face and also try switching the connection cord end to end to the MP3 player or Ipod.

Check that the iDog is powered on if it doesn't respond to your commands. Press its nose to activate the toy.
Verify that the iDog has fresh batteries installed if the
dog doesn't turn on. Use a Phillips screwdriver to open the dog's
battery compartment, located on the its right back leg. Insert two new
AA-sized batteries according to the "+" and "-" symbols listed in the
Inspect the iDog's connection to your iPod if it doesn't
move and dance to your iPod's music. Plug the iDog's connector cable
into your iPod. The cable end labeled "B" gets inserted into the
headphone jack on your iPod. The opposite end goes into the front left
leg of the iDog.
Make sure your iPod is powered on if the toy is connected to
the media player and is turned on, but not moving to the music. Your
iPod may need recharged by connecting it to a computer with its included
Reset the iDog if it continually freezes or stops moving in
the middle of a dance. Use the tip of a pen, paper clip or similar thin

It sounds like the battery leaked. First, disolve some baking soda in water and carefully and as dry as possible, wipe out as much or all of the residue. Attempt after a few hours of drying to re-insert fresh new batteries and see if it turns on. If not, I would save the leaked batteries in a baggie and contact the battery manufacturer via carrier mail and explain that the batteries leaked in your device and it will no longer work and you would appreciate either a repair or replace. Most times if you have the bad batteries and mail them in also, they will either reimburse you for the product if they are not able to repair it. I know this has worked for energizer and rayovac batteries. Be civil and professional in the letter and I bet you get some resolution. Good Luck and hope this works for you. Actually, before cleaning the product, you should probably contact the battery company first if possible so the proof is still in the iDog. Good luck
You don't "Charge" iDog AMP'D, you change the battery pack located under it's hind feet. When your iDog does the intro when you turn it on every five seconds, that means it's time for some new batteries!
There a lot of products out there that claim to be made for the ipod and other mp3 players. Usually, there are different problems;cheap, thin wiring sometimes can break. There can be loss of audio on the idog or any other speakers like fold out speakers. Cool or not, they are usually not well made. I had what I thought was a really nice set of speakers. Heh, after I plugged in the first time, my ipod was cracking in the speakers and the ear buds. Even though they are cool, light up, and are (what you think is) a good brand, it does't mean that it is well made. I suggest an Apple iHome.
I had this problem too, I was going crazy and worried about it, your iDog AMP'D Just needs new batteries, to change it, unscrew the metal screws that are located under it's back legs, and replace the old batteries with three new AA ones. Make sure they are good batteries!
