All versions of nintendogs are the same, just different dogs is all. It's quite a boring game. You just buy a dog and take care of it virtually is all. So you have to shower it, pet it, feed it, etc. you can also enroll your dog in a competition to earn more money. I think this is a great game for children. It has super cute graphics and the dogs are actually so adorable and unique. The dogs can even do tricks! If someone has the same game in their console, you guys can connect and your dogs can play together, which is adorable.
