   You do NOT need to buy another DS or buy the Best Friends Version if you
   already own a copy of Nintendogs. All versions contain every breed. The
   only thing that makes the Best Friends version different are the starter

  2. Such-and-such breed isn't on your list! Does that mean I can't get it?!

   See above. All breeds are available in all versions!

  3. What does the Best Friends version come with?

   The Best Friends version comes with the following:

   Either a Teal or Pearl Pink Nintendo DS
   2 x Stylus
   AC Adapter
   Recharagable Battery Pack
   Nintendogs DS Skin (can be found inside the white cardboard)
   Nintendogs Best Friends Edition Game Card
   Soft Bone Shaped Screen Cleaner
   Wrist strap

  4. Where can I buy the special edition DS? (Brian)

   According to the Nintendogs website the Pearl Pink version is only 
   available at Target and Toys R Us. However, stock generally appears to
   be low so as time goes on E-Bay may be your best bet. 
   The Teal version is available at most good electronics stores (if they
   have it in stock)

  5. Can you make two save games to share with your 
     friend/mother/sister/pet iguana etc.? (Submitted by dominican2456)

   It isn't possible to make seperate save games for each person. However,
   using the Dog Hotel facility (found under the shopping section) you can
   swap your puppies and each have one or two pups of your own.

  6. How do I obtain trainer points? When something is unlocked how do I
     know? (submitted by Fred)

   Trainer points are obtained by taking general care of your puppy 
   (i.e feeding, watering, bathing etc.) but also by taking them for walks
   and earning placements in competitions. When breeds or interior
   decorations are unlocked, a message window will pop up and announce what
   you have unlocked. Other items such as the jump rope will not be
   announced but instead will be found randomly in the discount shops. It
   may take one or two visits to the store until you find the item you're 
   looking for but keep trying! Also, I only found the jump rope after 
   adopting my 2nd dog, I assume this is because a minimum of 2 dogs are
   required to play with the jump rope.
  7. I can't teach my puppy tricks/walk them/enter them into competitions 
     anymore! (Submitted by Mebi)

   This could be because you have reached your daily quota. Puppies can only
   learn 3-4 tricks a day and only enter 3 competitions a day, try waiting 
   until tomorrow.  You can walk your puppy every 30 minutes so try waiting 
   a while before you try again.

   If you are certain that this is not the problem, have you recently changed
   the time or date on the DS? Have you used the DS card in another DS? If 
   yes, this could be causing slight problems with your DS. Don't panic, 
   just wait a day or two and all should be okay. Try not to use your card 
   with more than one DS.

  8. My dog keeps forgetting it's name! (Submitted by LvrofGames)

   Try petting the dog continually until you hear a tone and see a 
   sparkle appear.
  9. My puppy gets scared when it's on the see-saw. How do I get it to 
     walk across? (Submitted by tbearkakeyere)

   This happens when your puppy is inexperienced at the obstacle. To get 
   your puppy to walk across tap or drag the stylus to the middle of the 
   see-saw. This may take a number of tries and encouragement but it will
   work eventually. When your puppy reaches the white block on the other
   side of the see-saw, press behind your puppy to stop it from jumping 
   off before the board has tipped to the otherside.

   If it doesn't work straight away don't worry, it will eventually as your
   puppy gets more confident and practises.
  10. How do I make my puppy run faster? (Submitted by v0mitd0ll)

   Practise. Practise. Practise. In addition to this you could try getting
   your puppy to chase a kart around the room (once you have found one!)

  11. I keep seeing presents on my walk but I can't pick them up! 
      What do I do?
   You can indeed pick up presents that you find on the street (not marked
   in ? boxes). To pick them up gently tug the leash to the left and your
   puppy will automatically pick them up.
   A tip to make sure you don't miss a present is to watch the dog icon on
   the top screen when walking your dog. If the icon stops and your dog does
   not (i.e to scratch or use the bathroom etc.), this is a sign that either
   a present or some garbage is about to appear, so be ready! I find it 
   easiest to see the dog icon stopping when my puppy is running. 
   Don't forget! Don't let your dog eat the trash it finds on the street!
   Tug the leash to the right to get it to leave it alone.
