    Our daughters received this game for Christmas. I was very upset to see the name of one of the dogs was 'STUPID'! And you can't change the name? Why would the programmers do this???? Very sad....

Hello emmajo, i have nintendogs too, if you want to change the name of your dog, i am highly sorry but it is impossible! you have to buy a new dog. but you can donate your old dog to the hotel if you don't want it any more! hope this helps! Rosebetts xx

The naming is a little tricky, you have to say the name with almost 100% clearity and also with the same tone everytime!

I was doing it for 1 hour once but then i said the name with a tone i can repeat over and over again!

Hope it helps!

Try keeping your voice the same tone. Or you can reset the entire game by pressing ABXYLR while on the "Nintendo" screen. If the problem continues, try checking your microphone for any foreign material.

Dogs can't die on Nintendogs.
And for your problem, perhaps you should speak alittle louder and clearer. If that doesn't work it could be a flaw in the game card.

This is a very frustrating part of the game. Believe me I know from experience!! When you first get a dog you want to talk to it or call it over. You could even try to take it for a walk but it wont let you because it doesn't know its name! So when you train it you just have to keep saying his name. It took me like a month to get it right. It just takes time and patience.

Try to touch the dog using the touch screen below, thereafter, the dog will notice that and come to you. Try this for a few times, then it will instruct you to record the pup's name via the microphone.
