- Ten tricks
- Six Competitions
After you pick a puppy you care for it by feeding, grooming, and training it which also earns you money to buy things. You are able to take your puppy for walks to allow to relieve itself.
The game has received largely negative reviews. It has been criticized for the low choice in breeds (only 6 compared to similar sims with 30+), choppy animation that could easily have been fixed, and unrealistic movements such as when feeding a puppy it would pick the food up in its mouth and tilt its head back much in the manner of geese and ducks without chewing or swallowing. Some parts of the game will be inaccessible or will not allow you to do anything else until you can get your puppy to perform a trick correctly which may become impossible due to hiccups and bugs in the game, most notably the roll over trick.
