Re: Nintendogs

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.

Training icon wont appear

at base, press the hand icon and call pet's name over and over until your dog remembers it's name. rub pet's head and swipe down with stylus or finger. press icon (?) in upper right corner. recording will start, tell dog to sit (several times) and stores and items should unlock. care section in items category will have books for tricks and care tips.
good luck!

The cartridge could be faulty... Or maybe you have to unlock those icons. Have you tried reinserting the cartridge?

At the very first beggining, when you come in with your 1rst puppy, follow the instructions. When it says to give your puppy a name, you will have the mic icon in the middle of the screen. Tap with your pen and then say the name, but not too far of your DS. You will see, during you say the name, like a colored "timer" on the mic icon. For the tricks, when your puppy is doing a thing, for exemple, sit or roll over, a bulb icon with show off in the up-right corner of your touch screen. Tap it with the stylus, and do the same thing : say the name of that trick ( ex."roll over"). You will see the colored mic timer and your puppy will save the information with little stars around its head. You have to repeat it like 4-5 time before it really knows it and do it again. It depend on the puppy ( some are 3-4 time, some more...) I hope it answered your question. You can visit this site you have a whole section on the very beggining.
It's hard sometime...I just passed 30 minutes to get the dog a name he remembered...Choose a name that you can repeat with the EXACT same intonation.

Nintendogs Game

contact the person you bought it from and tell them of this problem, what they have done is faulty advertising, if they wont give you a replacement or a refund report to ebay of the problem, i have had this done to me on several occasions and they have not gotten away with it, don't let them get away with this.
