Dogz 2 releases in the week that Crufts 2007 takes place - timely, say we - and invites the player to put an adorable pet in their DS. Your virtual pet will need feeding, watering, grooming and a little bit of discipline - just like a real animal. But most of all, it needs your love. You can train and groom your new companion to go on to fame and fortune in talent shows, or you can just let it soak up all the attention you can give. Either way, you have a wonderful new friend who is always ready to play.

Before you can start your new life together, you must choose a breed. Once you have chosen, you can select your animal's gender, a collar, fur pattern and coat colour. You also get to give it a name.

With a selection of different environments to keep your dog stimulated, and a host of items available to buy to keep it happy, including toys and chews, hopefully your new pet will take to its new surroundings sooner rather than later. Many accessories are available for purchase, along with house decor - any room in your house can be redecorated. Teaching your dog tricks is also a big part of the Dogz experience. When it learns a new trick, an icon appears over its body, and this is your cue to give it a vocal command. Your pet will learn to associate the trick with your command. A treat after each trick will encourage your pet to learn faster. Once you have trained it, it's time to get involved in talent shows to see how much money you can earn. More money means better essentials, more luxuries and a happier pet.
