The newsboy hat (newsboy cap in the 3DS version) is a type of headgear that can be found on walks. In Nintendogs it can be sold for $16. In Nintendogs + Cats it can be bought from Coletta for $22 after unlocking it with 3,000 Owner Points or playing for at least 14 days.
In Nintendogs the hat has a short brim, with everything except the white button top having vertical blue, white, and light green stripes all over. In Nintendogs + Cats the cap is instead a checkered blue.
