I am particularly fond of this game since my dad forbids me to get a real dog, but this is just the thing to pacify me until I do get one. It's fun, engaging, and addictive, and its relatively simple. I love teaching my dog tricks and also going for walks, buying furniture etc. this is like Nintendogs on the iPod touch but better!
she is so painstakingly AW-dorable!

•Bottom Line:
This is a MUST HAVE for all you dog lovers out there. I swear you will never regret spending those 99 cents.
This is only version 1, it's really good but I must say, it needs to be updated NOW. Because its fun in the first couple hours but quickly you have gotten all the stuff from all the shops, completed all the contests and then the game turns into not a dog sim but watching a dog run around a house. With no source of income, and nothing else to do. And that's not very fun.
So, please just add some more toys (maybe you can discover more on walk mode), more furniture and garden stuff, and also more competitions and/or more levels of competition. And more ways to earn coins :D Like maybe you could train your dog to be a firedog, a watchdog, guard dog , etc.???
And also in the garden you should be able to actually grow stuff that you can make into dog food.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider my suggestions it would make a HUGE difference in this game! If you do I will change my rating back to 5 stars!
Thank you!

This is absolutely the best!!

This is definetly the best virtual pet app i've found in the app store! I also have Touch Pets Dogs by NgMoco and iPuppy World by TRINITI interactive limited and by far, this is the best iPhone app out there! Unlike one or two apps (sorry, i'm telling no names...) that i've found out there, the dogs are actually cute and not creepy and ugly, and they look real. I really like things by The Dog, and that goes the same for this awesome app. It is totally worth the $5.00! You dont have to buy fake dog food with real money (that's insane!!).

This is the best !!

at first i was rly worried that this wuldnt be worth 5 bucks but i was definately wrong !! this app is the best app ever ! i loove it! im very very happy with this app.. i am a pre-teen who loves playing with puppys and now i can all the time! its pretty realistic. andd i'm sure you will hav a great time with your puppy! i LOVE how it tells u what to do step by step.. one con is that i wish there were more breeds ... like smaller puppies.. try chihuahua or daschund (sorry for the mispelling) ... i would very much definatly recromend this app!! i hope this helps (:
