Chihuahua's are dumb! But cute!

Don't get a male Chihuahua or you will be teaching the first command "Sit" forever! Especially if the kennel tells you he is "shy". Steer clear! I recommend The King Charles Cavalier he gets 8.5 out of 10 for appearance and 10/10 for contests! Here is how I rate the other first time adoptables in this game. For the Chihuahua I give it 9/10 for appearance and 8/10 for contests. Even worse in the contests if it is a shy male Chihuahua! By the way I LOVE Chihuahuas! I have one in real life a long hair black chi named Nina! She gets 100/10 for everything in my book but she’s not for sale! LOL Back to the adoptables rating scale, for the German Shepard I give him a 6/10 for appearance and a 9/ 10 in the contests. Sorry, I know they are beautiful dogs in real life but Nintendo did not do this magnificent breed any favors when crafting this ugly little puppy for the game world. For the Boxer I give him a 9.5 for appearance, more if you love boxers, and a definite 10/10 in the contests! This dog is smart and fast and agile! I recommend the Boxer as your first dog, even if you bought the game for the cute white Chihuahua on the cover like I did :) The Yorkshire Terrier gets 7/10 in appearance and 8/10 in contests. Now that you have some idea of the dogs you will be able to work with right off the bat I say choose carefully or you may end up hating the game because you get so frustrated at working with such a dumb but cute dog! Definitely never ever get a male dog because everytime you go for a walk (and you will be going for A LOT of walks) he will lift his leg and mark his territory every two feet. Stop and go stop and go urghhhhhhhhh don’t let him get away with it right from the start or you will have a very hard habit to break. ...If not an IMPOSSIBLE habit to break. They will just do it over and over again! GET A FEMALE!!! You’ll thank me later. Now for the Shetland Sheepdog...my sister-in-law has one of these beautiful dogs and she is just amazingly beautiful and smart! But not the Nintendogs version. It has short ugly hair and only gets 7/10 for appearance (sorry but I diddn’t make the game just stating the facts here) and only 8/10 in the contest arenas. I really love this game and I can’t wait to get 4,000 trainer points that’s when an “UNLOCKABLE” dog the Siberian Husky will come available for me to adopt! This is one of the many tips you will find online about this game and the other Nintendogs versions. For more tips go to WWW DOT neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=145657&rid=134573 The Siberian Husky got 10/10 for appearance! Good job Nintendo! And 11 out of 10 for the contest arenas! Of course you could just buy Nintendogs: Dachshund & Friends and you can adopt the Siberian Husky right from the beginning! If you are looking for the prettiest smartest dog go with the Siberian Husky! But if you have Chihuahua and Friends already, I recommend you adopt either The King Charles Cavalier Spaniel or The Boxer. They both score high in appearance and contests! But if you MUST adopt a Chihuahua make sure it is a female! Have Fun!!! Pam & Nina

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this product to anyone! I love this game, not only for the incredible graphics, but also for the variety of things to do! You can take your dogs on walks, do three different types of contests, and so much more. You can also have up to EIGHT dogs! This game is great for people of all ages. It would be a great game to get someone, for a special holiday. This game is totally AWESOME!

My daughter received this game as a Christmas present and she loves it. The puppies are so life-like and each puppy has its own personality. You start out by getting a puppy from the kennel. You choose the breed of the puppy and then decide male or female. Each puppy is a different color than the others and have different personalities. (As I said earlier.) After you get the puppy you then teach it its name using the microphone. You say it over and over until it learns its name. For my daughter, it didn't take long for the puppy to learn its name. Then after the puppy learns its name you teach it how to sit. That was the hardest part for my daughter, but it wasn't too hard. (She is 12.) Then after that you are free to do what you want. You can play with your puppy, buy things for it such as food, water, shampoo, brushes, and toys, take it on walks, enter it into different competitions, (up to 3 times a day), and give it baths and brush it. This game is great for all age groups and it teaches the kids responsibility. I recommend this game highly.

This game is awesome! It is so much fun and easy to play. My kids both have this game and their dogs can interact. It is cool to take care of your dogs and train them. You may start to "bond" with your dogs. The graphics are really good. I would buy the version that includes your favorite breed and start from there.

This product was really fun AT FIRST. But then it gets REALLY boring! all you do is walk your dog,feed and water them,play with them,and enter them in contests,the reason why the contests gets boring is because,you end up getting enough money and really do not need to enter the contests any more.And another bad thing is that u can only have 3 dogs in the house at one time! Which I though stunk. But,I know some people who are in love with this game,apparently,I am not one of them!!!!! Hope this review helps!

My daughter wanted this game for Christmas and has some cute aspects but it can be really annoying also. It is very difficult to get the dog to learn his name (even simple, one syllable names) and even after the game says he has learned his name he keeps forgetting it. The instructions state the dog must learn his name and learn to sit before you can shop and buy him food or any supplies; however, you can't teach him any tricks until you can enter the trick screen which you can't do until you shop.

  • A. I recommend this game for kids who want pets and want to learn what it is like to take care of a dog. I also recommend it for parents of children who want dogs. Tell them if they can beat this game they can get a dog! They will learn quickly how much work there actually is in taking care of a dog. Make sure they feed walk their dogs 3 times a day on a schedule! Once in the morning, once in the afternoon and then one more time just after dinner. After dinner the puppy will start to get tired just like real puppies! The age group that best fits this description in 6 to 18 for learning a lesson, and 18 and up for having the fun of an on-the-go virtual pet! I am 45 and am an empty nester with a real Chihuahua that I baby like a real child and I recommend this game for Women like me too! If you love puppies here’s one for you! I have the little white Chihuahua and I named him Pepe’ hey is adorable but very hard to teach obedience to. They warned me at the kennel that he was a shy puppy, he is and he walks away from me all the time and hasn’t won a single competition yet! Very stubborn...BUT CUTE! He may be bad at obedience but he is very good at a catching Frisbees and super quick on the agility course. So don’t adopt a boy dog and don’t adopt a shy dog and you’ll do great! They stay puppies forever! Enjoy your game!
