on a Pedometer walk.

The Pedometer is a new feature introuced in Nintendogs + Cats and is the successor of Bark Mode.

When the 3DS is carried while walking or running, it counts the steps and for every 100 steps the player takes, they will receive a Play Coin and the data will be stored in their Activity Log. Up to 10 Play Coins can be only earned a day and 300 Play Coins can be stored in total. Therefore, at a rate of 1,000 steps per day, it would take 30 days (approximately one month) to reach the maximum amount of Play Coins.


When going on a pedometer walk, you must close your 3DS and walk (your dog will practically walk with you, virtually). If you don't want to walk or conditions aren't good for actual walking, you can shake your 3DS instead and its pedometer will count the shakes as steps. The more steps you take, the better the present you receive and the happier your dog will be. It gives you more Owner Points than going on a normal walk, and it will make your dog healthier.

To receive your present, all you have to do is open your 3DS, and your dog will bring the present to you. You can then close your 3DS again and walk some more. However, once you close your 3DS again, the quality of the present will depend on the additional steps that you take, not the total that you have taken.

Also, say you take 90 steps, then 99. You will get 9 biscuits for both amounts, therefore they are both in the nineties (90's).

Note: You will still receive Play Coins, even if the pedometer is only used in Nintendogs + Cats.
