The REAL Way To Wipe Data
You must press Start, Select, R, L, A, B, X, Y and the center of the D-Pad to wipe the data and restart.
If you don't press all the buttons, it doesn't work. Even I have to try two or 3 times to get it right usually. :)
When your dog turns around, touch it's hind leg and it will kick.
Get A Dimond Ring
If you get a lucky collar and a clover clock, set the clock up, put the collar on, then walk the dog you put the collar on. Sooner or later you will find a diamond ring called the Promise ring. But be patient, they are worth $1000.
On a walk you might get a record called "Surprise" record. Well as soon as you are finished with your walk listen to it. About in the middle it should make a loud noise and startle your dog.
Get your Old Home Back
When you go to buy a new house, it may take a day or two. But whenever you get tired of your new home and want to get your old one back go to the interior declarator and your first house should be free.
If you have the "Colonel Bogey" record, your dogs will run in circles. The faster you play it, the faster your dog will run.
Sometimes while you take your dog for a walk, you can pick up a Growl Record. When you play it, all you dogs get really upset at it and start attacking each other!
How many items are there?
Balls & cubes:7
Run on Walks
When you are out on a walk with your dog and he/she drags behind just grab the lead and pull it to the top-right corner and your dog should start running!
Calming down your dog
When you are out on a walk with your dog and you meet another dog, what you should do is stroke your dog and it will stop barking and it will be calm and it will lie down.
Tap once on your dog's nose quickly. Teach it to your dog. It will learn it very fast!
Delete All Information
Nintendo Title Screen
If you want to delete your dog and start over, here is what you do: Click on the ds game startup button that says nintendogs when you turn your ds on. When the Nintendo screen comes up after you click on nintendogs, hold down the X, Y, A, B, L, and R button at the same time until a pop-up comes up confirming that you want to delete your dog. Click OK and start over with the dog of your choice. (For all nintendogs games)
Record to Avoid
Avoid using a record called "surprise record". It scares your dogs and brings down your trainer points, and causes your dog to get in a bad mood.
Easy Calling Dogs
Instead of frustrating yourself by calling your dog by the name and it doesn't hear you, either whistle into the mic, or simply tap the screen.
When your dog is laying down, grab it's ear. If it's got wolf ears(pointy) pull it down; but if their ears are droopy, pull it up and hold it. In a few seconds, your dog will be waving up and down (warning:when I did this with my dogs too much, they got angry; stop when you hear them growl or you'll lose their trust until you feed them).
Get Presents Without Walking
If you leave your dogs/dog alone without doing anything for half an hour, eventually your dog will go outside bring you back a present.
Toys to Avoid
1.Balloons: They pop and scare your dog(s).
2.Dog Photos: They hate them.
3.Bubble Blower: They kinda spook your dog when it touches them and pop.
4.Racing Carts: If you keep bumping into your dog, they'll learn to hate it. If you just let your dog chase the racing kart, they'll enjoy it and will only hate it if you keep bumping your dog with the kart.
When you go on walks, very rarely a parrot will appear. Give him something worth $200 or more and he will give you a gold bar which is worth $2,000!
You tell your Nintendog to dance then you say jump and your Nintendog will start to jump while dancing. It's a really cool trick.

RC Helicopter Hint
If you find an RC Helicopter on a walk, you can press the R button to change views. Press the A button to fly, and use the control pad to steer. RC Helicopters are cool, but don't hit your dog with it to much, or they will hate it.
A Don't With Baths
When you are giving your dog a bath DON'T press the sponge twice or else you will use up another bottle of shampoo
When you get the Naptime record go to Music and put it on. In a few minutes your dogs will be sleeping like babies.
Get More Money!
When you get two of a toy, sell it to the second-hand shop, they'll pay you for it. What you get for it may not seem like much, but belive me, the cash adds up.
Giving Your Dog a Treat
When you click the light bulb in the top right hand corner you can talk to your dog. Then if your dog understands it there will be a yellow light bulb on top of his head. Then you can take it with your stylis and feed it to your dog, because it listened to you.
Get Cool Stuff
Go on lots of walks until you get a lucky collar and a clover clock. Put on the lucky collar and set the clock to clover clock. Go on a walk, and expect really cool things.
Double the Tricks!
Tricks sometimes have both left and right versions, so if you teach your dog both versions, you'll have double the tricks!
If you want faster walks all you have to do is when your dog walks at the back of your screen tug on the leash and your dog will start running!
But you have to keep the leash at the edge of your screen or your dog will stop running. And it's a lot faster to pass the presents sitting on the ground, so you have to make sure that you look at the bottom of your screen or you might miss a present!
When you go for a walk, blue boxes with question marks on them are either other dogs or presents.
Tell your dog to roll over. Then, tell it to spin right away. Your dog should complete a full 360 degree turn. This trick scores high in contests.
When your dog is in the begging position, grab hold of one of his paws and lift it. Hold for a few seconds and let go. Your dog should be dance'n!
As soon as you push POWER
Hold a, b, x, y, l and r and it will reset and it will delete all your memory so you can start the game again.
All you have to do for this cheat, is this: go to supplies and find your dog shampoo. Then, when you're at the screen where you wash your dog, sponge your dog with the sponge. After you've finished shampooing your dog so that it's covered in bubbles (but don't wash your dog until the showerhead is blinking), use the showerhead to wash most (but not all) of the bubbles off your dog. Then, go back to the sponge and sponge your dog. It shouldn't take you that long to wash you dog off like you just sponged your dog until the showerhead is blinking. This saves you some time. After you've washed your dog, be sure to brush your dogs coat!
To delete data, you have to hold a, b, y, x, l,and r in the very beginning while the game loads. It will ask if you want to delete data, and yes that means losing everything. So just touch yes and you can start everything over.
Poop and Garbage
To pick up poop, just tap it simple as that. DON'T JUST LEAVE IT THERE! Also, DON"T LET YOUR DOG SNIFF GARBAGE! He/she will eventually eat it and get sick. Just tug his/her leash and he/she will walk by it.
Get a Mario Kart
There's an item you can find on your walks that is a toy version of a racing kart from Mario Kart 64, it'll be in your Toys section and you can actually drive it. Three things about the racing karts:
1. You can't bump into your dog, otherwise, afterawhile, it'll hate it,
2. it has the same controls as the real Mario kart, "A" to go forward "B" to go back, and the D-Pad (in this case) to move it around
3. you can use the R and L buttons to sitch from the view of the room to right behind the cart. If you want to give your pup a workout, drive the kart around the border of the room, and you'll have your dog running in circles.
Note: As far as I know there's the Peach Kart, Bowser Kart, and Mario Kart in toy form in this game.
When you are teaching your dog a trick and the little lightbulb pops up, if you drag the lightbulb to the dog's mouth it gives him free food.
Teach the Tricks
Some people want to teach tricks to their dogs, but keep messing up. In order to teach a trick to your dog, you have to:
1. Speak clearly and loud enough
2. Make sure your dog isn't confused
3. Speak the same word in the same tone 5 times in a row without messing up.
If you've trained your dog with one frizbee, for a long time, make sure you have toys that aren't the same color as the frizbee. The reason is that if you've trained it with a red frizbee and throw a red rubber bone in your house or in the park, just to relieve it's stress, it'll pick it up and give it to you. The other thing is that you have to keep training it with one frizbee, otherwise it'll just forget its training with the last frizbee. If you've trained it well it'll always bring the frizbee back.
For more types of dogs, find another person with Nintendogs (other version) then both go to bark mode, you can get new types of dogs from the other person!
Sit: Pet the dogs head and then quickly slide the stylus down it's nose.
Lay Down: While the dog is sitting pet its head and then quickly slide the stylus down its nose.
Shake: Grab one of the dog's front paws and move it up and down.
Roll Over: While sitting or laying down push the stylus to the left or right and then push it to the left or right again while it's on it's side and then its belly should face up.
Jump: If your gog shakes its butt that means it wants to play so tap the air above them and they'll jump into the air.
Beg: When your dog is standing touch its belly and slide the stylus up its neck to get them into the begging motion.
Spin: When your dog's butt if facing you grab its tail and move it to a side and then your dog should then chase after it.
Stand: While your dog is sitting or laying drag the stylus from the bottom to the top.
Backflip: Make sure the your dog is sitting then tap the air above it for a backflip.
Sneeze: Tap your dog's nose.
Breakdancing: Make sure your dog is on his back and then grab his tail.
Howl: If a police car or an ambulance goes by your dog might howl at it you have to catch the teach button fast though.
Hi-5: After you teach your dog "paw" (aka shake hands) ask it for his/her paw then grab his paw and pull it upwards. The lightbulb will pop up and say "hi-5."
Relax/play dead: From the lie down position, move the stylus from one side of the dogs head to the other.
These are tough tricks. Make sure youre dog is in a good mood and knows all the basic tricks.
Flip into air from back - Tell your dog to lay down then jump as fast as possible don't pet the dog tell after the trick.
Backflip - Tell your dog to sit then jump right away.
Hand Stand - Tell your dog to lay down then beg.
Turring in a Circle While Begging - Tell your dog to beg then to chase it's tail (or spin.)
Dancing (Fidgiting on hind paws) - Tell your dog to beg then grap it's front paw help it so it's only on it's hind paws then let go.
Bunny Hop - Have your dog dance as I said above then tell it to jump.
Breack Dance - Tell Your dog to roll over then tell it to spin (or chase it's tail)
Remember when you are doing these tricks not to pet your dog during the series of tricks. Just don't do anything at all but the tricks. When the icon to teach a trick comes up tap it as fast as possible because it goes away fast.
Have your dog upsidown and with your stylus stroke up and down five times in a row then the click the lightbulb and your dog knows one of the best tricks in the game! It gets a highscore in the obedieance trial.
