Dogz invites the player to put an adorable puppy in their PC. Your amazing 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 little 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 from the following five pedigrees: Beagle, Border Collie, Pug, German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever. Once you choose, you can select your animal's gender, a collar, fur pattern and coat colour. You also get to give it a name.
There's a selection of different environments to keep your puppy stimulated, and a host of items available to buy to keep it happy, including toys and chews. Clothing and accessories are also 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 your dog learns a new trick, an icon appears over its body, and this is your cue to give it a vocal command. Like a real dog, the animal 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 your dog, 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 dog.
