    have tried holding down abxy left end right but nothing happens!have had 4 different people try and even tried a different console! our computers donot have a card slot big enough to try erasing it through the pc. Help!

  • Brandybutter Dec 25, 2008

    Holding down the ABXYLR keys also doesnt work and the labrador just walks around. Our daughter hasnt managed to name it so we want to start again, and will follow the naming advice given on this site to make the name not 'cutesy' but strong and loud.

After a lot of frustrated searching for a response, have sussed the resetting.

When you tap the dog to launch the game, immediately hold down the XYAB buttons and the Left and Right ones (WHICH I HAVE FINALLY REALISED ARE NOT THE EXTREMETIES OF THE CROSS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DS SCREEN) but are on the outside top of the whole console on either side of where you put the card in.

Almost immediately the screen will say, do you want to delete the previous play, are you sure, really really sure, and then it thinks about it for a good while and then it is reset.

We still think the main problem of not being able to actually name a dog will continue, but at least we have reset it.

Hello. To restart you game, turn off your DS, turn it back to nitendogs, and at the loading screen press a,b,x,y, left and right all at the same time. It should delete the data.

Hi OK what you need to do is if you want to erase the previous game and erase it and tap the slot that says new game this should work.

On starting an apparently new nintendogs labrador game my eight year old daughter found a poodle puppy already chosen and named - how do we get rid of this in order that she can start the game for herself?...


This is what ya have to do.
While the game's loading press L, R, A, B, Y, X, AND the keypad at the same time. It'll ask if you want to data reset, press yes. Then it'll ask if you're sure, press yes again.

I bought a used ds game for my daughter but cant erase the old info


To delete your whole game on nintendogs just press and hold the a, b, x, y, l, and r buttons all at the same time while the game is loading prior to the title screen appearing. (Right when it says nintendo) But beware if you erase all saved data, it and your puppies can never be recovered.

To delete just one dog go to the Dog Hotel and choose donate. Pick the dog you want to get rid of and you'll never see that dog again.

Memory loss


Quick, check every menu on the game. This is what happened to a friend who had Mario Kart. "Deleat data" was accadently selected when that person was trying to edit something. The data was lost. Check all menus. The wrong thing could have been selected. If you cannot find a way to deleat data, then make sure you never turned off the DS, DS light, DSi, or whatever when saving. If it was turned off when saving, then the following can happen: Nothing, Data Erase, or data destruction. Data destruction means the cartridge is ruined. That didn't happen to you, though. I am sorry, but you must start over.

How my delete old nintendog DS files

Okay, you have to turn on the ds and click on "nintendogs" if the Ds is on manual setup if ... if it isn't ignore this bit xD




When the game is just starting to load you have to hold in L+R+A+B+X+Y...

Just hold them all in and if you have done it right a message should come up saying summet like ..."are you sure you want to erase data" click yeah ..

If this don't work you ain't done it right xD

I clear my game every second day doing this


Well, I hope I've helped and good luck xD

Saying saved files are corrupt and must be deleted


My Nintendogs game has done that before; I had a Labrador Retreiver, and I had it for about 3-4 years. Then, it said that the files were corrupted. I had to start a new game all over again. Try that and tell me if it works out.
