AreasIcon.png This game has unused areas.
RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
*Lots of regional differences, including many English text differences.
  • Unused English descriptions for AR Camera-only items.
  • Check inside the USA and EUR kiosk and eShop demo version of the game for any unused and leftover stuff.

One of the few 3DS launch titles, this Nintendogs sequel adds fur to the dogs, improved StreetPass functionality, a revamped walking minigame, Miis, 3D effects, and......cats.

Unused Room


A texture-less, unused test room for your home. It seems to be shaped like the Designer Condo from its predecessor.

Regional Differences

Naming Your Puppy

The American and European voice clips are different when you are given examples of naming your pet.

US Europe
"Baxter, Sophie, Coco!" "Lady, Lucky!"


To do:
There are loads more. Get pictures, too.
  • The Journal was renamed to the Diary in the European version.
  • Doggie Custard is called Doggie Flan in the European version.

Unused Item


Unused sprite of the gun.

This gun is one of the objects in the folder item, but, alas, it's unused. This item has an unused sprite, as well.

Pew pew.

Unused Geometry


Behind the BARC Shop.

Inside the shop during a walk, there is some geometry that can't be seen because it is out of bounds of the shop.

Furniture Shop

Mmm hmm.

At the furniture shop, there is some hidden geometry.


Inside the Café, view from outside

The Café isn't free of unused geometry either. What appears to be an unused exit can be found behind where the girl would usually be.

Unused Accessories

During the game's first few months, several downloadable content were released. Japan got all of the AR Game-exclusive accessories while North America only got Luigi's Hat. However, those items can be obtained if one has a Japanese 3DS with all of the downloadable content so it could be streetpassed with the other-region 3DS, but it's very unlikely.

As Europe got no downloadable content at all, they also have unused European-English descriptions of accessory items!

Samus' Headgear

Guess what? It's unobtainable outside of Japanese-exclusive DLC. Whoopie.

This is only used during the A.R. minigame, so...yeah.

Unused Toys

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: I feel like some of these things are used.


Within the "element" folder, there are all toys, or items, for the dog/cat, but some objects are not available as items, as either another item is used instead or cannot be used as a plaything in general. For example, the Trophy.

How would one even play with this, anyway?

Biscuit Bags

Other objects that are not obtainable are Biscuit bags. The food is included at the "item" folder, too.

This too.
Kitty fun fun times


The piano is in this folder, too.

Well...you can play it, at least.


Oh yeah, this too.

Odd toys, they are.


Three guesses as to where it's obtainable.

Only used in contests.


Used only during walks.

A present? To who?

Tea and Cake

Appears to be a toy version of the object used when buying food in the cafe.

How do you even play with this?
